    Pro clip USA. Hands down the best mounting/charging solution I've found. You can upgrade mount for new phones and keep the same base. I'm still using the base I bought for my blackberry pearl. I had it wired in at best buy. Runs about $140 when said and done, but it looks great and is rock solid. Full disclosure I do NOT work for them. Lol.

    +1 for Proclip. I've used them for years and everything they sell is top notch. GREAT company to deal with.

    Got my procllip two day ago... about Three weeks after i ordered. It is solid and its the only Dock i found that mount securely to anything but the windshield. It seems fine so far, not as rock solid and i expected but Very stable.

    Did you get the one with the built in charger? How is it not as solid as you expected?

    The pro clip looks good but it has the one thing I was trying to avoid with the dock especially in the car and that is avoiding stress on the micro usb connector. It was why I was looking forward to these docks when sammy "tricked us all" not having to deal with cables and stressing out the connector by constatly plugging in and out as I take it with me on my "Journeys of life".:icon_cool:

    Generally no it doesn't.

    It's just over the years I have generally treated my phones well , a drop here and there but nothing too bad. But one thing that has happened on almost every phone that I have owned that does not use a form of external contacts for charging, eventually the charging ports have gone bad from the stress or vibration while driving with the plug in the socket.

    My droid was the exception to that rule but it had a very sturdy connector on it and when you plugged it in there was almost zero play between the socket and connector.

    I don't know if everybody elses feels the same as mine but the micro usb on the nexus just does not feel as sturdy as it did on the droid. Thus my fear it will eventually go bad...even more so if you have it in a holder standing on end and getting bounced and vibrated constantly on the road.
