Is there a car dock for the droid that can be used either in the cup holder or with vent attachment?
I purchased the one shown below from Target. They give you 90 days to return it if you're unhappy.
Really like it, though. It attaches with clips to your air vents, very easy to install and remove. Also has a ball pivot, so you can turn it towards you.
What's nice is, the side arms (which are padded) can be raised or lowered individually, so you can adjust them to avoid the volume buttons/charging port, etc.
I also like that it will still fit the Droid after I get a Seidiio Inno Case, which will make the Droid just a tad thicker.
Back and side arms are nicely padded, it's held in place by simply squeezing the two arms together, so they grab the Droid. NO problem with it coming out whatsoever (and I read a LOT of reviews, nobody else reported their device coming loose)
It's made by Bracketron.
Amazon also has them for sale.
I had a Garmin dash mount that sits on a sand bag type weight. The socket fits perfectly into the back of the Droid phone plate. I tried it out because I kept worrying the phone would fall off the window which my GPS has done several times and even cracked the plastic screen.
Ditto, it works great for me. Thank Garmin for a poor suction cup design which led me to it.
My company has some vent mount attachments left that work with the holder I showed in another thread. The holder has the magnet that allows automatic car mode when placed in the holder. Anyone interested can message me for more info.
The only thing I don't like about this vent mount (and others I've tested) is that they do not easily remove from the vent blades, and obviously it blocks the vent which bothers me as since I love my air conditioning!

Can't use a case...
Most of these mounts do not allow you to use a case with your Droid.
Best Buy brand is $10.00
RocketFish (Best Buy's brand) sandbag is only $10.00.
If you want to leave your case on the Droid, such as rubber, silicone, Body Glove, etc., then you need a 'universal' holder.
If you use a "universal" holder, then you need to place a small magnet in the correct location to trigger the car mount process.
What type of car do you have? Kuda makes matching car kits for many vehicles including vent and cup holder designs too. I have the one which attaches and matches your interior and it works great.

Do these have magnets for car mode?
The thing I don't like is that it doesn't seem to have a swivel for a horizontal position.
