Expensive car mount alternative
So I want to put my phone flush to the dashboard. When I was using the Samsung Focus, I had a case that I used only for when I was in the car because I put Velcro on the back of it and on my dashboard. It stuck really well and I could still see everything on my dash. I don't really want to have something sticking to the windshield and my dashboard isn't really built for having anything sticking on top of it. Instead of a case this time, I was thinking I might be able to take the part that clips on to phones (with enough room for a slim case on the HOX) and just put the Velcro on that. It was a bit annoying having to swap out cases every time. I was thinking maybe something like the Car Mount Mobile Dock for Samsung Galaxy Note would be a good choice. Since I can't post any links yet search for Car Mount Mobile Dock for Samsung Galaxy Note on smartphonepedia's website. Basically, it's a spring loaded dock so it's adjustable. Also, it has these four holders that would only hold the sides so if I place it right there should be nothing blocked. I don't really feel like spending so much for it though.
Has anyone tried this before? As long as the mount comes with at least two parts, one that attaches to the phone then attaches to a mount, I would be fine with it. Though I would want something that isn't TOO flimsy either. Or has anyone seen a mount that's kind of minimalist when it comes to holding the phone? Too many universal mounts use grips that are too large.
Edit: Alright, so I looked around some more and found a few that seem like they would work. They are on Amazon: the LAZA Zip Grip universal car mount, iShot mount: mini universal holder, CYGNETT universal car mount, and the Clingo mount. The Clingo mount is the most expensive, but has anyone tried it?
