Just ordered me one of those.

I hate universal holders and I hate passive holders. This seems like the best choice right now, since the official merchandise is still not in sight...

I have one. It works super. You'll be really happy with it.

Google is missing the boat huge on this car dock.

That's good to hear, MadFlava. I had one of those for my previous phone (Touch Diamond) and that one has served me perfectly too.

Installed mine yesterday. I love it. The cords are ugly but I'll work on that when I get a chance.

Well, received mine today, and... my Nexus One does not fit??? It will not slide far enough over the micro-usb connection.... any of you guys experienced anything like this?

It does not charge now... and there's like 2mm of space left between the bottom of my Nexus One and the holder.. I've used force to some extent, but it just will not slide any further..

I'm new here so I can't post links but go to androidforums.com and search for the thread ProClip Mounting System. In there you'll find a guy (dbpaddler) that has a lot of knowledge about these mounts. He's a re-seller for Brodit I think. Tell him about your problem and maybe he can help.

Sounds very odd. Can you post us a few pictures of what's going on?

See attachment. The micro-usb connector in the holder is about 4.5mm high, but my Nexus One will only slide over it like for 2mm and then it feels like it is blocked by something. I've used force, but no movement whatsoever.

I find it strange too.. I don't see anything odd on the connector, nor on the female connector on my Nexus One. I guess I'll take it back to the store...

How odd. It looks like the connector is slightly left of centre, if you use the trackball to be centre... no jiggling will make it fit?
