    Ok...I use Otterbox cases on my phones and they do not fit in car mounts. I decided to take the holster (after I accidentally broke the belt clip) and mount it to a iottie car mount base, a little epoxy and dremel tool and..........this one is for my note 2.

    So do the slip grips. I have one for my nexus with the otterbox commuter case. It is a perfect fit.

    I like magnetic mounts like mountek and Infiniapps that you insert into cd slots.

    Don't you worry about breaking your car stereo head unit if it gets stuck in there? Like for example when you go over the bump and all the pressure on that cd slot connection? That's probably the only thing that stops me from using one of these.

    To OP, clever idea! Does the epoxy holds over time, over bumps, and as temperature in the car changes? I'm actually using my Note 2 with zerolemon extended battery and their case for it, and it's exactly the same dimensions as Otterbox. So this setup might work for me as well. Just that I'm not a fan of otterbox holster lol!!! My other options is to go with Arkon Slim grip ultra mount. That one is spring loaded and will fit anything, even note 2 in otterbox. Not sure if there is any other options to buy under $20, unless you guys can recommend it?

    Nah, it only goes in about 3/4 inch deep. And who uses cds these days anyways? If they broke em, they wouldn't be so popular.
