    Nice find. I'm almost tempted to return my Moto car dock and pick up one of these.

    It's only 3 bucks plus 5 for shipping and handling. Keep the moto and pick up one of these anyway. They're made for GPS's but I'd bet they will work for just about anything.

    I'm getting 2 of them. That way if my wife loves mine and steals it, I'll have a backup.

    I honestly never read that side bit, but I check that website daily. I think I'll start reading it more often. Thanks.

    Got one coming also. Looks like the power cord will fit into my Droid while in the cup holder.

    Good looks. I grabbed one too. I just hope it holds onto the DX nice and tight.

    To anyone that got this: how did you set your Droid X into it? I cannot figure it out.

    This was advertised on the site I linked as being capable of holding any GPS or phone. That is not the case. It is only designed for some GPS units.

    I am now the owner of 2 useless mounts. I am thinking of 3Ming one of the adapter plates to a spare silicone case. It's the one with 2 sliding pieces on the sides...just need to remove the 2 slides to have a flat adapter.

    I apologize for linking this folks.

    understand it's a misrepresented product, not that I'm missing parts to make it work with a droid...

    That is correct. It was described as being capable of holding GPS units and cell phones. If you go to Mobi's web site, you can see that their current products have a universal clamp style holder. The units in the link I posted have 5 different brackets for the various GPS manufacturers...not cell phones. Without some modification on the user's part, these are not going to be useful for any cell phone.

    As I stated, I will probably attach the flattest bracket with 2-sided tape to a spare silicone cover. I stuck the mount in my cupholder and held my Droid where it would be attached, and I really like it. It's just going to cost me 12 bucks more than I though it would. But really, for a total of 20 bucks (mount $3, shipping $5, silicone cover $12), it still might be a decent deal depending on what you do with it.

    Good luck to those of you who payed for these.

    Hi-five joker23! I bought two as well.

    Thanks for detailing the situation. Certainly disappointing, but not your fault for the link. The picture made this look like it would be perfect. I still appreciate that you took the time to share your find. Perhaps I'll do something similar to what you mentioned.

    I just whipped off an email to 1saleaday:

    "ORDER NUMBER:XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    The item, Mobi GPS Gear Universal Cupholder Mount for GPS (70078) was misrepresented on your website. The photograph showed a clamp mount and described the product as being capable of holding GPS units and cell phones. The item did not arrive with the parts shown in the picture and is useless to me because of that.

    What can you do to resolve this situation?

    Tim"

    I'll update as I know more.

    I also sent an email to Mobi:

    "I recently received two of item 70078 from a sale on 1saleaday.com. Order number: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

    The item arrived as it should have, with all parts included. However, the website was using photos and text from 70073, which shows and describes the universal clamp. Because of those pictures and the description on the site, I purchased two of these. One for my Motorola Droid and one for my roommates cell phone. Unfortunately, they are useless to us without the clamp.

    I am writing first and foremost to alert your company that this happened. I have already sent an email to 1saleaday's customer service department and asked what they can do to resolve the situation. Is there anything that Mobi can do? Can I purchase the clamp directly from Mobi?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Tim"

    I Googled "mobi70078" and the first link took me to 70073 on Mobi's site (which I cannot find by navigating.), which shows the photos we were seeing on 1saleaday.

    Mobi 70078 Universal Cupholder Mount for GPS with reversible QuikGrip…easy to install and easy to use

    Edit: Interesting that the link shows that it's for 70078. Here's what I copied/pasted, except www changed to mmm so it will display the location instead of the description:

    http://mmm.getmobi.com/Cupholder_Mount.php

    @Juggernaut: At least that site you linked shows the pic with the clamp and shows 1saleaday. I took a screenshot of that and will send it to either company, depending on the replies I get. Better than nothing!
