    I once saw, at a mall, a car mount with a bunch on little suction cups instead of clips to hold your phone...anyone know where or what they are called or when i can find it?

    Thanks in advance.

    ***Update***

    My fiance found it! its a NANDO RIDER. And I am having her return it - this thing does not justify $150!!!!! It also functions as an FM transmitter but the quality of it is very poor, the buttons feel cheap, you can see traces of glue from them mounting the suction cups, and they use cheap plastic.

    But I love that you don't need clips to hold on to your phone. And it holds it very well!

    I am now looking to make my own, I'll come back with whatever it is I mock up.

    I don't think I have ever seen something like you are describing.

    I will say this though... there is no way in hell I would ever trust a devise designed that way with my electronics. Doesn't seem safe at all. One little pothole and your cell phones going to go flying.

    Best case senerio it falls safely onto a seat. Okay senerio is that it crashes to your floorboard and breaks the phone. Worse case senerio it flys into your head and kills you.

    Thanks papamarik, but thats not then one. This one does not pertain to any phone and is universal with just about any small electronic device.
    Thanks though

    well i tested it with my phone and i was shockingly impressed as to how well it held my phone! it had about ten little suction cups and they were made of that really flexible rubber material that provided an awesome grip.

    The mall is like 40 minutes away from me, and was like $40! I figured I would be able to find in online for much cheaper, and to my surprise - I cant find it at all :(

    search universal car mount on amazon.com, lots of stuff like that, though none with 'small suction cups' that I've seen.

    i like yours better. the one the guy on overclockers uk made looks like it'd be difficult to remove the phone out of the case when exiting the vehicle... i don't want to carry part of the mount in my pocket.

    won't it be grounded when you plug in the charger? i usually keep my phone charging while in the car.

    update...and more pictures to come... no more ugly clips. and i can stick any phone or device, such as an my iTouch, or my fiance's iPhone when she uses my truck and I am not limited to one device or dealing with adjusting the clips.

    $150??? i don't think so sir. That's more than I paid for the phone, and when you look at usage per dollar...well, c'mon now.
