....will work and do you have a better option. I like this one because its water proof but don't know if the buttons will align especially the power button and if I will be able to use the touch screen. It does say i9100 though so...

I want to know this too. If you could put it on front handlebars it would make for sweet mountain biking videos

You could mount it on a motorcycle, however, it doesn't fit the epic I forgot that the SGII is 4.3 inch and our phones our a bit bigger. I really like to product so I will be modifying it to fit, wont be the best but its better then all the other ones that leave the phone out in the open.

Bought this a few months for both my son & I. It has a bungee to keep it from flying off over railroad tracks. Highly recommended.

Hey Polska

Don't know if you noticed but they do have a Galaxy S version of that.

http://www.ibikeconsole.com/catalog.asp?catid=67650

Was just looking for the same thing and was surprised to find a thread here about it. Well not the bike console, but a stem mount solution that would fit my phone.

That thing looks like the ticket. I like the built in waterproof case as I carry mine naked.

Thanks I did notice but the s has a 4" screen which is even smaller, the volume and power might align better though. I cut out holes for the volume and power button obviously not as water proof anymore but really I just want it to protect the screen/speaker/front front from any moisture which it still does. I also had to modify the rubber lining because the screen didn't aligh with the screen on the case and I was unable to press the home/back etc buttons.

BTW I found my on ebay for $30 so if anybody is looking for one start there. It does not show the brand on ebay but its the same stuff.

Placeholder for now. I'm out and will search when I get home. This'll just show up in my subs so I don't forget. There's a member Miami_Son, he does serious off road riding and found an adjustable mount he used for the captivate.

my phone was here
