I know for a fact that the Motorola Droid uses MICRO-B and several reviews referred to this product as working fine with it. So something must be wrong. Now I have to buy a new MICRO-B cable so I can have one always in my truck with the dock for charging and one at home for transferring media. I hate to give the dock such a low rating, because it does what it is designed to do rather well. But I think it should have come with the proper connector for newer ANDROID phones.
EDIT: I am revising this review and giving the product 5 stars. Because of the original 3 star review, I was contacted by the vendor (AccessoryGenie) about the missing USB cable. They promptly sent me out a replacement cable that would work with my phone. Awesome customer service! I rely on reviews to help me make good purchasing decisions, so I wanted to relay my experience to help others in a similar situation. Job well done AccessoryGenie!
There are a number of major issues with this equipment:
1. Unlike the product picture, which leads you to believe the mount is separate from a cord to the cigarette lighter, it's all one solid piece. This means that if your cigarette lighter is in the middle near the stick shift, it's too low to view the phone safely. Alternatively, if the cigarette lighter has an inset mount (like on a Honda CR-V), the phone has to lean forward making it near-impossible to view.
2. Because the cigarette lighter provides the support for the entire unit and your phone, it doesn't sit in the socket snugly in either case, wobbles around constantly and falls out, or disconnects without you noticing.
3. The flexible neck is too flexible for the weight of the phone (HTC Hero), so it slowly collapses in either position. Given the weight of the Hero, I'm not sure any phone would be light enough to stop this from happening.
Conversely, the FM-broadcast feature of this mount works just fine though, as an aside for the HTC Hero, you can't charge and listen to music through the audio jack at the same time. This isn't a fault of this mount, but there's not much point in buying an FM-broadcast mount when you can't charge simultaneously, so make sure your phone has both a USB and audio jack port available.
So overall it's pretty disappointing - if anyone else has found a good mount for the Hero, please leave me a comment!
One downside that I found was the placement of the USB power outlet on the device. It is on the right side and I feel that it just sticks out there. It hasn't been a problem though. The other downside is the audio plug should have been a 90 degree plug because it sticks out of the top of the Hero a bit too far.
With free shipping the cost was 32 dollars in all and made this combo mount the cheapest out of those I researched. Despite the low price the build was fairly solid, no moving parts, no movements on bumpy roads to my relief.
It came with 2 usb wires depending on your phone I suppose but it is excessively long for its purpose so it creates a bit of an eyesore if you don't manage to take care of it. the wire to connect the sound also adds to a messy look. So picture the product image with one wire loop from the left to right side that dangles excessively from behind, and a wire loop top to right side. Only reason I mention this is that it makes the effective size larger than what's pictured on amazon-- thus far less sleek and minimal.
I don't get any static while not connecting the wire for charging. Its crystal clear actually and was quite impressed. However while I do connect the usb wire to charge the Droid, I do hear static, and while for audiobooks its not so bad, for music it almost makes it a deal breaker. Really have to think twice about charging and listening to music. I'll continue to research this however and post a solution if I find one. It might need additional grounding I can only guess.
