    I would like a heads up on what you lot think is the best, simple and cheap car mount for the HTC Desire.

    I see loads on Amazon and eBay for under a tenner but are they any good.

    Cheers.

    I've just got some universal mount from a local phone store. Nothing special, but it does the trick.

    However I will buy the official one when I get some money, it looks well worth it just for the simplicity of being able to dock it and not fiddle around with wires!

    I'd like to see one that had car charger and aux audio connections that just clicks in place like you see with the iphone. Guess nobody makes those, huh?

    I would have thought sticking your phone next to a strong magnet wasn't that great an idea, but I could be wrong...

    I found one of these in Halfrauds, and it's actually quite good, as the front cupholder in my truck is just at dashboard level, so the phone is held quite high up and about 6 inches from my left hand. I can see the screen, and the car charger cable will hang down underneath far enough to reach the power socket.
    The phone is also in the draught from the face-level cold air vents, so no problem with it overheating, as these only produce cold air or nothing.
    Easily removed and stashed in a cubbyhole when I'm out of the car, so no extra encouragement for scrotes to break in.

    I bought one of these off Amazon ---

    Modern-Tech In-Car Windscreen Suction Holder: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    The Desire fits perfectly and is very secure.
    I use it with a HTC car charger, which incidentally charged my phone from 70 to 92% this morning after a 1 hour drive using Google Nav (with GPS obviously). It didn't get too hot either (I think it was at 33 oC).

    Hope my twopeneth helps you with all the choices you've been given previously.
