    Looking for an arm mount system

    I'm looking forward to getting a 7 or 8 inch lilliput. I was driving around today though and was having problems figuring out where to mount it.

    95' accord stick


    I was going to mount it so it hangs out over the heat ducts there, but realized it would get a bit too hot.
    I can't mount it over to the right too much because it cant hinder the deployment of the passenger airbag.
    i was thinking about maybe mounting on the side of the center dash next to the passengers legs, but for this i'd need some kind of mount with an arm. I was already interested in something like this because it alows me to use it closer to my face while parked, or move it around if in the way, or position it right in front of the passenger to entertain them.

    I would also have to be able to detatch the display from it without too much hastle for obvious security reasons.

    I'd like to keep it under 50USD, preferabley in the 20-30 range.

    Anyone have something like this?

    Anouther though is that with an arm it might bouce around a bit while driving, so it would have to have adjustable joints that can be tightened and hold well.

    I am aware of the in dash option. I do have a 1din slot open. at the moment though, this is too expensive/too much work.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated, even completely new ideas.

    very cool.
    I'm curious as to how well it holds while cornering and bouncing.
    I hate to crossthread, but i'm going to post over there too.

    i bought a mount a Radio Shack. It was meant for a cell phone. I cannot find it online at there store.
    But its about a foot long and has a pretty strong bendable "arm".
    It has a very strong suction cup that is almost impossible to pull off or u can set it in a cup holder.
    I modified my lilliput mount onto the end of it.
    It works pretty good, but bounces just a lil. Which i could easily fix with some kind of support.

    i paid around 20 bucks for it.

    To be honest w/ ya though that dashboard is screaming to just install the LCD screen in the din slot!!! You should seriously think about investing some cash to get that flush!!
