    Hi there

    First off, this is a great forum! It's my first time with a smartphone and I'm enjoying the Hero a lot.

    I've got into getting apps and found CoPilot Live to be great - but I need to be able to mount the Hero somewhere in my car securely so that I can use the sat nav safely.

    I've seen a few mounts mentioned, but usually in the context of listening to music or recharging.

    If anyone can recommend a mount they've had personal experience of using that would be great.

    Thanks

    I bought a generic Adapt car holder that features a suction cup to mount it to the windscreen. Works great, can't beat the price.

    Now, if you don't mind drilling holes or hang it from the air-outlets, look at Brodit. Their proclips are very good.

    I use the following holder for mine, came with a charger too, and also flips around, although I only really use it in portrait as I can see further ahead when using CoPilot than landscape mode. I did also purchase an fm transmitter too from amazon, can't remember the link though sorry. Absolutely perfect combination!

    I quite fancied getting this one until I read the reviews on it :( I don't fancy risking my phone getting scratched to bits or have it fall to it's death.

    That's great! A huge amount of options... I shall investigate - or maybe I should just get them all and have the car covered in fixtures and fittings ;-) L

    I swear by Brodit active holders (the bit that is specific to your phone) and mounts (the bit that is specific for your car). I have used them for my last 3 phones, including the Hero. Not cheap but the best.
