    Default Looking for iPhone 4 Cradle Suggestions

    Well, since my iPhone 4 will not fit in any of the supplied adaptors that came with my Griffin TuneFlex Aux cradle (which I bought for my iPhone 3G), I am in the market for a new cradle that accepts the iPhone 4. I don't want to use a suction cup mount (will eventually fall off at some point) and don't want to drill any holes in the dash for a fixed mount. And I would like it up near the dash so I can conveniently manipulate the iPhone.

    One idea is to use a handlebar mount like the one below and install it on the vertical windshield support pole. Has anyone gone this route and if so, how is it working out, and which mount did you get?

    Thanks,

    Al

    I'm sure it will easily work...just have to insert a rubber type ring/grommet inside the clamp part that will hold the vertical bar. I have some spare rubber inserts that came with my tower mirror that you could probably cut to fit inside the clamp. Let me know and I can mail you a couple

    I use an adjustible width scoche brand that you can get at walmart. I didn't use the flexible arm or the suction cup, just the cradle only. It's adhered it to the fiberglass left of the ignition using 3M command strips.

    Al is that the one they have at the Apple store at the mall? I was there yesterday and saw a new one for the I-4.

    Claudias phone locked up and went into recovery and she thought it was toast and was pushing me to buy a new I-4 so she could have my 3GS lol.

    It must be somewhat different because mine works great with an iphone 4.

    Mike,

    It's not from the Apple store, I just saw it online somewhere, from Amazon I think. I ended up buying a similar one from eBay. We'll see how it works.

    Brain,

    I do have a similar set up as you now, in the same location, as Mike said. But mine does not secure the iPhone (or any other device for that matter) very well at all and I would like it a little higher up on the dash so I can change songs, etc, while driving.
