    Generic Car Mount for Droid to use GPS

    So I want a car dock. OEM won't work because I have a seidio case on it. I was going to use the seidio car dock. My first hesitation was the price. $50 is kind of steep, but also it hasn't been getting great reviews on here.

    I assume there's a universal mount out there that will work and I could just add a small magnet to put it in nav mode. Anyway, what are mounts are other people using?

    Not interested in the proclips mount because it mounts down low and to the right in my car. I want it up close to my view of the road.

    well I say windshielf mounted, but I'll probably end up buying a dash plate to stick to the dash and then putting the suction cup on that. Just needs to be portable, not permanent.

    Looks like I might go with something like this http://www.motoroladroidaccessories....ount-2786.html

    I can get the grip-it thing but attach to a different mount. I'm not sure how this particular mount with the long flexible "neck" would hold up to road vibration. Bracketron has several sturdy looking windshield/dash mounts I could use.

    Panavise might offer other locations for the vehicle mount but that's irrelevant anyway. Your Droid wouldn't fit the ProClip device holder with a case on it.

    Think I'm going to end up with the bracketron grip-it attachment and attached to one of their mounting arms, either dash mounted, or friction mounted, haven't decided.

    The one with the 9 inch neck? I think it's probably too long for me (That's what she said). Also not sure how a neck that long would hold up to decent vibrations which I will have. Bracketron makes a short mount that extend to like 4 or 5 inches, but looks a lot more sturdy. I think that would serve my purposes well.

    I got the official Motorola droid mount. Have not had any problems with it. Comes with a car charger and only cost me 8 bucks from Amazon.
