I just ordered myself one of these the other day. It was half the price of the ram mount and review of the ram mount were stating how the arm was a little to short. Anybody has any updated opinions or tips on using the MENB-ME-04-Windshield?

I already know that I would never leave this thing on the windshield with my xoom if i get out of the car.

I've been using this for a ciuple of weeks now. It is a vent-mounted holder and, as my vents are a little bit to the loose side, I was a little afraid the whole thing wouldn't provide a solid mount for the rather heavy xoom... However, it sits in the car, not as stiff as a rock, but close enough:) Also, all it blocks are my vents, nothing else:)

If you guys want, I can post some pictures:)

I also bought this mount and I love it. Work extremely well. I've tried a few other ones and this one is by far the best.

I've been using a Ram Mount (product #RAM-HOL-MOTO3U) in my car since last Christmas and absolutely love it. It's mounted to a AMPs mounting plate that extends a couple of inches out from the console. I had the plate installed years ago for satellite radio use (no longer needed!). To accomplish the mounting I also utilized one of Ram Mount's arm-style ball mounts (product #RAM-B-101U).

This solution isn't the cheapest, but I think it's the best. It can be positioned in just about any fashion with the double socketed arm, stays off the windshield/out of your line of sight, and is immediately accessible right above the gear shift.

I can post some pics later if anyone is interested.
