No where on the iBolt website does it say there is a 3.5mm out from this dock. Also, if your phone is not charging while using the nav in the dock, it is the charger, not the dock. I have used this for racing and it works great. The mount is out of the way of the camera and I am able to record video, pull course data, and use the telemetry from the phone to make videos with that info on screen.

I had the same problem as a previous review with the HTC Rezound cradle not charging properly on long drives. I called the iBOLT companys office number, +1 435.674.3512 and they sent me a replacement immediately and this works flawless.
nice product with s lot of benefit

I like the cradle how it works, we have 3 new HTC phones in our company, and everybody has different cases on. In this way all can use the same cardock, we only need to change the insert, which is very easy to do. Good idea to do this, I never saw a cradle solution like this. The electronics worked perfect and chaged the phone during using GPS functions. the suction cup is a market standard and worked fine.
Discharges while running navigation

Great fit, easy to use
Doesnt charge battery with navigation running
Ive had the same problem as another reviewer. I thought perhaps something was wrong with my charger. When running navigation, the unit will run out of battery despite being plugged into the charger. This should never happen.

Nice fit and finish
Nice piece but it wont charge the phone with navigation running and for some reason it launches WiFi. Who needs WiFi active in their car?
Ive tried and tried but it just wont work on long trips, within 3 hours on a full charge the battery is completely dead and I have to remove the phone from the cradle and plug the charger straight into it. In that configuration, while running navigation I can get the battery to fully charged in under an hour.
