So I was thinking of buying the One X car dock from AT&T but then I came across this great alternative!

It's a USB cable which activates the car mode in HTC phones!

That sounds like a good idea with that usb cable. I'll probably pick one up to go with the One X mount I got here: http://www.obostore.com/small-car-ve...-x-p-5997.html

Did you receive the mount yet? Does it fit the AT&T One X? it doesn't say on the site if it's for ours or the international one.

That link goes to a Samsung Galaxy Note car mount. Is this the same one in the video?

Not yet, but I'm hoping it'll fit. From everything I've read, the AT&T HOX is only .4mm taller (longer) than the intl version, and these plasticky things rarely are built to such tight tolerances. I also got 2 of the Rock covers, both of which are made for the intl hox, but I'm hoping it'll fit the AT&T one. If not, I can always heat them up and make 'em fit

I would like a similar mount that would also fit an iPhone 4. It would be nice to have a dock that myself and my wife could both use.

Just received the universal mount today. It fits my ATT hox just fine as long as it's naked (case-less).

Does it seem like it will also fit with a snug TPU case on the phone?

Nope. There's no excess room in this car mount for any sort of case.

I ended up ordering the KiDiGi car dock because it's designed to work with or without a case.

Thanks for the response. That KiDiGi dock does look nice. When you get it, please post impressions on how well it fits with a case.
