Now I put the phone to the test. When you dock it automatically opens to Samsung Voice Talk. From there you can voice command different things.

The Navigation voice command was hit and miss. When I first tried it understood exactly where I wanted to go. Later, I tried again and it took 4 times to figure it out.

Otherwise the Navigation worked almost flawless.

I had Google Music playing, which again, using Voice Talk to get to your songs was hit and miss. Maybe it's just me taking time to getting used to prompts.

Cause using it to type a text message wasn't bad. Just sometimes you cant give a long message to it. Sometimes you had to give 3 to 4 word bursts and then keep adding to it.

And I taxed the Note to. I had the screen constanstly on, GPS on, Navi running, playing Google Music at level 13, and using the Voice Talk.

With the charger plugged it, it was actually losing charge. Very very slowly though. But it couldn't hang.

If I turned off GPS and the navi only, the charge came back.

Not bad, not bad at all. Maybe with practice, it'll become more seemless to me.

Just a quick question re: charging with your OEM car mount. Are you using a USB car charger or coiled cord charger with the cradle?

The reason I ask is that when ordering the OEM mount, it says it does not come with the charger, just cradle. Unlike the OEM car mount for my Galaxy Tab. It came with a USB car charger that plugs into the cradle and I have noticed that I can run all functions including CoPilot Live (screen on all the time), stream music, etc and my Tab still charges while plugged in. I looked at the USB/lighter plug and it shows an output of 1A.

I have another USB/lighter plug that I have tried with my Note but it is only 0.5A and it will not charge while running everything but does maintain the existing charge.

Both can be reused with other phones instead of 1 phone like the official mount.

And you can use both of them with/without case and they are also protective film-friendly so you won't worry the mount would destroy the film.

Links?

The Proclip platform is specific to each car model and the holder(s) are specific to each smartphone. I am using active holders with charging and I am very satisfied with it every time.
No excluding with my newest Samsung Galaxy Note too

Totally agree mate, used ProClip for ages, just got one for my HTC Sensation

Completed a review here for Gadgetix: http://gadgetix.com/2012/03/30/revie...ghter-adapter/

Here is the ProClip Link for the Samsung Note: http://www.proclipusa.com/default.as...51&d_cat=18842

Very stable devices and away from direct sunlight angle is great for the driver.

Cheers

I was so close to buying this mount. It looked really slick, but am glad for all your comments in saving me at least double what a mount cost!

I think Samsung's car mount is a winner. It is very solid mount and when connected to Samsung's car mount audio output I noticed sound was much clear and louder. If I connect to headphones port sound was little muffled and lower.
