    I read somewhere Best Buy had an official car dock coming out in mid to late July. Kind of expected to see it in the Sunday ad today. Anyone have any news/info on it?

    I'm also interested in this. i've been watching the different brands very closely, but I've yet to see a good mount that isn't ridiculously expensive. I'm willing to spent upwards of $40 for a mount, but it needs to be tight, and not intrusive on the edges of the phone, and most importantly allow for landscaped viewing. Anyone have any up to date info?

    Xentris Wireless - Vehicle Vent Mount for Mobile Devices - Black - 60-1940-01-BB

    It's cheap, it's easy, and I've been using this for a while now with my Hero. It worked great for the Hero and has been fine with the EVO so far too. I use my phones for GPS and have never had any major problems with it.

    I have it mounted right next to my stereo instead of on my windshield, which just means that I had to use the sticky mount instead of just the suction cup.

    btw... I just noticed that there's an error on Best Buy's website... looks like they have the names mixed up for the mounts. Even though it says 'vent mount,' it still links to the 'windshield mount.'

    Are the sides a lot bigger than the EVO? I can't seem to find a universal vent mount system than doesn't engulf the EVO.

    Any pics of your setup by chance?

    I'm holding out for the official mount as well, but I haven't found it on shelves yet.

    It is the end of the mopnth and have not heard anymore about the car mount from HTC. Some have to have seen the actual device. Where is it?

    I think people saw them in their dreams. I know I did.

    Be suspicious. Especially if you saw Leonardo DiCaprio putting it in your car.

    I remember seeing a thread about this a few weeks ago.

    A member here, I don't remember who, emailed HTC and asked them about the windshield mount. HTC told him/her that they currently had no plans to produce the mount.

    Now whether or not they were going to me the ones to bring this to market or not I don't know, but it looks like its all a pipe dream at this point.

    The Kensington looks pretty cool, but if I can get the function of the HD2 car mount on my evo I would be very stoked. I travel a lot, and right now I am using a tom tom xl 120 with a 4.3 in screen. My evo's navigation apps such as google maps and yes even sprint navigation work very well, so the promised car mount would be awesome.
