The new BMW MINI can be bought with a built in CD-ROM based Satellite Navigation system with the Navigation display built into the central speedometer housing, the speedometer being moved to a position in front of the steering wheel alongside the Tachometer. This system though nice is however is rather expensive and cannot be transferred to another vehicle.
holuxincar.php Holux In-Car Photos with DashMount Bracket
I purchased a HOLUX GM 210 GPS unit and immediately noticed how much stronger the signal was and how much shorter the acquisition times were. I also purchased a MEMPLUG Dual CF Exp Jacket for the memory card.
transparentmount.php Homebuilt Transparent iPAQ Mount
After searching for some time to find the perfect solution as a car mount the obvious mount should be the Destinator/Brodit car mount. But unsatisfied with price I

jasonincar.php Jason's in-car Custom Mount
I have been running this setup now for about 2 years now as it was the result of being unable to obtain a mount at the time, nobody was importing anything. How things have changed. Spurred on by necessity I decided to have a go and seeing what I could do with my recently redundant serial cradle.
john-childs.php John Child's Bike Mount
Map reading on a bike is even more of a pain than it is in a car. To check your route you need to pull up and park, remove your gloves, dig the map out from your pocket or bag, unfold it to the correct place and only then can you take a look at your route.

neilincar.php Neil Richards Audi A4 In-Car Mount
I have Audi A4 3.0 Quattro Sport that has everything but SatNav - which has been irritating me for the past few months. The Audi SatNav system retro-fitted is prohibitively expensive, and I felt other less expensive systems were too much of a compromise (and still too expensive).
auditt.php Peter Mills' SAAB In-Car Mount
My car setup currently consists of an Compaq iPAQ and a Socket Bluetooth GPS. I have installed this the iPAQ using a Brodit Proclip and powered cradle in my Audi TT, I modified the fit by first not using the double sided tape on the Proclip and secondly by using heavy duty Velcro to mount the cradle to the Proclip. You will see this shown in the fig 1 below.

simknaincar.php Simkna's In-Car Mount
I have used my trusty Toshiba e570 happily for quite some time on an Arkon universal mount and just upgraded to a new HP iPAQ 2215. The strange power lead connector gubbins (converter) was annoying me, it stuck out way too far from the the bottom of the HP iPAQ 2215, so I decided to make my own mounting system for it, with power permanently attached.

tedsmount.php Ted Kay's Camera Ball/Socket Mount
One thing members having been thinking about for a while now is how to get a mount that moves freely when you want it to, so you can move the direction the Pocket PC is facing in easily. Ted has taken this thought and expanded upon this by creating his own mount and fixing it to his car dashboard.
