    Droid car docks that work with cases

    As promised I finally have pictures to post of the 3 versions of Droid mounts I tested with cases. The holder includes the magnet which allows the Droid to automatically enter car mode when seated. The 3 options are a cigarette lighter mount, a window mount, and a vehicle specific mount which is probably the nicest but also the most expensive way to go. If demand warrants, I may make a cupholder version as well. In the meantime here are the pictures. Send me a private message for more information!

    Vehicle specific would work for me...

    Cupholder adapter

    Since you asked, here is a cupholder adapter that works with most windshield mounts. I have just discovered we can also modify another cupholder specific mount and I'm going to post a picture in a few minutes.

    a car dock which you can seat like the desktop dock (only more securely, obviously), in that you don't need to plug in the power SEPERATELY, would be nice, I'm amazed the official car dock isn't designed that way.&lt;br /&gt;<br />
    BUT, if there's anyone out there taking suggestions for a third-party car dock, here's my ideas:&lt;br /&gt;<br />
    1. a silghtly smaller, but more secure suction mount (for a suction mount version, anyway), I know it's doable somehow&lt;br /&gt;<br />
    2. built in power connection, with a low-profile DC apapter (think <a href="http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=489423http://www.rocketfishproducts.com/pc-209-7-rocketfish-usb-vehicle-power-adapter.aspx" target="_blank">belkin's</a> or <a href="http://www.rocketfishproducts.com/pc-209-7-rocketfish-usb-vehicle-power-adapter.aspx&amp;quot; target=&amp;quot;_blank" target="_blank">rocketfish's</a>) with an extra (or 2 even) USB output (I only have one ciggy lighter)&lt;br /&gt;<br />
    3. a longer (double-jointed maybe) arm. I have mine mounted way down near the dash of my honda civic, which makes it so I have to lean forward to operate it, but mostly out of my view of the road. a longer arm would fix that problem nicely

    I just ordered the cigaretter lighter/dash bracket combo with the magnet! Will write a review when it comes..

    I bought a couple cases for my droid and ended up returning them once I realized I couldn't use them with the motorola car dock. Then I ended up returning the car dock because after all it is specifically for the droid and let's face it , I will have this phone for maybe a year and a half, then once I get a new phone the dock would be obsolete! This universal holder will accomodate future device's as well. Much better option!
