I just wanted to throw it out there if you are looking for a good mount that is pretty universal with most cases and you can easily grab and go check out http://www.scosche.com/magicmount I haven't seen it around much. I came across it and thought it looked cool and perfect for me. I have the plate between my phone and Otterbox commuter and it works great. I previously was using the Ibolt device, but my only problem was it took two hands to get it in and out.

Just placed my order! I've had some bad experience with the imagnet which is the same concept but it never worked too well with bigger phones especially over speed bumps. Hopefully this one works better. Use the coupon code : "TECHHEAD" to get 20% off which almost covers the shipping cost!

Well I haven't hit any speed bumps yet but so far so good I used the bigger plate it comes with for my phone. The package comes with two sizes.

I don't have the commuter anymore but from what I can remember the backside is pretty slippery so I'm glad it's working for you. I want to set this up with my neo hybrid case with the magnet between phone and case. We'll see how that goes... XD

Yeah its pretty slippery I went down some bumpy roads earlier and it slid off...I then put the plate between the rubber and plastic on my commuter and seems to be better now.

it seems to be a really good mount, can't believe it cost double the price only for a tiny plastic holder. Anybody buy it for me and i'll pay with paypal the real shipping cost

Any issues with the adhesive losing grip over time in the sun? I'm in southern california, and my dash gets baked quite often. Damn, just realized that the location I want to mount this would make my windshield shade difficult to place.... hmmm...
