    Wondering if the phone with the shell on it can be placed in the holster with the screen facing out.

    It can, but it will only go about 80% into the holster and wouldn't be completely secure.

    BTW, IMHO it is by far the best case/holster there is..so far.

    My thought was using it this way clipped to something in my car. I've "McGyvered" my GPS mount to my air vents and thought if it was secure enough backwards I could use my skillz to create a way to mount my droid in a similar fashion not having to worry about taking cases off and such or paying for the dash mount which I can't use in CA anyways since its only a suction cup mount.

    Thanks for the response.
    I ordered the Verizon silicone case, but am starting to re-think.

    I just switched to the Shell/Holster Case as of yesterday and LOVE it. I had been using the Body Glove case since the day the Droid was released, but the thought of a case that wasn't nearly impossible to take off is what made me switch. I honestly can't believe how much smaller the phone feels with the new case.

    You can now use a suction cup mount on your windshield for your GPS or whatever in California. The law has evolved.

    You are welcome.

    Yes you can use it the way you are talking about, I was thinking the same thing before I got the car Dock and modded it to fit with the shell case still on.

    SurfScotty, only if it is in the lower corners...

    V.C. Section 26708 - Material Obstructing or Reducing Driver’s View

    (12) A portable Global Positioning System (GPS), which may be mounted in a 7-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield farthest removed from the driver or in a 5-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield nearest to the driver, if the system is used only for door-to-door navigation while the motor vehicle is being operated and outside of an airbag deployment zone.

    The Verizon store near my office is expecting these in tomorrow. I'm going to pick it up. It's been getting great reviews, and I'm looking for a case that can take a beating (I visit construction sites often).

    I'll use the VZ one for work and a nice leather one for going out:)

    928, what did you do to 'mod' the car mount to make it fit. I have not seen one, but just curious.

    Ordered mine yesterday, hoping it comes tomorrow! I can't believe how many good reviews this product has gotten. Generally I would never consider something that was at the Verizon store. There are a lot of good 3rd party manufactures for accessories and stuff. But this one seems to be an exception.

    On my lunch break today I went and picked up the shell/holster combo. Fitted it to my phone was MUCH easier than the body glove cover, and it comes off with a normal amount of force. Nice tight fit in the holster, too.

    $27.00 with tax, and I think $27.00 well spent

    Now, when will Sena release their leather Droid-specific cases ;)
