EVO car mount
What car mounts are people looking at? I'm hoping to get a universal one, but I was wondering if anyone else had any other suggestions or any thoughts on this one before I threw my money at them.

Personally, I don't want a universal mount because they don't include chargers. It's really annoying to have to plug in crap every time you get in the car, and I'm trying to reduce that as much as possible.
Also, rumor has it that there will be a car dock coming in July that will charge as well as put the EVO into "Car mode", which would be really handy for me.

59.99 is a hard pill to swallow for the HTC car mount, but i do like the integrated power.
Actually, I'll get it for 45 because of the 25% accessory discount for sprint premier customers. So thats easier to take.
You can get standalone GPS' for ~100$, so they need to be careful on their pricing of just a mount.

Right now you can get this with free shipping, it shows up as a "promotional balance" to apply to your account when you go through checkout.

Ok So the Sprint car dock is going to also charge your phone and put it into car mode automatically correct? I'll have a car charger so I am not worried about plugging it in. My worry is I don't want to have to take my case off every time. I ordered a Sedieo Innocase. But also I was looking at this and my friend said it should fit in here with any case on.. What's your alls opinion this one not counting the price. It's still cheaper than Sprints. And also can you just turn on the car mode or whatever on your own when you put it in the dock? I kind of like this and wonder how well it works not suctioned to the windshield.

the link you posted is great but it's actually the exact same mount that i have posted in my link (bracketron) but it's on a bean bag. if you have to have the bean bag, then go with that...if you don't and you just want a windshield then look at the other ones by bracketron. they have a cup, windshield and vent holder. all amazing, and very cheap prices.

Thought I'd share this car mount I found, I've been roaming the forums for a while, guess it's time I contributed =P Haven't been able to find any reviews about this car mount, but the following video shows it off pretty well.
It's 30 bucks on HTCpedia.
I've been trying to find a car mount with charging capability that can be positioned on the dashboard, but this is the closest, reasonably priced alternative I could find.
