I got my hands on one of those last week, and after looking at it, you'd be hard-pressed to try and keep that SGT docked in that thing in a vehicle. I think you could make a car mount out of it, though, and it would be successful.
Another thing I can relate using the OEM car dock....the mount has a spring in it that bounces a bit too much. As I revert to making a more permanent mount, the spring will be eliminated from the equation.
One of my main concerns in figuring how to mount it was to make sure that I could successfully utilize the camera. I want to be able to capture video of all the nimrods in traffic with me that don't know how to drive, so the mount location works perfectly. At some point, I'd like to get around to fabbing up an enclosure that will allow me to slide the tab in and out of like this setup:
but I want it to be a reversible setup so that I by simply replacing the OEM center console/bezel with another, I can revert back to stock w/minimal work.
I see a lot of people mounting iPads in their vehicles, but IMHO, it's a bit LARGE for the front of the car. I think the SGT is the perfect size for what we're trying to accomplish.
