DIY Palm Touchstone car mount

This has to be the coolest car mount for any mobile device out there. Originally designed for home use, maker remington870_20ga from the everythingpre.com forums wired a stock Palm Touchstone Charging Dock to run directly off his car battery using off-the-shelf components. Not only do you get an unencumbered view of the screen, your mobile device gets a chance to charge itself without all the messy cables.

  1. I did this in my Expedition. It rocks! I have it connect to my bluetooth for true handsfree operation. You wouldn’t believe the bumps you would have to go over to get it to come off. Best of all, you don’t have to mess with any cables. Touchstone in cars are a major +1

  2. The car mount is the coolest one to use and we can place our iPads or smartphones. It can hold your iPads and you can place it on the car moon-roof and provide entertainment for your kids on a long road trip. Further, we can use this in the house also.
