    Car mount?

    I'm looking for a decent / cheap car mount (really don't want to drop $50 unless its a necessity) that fits with the Droid X Shell / Holster Combo that Verizon sells. I want one where I don't have to take the case off of the actual phone (which obviously, I'd be taking the holster off :P) everytime I get into my car.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, do not want a vent style clip nor do I want one that will cover up my power outlet.

    Any suggestions?

    I use a Bracketron. They have many mounting options, and the universal holder is very adjustable (worked on my HTC Touch, Touch Pro, Omnia II, Droid, Incredible, and Droid X (don't ask....).

    Many local electronics stores carry at least some of the mounts (Best Buy, Micro Center, even Target0 if you don't want to buy online.

    I think I like this one from that Bracketron site. I'm going to check out Best Buy later and see if they have anything similar to that.

    I suspect I will end up with a hybrid system, cannibalizing a Moto OEM car mount, mating it with this babe, had
    one in my old car and loved it:

    ARKON SR088-TS-1





    It bolts straight into the front left passenger seat bolt.

    JB Weld of course is the adhesive of choice for brutes

    Well that's what I want. I don't really like vertical mounts but the one I posted can rotate so that's why I was considering it. I've actually considering making something myself but I rather just have it look all neat :P

    Oops, found cheaper horizontal holder to mate with the Arkon:

    Mobi 70072 $15 Amazon:



    Just cut off vent mount, JB Weld it to the Arkon, nice cable
    management job with electric tape

    And BTW i ended up ordering the Arkon Sirius mount, combined
    price with ship from Amazon well rated merchants $34, good deal,
    if you don't consider the elbow work to follow, but i luv tinkering.

    Nice thing about the above is that my Amzer Snap-On Limited Edition Skin can fit. It looks
    fabulous but no OEM car or home docks for
    users of this accessory I still would not part
    with it, esp that it allows easy sliding in and out
    of the belt pouches, as opposed to the sticky rubberized ones.

    The Bracketron links were very helpful; I'm gonna get one of those. Thanks!
