    Where to get the best Gooseneck mount?

    I am ready to invest in a gooseneck mount, but after doing some searching here, I realized that there are some out there that have some issues with bouncing when being touched or driving highway speeds. Is there a certain manufacture I should stick with? What would the recommended length be for a passenger car (only have cupholders in between the 2 seats, same height as the seats themselves). I was thinking about buying a 22", but not sure if those are strong enough. How well do they bolt up to the Xenarc screens? Thanks!

    PS: some pictures of where and how the gooseneck mounts would be appreciated, I had trouble locating some nice examples.

    I saw those pictures before I posted here (they were the only nice ones I could find), but I don't see any pictures of where it mounts to the seat (I want to make sure I have enough clearance). Where did you get the mount for the LCD screen itself, or did that come with the liliput?

    It bolts to the standard seat rail/track in your car. I dont remember where i got it, you'll have to search, sorry.

    As for the mount on top, i took that off a camera tripod and attached it to the top of the gooseneck.

    Did you have any issues with vibrations or the screen bouncing around?

    Under normal driving conditions... not too much at all. But going over speed bumps and bad roads.. I would always worry about the screen falling off. I would hold the top of the monitor for a few seonds! - It got a little annoying when going through a rough patch. But its not likely the monitor would fall, it was just a precaution.
