Not sure I want to wait for PC to get their act together - has anyone seen a car mount that can handle a Cosmo?

I bought one of https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01D00C...=UTF8&psc=1 for the Gemini, and it handles the Cosmo too.

I'm probably unusual in that I like mine on the right, portrait, keyboard on the right, so I can use Google Maps.  I stick the screen in the holder, and leave the keyboard flapping (not that it flaps, but you know what I mean).  Works well.

Only problem is, on the Cosmo they've disabled the rotation control, and Fn-S-R rotates the wrong way.  Ultimate Rotation Control sorts that.

I live in Canada and my car mount status was listed as "fulfilled" as of January 14th. Can anyone else give me an idea of time in transit that i can expect? I expect it is being sent by surface from Hong Kong.

This one looks a lot like the official one, with some adjustments and a second holder you could make it fit for your car vent or cup holder:

I have bought one of these. There were also suction cup version available.

I had to made small/rough modification, that Holder won't retreat all the way down, just few mm smaller than Cosmo.

Edit: resized attachments.

Was that through the PC store or via Indiegogo?

I originally bought this mount for a 8" Samsung tablet. Then reworked it (bending lower parts with heat...) to suit my Galaxy Note 8. Adjustable width, ugly as hell, but serves well the Cosmo too.

I am very, very happy with the car holder sold by Planet - @ the moment it is used inside, not in the car. But the mounting "foot" (vacuum) works extraordinary well, one can even type while the Cosmo is mounted. LOVE IT!
