    Not sure if anyone else has done this but if you wanted to use your DROID to record video while you drive a simple modification will allow your Motorola car mount to hold the phone while you drive and record.

    To do the modification just drill a hole through the back the cradle where the camera is and you now have a mounted windshield cam. You might have to play with the angle of of the mount a bit to keep it out of the way.

    It's not 1080p or anything but the quality isn't bad.

    Fire up Qik and see how well it streams live while driving.

    I used my old universal carmount to do video's while driving, I thought it was pretty cool, not much use unless you caught an accident like someone backing into you and claiming you rear ended them, then BAM! video evidence..

    I thought it was more useful to use apps like "Layar" so you can see locations in relation to where your car is facing

    My car-mount has a port for the camera to peep through.

    Thought that was everyone?

    Guess I was wrong

    Is there a way to do time lapse recording with the droid?

    I'll have to check out Layar...hadn't heard of that one before. I have only taken one video using this method just to play around and not 1min after starting it I happened onto a major accident.

    I don't really have a good reason to do this but every once in a while I think I wish I could have had that on video. The built in recorder is a bit slow to start for the "need it now" video though.

    From what I've read on the market it looks like time-lapse is the real deal and lapsedroid is pretty weak sauce..I tried downloading time-lapse lite, but wouldn't download..purchasing full right now
