Launching the dock six months later than the phone is not a smart move and now I've got it I can't see why we've had to wait so long. I placed my order in December but finally the Galaxy Nexus Car Dock has arrived. At the list price it feels expensive but at the prices I'm starting to see now it is in stock it feels reasonable - but only just.

Mounting: The cradle will only mount onto glass or another equally smooth surface as it uses the suction cup mechanism. Put the mount flat onto the windscreen, push a small lever down and hey presto - you're good to go. Samsung do not provide any additional hardware to allow you to mount on the dash, so if you've no room on the windscreen I advise you to look at other docks instead.

It is also worth observing that a badly placed dock, given its size, could be a dangerous obstruction if badly positioned - I find these things are best placed on the right-hand side of the windscreen at eye level - and definitely not under the rear view mirror.

The Dock: The dock itself looks huge (and it is big) but is also lightweight. The size is emphasised by the thick plastic shell the phone sits in which has a 6mm thick border all round. Volume and power controls are duplicated and the three power pins are there to charge, together with holes for the two microphones top and bottom, and cut-outs for the speaker and camera. At the base of the mount there is a USB 3 socket and stereo output so you can use Samsung's own car charging lead (provided) as well as something like the Belkin Tunecast to send audio to your car stereo if you lack bluetooth connectivity.

In Use: Getting the phone in and out is a minor struggle.

This really is a poor show, especially after waiting months for it.

As mentioned, the mechanism for getting the phone in and out is a joke. Getting it in feels like the buttons on the side of the phone will be ripped of. Getting it out usually results in the phone flying across the car and hitting the floor, and/or the dock coming off the windscreen.

Add to this that when you use the sat-nav on Google maps the voice directions are routed to the line out jack, meaning you have to have this connected to the car stereo to use it and can't listen to the radio or the CD at the time, and it takes it down from a two star to a one star review.

Firstly, it's a very stylish and well thought out product. Looks nice, comes in a very big box for what it is, but the supplied microUSB-lighter port cable is nice and long (about 1.5m), so you should be able to mount it where you want it. It's got the usual suction cup mounting which is easy to get to stick to the windscreen and other such very smooth surfaces. You'll need to buy yourself a separate 3.5mm audio cable to pipe audio into your car stereo (assuming you're not Bluetoothing).
Getting the phone into the dock can be tricky - it is a very snug fit as everyone notes, and there is a knack for popping it out by pressing through in a corner of the cut-out for the camera - even if you still have to use a fair amount of force.
My main niggle is that the car mode in the Galaxy Nexus doesn't pipe the audio from a phone call through the line out of the car dock (I am on Jelly Bean OS) but from reading the forums this seems to be a bug in the software, not the dock as the music audio is fine. Am hoping for a fix to that soon!

Like the desk dock, this is a good solid product, which gives you plenty of confidence that it'll hold your phone securely whilst driving. The included charger is powerful enough to charge the phone while navigating, although I haven't done any long journeys with it yet.

If you have Android 4.0.4+ and root, you can install the Car Home app that was available in previous versions of Android, which will open as soon as you dock your phone. I'm not sure why the app has been marked as incompatible on Google Play as it works perfectly.

The only negative thing I have to say about the dock is that it grips the phone so well, it's almost difficult to undock it. Oh, that and, why the hell has it taken Samsung 6 months to make this available!?!

I finally received this highly anticipated car dock.

The good:

It's a rather elegant solution. It looks quite good, the phone sits tightly in the dock, and the contacts on the side of the phone simply connects when docked. The suction cup handle for tightening and releasing the mount is nicely "hidden" in the foot, and the AUX port connects to the cars AUX port.

Another fine feature is the ability to use the camera while mounted. Good thinking Google/Samsung!

The phone can be rotated, so it can be used in horizontal or vertical position, and the home screen also rotates while powered by the dock!

The slightly bad:

It's a very tight fit, and the volume and on/off buttons will be pressed when mounting and unmounting the phone. (I have improved it slightly by cutting away ½-1 mm of the edge where the buttons go into the dock. Now I can insert the phone much more easily and without pushing the buttons. Why was this not done by Samsung??!)

Unfortunately incoming calls can only be shown in vertical ("portrait"), but I hope this will be solved in a later version of Android (I'm using Android Ice Cream Sandwich, version 4.0.2)
