I like the Lido LM-300 mount for a HT but I'm having a hard time getting the "side gripper" HT mount with the LM-300 base. Lido doesn't seem to like to answer phone calls or return phone calls for ordering and the parts they said are available in their return email aren't available thru their web site.
So......does anyone know of any other company that offers similar products for mounting an HT in the car?
I don't want to drill holes in my dash or take out the passenger air bag and glove box for a FT 950 install, hi,hi. I know if I was a true hard nose ham I'd do it.
Thanks,
Bob

I don't drill, I use RTV.  It sticks incredibly well, but is easily sheared when the time comes to removed it.  Placement of your mount is critical so it doesn't become a projectile in the event of an airbag deployment.  The inflation area is often much larger than you think.

That's been an ongoing issue with Lido mounts. I'm not sure how big they are, but I keep getting the impression they're a small, one man organization. At least their customer service is!

Most of their mounts will not properly support remote heads, even a 706 (about 1 pound). Handhelds are out of the question!

You might want to visit my web site, and look under Radio Mounts. There are about 5 or 6 links to the various makers of these devices.

I placed an online order late last night.

This morning, I received shipping confirmation and a tracking number.

That's purty darn kwik.

I received the LIDO cup holder mount. They charged me also for the gooseneck mount which I ordered but they never shipped it. Screw me once, shame on you.
.
I tried the LIDO cup mount. Pretty shoddy construction. It rattled and bounced around, so I tossed it.
.
I then tried the "Ram-A-Can II" cup mount from RAM. (RAM Part number RAP-299-2U). Now THAT'S a cup mount! Liked it so well, I bought two. One with a cradle to hold my NUVI 350, the other to hold the control head of my 857D. Secure and solid would be the operative words.
