    Looking for a solution to mounting my wife's Eris in the car when using Google Nav. Are there any windshield mount, dash mounts available that work well with the Eris?

    I have a Moto Droid and purchased my mount at a VZW store. I imagine they have one for the Eris.

    I bought a $10 window mount for my phone at Target, works good. It uses a suction cup and you just stick it to your window, it will hold any cellphone as well.

    I just bought one at HTC Droid Eris Accessories and Cases It'll probably come in a few days and I'll post what I think of it. Also bought two covers (one for the wife's), screen protectors and car charger. Got over $50 for free shipping.

    I bought my mount at www.proclip.com The one that I purchased was a hardwire kit and was a little expensive at $115. There are cheaper options available at the website. Mine mounted on my center vent on my Saab. Couldn't be happier with the mount, very solid and I love the fact that my wires are hidden and the phone just slips into mount with no cable to manually connect to it.

    Just got it, thanks. Got the same one for $8.26. Hopefully, it holds it stable enough, without too much vibration or bounce.

    Cool, mine doesn't move around very much. The arm is pretty stiff and I had it so that it was resting on the dashboard.

    Does the Bracketron one from Radio Shack work with the universal mount?

    I currently use the bean bag Garmin with the ball hook up to the universal but with the summer sun the phone gets too hot and doesn't charge properly.

    The order finally came, or rather the car charger did. Everything else was on back order :-( I called to find out how long and the chap said a few days. I gave them a week, still nothing. So I waited over the weekend so they had at least 2 weeks from the original order and still nothing. I called again and was told a few days. I asked for a refund, which would take 5 days! I kept saying that wasn't good enough to each of his replies until I got through to a supervisor who got me a refund in 2 days.

    I won't say don't deal with Only Phone Network, but Google them first ;-)

    I ended up going to a Verizon kiosk in our local mall and getting screen protectors and covers for not a lot more money. And got the Bracketron from "The Shack" and now don't even need the car charger I originally got from Onlyphonenetwork.
