It usually takes a lot to get me to complain, but I think someone from Verizon needs to explain this.  On the latest update (1.70.605.0), it specifically says "Desktop cradle App is now available, showing clock in landscape mode.".  Okay I got 2 desktop cradles (one from Seidio and the other is the HTC version) and I have not been able to find this Desktop Cradle App that Verizon said was available.  I have looked on Verizon's website and all the Droid Market, but I have not found an app with that name.  Now I did find numerous "Car Dock" apps on the Droid Market, but I am looking for one that will show the clock on the home screen in landscape mode when I insert my phone into it.  There was a setting on the phone prior to the last update, but now it does not show up any more.

Does the phone automatically recognize the dock when the phone is put in the HTC dock and change the Homescreen to the landscape mode?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Sorry for some odd reason it gave me an error message and I didn't realize that it had actually posted the message. 

 

No, it doesn't change for either of the docks. I tried both ways of connecting the docks (connecting to computer and connecting to AC) I was hoping that maybe when you put the phone in the dock that car dock setting would re-appear, but it doesn't.

The app is installed. From your description, it doesn't sound like it is enabled.

You can find the app by looking at the all applications.
Go to settings > applications > manage applications > all tab > scroll down to "Dock Mode Lite".

I see the same thing on mine.  I think the latest update removed the app, but left the marker for the filename (I know a little about computers). Its like creating a new folder on your computer and putting nothing into it.  The folder is there, but it has nothing in it.  I also found another app listed called "Car Panel" that shows the same zeros on everything.

Your Kidding right?? Did you even READ these Post??? We are talking about an AP that was soposed to come with the lattest Firmware Update sent in July. ALSO if you bothered to read the post you woudl have seen that we have mentioned that the AP in question shows up in the Ap manager lsiting but shows that ther is no date for it at all AND is likely an empty folder. 

 

Im amazed that a rep for Verizon woudl simply responded blindly to a post and give advice with out reading the post that lead up to it. The amount of headacks that coudl cause a customer are endless. Plese next time read befor you post expcialy if your going to represent Verizon and gve Tec advice.
