    I'm sure this has been covered before, but I wanted some fresh opinions. I'm planning ahead for iOS 6 and I'm looking to get a car mount for using the Turn by Turn features. There's so many out there... I don't even know where to start. Here's one I'm looking at:

    Ideally I'd love to find one that fits with my case on it as well, but that's not a must. (Switcheasy TRIM)

    I'd love anyone's 2 cents!

    I just use one of those el cheapo generic ones you can get off ebay or amazon. It works so no complains. If you decide to go that route though try to get one that doesn't have too long of an arm, or else it will just flex.

    ProClip + Panavise. I personally don't trust suction mounts.

    Prior threads are an excellent place to start. Things haven't drastically changed in the world of mounts.

    I'm looking for a mount that will let me mount my phone flush against the surface of my civic's dash like so:


    All the mounts i've seen have it sitting on top of the dashboard like a bobble head, or hanging off the windshield like spiderman. I just want it flush against the dash like its just another control next to the other knobs.

    Any idea?

    Colorado Springs USA for now
    I saw no one suggest the Magellan. It has a built in speaker, built in gps chip to amplify signal and of course charges your i while it's used. Pricier than your average mount but if you wish to specifically purchase an item to use your turn by turn feature it's a very sweet option. It also works with all turn by turn programs. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002WN30IM
