Can anyone post up some suggestions for a good car mount for the skyrocket? I'd really like one that didn't block the camera so I could record video while driving.

Thanks!

hands down the best mounts in the market is Pro-Clip USA. Expensive, but worth it.

Its ok, you just can't help it. I'm pretty capable but I thought that this community may have a preferred vendor that came recommended for this product.

ProClip is good stuff for sure, but I've never seen a mount from them that's not on the dash or console area. If you want to record while driving, you'd want something on the windshield or dash; preferably windshield if you have a newer car, since they're made and installed to dampen vibration.

For recording you'd probably want something like this Arkon windshield mount:

If you really want it on your dash, you could go with this one:

A quick search would have brought you to:

Looking For a Car Mount?

And there, I posted the Sprint D710 model is the one you want because it is almost the exact same size as the Skyrocket, just needs to be modified slightly

Universal holders are ridiculous - for the same price, get the one for the phone, you know you can sell it with the phone and make more money as a "package" instead of trying to keep the same ugly car dock that doesn't charge your phone after you sell the Skyrocket! And as for Pro-Clip.... I've been a big fan of theirs for a long time, but the insane pricing and having to hardwire it every time gets really old, really fast.... for HALF the price, you get an OEM Samsung charger that just needs to be modified and then use Bluetooth to get audio to your car's stereo, very simple, classy, and not ghetto rigged like this awful universal mounts!
