Default Best Vent mount I've found!! (and only $20)

[QUOTE=bsoplinger;37966358]Seems like a good mount but won't work in my car. As you can see from the image in the link below the line of the 3 vents in the center of the console is continued onto the top of the dashboard making 3 humps in an otherwise flat surface. I've replaced the factory steroid so a CD mount won't work. And to top it all off there isn't even close to a tablet sized flat area for a magnet based mount. Suggestions?]

I'm using the Bracketron Universal PHV-202-BL GPS Grip-iT Rotating Vent Mount - Black.

The Nexus 7 will not fit in landscape, only portrait (barely with the foam padding)

What's great about this bracket is that it can be used for other devices and is the first vent mount that I've been able to clipped onto and off the vents easily.

The side and bottom arms are adjustable also.

The picture on the left is from the web & the one on the right is my unit.
(I don't use the square base in web pic)
I think I got this at Radio Shack but a web search should find other online & brick and mortar locations.

Thanks for the suggestion. But the name is a little misleading. The mount itself rotates but it's not for rotating vents. All vent mounts I've tried or even looked at have the same limitation. They are meant to be used on the semi fixed vents most cars have with horizontal slats that tilt up and down and not for the rotating style like my car has. But it still might be a good solution for other people.

I have the Xenomix one (as posted by OP), used it only for a week.

I no longer need it if someone wants it, I'll sell it for $30 + shipping. Cheaper than the eBay seller and you don't have to wait weeks for it to arrive from Korea.

Mine I did today. The radio display is behind it. Don't really need to see it once the tablet is playing music. Just needed the aux/Bluetooth/iPod buttons and volume button showing on the left

Suction cups with a silicone case. Poked holes in the case for the suction cups, it doesn't move at all.

Here is a picture to keep you subscribed to this thread, I need more time to write the review.

Hey, couldn't you just please say model name of this car mount ?? Why just posting a picture, there's no useful information without car mount model name.

Maybe it's an idea to read post 4 of this thread?

Here's what I've got going: Arkon Slim-Grip® Ultra™ Sticky Suction Dashboard & Windshield Mount [SM678]

It's a sticky suction mount. It works on all dash surfaces I've tried (my chick has a Scion with a matte textured dash, sticks fine). It'll also works with pretty much any case I can think of.
