    Create Widget to open Media Dock:

    Long-press on an open homepage space
    Select 'Task' widget under 'Android widgets'
    Hit the (+) button when the Widget Configure screen appears
    Select App>Load App>Desk Home>Done
    (Add other tasks as needed)
    Select the 'New' button on the main Widget Config screen and enter the name you would like for the widget.
    Select the blue (?)>Application Icon>Desk Home to select the widget icon
    Select Make Widget

    Now you should have a widget that will open the media dock without having to buy a faker or use a magnet.

    Car Dock

    I'm going to post one I use for my car dock. Does anyone know how to just create a link to download a profile directly? Until then I am stuck using a walk-through. Sorry for the length.

    Goal: Set up the phone to enable GPS and Bluetooth and maximize the ringer volume when it is put into the car dock. If you use the Motorola car mount, use option one. If you use an after-market mount, use option two. Sorry but docking and opening the app are two different things.

    Opt 1: Moto Car Mount
    From the main Tasker page, select: New>State>Docked
    Select Type:Car and hit done.
    Note: When the program runs the first time, it will ask you whether you want to complete the task using Car Dock or Tasker; Select Tasker.

    Opt 2: After-Market
    From the main Tasker page, select: New>App>Car Dock
    UPDATE: just tried the after-market one and it disabled everything when I tried to use voice search. I'll try to figure this out and post soon.
    UPDATE: Fixed check out post below.

    When this is done, it should prompt you to create a enter task
    Select: New>Name your task ("Car Dock Open")
    GPS: Select (+)>Misc>GPS>Set>On>Done
    Bluetooth: Select (+)>Net>Bluetooth>Set>On>Done
    Ringer: Select (+)>Audio>Ringer Volume>Level 15>Done
    Add any extra tasks you might like
    Select done

    This should take you back to the main screen.
    Find your new profile and press the Enter Task>Add Exit Task
    Select: New>Name your task ("Car Dock Close")
    Note: You do not need to turn off Bluetooth or GPS as this will be done automatically
    Ringer: Select (+)>Audio>Ringer Volume>Level 9 (or what ever)>Done
    Add any extra tasks you might like
    Select done

    Should be automatic for you now. Here are some extras you might like:
    Only enable when docked and plugged in: Press the docked context on the main Tasker page>Add>State>Power>Source Any>Done.
    Popup when enabled/disabled: Press the Enter Task>Edit>(+)>Alert>Popup>Text: "GPS and Bluetooth Enabled">Done>Done. Press the exit task and follow the same for a exit popup.

    Thanks nojogray! It will be good to see more of the profiles posted here.

    If you don't mind me asking, what else do you use the Tasker app for? What other type of profiles and what words of advice can you or the OP offer in its use?

    When I plug my headphones in it opens the music app and sets the volume
    When I go home, it turns Wifi on unless its after midnight
    When I am at home between 10pm and 530am, it goes to vibrate so I don't wake the Wife.

    I am still trying to come up with some more. I love this app and I hope people will post their cool ideas soon. I am still trying to learn the whole thing but I find that the best way is to start messing around and if you trip up then read the users manual. If you have any cool ideas please let us know.

    I downloaded this yesterday and was so impressed with it's potential that I purchased a key for it this morning.
    In addition to all of the Droid control functions that it is capable of, it will also import and export profile xml files to the SD card.
    The Tasker Wiki has some basic profiles that can be imported and I went through the process on one of them this morning just to verify that they will work.
    I also created a couple of basic profiles that turn my GPS on when I use Google Maps and Navigator then exported both of them.
    I manage websites and would be willing to create an online storage location where users can download profile xml files from if there is enough interest.
    Contributions would have to be emailed to me as attachments which I can upload since I do not have anonymous FTP capability through my host.

    I use Setting Profiles instead of Tasker, find it much more intuitive and it was quite easy to set up my phone to turn sound on in the dock and vibrate on when out, as well as adjust media volume, screen brightness, etc, for the car dock.

    I'm gonna try setting profiles first, so I don't have to pay for another app!

    Great - it will be good to get a review on it as well...that way when new users (and old ones too) are looking for this we will have many options for them. I was never a fan of locale but I am liking Tasker...

    I have both but Tasker is pretty darned versatile although it does have a learning curve.
    I just created a very quick app in Tasker that Turns my GPS on when Maps app is loaded then turns it back off when it exits. Slick

    Just curious if that can be done in Setting Profiles easily since I don't use it that much.
