    Has anyone successfully used a proclip mount w/ a wired gps? I'm looking at purchasing the i.trek s3 mouse gps from semsons:

    and have the proclip shown here:

    Problem is the cable holder. The proclip is designed to hold just the power cable in place, while the gps obviously needs the entire synch cable. My options right now are to break out the dremel & superglue or buy a seidio holder. Someone else out there has to have tried a wired gps with the proclip.

    TIA

    You can get Seidio G2200 Car kit which can hold and charge your Treo, It also has RJ-11 port on the cradle which you can plug the wired GPS receiver directly into the cradle to connect to Treo. It will be a much cleaner setup. No tangled wires.

    Thanks for the reply. Picking up one of your holders is my backup plan. Just trying to keep costs down and use what I already have.

    One question about the holder. I believe one of the issues I had with the seidio holder was that the power jack was on the right side. My current setup is pictured in the link below. I'd rather not have the power cable interfere with the radio.

    therf,

    Have you also looked at the Seidio G2350 (their new cradle that includes a serial GPS receiver built inside the cradle for ~$160)..then you dont have to worry about the GPS data & power cables...nor the GPS box flying around.

    the power is on the right, but if you really want to clean it up use their hardwire cable (which is just a small right angle jack with some wire leads) and take that lead into your dash and solder it to one of the cars power leads that is sitting right behind in your dash...waah laah..no more power cable dangling on the way to your cigarette lighter

    I've got the G4850 (which as stereo out and speakerphone)..take a look at the bottom of this post

    but you can see some G2350 discussion here

    anyway, just my 2 cents (although it may be more than you are looking to spend)

    davisdog ,

    I have been following with interest both of those threads. My only issue with purchasing the combined gps/holder is that it's 650 specific. If the day comes where I want to upgrade to a 700p (or whatever) I'm guessing the seidio is useless. At least if I get the external gps I can reuse that. If I didn't have that issue I probably would have gone for the 2350.

    I use the Seidio G2100S, but I have hard wired the cable to the ignition, using a Holux GR-213 wired receiver powered by the Seidio cradle.
    See my setup here. I have attached my setup below so you can see how my power cable fits with my radio.
