Mount for Galaxy 3?

Anyone have a reliable mount device and location for their cell phone? I prefer Google maps to BMW's lame navigation.

I use a Ram Mount with an X-Grip. It's the best product I've seen for this application. Ram makes all the police radio and laptop mounts so they're stuff is battle tested and works well.

Mein Auto: 2009 BMW 328xi Coupe
I bought one of these:http://www.proclipusa.com
A little pricey, but worth it to me. Two part system consisting of a base plate that just clips to the trim on the dash and a swivel mount for the phone that connects to the plate. Simple install. I also have the S3

I must be dense - I need pictures

It looks like several folks have worked this out. But I would appreciate a picture to see how looks and works in the cockpit.

I use the suction cup base stuck to the windshield to the right of the rear view mirror, just in front of the passenger side sun visor. It puts the phone just to the right of the rear view mirror and out of my direct line of sight. Here is a shot of it:

This Guy makes a good solution that inserts into the cd player and presents a 1" ball mount suitable for most gps or x-grip style mounts.
