    Hi all,

    I have Bought a suction cup mount for my Incredible and I see the two head mounts I have had experience with!

    CM920 Gooseneck Mount & Universal Holder for Verizon HTC Droid Incredible
    If you are looking for a simple solution to secure the Verizon HTC Droid Incredible in your car, this vehicle mount is the perfect match. $19.95
    Is a good mount ONLY if you do not plug your Incredible into the cars cig lighter as the left jaw is too low and interfers with the power plug on our phone

    Arkon CM910 Vehicle Mount Kit & Universal Holder for Verizon HTC Droid Incredible This flexible vehicle mount kit offers three mounting solutions so you can easily secure your Droid in your car.
    $29.95
    This head is better for the Incredible as it will not interfere with the power plug! As a side note i did trim the left jaws foam as I found that sometimes it interferes with the lower volume button!

    JasonB has excellent pictures, with the Incredible sitting in the CM910 mount head on a different floor mount(thanks JasonB) hit this link >> : http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...-vehicle-mounts-fit-incredible-pics-mine.html

    OEM Holster Mount Combo

    I just purchased the HTC Holster Mount Combo from Verizon yesterday for $29.99. It has the Verizon logo printed on the box. The UPC number is VZW6300MNT. The box reads, "For these and other accessories, call 1-866-VZ GOT IT (1-866-894-6848)."

    It seems to be of very good quality, and fits well in my later model 3-series BMW. It comes with a holster and belt clip, but I would never wear it, since it has the phone glass facing outward.

    It positions the phone so the power cable inserts from the bottom right (passenger side).

    I agree it appears to be a good and sturdy mount however the Akron is less expensive and I can have a cover on my Incredible with out an issue! I prefer my Incredible not be nakey out in public :)

    Make sure you have some type of cooling available for your phone. I ran my this last weekend with a modified droid mount (I had already bought it, just needed to modify the plastic to allow the Incredible to fit). If the phone was on my dash in direct sun light it got very hot and shut down. I had to move it to my center console. I had navigation and Pandora running for 4+ hours before the shut down. The incredible mount looks like it would allow me to adjust it down in front of one of my AC vents which should help considerably, the droid mount was not large enough to do that.

    So, does it turn to landscape and portrait view? Also, does the phone recognize Navigation mode and automatically switch to it? I always prefer to use the original manufaturer if possible, but it is twic as expensive as the Akron.
    Also, I'm wondering about car charging the phone while in the dock. Does the cord reach all the way up to a glass mounted setup?
    Thanks

    Anybody know when this mount is going to be available? This will probably be the best mount for the incredible, just like the moto droid had one specifically for it.

    This mount cannot be used with any case or anything like that. So when you say best that's subjective at best.

    How come people worry bout the volume buttons, when you use the car radio buttons to control the volume, or am I missing something?

    Verizon mount not so great

    I purchased the Verizon mount for my wife's Incredible and we didn't like it. The suction mount wouldn't stick to the window of her Honda Fit. She didn't like having to take the phone out of it's protective case to use the car mount. She had absolutely no use for the belt clip-type holder, as she carries her Incredible in her purse.

    So, if you are looking to keep your Incredible in a protective skin, the Verizon mount is not for you. I have been underwhelmed by the quality of the OEM accessories available for the HTC Incredible. My MotoDroid accessories are better designed and of better quality.

    my opinion

    I got the Verizon mount and went on a trip this past weekend. I think it works moderately well, maybe a 7 out of 10 stars. The suction cup worked very well, but the arm extension is fixed and the way the mount locks into the arm is awkward and seems less than steady. I've got a protective case that is extremely easy to take on and off the phone, so I don't mind that the mounting case won't accept protective phone cases. But this is asinine on the part of the product developers, IMO. Also, when turning the phone from landscape to portrait, the weight of the car charger pulls the phone down a little...I just don't like that; puts stress on the pin dock. It's better to leave the orientation to landscape for the good of the phone. I do think the beefiness of the entire unit is good, it won't fall down when hitting a bump in the road. It's also competitively priced with other units I've looked at. $29 at the VZW store.

    I used my Bracketron before I got the Verizon one. Works fine. You need to work a little on positioning the left bracket so that you can plug the phone in but not have it hit the volume keys, but it works well.

    !

    whats being referenced here is the up volume and down volume buttons on the left side of phone can be interfered with by some mounts holding arms! Some holding arms also make it hard or impossible to plug your Incredible in to car power

    Those side arms slide up and down to accomodate a wide variety of button locations on different phones. Anywho, I went with an Arkon mount on Amazon. Comes with the suction cup mount and a air vent mount. $19.95 with free shipping.

    I have this arkon mount:

    The holder works great for the Incredible, doesn't hit any buttons block the charging port. They have a smaller windshield style too:

    I think it looks less chunky and cooler than some of the other windshield mounts in this thread.
