Default Samsung Car mount question

Does anyone know if the below car mount fits a Samsung note encased in a TPU or nilkin/rock hard case?

I did a measurement of my note in its protective case and found the width is about 85-86mm...so it might be a tight fit, given the maximum width of the arm is 85mm.

Anyone who has bought this mount and has a TPU / Rock / Nilkin case can share his experience would be helpful. Thanks.

I have the car mount (its FANTASTIC BTW). the fit is very tight and I do not think you can leave any case on the device. Aside from a snug fit, you need to snap the power clip in, and it only fits if the device is already snuggly fitted into the mount.

I got this one and it works great, it swivels 360degrees, great price too. And my ac keeps the phone cool :P

Sorry bro, I didn't realize you had a slim case on your phone. I don't use one
Good luck!

I think I am going to pick it up. It will fit the permanent mount arm I have in my Subaru.

That's the same one I and mkoger have, it is a very good fit for the stock cover but not anything else

I have that one too. Its OK.. You can see my comments on it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1386908

As I mentioned, I have this case: http://www.amazon.com/elago-Slim-Cas...=5336653508-20 (elago G4 Slim Fit Case for Galaxy Note -Soft Feeling Black)

And I can snap it into the dock fine. A little snug, but not bad. Recommend using both hands to remove.
