    Does anyone have a cover for their Droid, like the one here: Motorola Droid Red Cover
    I am getting one and am wondering if it will work with the vehicle mount by Motorola - Vehicle Mount

    Thanks in advance

    i have a similar case and the car mount. doesn't fit with the back on..fits if you just use the front bezel cover (that's all i use).

    Are there other mounts out there that anyone knows of that work great with the Droid? I know the Motorola mount has a magnet in it to keep the screen on. Do any others?

    Well, I have a hardsnap-on case that I got from Verizon. I have to remove the back to fit the phone onto the desktop docking station, but I can leave it on on the car. I have a Verizon universal vent-mount holder. It's the type that squeezes closed. I turned the mount sideways, glued a magnet on it and it works great: charger fits fine, camera and speaker are uncovered, and it automatically goes onto car mode as soon as I place it in the holder.

    Now, if they would fix it so that the phone displays in landscape when in car mode instead of only portrait...

    I modded one of those generic grabs the device by the sides/top bottom mounts with a magnet. Got it at Best Buy. Works just fine. Make sure you get one that you can adjust the arms up and down though. The one I had didn't do that so I had to cut a slot for the usb cable. I have the proper mount now though, I don't have the phone in a case or anything.
