Hi Chuck - You mentioned cutting the zcover to fit in your docking system. I just got my zcover and it is great. However I use the JBL on stage speaker at work and I found today that I was not able to have my ipod sit in there with the cover on. I'd rather not have to take it on and off - a bit of a nuisance and afraid it will scratch rubbing the screen protector on and off like that.
You mentioned cutting slits in it on the sides and back so you can "flip it up". What sort of slits did you make, does it still protect it enough? Could you further explain? I don't want to try and then destroy my cover.
