    Hi folks,

    I've been through three different car mounts so far, they of the "universal" variety... one with rubber side clamps, one padded, both with feet underneath... none of them were to my liking... didn't hold my Epic well enough, either fell out (thankfully while I was monitoring it) or felt like it could if I hit too big a bump.

    My question is if anyone has found a really good car mount yet, specifically for the Epic preferably? I prefer a windshield mount, but I'm willing to consider other options if it's sturdy and I can position it decently in my car.

    Thanks,
    Frank

    I just got the Breffo Spiderpodium (thanks to a iLounge article). It's a mount for almost anywhere...not just for the car. Take a look.

    Just ordered one of the Breffos. Thanks for the tip on that. It looks cool and will do till a proper car mount gets released...if ever!

    One of the most useful uses looks to be as a bike mount, but I'll have to see if it grips well enough to be secure.

    That does indeed look very cool, think I'll order one up as well. Thanks!

    You actually looked and posted in the wrong forum. There's an accessory forum for the Epic. In there you would've found this thread.

    Of course I have my bias...
