i don't think it would work. sgs2 clips into a hard plastic clip with no additional room. even taking the case off it's worth it!

I like that the part you clip the phone into is separate from the suction cup arm. Does anybody know if you can remove the part that the dock clips on to from the arm itself? I have a custom mount in my car already, but I would like to use the cradle and mounting bracket from this if possible.

This is a somewhat old picture of my current setup. I'm going to ditch the universal cradle and the adhesive disc for the TomTom and just fabricate something for the Samsung dock.

I am pretty sure I did exactly what you are thinking of doing. I'll get a few pictures and give a brief write up for you "soon."

Got back from vacation last night and my navigation mount was waiting for me! Took a quick look at it and its going to take a bit more work than I thought to do what I want to do. In order to mount the ball mount and keep the ability to adjust and rotate I'm going to have to cut the end off the arm. The cup the ball fits into is molded into the end of the arm. I'm planning to work on it tonight. I'll take pictures and if it works out well I'll do a write up.

Shouldn't need to cut off the arm.. I can't really disassemble my setup any more but I did finally remember to get a few pictures.

I left the arm intact and didn't use it for this project. Unscrew the three (i think) screws on the holder (attached to the ball, will call the clip) and remove. Then I took a jeweler's saw to cut off the ball mount location on the clip and drilled holes to screw into an arkon permanent base. I wanted everything to tuck away in the car and am very pleased with the result.

Okay, you did yours a bit differently than I did. Just finished it this morning. Turned out to be a lot more work than I thought it would be, but that's more down to the car than anything. I'll get some pictures tonight and try to post a mini write-up on how I did it.

Question for those who use the nav mount. I have the dock audio output enabled so when the phone's in it I can listen to Pandora or whatever. If I use Google maps navigation, will the voice prompts be routed through the audio output as well? If so, is there a way to isolate the navigation audio and have it come through the phone speaker?

I don't use nav too often, but while listening to music it does must the music and play the navigation through the car speakers. I am not aware of an app or toggle to make media play though car speakers, and navigation through phone speakers
