So seems like we are getting some cases going for the mini. But what about car mounts. Post what you see or DIY you made. Or ideas you might have!

I use the IQ car mount thing for my iPhone and just installed it to my mini as well--

i rigged something to my current car using some epoxy and something in one of their kits, and I bring this with me when I travel

the tab is not obtrusive on the back of the phone and ipad cases, and what I rigged looks much cleaner than than those gigantic pep boys car phone mounts.

plus i can put those back-tab things on other stuff as i see fit. like now I can use the ipad as a GPS just by throwing a tab on the back of the case.

Used it today even. Have to admit its a little big for my tastes, coming from the iPhone

I'll try to post pics if I find time this week.

They have also got a YouTube channel and the following video shows the mounting:
