I have a Pixel 2 XL preordered which is intended to be a development and testing workhorse which will be connected to all sorts of devices in vehicles, at desks, in the field. I need a dock for it.
All of the ports I need are included in devices like this dock. USB 3.1 Type C gen2, Gigabit ethernet, SD card slot, 2 or more USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, PD pass thru charging. The problem with this product is that I do not want to carry it around plugged into my phone dangling from the USB port. The dock and phone need to join to be carried as a single brick. I need either
a) a dock with these features specifically designed to cradle the Pixel 2 XL body, not just its USB port. Also, add a 3.5mm audio jack to the list of ports.
b) a dumb Pixel 2 XL cradle which I can attach to the above or similar dock with epoxy. Once mounted and plugged in, I would then mold sugru around the USB cord and allow it to cure. This should result in a DIY equivalent to a).
Has anyone seen or heard of either of these? If not, chances are this will get someone started developing one.
