I bought a car dock yesterday at Best Buy for 14.99... it is a universal with the vent mount and 3M adhesive mount. It works great with my eris. Have it mounted right next to the steering wheel in my F150.
Serves its purpose, I don't need it very frequently. AND... 6 Bucks!
I got this one it's $7.99. It was only $5.99 & free shipping when I bought it. Works great for me. You can rotate it to landscape mode also.

it's so big and ugly though.
If you want the absolute BEST mount regardless of price, a RAM mount is what you need to be looking at:
RAM Mounting Systems, Inc. > Products > Cell Phone Mounts
I should add that this particular item mounts (unmounts(dismounts?)) quickly using a vent.
I'd try the $20 universal vent mount from Verizon (easy to return if you don;t like it) or a Pro-Clip.
Someone's got to make a nice, lightweight, streamlined, not whale-looking clamp that I can use horizontally without the bottom support then being on the side.
Did that make any sense at all?
I doubt it. Good luck.

I have used this mount for ~2 months with no problems. I have it installed in one of my vents.
I picked up one that has the weighted mount on the bottom at TJMaxx the other day for $16.99, I don't like attaching to the window, always leaves marks.
I just got this one $34.99. I have not had enough time to evaluate it as far as hands free. But Pandora in my car is pretty cool.

This is the one I have...love it! You do have to take off the dash and faceplate, but it was easy enough for me to do without any help from my husband. It is connected by one bolt that is totally hidden and causes no damage to the car at all. Vehicle specific mount and you will need a rotating clip to be able to use it in landscape.
Here is a link to the company.
InDash Custom Mount with Gripper Holder - GR2546/1642/InDash by:
After much searching, I purchased a Dashboard Friction Mount (beanbag weighted). There are many brands and types, mine is Nextar gps-dmbb $17.99 at Fry's.
Then I needed a mount, I found one at the Verizon store that worked for me (Universal Windshield Mount) it was discounted via work discount. About $17 Enter your location
I'll explain why this seems to be one of the most versatile arrangements.
1) The vent mounts will cause the phone to get hot whenever you have the heat on!
2) Almost any window mount will work with Dashboard Mount, even if it is not legal in your state
3) Ability to move between vehicles
4) Works with almost any phone
5) Works in portrait or Landscape mode
6) Should work with phone in case or sleeve
7) Can be easily adjusted for different drivers
Hope this helps someone
Hands down Proclip.
I like this one, but am I correct in assuming the phone cannot be in a case? I use the 2 part holster case from Verizon.
I like the Proclip for a phone but it won't work if it is in a case. Depending on the type of phone it have the option to charge when you insert it in the mount. The mounts come in two pieces, the part that is specific for your type of automobile and the part the is specific for your phone.
Has anyone tried this one?

I'm a little wary, as it has no reviews, and doesn't indicate if landscape view is possible. However, the integrated hands-free speakerphone is a nice addition at that price (if it works ok).
No case, I just bought a holster. I bought the mount with a hard wire. Love it, pricey at about $120. You get what you pay for.
I prefer a cupholder mount and here's one I'm considering:

I think the one I found is really the ULTIMATE mount. You must check it out.
I simply love it. A little pricey but worth every penny.

These cup holder mounts look pretty sweet
Those are pretty sweet. Expensive though, and it doesn't look like they would accommodate an eris with any sort of shell/case.
This looks pretty cool and would work well in my truck... Any evaluations on it yet?
