    Kill Car mount or phone case?

    Hi all,

    I bought a car mount from Verizon that will recharge my Droid X while docked. Well the issue now is that my Droid X will not fit into the car mount because the phone case is in the way. I dont want to take the case off everytime i want to dock my phone in the car...

    The car mount did have an option that allows the docking area to expand out (little plastic thing slides out opening up more room/space) for a phone that may have a case scenario....but even that was too small for my phone + case to fit. My phone case is super slim and tight on the phone...any thinner and it will be like seran wrap which renders the case useless to protectin the phone from scratches and potential soft drops.

    Should i dump the car mount and get another brand or find a better phone case...
    Any suggestions?

    (Im kinda disappointed at the docking station...the makers should have known people would have cases for such an expensive phone...)

    I'm having the same exact problem...posting here so I will see the replies! I've been taking mine off when I need to charge in the car. Pain in the butt, but it's my only option for now.

    I ended up using the standard suction cup mount from Verizon (has a long arm leading to the phone clip). I can rotate it to use phone either way and my cord reaches the phone in the mount as it's near the edge of the dash. I have the phone clipped in tight enough to hold it well but i can remove the phone without having to open the arms. The phone has never fallen out. The dock for the X is going back as it's useless as I need to have a case on the phone.

    Kill mount, kill mount!

    I have an Amzer leather limited edition snap-on so both the home and car OEM mounts are out.

    You will do much better with a MOBI car mount. The bottom holders slide so you can easily charge. I never used the A/C vent hooks, instead filled the hole with silicone and slapped a Velcro on it, then velcro over dash, so i can remove it. Once i adjusted the sliders i filled the remaining space with epoxy, then sanded and painted flat black for a professional look. BT digital link through Conects2 BTAV01>PA-20GM with Y-piggyback harness >OnStar module >GM 2008 LAN navi radio never sounded better. No wire splicing, iPod shows ID3 tags on navi radio, and now the BTAV01 inputs in the PA-20GM aux stereo. Now i need to muster some nerve for a dash-pull and hidden 12v adapter with plug coming out near the MOBI for ease of use.

    Mobi Universal GPS Vent Mount

    You can get it $3-10.

    You do know that there is an insert in the windshield mount that can be removed to make more room for a case. Personally, I have the holster so I don't use a case.
