Default Holster for Curve for car using GPS

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone,

I am hoping that someone can help me out here. I have activated the GPS on my Curve 8330. The problem is that there is nowhere to put the curve in my car so that I will be able to see the maps while driving. I have a Mazda3 which is an all plastic dash. I have tried using the blackberry sleeve with a clip and tried to attach that to my dash to no avail. The sticky stuff only holds for a couple of days and then it lets loose. I have also tried to attach it with velcro and the velcro doesn't hold the phone in place. Any suggestions that won't ruin my brand new dash?

Thank you all so much in advance!

Darlene

Something like this may work, mounted from the AC vent: Amazon.com: iGRIP Mini gripper phone holder with vent mount: Cell Phones & Service

I have also seen them that mount in a cup holder.

Hey, good question. I wondered about this myself.

For a car mount, I use a proclip from proclipusa.com. It's built specifically for my model car and holds the bb in a perfect position for viewing.

I would be more concerned about the HOT air a few months from now.

i have a mazda mx 5 with a plastic dash and i use some car shop body tape. this usually lasts a couple of months before slipping but at 2 for about 6 pieces and only 1/2 used each time i don't mind cos it leave no lasting damage.

i also use a Krussell case and their additionally bought mount with case clip.

work fine for using the phone as a sat nav or seeing the calls coming in.

there you go

a little krussel clip stuck to the dash which then allows me to clip my curve onto it and whilst im driving i've got the sat nav / phone visible.

just behind the gear stick is my bluetooth earpiece.

the whole process is a ritual.

curve out of holster and into Krussel windowed case, then onto clip, then bluetooth on and then start the car.
