So, I dusted off my Infuse 4G Car Dock and voila! The S3 fits! Height is perfect but the S3 is a tad narrower than the Infuse so some very minor side to side alignment prior to sliding the connector in is required. Other than that it fits like it was made for it! Enjoy!

Update:
Audio output works as well!

Dude, you are my hero right now. I've been spoiled by my Epic 4G dock for the past 2 years and I really didn't want to spend close to $90 for the brodit stuff.

Thank you


EDIT: Does the phone pop back out too easily? Gravity probably helps yours stay in but I keep my dock on my windshield and just wanted to know to avoid having it fall out forward. Thanks again

Yea snaps in firmly and pops out easy. No worry about it falling out.

Great find ookba and thanks. Is that the exact dock u linked to with the charging slider too,?

Also, does this come with the wiring harness?

I'm guessing that being slightly narrower might mean the phone might dock with a thin case on? Ie case mate barely there, incipio feather case etc.

Just to be 100% clear, we're talking about THIS car mount, right?

http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-INFUSE...fuse+car+mount

I was JUST about to order it until I realized.... I already have the OEM Samsung one for the D710, here are the dimensions to compare:

i997 - 132 x 71 x 9 mm
D710 - 130 x 70 x 10 mm

The D710 car dock doesn't output audio for my SGSII Skyrocket, but that's okay because I have Bluetooth audio streaming in the car now if it doesn't.... going to keep the mount ready to install when I finally get my SGSIII in hand to test it and will report back with the findings! Wouldn't that be awesome if I didn't have to buy another car dock.....

EDIT - I also just realized you said the SIII is a tad narrower than the Infuse, so this being 2mm narrower might be a better fit!

MAJOR EDIT - I just received the SIII today, and while driving home with it, I tried it out on the D710 dock - it works just the same as the Infuse dock, so if you can't find the one for the Infuse, buy the Sprint Epic Touch 4G (Galaxy SII, D710) dock here:

Yea the SGH-i997 is the one I tested this with. Works like a charm. Outputs audio, etc. Does not come with any harnesses. The one you see is something I wired up. The dock has audio output and microUSB charge input.

I can also confirm that this works. Snapped right in, S3 went into dock mode and everything works great. Also as someone else mentioned in the other thread I used velcro and attached it to my Proclip vehicle mount.
