There are a couple of ways...if you have a flat surface that's free, you can use buttons that have adhesive backs that accept a belt clip button. They used to be commonly available in stores, but now usually have to be found on eBay or online as part of a kit. One example is the Arkon CM219, a belt kit that includes a small mounting plate that sticks anywhere you want to mount the phone via a button. If you search eBay or the Web on "universal belt clip" "or universal belt clip car" you'll see them come up. Here's an example:

If you want to mount the phone on top of the dash, or on the windshield, Pro.Fit International makes a couple of mounts. The windshield mount is known as the WM-36EXP WindowMate Express, which includes a standard suction mount with a flexible arm and a holder that accepts the button.

If you want an adhesive mount for the dash, you can order the Pro.Fit Loboy LB-600 Mount, which is a short universal dash mount, combined with the EM-1224 Holder, which is the button adapter used as part of the WM-36EXP. I'd imagine this same setup could also be used with a bean bag mount for the dash.

Pro.Fit International also makes custom car mounts for dozens of vehicles that may be able to be combined with the EM-1224 as well.

There is also a unit that allows mounting elsewhere in the car, like the console, known as the UL-747 Ultimount. They even make a "marine version" for a boat.
