Finally the Nexus one car dock has arrived. I was happy when Google started shipping the Nexus One car dock. It is was an amazingly missing accessories for the Nexus one. It is not just a car holder but a real car dock with plenty of features.
The Nexus One car dock uses bluetooth to communicate with the Nexus One and automatically establishes a connection when the phone is inserted. The Car Home application is then launched with allows the user easy access to Maps and Navigation, Contacts, and Voice Search. Built-in speakers provide music playback and calls using the speakerphone.
From Google: The Nexus One Car Dock is the perfect place to put your phone when you are in the car. In addition to holding your Nexus One, the car dock also charges your phones battery, it let you use your phone handsfree, and provides easier access to voice and navigation apps.
The docks built-in speakers and volume controls also enhance the in-car music and media experience. And the Car Home app, which loads automatically, makes it easy to access Maps and Navigation, Voice Search, Contacts, and Music.
You can mount the dock on the windshield or dashboard, and it ships with an adhesive disc that lets you attach it to a textured surface as well. The dock comes with a charger to fit into your cars 12V utility socket, and the holder can rotate for flexible orientation.
The only thing I was hoping for Extra is to have an FM modulator, where it will play the music through the car stereo. Though the Car dock speakers are quite sufficient.
Many of you will wonder about certain features of the car dock & what does it support. For that below you will find Google Faqs of the Google Dock Station.
