What is dock mode and how do I use it ?


Dock Mode is a feature that can be found on some phones including many of the Samsung phones.

Dock Mode is different on different phones but it often turns your phone into a desk clock, photo slideshow viewer, or music player. You can also set it as a speakerphone when you receive calls.

Dock mode is not a feature that can be found on every phone or every version of a phone. For example Samsung Galaxy S2, S3, and S4 have a dock mode but the S5 does not. Please check your phone features to make sure your phone is equipped with dock mode.  

Some of our docks are equipped with a dock mode feature designed inside the dock itself, and for other docks we included our specially designed dock mode cable. Please see below to see how they work.




RND charge and dock mode cable is designed to charge and place your phone into dock mode automatically when plugged into your phone or RND Samsung docking stations.

After connecting to the cable a Samsung clock widget will pop up and you can create custom shortcut widgets to easily access your favorite apps. In addition, this cable uses new technology recently built into Samsung phones and will charge your phone 30% faster than normal cables.

PLEASE NOTE: This cable cannot be used for syncing data and is only built for charging.

You can find these dock mode cables on any of the marketplaces that we sell our products including the two links you see below:



If your dock is equipped with dock mode it will have a switch on the back and will also have an audio out option.

Here are the instructions for dock mode and audio out.

To place your phone into dock mode turn the switch on the back towards the speaker, this will automatically cause the Samsung clock widget will pop up.

If for some reason it does not, there is a good chance that something needs to be checked or unchecked somewhere inside your settings.

You can connect the dock to an external speaker system using an auxiliary audio cable.

You will need to go to the phone settings click "accessory" and check "speaker out" in dock mode. Turn your phone volume up to the max setting and your speaker will control the volume. Make sure the back of the cradle switch is towards the speaker icon.

If you want to sync you need to be out of dock mode by toggling the switch on the back of the cradle to the sync icon.
