Motorola DROID BIONIC Vehicle Navigation Dock Hands-on

Motorola DROID BIONIC Vehicle Navigation Dock Hands-on
Do you plan on traveling in the car a lot with your brand spanking new Motorola DROID BIONIC? Well folks, you might want to consider picking up the Vehicle Navigation Dock for the highly prized smartphone as a complementary gift to yourself since it offers a lot of ease in getting to your destination without being distracted by other things.

First and foremost, it’s worth noting that the Vehicle Navigation Dock does not increase or enhance the smartphone’s GPS signal strength – but rather, it’s nothing more than your typical suction style accessory for your vehicle. Luckily, that suction is pretty strong and requires a good amount of force to remove – even when it’s loosened a bit by unclasping the latch. In addition, you can rotate the dock to the angle that’s most optimal to your viewing pleasure.

Once the handset is in position, it automatically launches the dedicated navigation interface powered by Google Maps Navigation. Naturally, the nice thing about it all is that it sports some very finger-friendly icons that make it super convenient to peruse the interface. Besides the normal set of navigation-oriented functionality, we’re also able to access some of the phone’s core functions – like our contacts list, phone dialer, and music player.

For $39.99, it might not be too bad of an investment considering the kind of functionality it brings to the table – well, it beats having to fumble around through the usual Android menus.

I'm tired of these navigation docks specific for 1 phone they need to make it more universal. I don't want to buy a new one every year to 2 years. Plus then you'd be able to use it with a case on your phone

You could buy that one for I'm sure at least $40 or a universal one for $25 that does the exact same job.
