Official Vehicle DockTips

    Bought the same exact holder, but with a different base, I got the one that has a suction cup. Hopefully it will be good enough until the official ibolt dock comes out.

    You planning to drill holes in your car? =/

    What's with the screws in the picture, I could only imagine it being used to screw the base to the dash. How would you install it then?

    Y'all don't know by now that DrEx is making accessories in his basement. :D

    Sorry bro, I'm not posting pics of that one. I already had in Photon forum.

    That's fine. I think I'll be waiting for the ibolt anyways. Already bought 2 temporary car docks for the mean time.

    Was just curious what it looked like.

    nah, I'm just messin' with u. I will post pics when the docks come in, will likely be temporary until iBolt shows what they came up with and if that isn't to my liking, I will probably try the note 1 Mount which uses the richter connector

    Just checking if you'd be willing to take pics of your note 2 in the note 1 dock. Sounds like the biggest issue/hurdle is the top clamp, but if that's the case I'd like to see it before attempting to purchase and modify to work.

    Also, can you confirm that you meant audio didn't work with 3.5mm output on the actual dock?

    hey guys... i got the samsung dock for note 2... but it doesnt stick to my dash's plastic at all, so i am returning it... do u know of any docks that will stick to non-glass surfaces, or even slightly curved surfaces?... if there is nothing as such out there, im afraid im stuck with docks that u stick in ur vents... but then im a little worried to have heat blasting to the back of my phone...

    any suggestions? thanks guys

    I highly recommend getting a proClip vehicle specific mount first.

  13. Sweet, just ordered that richter mount, and will get the proclip next week. Very nice setup. I didn't want anything mounted to my dash or windshield, or in front of a vent, this puts it right to the side of one of my vents, PERFECT. Just need to find the right holder that works with my case now.

    you did use the 25% off, right?

    I'd also get a backup garmin attachment from amazon. Standard usually is either of the two.
  15. How and where do I get 25% off :eek: ?

    It's the big banner on the homepage of their website. It even has the code listed.
  17. Lol, I feel pretty stupid for missing that. I haven't ordered from them yet. I was going to wait until late next week, but it looks like I better do it before the sale ends.

    No worries. You probably could've called them to apply it if you had ordered already. They don't have sales like that very often, so I'd definitely jump on it. The dock they have for the note 2 isn't that great, but check if it works with cases

    What are you guys using for power in your car? I have an old micro usb charger that I used to use with my blackberry but wondering if that is good to use with the note 2? Are you all planning to use a generic or only the Samsung note 2 car charger?

    More important for charging is having a 2 amp charger. The regular chargers work, but don't charge as fast.

    I agree. I have 2.1 amp. I figure 5.5 screen, GPS, watching a movie, and wifi tether simultaneously will require a LOT.

    I was dumb enough to try a 4.2 from ebay that doesn't seem to be a true 4.2. That's what I get for trying to be to frugal.
  23. As luck would have it, I ordered a vehicle dock for another project already. Basically, I wanted to mount it to the underside of a floating shelf next to my bed since my alarm clock takes up the entire shelf. It looks like I can take the arm from this and mount it under my shelf, and the cradle will attach to the richter mount drexappeal posted above

    and then to the Proclip mount so I can move it from my truck to my bedroom if needed, it also comes with a vent clip that I will probably put in the wifes car.

    So many ways to skin a cat.
  25. This didn't work, btw. The car mount has a smaller richter mount than the ebay swivel mount:mad:. back to the drawing board.
