    Before Verizon or Sprint customers order from overseas, they need to realize that the car dock uses the three pins on the side of the Nexus and is only for the GSM version – the non-GSM versions don’t fit.

    There is a great project going on to make this available for the LTE Galaxy Nexus! Major props to this guy- he was able to create a working pogo car dock for the LTE version by enhancing the car dock currently available for the device. Check it out. http://www.indiegogo.com/3-pin-dock
