    My car mount that works with a case!

    So I have always wanted a car mount for my phones that will work with a case. I dont like the suction to the windsheild unit's, hated the ones that clipped into the vents and really couldnt do the ones that plug in the lighter area (I drive a manual and it would be right in the way).

    I discovered this place: Car Mounts & Holders - iPodCarParts.com: iPod Parts And Accessories . I saw the owner post on this forum a few weeks back and shot him a pm asking if he made anything for my car, 2006 WRX. I was shocked when he replied with a detailed picture of a custom mount for my car, and it was universal, AND it worked with phones with cases. I switch phones a lot so this is huge for me.

    I ordered the mount and it was to my door within a few buisness days and I just got around to installing it. First off, it mounts behind the dash, bolting to a bolt that holds the radio in place. Its SUPER solid, no bouncing around at all. The install was straight foward and took a whole 15 minutes if you know what your doing. I highly suggest this mount to anybody case or no case.

    Here is a picture that I took, it didnt turn out the greatest but you get the idea.

    Weird, but I switch mine back and forth when navigating. Heading north/south I keep it portrait, east/west I keep it landscape. This way you see most of what's ahead of you. So, we need an "autoswivel" mount! I actually keep mine just setting on my panel deck - viewed just below my gauges. Always in eyesight line, minimal down glance. Of course, city traffic I don't keep reaching over and flipping the phone a lot - I'm talking more highway use here.

    I honestly dont use my naviagation all that much, I know how to get around MN since I have lived here my whole life. Having it swivel would be nice, but definetly not needed.

    I believe he also offers this mount with magnets on the back to enable the nav when mounted.

    Its nice to see people from MN, And you are right MN is pretty easy to navigate being here forever but its good for going out of town to different places or even out of state.

    Basically the exact set up I have, just on the other side of the radio (closer to the steering wheel). Nav works fine in portrait, and I too prefer it over the landscape view.

    Ya, I love this mount. I have yet to have a complaint about it. I see lots of people looking for a good mount and this one really fits the bill.
