    I bought the Motorola branded car mount. The suction cup is atrocious, it simply doesn't hold. I am looking to cobble together a Ram mount, Ram's suction cups are far superior to the piece of crap Motorola sells. Does anybody know the diameter of the ball in the Motorola mount? Is there a ready made Ram mount for the Droid?

    Did you flip the little lever down after you placed the suction cup on whatever surface it was you wanted it to mount to?

    I am attaching the suction cup to a window so there's no need for the little surface they send you and yes I'm quite sure how to operate a suction cup.

    Newps,

    There is a lever on the mount which needs to be engaged for the mount to be set correctly.

    Mine hasnt moved since December when I bought it.

    I could swing off of mine after engaging the lever.

    Exactly.

    It's solid as a rock.

    I don't think the problem is motorola branded mounts, as mine works very well also. Did you try exchanging yours for a new one? Maybe its defective.

    Sorry, I do not know the diameter of the ball that is used for the Motorola Droid mount.

    I have used the mount for my Magellan GPS and several different "universal" Braketron mounts. As long as the mount has at least 1 male T-prong, the holder from the Motorola car mount fits.

    I cannot help you with your issue but I have the motorola car mount and it has held strong from the day I put it on my window, around 6 months ago.

    I would agree - mine hasn't moved since I first installed (and my kids have tried to hang from it...).
