    PICS TO FOLLOW once its daylight again :D

    I have a 2002 chevy blazer 2 door, your mounting location may vary depending on your vehicle.

    I went to sprint today and picked up

    - a"universal vehicle mount travelers kit" from sprint for 39.99 less my
    premier discount

    - a second USB to micro USB sync/charging cable

    - a 6 ft USB extension cord from walmart

    - a 12v plug to USB power outlet (with 2 outlets)

    I stuck the mount in the upper left corner of the windshield, ran the micro USB cable around the dock so it stays put, and ran the cord down under the A pillar trim, under my dashboard, connected it to a 6 foot USB extension cord, then ran it back out next to my 12 volt outlet, and plugged it into the car outlet to dual USB outlet. Now, when I get into my truck, I put the EVO in the mount, plug in the charger, and its good to go! I just need to figure out something for voice calls ( I dont have a bluetooth headset, or a BT speakerphone... i'll prolly end up getting one now)
    but I can drive down the road, have my EVO secured, charging, out of the way, but still visible and easily accessible.

    Like I said, I'll post pics tomorrow once its daylight out, possibly with additional mods
