    I found a thread on this at XDA. Wiredforless.com is selling this car mount for $5 with coupon code WOOT + $5 flat rate shipping. I ordered two of them and with shipping it came out to $14.98.

    You'll have to apply a disc to the phone (or case). I'll post pics and comments when it arrives, but I have no idea how long that coupon code will last. Saves you $20 per device!

    I ordered this red rubberized case a few days ago. I'll wind up putting the Soundgate disc on it instead of the phone.

    Hell of a tip. Thank you very much jmxp69!

    Anyone considering buying one of these should follow the link and watch the video.
    German made, extends out, very adjustable....just what I was looking for.

    I just scored 3 of em shipped for 20 bucks.
    (what a rush watching my shopping cart total drop from $80 down to $20 with the simple addition of a coupon code) :D

    nice! in for 3, code isn't usable if you wanted 4 or more in one order. ideally i want 4, 2 in each of our 2 cars for the wife and myself. i guess i'll think about a 2nd order. i wonder how long this is good for?

    I just don't like the idea of attaching something to my phone or case.

    For that price, I'll definately order one next payday. I just hope that coupon code lasts!

    I'm generally not a fan of that either, but I received that red rubberized case from ebay today and I'll be happy to stick a disc on there and use it for road trips and such. I doubt I'll have my Evo in the car mount unless I'll be in the car for a while. So cheap plastic case with disc on for road trips, Innocase for day-to-day carrying around. This mount certainly looks more elegant than big bulky universals.

    But hey, whatever floats your boat. I will not stick discs on my phone, only on a case.

    umm... why would you need two car mounts for each car? Couldn't the passenger just hold their phone while using it?

    Anyone know where this ships out of (state)?

    I ordered yesterday and they shipped it the same day.

    It doesn't have to be just for a phone. I may try sticking one of the discs on my GPS to see how that works out too.

    This looked cool until I saw you have to glue it to your dash. Yikes, no way man. I read a few people say they would never glue anything to your phone. Wow I would never glue some tacky crap to my dash.

    Maybe that's just because I like my car tho.

    If that was the case, why doesn't the driver hold he phone while using it? The whole point of a mount is having somewhere to "mount" the phone so you dont have to hold it. When charging would you just leave it in your lap or let it slide around on the center console?

    The adhesive doesn't leave a residue when you remove it so no worries about the dash.

    If only I could purchase JUST the skeleton piece of the Seidio Active case. Maybe I will contact Seidio and see if this is possible. That would be very easy to swap out without scratching up the phone (taking it in and out of a cheap plastic case).

    Jumped in an ordered one. Hope the disc attached to the back of the phone doesn't create too much inconvenience when carrying in pocket. Oh well we will c.... Thanks for the deal.

    got my mounts in today and install went quick. mounting the base onto the center console bezel with the double sided tape seems pretty damn sturdy but the disc that mounts to the back of the phone came apart when trying to remove the phone from the mount. i was kind of worried about it before the install because the seidio active case has like a rubberized finished to it so i was pretty much right about the double sided tape not wanting to bond well. a couple dabs of the rubberized gorilla glue seems like it's a whole lot more secure so once it cures i'll update you guys. other than that, the quality of the mount is pretty good.

    Welp, looks like this doesn't work with the Evo. The soft-rubberized coating on the back prevents the mounting discs from adhering well. In order for this to work you need a case that isn't rubberized.

    I think I'm going to purchase a clear snap-on (back only) case to attach the disc to, and just keep that mounted in the car.

    Send Brian (who's really helpful, he's the owner of the company) an e-mail telling him you have an Evo and he'll send you a couple mounting discs if you need extra or allow you to return it.

    SoundGate M2 Mobile Mount Review | jRin.net

    Another review of the mount, with a lot of detail regarding size of the disc etc

    Judging by the pictures , i think with my cromatics installed and the disk added i end up with camera lens being protected

    Received mine today and must say that they are very nice and minimalist.

    Definitely a score!

    But then again there is the rubberized Evo battery cover problem.
    I managed to screw up 2 of my discs before retreating to check back to his thread.

    If you could message me Brian email address I'd be very appreciative. I'd even pay for some extra discs.
    They are really tiny and I would have had no problem attaching it to the factory cover. Like was said before, it'll give a bit of protection to the camera lens when its laid down and really doesn't take away from the appearance of the device.

    (if anyone has any great tips on a cheap, non rubberized, easy snap on/off back cover...lets hear it) :)

    Guys, The ebay rubberized cases are hard plastic with a painted coating. Get your dremel out and sand the coating on the back of the case down to the plastic. Clean with alcohol, and stab that disc on.

    Before you sand, place the disc on the case where you want it and draw an outline with a pencil around the disc so you know where to sand.

    Unfortunately, I'm traveling today and tomorrow, so if mine arrived, I don't know it yet :(
