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.
OpenPandora, Jolla C, BQ M10 fHD (ubports), MacBook Pro Retina (mid-2012), Zaurus SL-5500, OpenMoko Freerunner, Geeksphone Keon (ffOS 2.x), a few Raspberries, too many game consoles and Android devices,...

... and soon: Dragonbox Pyra, Librem 5

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.

Will report back with my findings when it arrives!

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.

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.

[div align=\"center\"][img]https://picload.org/thumbnail/dcadclgl/img_20181023_193705_697.jpg\" border=\"0\" class=\"linked-image\" /] [img]https://picload.org/thumbnail/dcadclga/img_20181023_193713_692.jpg\" border=\"0\" class=\"linked-image\" /][/div]

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.
