    I am looking for a windsheild holder that supports the iPhone 4 WITH a case on (the Speck Pixelskin HD that I got for free from Apple). My price range is up to $50.

    I need it to be able to rotate from landscape/portrait easily, since I will be using the GPS often.

    Lastly, both iPhone ports need to be accessible, since I will be charging it while it is mounted, as well as listening to music via the jack cable.

    I did a search on the forum but didn't find anything that fit those specifications.

    Thanks everyone!

    I would love this too. Anyone?

    I was checking out eBay (has over a thousand of them!), and I've yet to find one that says "fits with a case on too!".. It's starting to look very doubtful..

    Has anyone seen or does anyone have a windshield mount that can support an iPhone 4 with a case on?

    I've got this one and love it. Now, I've got the 3GS with an Otterbox Commuter and it works perfectly. But my girlfriend has the iP4 with a Speck Candyshell and it also works perfectly with that.

    The arms on either side of the phone are spring-loaded, so your phone just clips into it. the top and bottom are completely open, so none of your ports or speaker/mic will be blocked. And that suction cup isn't going me on that.

    If you check around, you can find it for less than $20. I think I got mine from, IIRC.

    Thank you, my dearest KentuckyHouse (mind if I call you KFC? :p )

    I watched the video on their website, the only concern I have is, the phone looks a little loose.. I'd be scared of it falling when I drive over a speed bump, etc. How's it holding up for you?

    Other than that, it looks perfect.. Satisfies all the conditions i was looking for!

    Also, i took a quick look online (ebay, amazon, google), and the cheapest I could find it shipped to canada was $50 from ebay..).. Any other ideas/suggestions where I should look? Would bestbuy have it?

    Actually, I had the same worry about it slipping out, but fear hasn't been a problem at all. The insides of the arms have a small rubber insert that helps hold the phone and the arms exert a good amount of pressure on the sides of the case/phone, so I'm certain it isn't going to slip out. I've gone over a bunch of rough patches in the road and the phone doesn't move in the slightest.

    I will say it might work better for the 3GS than the 4 only because the arms are rounded out (the square iP4 or iP4 case may not fit in there as well...but it DOES fit).

    As far as price goes, here's where I got mine...$22.03 shipped!

    Is that the exact model that you bought? The two links don't match up, the first (which explicitly mentioned iphone 4) one had model # K39256US, the one has K39210US, and it does not mention the iPhone 4 at all.

    Just checking :)

    I'm currently using Haven't really noticed any benefit from the "voice amplification" feature, but it keeps the iphone where it should go and works with a case.

    Universal Windscreen Holder for the iPhone 4

    May be one of these universal holder could be suitable. I bought a bike mount from this site, these are European made and quality is second to none.
