one issue...if phone in direct sunlight...dock and phone get very hot.
Another issue...if using Samsung cover it barely fits in the dock.
1. The sliding micro USB connector connects and disconnects from the device very easily.
2. Many apps have functionality that is only activated when dock connector is engaged (eg. Spotify actually switches to landscape orientation).
3. The phone fits the mount perfectly, and looks nice mounted on the dash.
1. There is very annoying interference from the car engine when using the audio out from the dock. I tried two chargers (including the official Samsung car adapter), and two audio cables, thinking it may be a grounding issue, but the interference remains. My Kensington LiquidAUX Bluetooth hands-free/charger has no interference at all, so I have to suspect this dock is at fault.
2. The package did NOT include the mounting plate that was advertised.
3. The suction cup doesn't adhere to any surface (including the glass) for longer than 15 minutes without falling off. The mounting plate would probably solve this had it been included. I was uncomfortable leaving my phone in the unit for fear it would take fall damage, until I worked around it by milling two channels through the base with a Dremel tool, and driving two bolts directly through it and into my dash, mounting it very securely.
4. The dock angles up and out at a steep angle, and the plastic isn't rigid enough to support the weight of the phone, causing it to shake a great deal while driving. The phone fits so tightly that it's in no danger of falling out, but the rattling noises caused by this are extremely annoying. I fashioned a kick-stand out of a small aluminum rod to solve this, but a product should not require this many workarounds.
I can't fault Samsung for their precision engineering on this, but this dock is incompatible with every case I have, including the 0.2mm ultra-thin case I purchased hoping it would fit. If you feel a case is a necessity to protect your camera lens, look for a different dock.
The product is solid and of good quality. It does not appear cheap.
My only complaint is that the arm seems a little short. It fits perfect on the center part of the windshield, but i prefer my dock on the left side, so it does not fit well on that section. I assumed its because of the size.
The obvious workaround is to plug the audio out into the phone's headphone jack... But it would be nice to have a permanent setup where I could just leave the audio out line into the dock's audio jack. Then I could just pop the phone into the dock and be on my way. But as it stands right now, I have to put the phone in the dock, find the audio cable, and plug it into the headphone jack of the phone before I put the car in gear. Then when I get to my destination, I have to unplug the audio cable from the phone before I pop it out of the dock. It's an extra step that would be unnecessary if the dock's audio jack produced bass.
The good: The Galaxy Note fits well in it, and it holds it safely. When the phone is inserted in the mount, it automatically turns on the voice command and response system, which seems to work pretty well.
The not so good, but also no unexpected: You can't have any case, not even a very thin silicon sleeve, on your phone, or it won't fit in the mount. So either you use no case, or you have to put in on and take it off every time use the mount. Again, not unexpected, as it would be difficult to build the mount to accept the wide variety of cases/sleeves available.
The bad: The one thing that keeps me from using this mount is the limited range of adjustment on the head swivel. If the mount is attached to the windshield, I can adjust the phone to the proper viewing angle. If I use a dash mount, which is my preference, the phone won't quite tilt far enough, which can lead to excessive glare on the screen. Also, some states have laws restricting anything from being mounted on the windshield.
In conclusion, I will keep tring to make this work for me, but in the meantime, I have gone back to my Garmin for now.
