    I just got a Defender case for my Pearl 8130 and needed a car cradle. Anyone know a good car cradle that will work with the Defender case? The phone is now bigger/wider with the case.
    Some cradle look like they will block the side buttons or even activate them.

    When I am in the defender case i use a standard bigger adjustable side cradle and just grip the case at the bottom below the buttons, this worked good for me since I also had my ipod touch under the bberry in teh same cradle and could access the music controls that way. I'll see if I can dig up a picture for ya.

    i was looking at the Extreme pda auto mount with the side grips. I was hoping that the side grips don't interfere with any buttons.

    I use the holster. The clip is quite versatile. Find a spot, (one is my sun visor) clip on the holster and just turn the phone around. It won't slip out and all the buttons are accessible.

    good idea but i need to see the phone while I drive. ( truck driver).
    I want to use the nav prog. and be able to access the buttons at arms reach. I'm contemplating getting a side grip mount but don't know if the buttons will be accessible.
    Getting just the holster part of the Defender that I can mount would be great. I may call the company and see if I can just get that. The phone does stay in the holster backwards pretty good.

    These guys might have what you're looking for.

    You may still be able to utilize your existing holster without having to purchase a second one and alter it.

    Used them for my GPS. They've got various brackets and great dash or goose-neck ideas. I personally dislike vent mounts, but they're also available.
