    I regret not getting package 3 or up. Now I'm in the middle of getting a Kenwood GPS receiver. Still have to find a way to mount my HTC phone and the Garmin portable unit to my dash.

    Here's my setup. it's only foam double sided tape =)

    Looking really good! Flo-Rida and Lady Gaga. Nice! I need to buy a phone mount like that. Mine in the cup holder is kinda getting annoying.

    I was playing Celin Dion and Kenny G... but I skip them before I took these pictures. hehe

    That mount is made for iphone. however, any phone that has a similar dimension will work. Mine is the HTC MyTouch 4G. It's cool that I can rotate orientation easily.

    Dough! Sorry, I should have read more carefully. I like the idea - but I have my phone hooked up with an AUX cable for music. I don't like the fact of having a cable running from the dash to all the way back to the middle of the passenger and driver seat. I could get a really long one, and tuck it away - but I'm not sure if I wanna do that.

    Same for me here. I wasn't sure if I want to have wire all running around. But what I did is to hide an audio cable around the console under the dash. The cable is there but not noticeable. =)

    Hey everyone- trying to figure out the same thing- a good way to hookup my MyTouch4g to the AUx and tuck away the cable. Anyone got ideas or pics? I found a decent mount- but not sure I want to stick it with the tape to the dash. Will it eventually come off if I want it to? Afraid of taping anything down- but I guess the dash is plastic so it should work? And then like I said- how to get not only the Aux all the way to the drivers side dash but also the power? Any god ways of clamping wires down?
