    after many searches and cant find a good car mount to fit my droid + body glove case i decided to make my own. Cost like 6 bucks and 30 mins. I took a magnet and metal strip from a name tag (the kind they use at McD or other customer service job). I bought some industrial strength velcro from Walmart. I first cut the body glove rubber skin in the shape of the metal strip. this will make it as flush as possible. then i use rubber cememt to glue it down and let it cured. I cut 2 pieces of velcro in the same shape of the magnet and metal strip. I put the fussy velcro part on my dashboard and the other on the metal strip. I let both sit for a while before using it. I have been using it for 4 days now and have not have an issue with it falling off or peeling. I just want to share so take it how you like it. Here are some pictures.

    Is it held by magnets? Could a pothole drop it? :icon_eek:

    If you hit a pothole that big, you better worry about buying a tire
