    Hey,

    I'm going on a trip this weekend, and I'll be using GPS. I was looking into the car mounts, and I like the iGrip Vent Mount. Anybody have any experience with these? I'm not too happy about it costing $30 (after 2 day shipping), but it may be the best and only choice, so whatever. I might try to make one, but I don't know if that gooseneck stuff is readily available at the hardware store.

    I'm very interested in what you decide on. Please post f/u (maybe pix).

    Thanks,

    If you want the iGrip, save yourself about $25 and get the knock off from Hong Kong that is the exact same thing.

    I used to use ProClip in my car and those in any other car I'd be driving. I've got about 4 of them (the knock offs) now. None have broken yet, I just brought a bunch in case any ever do break. Now that I've got the Sprint HTC Touch Pro, I've taken my old 800w ProClip and modified it to use the iGrip knockoff. Now I've got a hack psedo-Proclip car mount, that can hold any device I ever buy .

    If you want good and cheap, get the iGrip knock off. If you want the best there is, get ProClip.

    Unless shipping from Hong Kong has improved vastly, the 7-14 day ETA is not gonna fly.

    If you need it fast, the Hong Kong knock off will not work for you.

    I've seen various universal mounts in stores. Radio Shack, Best Buy, they've got some, but different brands. I mean if you need it right away.

    I am not a big fan of the vent mounts - it puts the phone way too low (at least in my car) for GPS use. The windshield mounts work better in my opinion as it puts the phone up higher so your eyes can stay on the road.

    I picked up a cheap mount from Walmart today...the clips don't stay on my vents, but it did some with some double sided tape so I will just make something up.

    I bought the one darnell mentioned, one of the side clips broke right away and I found this $6 one has worked very well for 5 months of lot of use.
