    I want to purchase the TomTom Navigator Bluetooth 5 for my Treo 650 and I want to mount it in my car on the center vents on my dashboard rather than using suction cups on my windshield or dashboard and having that weird bendy arm looking thing. The thing is, the one I was looking at: http://store.everythingtreo.com/cont...-78--302-1.htm doesn't swivel or angle towards the driver. It stays completely flush against the vents, and I would rather have the option to angle it towards me or away from me for my passenger to see while I'm driving. Any of you guys have any suggestions as to a good one? I drive a 2003 Volkswagen Passat GLX just so you guys can know the layout of the dash and the vents. Thanks

    Have you checked out ProClip? They are awesome...

    I have tried the vent mount option for my Treo 650 and find it unstable. I just ordered the proclips system using the adjustable holder for the ipod with tilt and swivel which I hope will hold my Treo in its leather case.

    I will post feedback and pictures once I have it set up. Sounds good on paper. Hopefully it will live up to the high expectation and high cost!

    I've looked at their products, and the one that caught my eye was the swivel holder, and the charging swivel holder, but I don't know if they swivel and angle freely, or if they rachet and lock in increments (which is what I want). Like some cell phone holsters that swivel, they spin freely and I don't want that with this holder because if I am going a bit fast and take a turn, curve, or corner, I don't want my Treo to turn away from me.

    These are the ones that I liked.:

    Please post a link to the one which was unstable for you, and I would appreciate if you could post up why you found it to be so.

    Also, if you can post link to the new one you ordered, I would be appreciative of that as well. Thanks.

    The vent mount is one you would find at most mass merchants. I bought one a Target and one at Kmart. They were almost identical and stunk.

    What I am getting from Proclips is the following

    I will be getting the proclip solution on Friday and plan to install it over the weekend.
