    Considering the big noise they made about nokia maps and nokia drive, is there (or will there be) a car dock for the 920? I would LOVE a Nokia Lumia 920 specific dock for my car!

    Not sure I'll wait for a Nokia branded car dock, but if they did have one coming out soon I would try to order one. The only thing that would prevent me from doing so would be cost. If it is overpriced I will find something just as refined.

    I've been using these for years and they are great. I am using the large adjustable until they come out with model specific in about a month.

    i'd love a car dock with qi charging and nfc to trigger nokia drive.

    I spend at least 12 hours a week in my car, so it would be helpful.

    A 920 specific car dock would be awesome to be sure. I would absolutely get one. Does anyone know if WP8 has a "car mode" like android does where everything goes landscape automatically?

    ProClip will almost certainly be coming out with a dock soon... they do for pretty much every phone ever and I've been extremely happy with the Lumia 900 and GSIII docks I bought from them. MUCH better than lame windshield mounts.

    I think the dock on the WPCentral store looks pretty good: iBOLT ProDock Alumina - Windows Phone Car Mounts - The WP Central Store $29.99 right now.

    By the way - wireless charging on the dock, seems to be nonsense :) While you will still need a cable to the dock.
    The only good stuff would be NFC activation of some apps and horizontal screen.

    This is the official Nokia dash mount. However Nokia doesn't have a store so you have to buy it from a third party and I haven't seen it in the WP Central store. Found it sold here, Nokia Universal Car Holder CR-123 :: MobileFun.com. Just search for Nokia Universal Car Holder CR-123 to find it.

    Agreed. Something is going to have to be plugged in. However, having wireless charging from the dock would eliminate needing to do an extra step when taking the phone out or putting it into the dock. The dock itself can be left plugged in. So from that standpoint, I like the idea of a wireless charging aspect to the dock.

    As for the rest, the NFC aspect and the taking everything to landscape mode does appeal to me. It was a very useful thing on my android phone and I already miss it in WP8.

    The issue I see with the 920 that wasn't there with the 900 is that the audio and charger are now on separate ends. It just looks ridiculous with cables coming of both ends. And even without using it for navigation while it sits in my cupholder, one of those cables will be smashed while it sits there.

    Have to agree, it looks silly. Not sure why they did this. I prefer charge port on side and audio on top.

    Agreed, and it makes it difficult to run the cables together and keep them out of the way. Hopefully, we will not have long to wait for a dock that includes charging and automatic landscape mode!

    I use a ProClip for my car. I have one of their more universal ones thats adjustable, it fit my iPhone 5, my Lumia 900 and Galaxy Note. So I assume it will fit my 920 when it comes in.

    It looks like this one here:

    another vote for proclipusa, I've used them since my Zunes to the Zune HD to all my previous WinMo and WPs and vehicles, getting the 920 as soon as they have the mount made, hopefully they do wireless charging or leave room for the wireless charging plate, the one for my Zune HD and the HD7 had a gap big enough behind the device for me to use adhesive on the plate, maybe this will too.

    Yeah, I actually e-mailed them to ask and they said yes they do plan to. They can't give me an exact timeframe because they're busy working on a bunch of docks for other phones too. I think they just said something like 3-4 weeks after the phone's launch.

    I want one. I bought a generic one from at&t the other day and it seems as though its not stable enough for my 920, because of the weight.

    I like that. The only concern with the 920 would be the camera button location.
