Has anybody found a decent car mount for the Gemini?

I'd be interested to know if the Brodit car mounts for the Psion 5 are suitable for use with the Gemini.

Hey, i dont know if the Psion 5 ones fit, but this one works nicely: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Suction-cup...2848080025.html

it even holds the screen very good open.

Thank you for sharing that phone holder.

I wonder how long, how strong its' suction-holding is... particularity on vinyl dashboard tops with an embossed grain or pattern AND under warm, sun exposure while driving?

I've had similar holders pop-off unexpected (while driving) which suddenly causes an unsafe grab-to-save it reaction.

The mount arrived and I'm pleased to report it allows me to hold the Gemini at the perfect screen angle for GPS operation. Will add a photo later.

Dang it.
Recently bought new radio system for car.
NO CD slot.

Thanks for sharing nevertheless.

Hi, I decided to go for a cup holder solution. Fits very tight into my car, almost no shaking at all. However, an air outlet is blocked.



In addition I use an OBDII to micro USB adapter (+USB C adapter) which gives permanent 5V, 1.5A to power the Gemini even if the ingnition lock is off. In my car the OBDII port is located directly below the cup holder.
