I am desperately looking for a bulk-less car mount for my Desire when I bumped into this genuine car mount from HTC which is really very attractive but unfortunately won't be available before beginning of July, a bit pricey though for £ 63.95 :(

Available for pre-order from several sites, google it interested

Not only does this brilliant package come with a holder, you are also supplied with a Genuine HTC Desire car charger. This is perfect for keeping your battery topped up whilst in the car, or keeping your phone going during a long journey. Simply plug in and charge, works in conjunction with your phones battery to automatically stop charging once the battery is full.

I picked up a generic phone grip from Halfords for £9 which works a treat with a £1.99 car adapter cable. Less bulky than this one, too. I'll post some pics up soon.

Strange you should mention this. I don't have any form of "official" car mount. I have an adjustable "gripping" Siemens mount clipped into my heater vent and occasionally on exitting a phone call (made with the inbuilt Car bluetooth facility) the Desire comes up with......the Navigation screen!

I wonder if this is in some way a manifestation?

I have a brodit mount and have the navipanel execute when i put the phone into the cradle, abd close when i remove it.

To achieve this i use a program called "Setting profile" Here

Set up a rule to run the navipanel when it is connected to a mains power supply and close it when it is disconnected. The only downside it that it does it when just charging it, but can live with that.

I resent paying for things like this, particularly since they're all dash mounted, so mostly subject to vibration and bouncing around.

You should try this little guide, it's aimed at the Nexus one but desire dimensions are pretty much the same aren't they?

Nice it of McGuyvering imo...

I got this one off ebay for £10.90 with a car charger ( http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...e=STRK:MEWNX:IT ) It works well, even if it doesn't launch the car panel automatically :D

i've got one of these too, but if you look closely, you'll see its not a very snug fit, its actually designed for an iPhone, they just so happened to notice many other phones fit in it too... my nokia e63 fits aswell.

Odd, mine fits perfectly. Maybe you have a slightly different one? That advert doesn't say it's compatible with the iPhone.
