    Supposedly exclusive to Precentral Store, and it looks like a nice fit. Seems to snap on to the back and does not cover up any of the ports.

    There are also mounts for windshield and cigarette lighter.

    Looks like a much cheaper solution than getting a proclip setup.

    Just ordered one, see how it goes.

    How do we know if it will fit/work in our car?

    I purchased the Swivel Mount model for my Pre. I made a similar one for my 755p out of two different mounts that worked great so I'm hoping this will be just as good.

    I have never used a vent-mounted car holster. I take it that these prevent the vents from being adjusted/closed, but do they break the vent slats? Do they move the vent slats, causing you to constantly adjust the holster?

    I guess one benefit is that it will cool down the Pre when its generating all of that heat!

    I have use a vent mount for a short time a few years ago for a different phone and that vent broke completely out a few months later. Plus it did block the vent reducing air flow.

    Waaaaaaah! I *just* bought a non-custom mount @ Office Depot! Works fine, but the iGrip looks, well, custom. Oh, well.

    I've been using an iGrip vent mount for my Treo 755p in my car for years. I was bummed that when i got my Pre I no longer had a car mount. I'm really excited that I can buy the $13 custom attachment and it'll work with my old vent mount attachment! I wish I could hear some reviews before ordering, but I might just have to trust that it works well since their mount has worked so well for me over the past 3+ years. My ideal solution would be this + a touchstone back + swivel to put it in landscape mode. If I had that, it would be the ultimate mount! Please iGrip, create something like that!

    EDIT: as for those worried about their car vents, I haven't had anything break on me, and though I get a little worried about heat blowing directly on my phone (in the winter), it has never caused a problem. Overall, my vent is the ideal place to put the phone.

    i'd guess your best bet would be a universal holder. I doubt any company will develop a special holder for every available case.

    I bought a nice holder on ebay. If you search for Palm Pre High Quality Windshield Mount you will see what a great fit it is. I used it on a trip this last weekend and it worked great. I live in California so I cannot use it on my windshiled, so I clamped it on my bean bag GPS holder and it stayed right where I wanted it on my dash. It has cut outs on the sides so you can charge it while in the holder and it has feet to keep it from slipping down. The grip on the sides is gentle and a button opens the sides slowly. It comes with a clip so you can put on a vent, but I prefer the dash application.

    Also, I have my Pre in a leather flip down case and it held it while still in the case so no problem there.

    I may have to give this a try. It doesn't cover up the USB port which is good.

    And it's made in Germany. You know the Germans make good stuff.

    Added pictures to the first post for the lazy people

    Hope I don't break the forum's resolution though.

    Anyways, it looks pretty nice, and leaves all functionality intact (opening keyboard, not covering USB or speakers).

    I am wondering if there is any soft material between the clip and the phone however (to prevent scratching). Also wondering if Pre's with skins of them will still fit fine.

    What the heck is up with the shipping costs on these things!?! $6 shipping on a little $13 piece of plastic?! I think i'm gonna wait until they offer free shipping. This is just ridiculous.

    I don't know if they've ever offered free shipping. I assume, however, that amazon will probably carry this sometime in the future, and they have free shipping for orders over $25.

    I'll probably bite and get this sometime soon though. Plus it's nice to support Precentral.

    I agree that I'd rather support PreCentral. It's an awesome site, but when places inflate their shipping like that, it annoys me.
