    Default Galaxy S4 car dock

    So is this clamp style really the "official" dock? I wish they would come up with a Qi or three-pin solution. So annoyed that it never properly came out for my Gnex.

    That's the one I have. It's more of a universal dock. It seems like Samsung gave up on making individual docks for different phones.

    Yeah, I've been looking to for a Samsung version for the s4 to no avail. Closest option I've seen so far is the iBolt version:
    Amazon.com: iBOLT xProDock Active Car Dock/Holder/Mount for Samsung Galaxy S 3, S4 & Note 2. Works with all cases.: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Unfortunately, it's not a dedicated Samsung S4 dock, BUT, it does activate vehicle mode and supposedly fits well even with a case on.

    I need a windshield mount that had about a 16" neck since my windshield is so deep.
    Haven't found one yet.

    I didn't want to have to mount my phone right in front of where I'm looking on the road (might get distracting), so I picked up the "Arkon SM410 Universal Windshield with Dashboard and Vent Mount".

    Amazon.com: ARKON SM410 Travelmount Windshield/Dashboard/Removable Air Vent Mount with Mega: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Bought mine in Canada. Just linking to show what it is. No idea how good it is yet... but I considered other car mounts, and I think this one seems to adjust how I need it to (and offers the right kind of room for devices to be plugged in, etc).

    Lety me know how it fits in the vents (pictures) and if the phone fits.
    My experience is that the vent holder don't fit and too small to hold the phone.

    Sent from my amazing Samsung Galaxy S4... there is none better!

    You might want to try Proclip.



    I used it with my Gnex and now with my S4. Pretty expensive but a perfect fit. They also have some universal holders.

    Be carefull with those vent mounts. I have those and it tends to move side to side a lot. What I did was wrap electrical tape around the arms so that they will not spread open and rock side to side.

    The most beautiful and light I've found is the Kenu Airframe Portable Car Mount

    I use the iBolt linked above - it's fantastic.
