Thought Out announces iPhone/Touch car mount

updated 02:25 pm EST, Tue December 2, 2008

PED3 iPhone/iPod car mount

Thought Out has announced the PED3-Auto, a rotating car mount for the iPhone 3G or iPod touch. A five-inch flexible steel neck is used for device positioning, while the holder rotates 360 degrees to change orientation. Owners can also adjust the device-gripping fingers for a customized fit.

The package includes a double-sided adhesive pad that is claimed to stick to any hard plastic surface. A screw-mount is also provided for a more secure hold. The PED3-Auto is priced at $50, and can be purchased directly from the company. A flexible neck extension and a cup holder that attaches to the mount should be available soon.

    Too Expensive

    I've wanted something just like this for a while now... but $50? For just a holder, not even providing electronics or charging? Seriously?

    Cup holder

    I'd emailed them about a cup holder accessory--which is what I really want, and whether there would be any package-deal discount. Their response:

    "The CupHolder is least a month away and there will not be a package cost savings . The Cup Holder will be $16-$25."

    Too bad. $66 to $75 for a cupholder-based Touch mount is way overpriced, IMHO.

    hmm.

    i got something that is functionally identical... though with a suction cup base.

    worked great for a 10,000 mile roadtrip i went on (haven\'t needed it since then really).

    i think it was $15. shipped from HK and they have $1 dock cables and other various widgets too.

    found it. http://www.usbfever.com

    in the bike/car mount section.

    not the best quality in the universe. but like i said... worked great. stayed sunctioned. and i was fiddling/rotating/removing iphone with it daily.

    Know it...

    I had a similar device that I, unfortunately, used as a bike mount. The Touch bounced right out of it.

    I had this device from Belkin
    http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=178179
    back when I had a Mini, and it was perfect--for my needs, at least. Too bad they never came out with a version that will fit the Touch.

    The way my car is set up, I'd need the cupholder variety. The PED3 may be far higher quality than the knockoffs, but I just can't see spending $75 to have my Touch sitting upright.
