Windshield Car Mount for Dinc
I have not seen too many recent updates to this issue, and I don't want a Proclip, dash mount, so I thought I would start another thread.
I have found that the windshield mount that I used for my bb storm, which grips the phone on both sides, causes problems with the touchscreen on my dinc. Has anyone come accross a windshield mount, or anything other than proclip, that works well with the dinc? In addition I use a clamshell holster, so I am also hoping for something that accomodates that. I know..picky picky. But why are dinc accessories so limited compared to Motorola? It does give me a bit of buyers remorse.
Thanks In Advance

Here's the DInc with my Arkon Mega Grip beanbag mount, it's different from the one already posted. This on is cool because it's 2 mounts in 1, the dash / console and the windshield mount.
$20 from Arkon's site:

Here's a vid:

I got this iPhone mount from monoprice and the Dinc fits pretty well:
For only $2.37 each when QTY 50+ purchased - Windshield Mount with Flexible Arm for iPhone 3G/3GS | Bracket / Stand for iPhone & Blackberry
It's a little tight and it definitely will not work with any case, but for $3 plus shipping, it's works pretty good. The biggest issue is you need to use the holder upside down since the side with two corner supports blocks the usb port.
However, the car charger from monoprice sucks. Not worth the $1.

For example, on the GripIt you have to pump the pin on the side multiple times to open the arms, then put in your phone, then squeeze the arms shut. For the Mega Grip, you just put your phone in and squeeze the arms, then push a button on the side and the arms pop open. Much easier.
edit: Here's 2 videos, one of the Bracketron GripIt and one of the Arkon Mega Grip that show the action of how they work. The griping method of the GripIt is just a ridiculous design decision to me, Arkon's method is much more elegant.
