    I recently got a new phone and plan to get the Thunderbolt on launch... now I just need to find a decent way to mount it so I can use it as a practical GPS and Bluetooth streaming device...

    Something like this Droid X mount is perfect:

    Amazon.com: Motorola Car Mount and Rapid Car Charger for Motorola DROID X [Retail Packaging]: Cell Phones & Accessories

    But it doesn't seem like any decent mounts or cradles are made exclusively for anything HTC...

    Any suggestions? How do you use your droid in the car?

    OK, those are very cool - they're unobtrusive, easy to install and can be customized for specific phones and cars. I'm impressed and thank you very much for the recommendation.

    This would be perfect on my car, and I like this location because it would prevent the need for having wires all over the dash. You can also mount it on the pillar to the left of the windshield, but it seems like it would be difficult to keep charged from there.

    The Thunderbolt seems to have roughly the same dimensions of the Incredible - but would the clips be interchangeable?

    Your welcome. The great part is you can switch out the device holders and reuse the mount and they make lots of different device holders.

    That is mighty creative indeed, and super fugly as well. I never could understand the desire to block a vent for heat or air conditioning I mean its nice to be warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

    Yeah, I'm definitely not into blocking vents either - and my car's vents are shaped more vertical than horizontal (and sort of triangular) so it wouldn't be an ideal fit anyway.
