    How to convert moto droid car dock to vent mount

    I can't imagine this is too tough, but I looking to ditch the standard droid car dock for a vent mount option. Does the ball on the back of the dock allow it to be attached to some sort of vent mount kit?

    Sure, if you can find a vent mount with a ball on it. Or if you can adapt a vent mount to put one of these on it:

    Have you done a Google search my friend.

    Found this very easily:

    So I could take the head piece from the nav mount and replace it with my droid dock? Are the balls a standard size and connection?

    Here is another option, you can use the whole base, or unscrew the ball from it and mount it to whatever you want.

    This is what I use, only I mounted the ball to a Kuda mount for my car.

    I'm looking to do the same thing. The diameter of the ball on the Droid (and Droid 2) dock is 0.673". If you look at RAM Mount here:

    RAM Mounting Systems, Inc. > Support Center > Glossary of Terms

    their smallest it 0.56" and the next up is 1.0", so they won't work...

    I would love to find a AMPS to 0.673" ball or a AMPS to Motorola's double-T connector...

    That would be perfect! Can you measure the diameter of the ball? Thanks.

    Whats more unfortunate than dragging up the past is clickin on a link titled "Amazon" and getting:



    Looking for something?
    We're sorry. The Web address you entered is not a functioning page on our site

    Go to Amazon.com's Home Page
    If you can maybe come back to this long forgotten post and replace the word Amazon with the Items name, I would be soooo grateful.

    I am also trying to figure out the same problem, I can't understand why Motorola thinks everyone wants to block their vision with 'another' addition on their windshield.
    You could get back to this that would be great.

    Thanks
