i was planning on mounting mine in my rhino! the gps function will be sweet.
I used to have one of those cheap USB stick looking MP3 players mounted on my bike. I made a little circuit from a board mount USB socket and a 5v. regulator and hooked it right to the battery. I then ran a 3.5mm headphone extension cord under my tank and it came up right infront of the seat. Then I put my earbuds in my helmet and ran the cord down through my jacket. You could do something similar for your constant power.
You could also probably make a little bracket off of the mirror bolts.
FYI motorcycle suction mounts........
Not sure what type of cup your using, purchased a motorola GPS this summer and tried to use suction mount just as the picture shows. Worked great for a few miles riding, vibration (I think) eventually caused it to fail. Not a good thing when traveling 65 mph down freeway.
Look into the ram mounts, they bolt on, making them permanently secured. Hate to think of you choosing to steer or catch you droid....................
We have two mounts made for motorcycles and bikes which you might like- a low profile bar mount and a raised profile bar mount. Here's a picture of the item shown without the optional sekure strap retention band:
You can read more about it here: Motorcycle/Bicycle Swivel Mount for Electronic Devices by: iGrip -
Here's the low profile version as seen on my mountain bike: Motorcycle/Bicycle Low-Profile Mount for Electronic Devices by: iGrip. On a personal note, I do not recommend using your beautiful new Droid on a mountain bike- the holder shown in the picture on my bicycle took a dirt nap after a particularly nasty crash and is no longer with us. Thankfully I was not using a device in it at the time!

Verizon + Droid = The only way to go mobile!
