    Found a great deal on ebay. I've seen these for up to $30 before shipping.

    Works well for my situation with a cup holder in my center console. It fits tight in the cup holder and nicely padded where the Droid sits. Easy access to the top plug for headphones and side plug for charging.

    That's a good price but this is a discontinued item from Bracketron. Their new version is the UCH101BL and has a better cup holder base. The old one is not bad, just not quite as nice as the newer version. Here's a pic of the new one. I have modified these with a magnet so they go into Car Dock mode automatically. If anyone is interested in the new version, my company has some for $18.99 and I'll add the magnet for free if you don't mind having the package opened before you get it.

    @skidemn, does your company have any bracketron vent mounts with the "adjustable" rotating vent mount and generic holder? It looks like you have to buy the mount with the ball separate from the holder with the kit that only rotates.

    Hi Jerry,

    Vent mounts didn't turn out to be too popular for us so we stopped ordering them. I have a couple left of two versions, but neither rotate and they have different holders. We have a couple left of the PH-MINI 4 that looks like this:

    And a we also have a couple of these STM-100BL that can vent mount or adhesive mount to the dash and then the other half stick to the back of the phone:

    The universal holder can mount to either one but you have to use only the vent mount from either kit and get the universal holder separately. Universal holder picture:

    If you or anyone else wants one of the above kits, let me know as I would love to get rid of them cheaply.

    Bracketron does have a universal holder packed with a vent mount called a PHV-200PB. We don't stock it now because vent mounts have not been popular, but I'd get some if forum members want them. Here's the picture:

    [​IMG]

    But if you want a vent mount that rotates and adjusts, you are best off buying the universal holder separately and then buying this vent mount COM-116-PBif you can find it. Again, we don't stock it now, but if there is enough interest I would stock them and offer a deal to forum members.

    These holders do work very well but they are too bulky for my taste when using them with a Droid or other phone in general. Obviously that's just a personal opinion, but I do prefer this holder with the different mounts available for it because it is less bulky and easier to add the magnet inside. Also, there are cigarette lighter mounts, window mounts, non-rotating vent mounts, motorcylce/bicycle mounts, and vehicle specific mounts (as seen in this picture) available for it:
