    Just got it today, took about 2 seconds to install... so far love it. This is the $2.99 or cheaper car mount for the HTC EVO 4G shipped from Hong Kong. Here's a few pics of it installed. I haven't got to take a ride yet with it installed but it's very sturdy and I pulled pretty hard and it didn't want to let go of the a/c vent. Only issue I can see is the phone getting to cold from the a/c vent... but is that possible?

    (Sorry the pics have that white space on them... the sun was wicked this morning when I was snapping the photos and I couldn't get away from it in all the angles)

    Tiny package... packed like it could survive a plane crash. Seriously it seemed water tight from all the packing tape they used.

    I'll add a few pictures hopefully if my co-worker and I goto lunch today so I can show you the phone mounted in. Kinda hard to take a picture of the phone with the phone :)...

    Also you phone MUST be naked to work in this and there is NO room for anything... I have a few little android vinyls on the back of my evo and they kinda interfere with the holder... it's that tight

    i had that same style vent mount piece for my touch pro 2 and it's pretty good. doesn't slide around like most due to the spring action clip.

    No problem, I drove with it during lunch. Hit the highway and my lowered truck hits bumps pretty hard and the mount held perfectly. Got the internal temps down to 70 as well :)

    I've give this mount a 4.5 out of 5. Because i've only had it a few hours and i'm betting on it holding up for a good amount of time.
