I'm looking at the iSkin case for my iPod and now I'm trying to find a car mount that will work with it. I think I might want a cupholder mount since I don't want to modify or stick anything to the dash. Does anyone know of a cupholder mount that will work with the iSkin and hold it firmly in place? I suppose what I'm thinking about is that the difference in overall size of my iPod will change due to the thickness of the iSkin.

I'm not completely stuck on purchasing the iSkin so other recommendations would be nice too! I have a 4G iPod.

I got a mount and holder from http://www.proclipusa.com . With some creative wiring it can look professional. Very easy to install and you don't need to really modify anything. You won't be able to use the iSkin with it however.

Thanks....but I don't want to have to remove the skin everytime. I'll check it out though!

All the cup holder mounts will not allow you to use them with the skin on. I tried.

I've had skins and don't really like them. I just bought a Contour Design case and love it.

I like that contour design one. Screen protector? And is the "latch" mechanism secure? Won't just pop open?

The screen is protected by plastic and the latch is very secure.

I just ordered the Contour case two minutes ago. Should be here in a few days. Thanks for the feedback.
