    Anyone know good car mounts? I want to use my phone as a sat nav, but i went to halfords... they all don't fit :(
    I want one that can rotate landscare (safe) without it wobbling or something

    I got one off ebay, it came from Hong Kong but didn't take long to get here, and I can't fault it.

    Here is a link

    CAR HOLDER+CHARGER+CASE FOR Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 uk on eBay (end time 01-Oct-10 23:13:33 BST)

    The holder can go to pretty much any position, it also has a hole for the camera lens so you can use "daily voyager", it's like turning your phone into a black box recorder,the charger works great too. The flip case wasn't included when I bought mine so I can't vouch for it. I was really impressed

    Does the charger, actually chage the battery during sat nav use? I had a charger for my blackberry and it won't charge with enough power to actually charge the battery.

    Has anyone come across the SE-branded mount, the AN150 or the car kit CK100 that includes the mount?

    please check whether the mount is specifically for an x10 or is it the universal type. I prefer the ones that are designed for the phone I am using, although the universal mount does have the advantage of taking most phones (and sat navs), but you may find that it is difficult to connect the charger or allow photo capture.

    I would also recommend screen mounting over vent mounting, I tried a vent mount but found it far too sloppy, whereas a good screen mount is rock solid

    Photo capture...? When it's mounted to the windscreen? Am I missing something obvious? That does, I'm afraid, happen a lot. :thinking:

    look up daily voyager in the market, it's a really good app that records your journey on video. I have only ever used it for fun, but it could come in very handy if you have a bump and your version of events is different from the other party. Look it up and let me know what you think.

    Edit. Sorry, that should read "DailyRoads Voyager"
