Suggested Car Accessories

I am looking for something to both charge and dock my Curve 8330 in my car. Since I use it for navigation I want something that will support the device so it is visiable. I would really like something like the Arkon Ligther Socket Mount that actually charged the device. I am also considering this Curve Hands Free Car Mount Cradle with Power Adapter although it would be nice given the layout of my car if the charger actually supported the device instead of having two pieces.

Any suggestions?

Re: Suggested Car Accessories

Thanks for the reply!  I am not really looking for a car kit per se.  What I really want is something that will plug into a cigarette lighter socket, support the device (Curve 8330) so it is easily visible (i.e. not a cord) and not car make/model specific.

Seidio (www.seidio.com) makes a great charger/mount for the Curve.  I have one and when I take a road trip I use it exclusively. 

That, combined with my bluetooth kit make for great driving and I can always easily access my Curve.  The kit hold the curve either with or

without a case on it.

 

Here's the direct link to the product..  http://www.seidioonline.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=CK17SBB8300C06

 

 

Hope that helps.
