Can someone recommend a good car mount for the Streak 7 with an Otterbox commuter case on it? I would love to mount the things behind the steering wheel in my Saturn Ion.

Don't know if this will fit with the Otterbox case, but this one's the generic for the S7 (don't think there's a purpose built one):

I was looking at this. Has anyone used it before with the Dell Streak 7? I'm just worried the tablet will be in my way too much because the arm on that mount looks short.

I've been fond of the SlipGrip car mounts. I currently use one for my Streak 5 with an Otterbox Defender case, and I plan to buy one for my newly acquired Streak 7.

Here's a link to their car mount for the Streak 7 w/Otterbox Commuter case:

Scosche dashDock for tablets looks pretty nice. I just ordered one. I'll report back when I get it. $29.00 + $6.50 for delivery direct from Scosche web site.

I've been looking for a mount that will hold the 7 between the headrests of the front seats... anybody used anything like that so far?

This looks like a great car dock. I would really like to see some pics if you did purchase it.

Did you ever get this? If you did please report back on it. Thank!


I just got a bluetooth OBDII adapter to use with Torque so now I'm really itching to get a car mount.
I also found this, which looks interesting considering it's only $20 shipped:

Navitech Firm Grip 360 degree Adjustable Mount Cradle

Has anyone picked one of these up?

CAREFUL, that SlipGrip car docks are only the docks, no case is included.

I alrady have a case. I'm just looking for a dock that will work with the case. I'm not rushing into getting one. I would rather get some feedback from someone who has one first.

I just got the SlipGrip dock for using with Commuter. It's great quality to be honest. Holds the Streak very tight and offers flexible adjustments.

The suction cup holds very well and tight. It might take you a bit to get the perfect position in the car.

I will snap some photos later today.
