There are belt clip holsters for the Otter Box too. You could do the same thing.Hrm, this is almost great but I'd have to take it out of the otterbox every time I got in the car and put it back in when ever I get out
I had an idea of getting one that slides in. Instead of the ball you push in. That you can get a belt clip that slides in, and a suction cup that slides in also.Hrm, this is almost great but I'd have to take it out of the otterbox every time I got in the car and put it back in when ever I get out
I use something like that, except it has a window mount. but i don't like it b/c it rattles. (the side arms that hold the phone). I'm going to try this custom mount today. Got all the parts as of yesterday.Well..... I think driving is one of those things where you need to focus on REALITY not an augmented reality.
I'm using a air vent mount for my hero, as my car's windshield is too deep (Volvo S80)
Works fantasticly, and what I love is that it rotates 90 degrees so when using google maps/nav I can have it widescreen.
The version i purchased in the store looks a bit different, but it is very adjustable so that the USB power cord can still be plugged in, and its the first universal mount I've ever used that holds the phone securely that doesn't mess with the volume buttons.
Be careful. There is one style of belt clip going around that mounts face-down. This obviously won't work for you.So I just went to check a little on ebay for the parts. I ordered the Garmin 200 mount for $3.99 (amazing), but then there are no more of the custom belt clips from mobilesandpdas. I am under the impression that most other similar looking belt clips would do the job, am I correct?
Thanks for any help in advance....
Sweet. I don't suppose you have access to a Seidio case to test it on? The holster designed to hold it with the case on only works with it facing in.Just wanted to give my thanks for this guide as well. Thanks to bbv203's insight in the Otterbox thread, I found that I could use a Samsung Moment holster instead of one designed for the Hero when making my mount so that it holds the Hero in its Commuter case. It takes a little trimming to make the volume buttons fit with the screen out and a little extra routing so that the camera is fully visible, but the result is well worth the effort!
If any one's interested, I did end up getting one to try with a Seidio case and it works great. Haven't made up the mount yet, but I did cut off the belt clip and opened up the slot on the side for the volume buttons.Sweet. I don't suppose you have access to a Seidio case to test it on?

Thanks! Works great on a plastic disc on the dash of my Element.You can also just go to DealExtreme and get one of their universal mounts. They take a while to ship but they're ridiculously cheap:
(Link removed, XDA won't post it because I'm new? Dumb. This was a link to a search for "universal car mount.")
Here's the one I got:
(Still can't post a link but the SKU on their site is 41529.)
The one thing I have to be careful of is that it doesn't hold down the volume down rocker when I put it in, but for $5 it's awesome. Stays well-attached and fully folded it's about the size of a can of Fancy Feast (cat food).
