Let's see how it will take several mounting and dismounting of my HOX, but so far so good. It's a bit tight to get the phone in, nothing as smooth as my mount I had for my HD2 (case exactly made for the phone), but at least now I can keep the thing and having it on the dashboard is also better imho. Also you can very easily rotate the phone with this mount, all while still holding relatively tight (it does vibrate a bit from time to time but that was the same with my old windshield mount). I turn it to the left to charge it (horizontal) and upside down to plug my jack cable to listen to music
All in all I am quite happy with this mount, especially if I take the price into consideration!
Hey mate that's what I'm using now too.
It came with a sticky dash mount and I now have it sitting on the door trim/top thing as I wanted.
For the price this really is the "Best unofficial dock".
Versus the official dock I would say...
Non-Official Ebay Cradle
- Swivel / Rotate (landscape/portrait)
- Case or no case friendly
- Accepts the phone in any manner (frontwards or reverse)
- Small design
- Will work with other phones (maybe even the bigass Note).
- Feels a little flimsy
- Does vibrate
- No built in charger
- No "car mode" automatic activation
Official HTC Cradle
- Built in charger + cable
- Simple to dock your phone (drop/slide in)
- Well built (looks it - i don't have one)
- Automatically activates "car mode"
- Landscape only
- Not case friendly
- Phone may pop out (so I've read)
- Pretty bulky looking
- Worth more then what it should be
Anyway price is obviously the issue for many, others may argue "You buy an expensive phone, don't get cheap on accessories".
If HTC made one that would work with a case and one that could swivel 360 then I would have spent my money on it.
Landscape only and popping off the case every time to dock is annoying.

I can manage to get the phone in, but the fit is so tight I'm scared the screen will crack when I hit the first bump in the road...
Yeah it has G21.
Thanks for the info. I was going to rubish it as I won't be using it.
I will get my money back now from them scabs selling non correct items.
I put the phone in it twice and realized it was way too tight.
It fits so tight that it leaves rub marks on the places where the brackets make contact.
They cleaned off but many uses would probably damage the phone long term yeah.
