Zune/IPOD users help

Hey guys I am looking for some help. I got a 30 GB Zune for Christmas and I love it. I am looking for some help with a mounting bracket for in my truck. I really want a mount that I can put on the cup holder in my truck I have the bench seat and my truck is a 2007. What I am looking for is a Ram mount (actual company) with a Universal holder on it for a MP3 player or a cell phone. Also if anyone has pictures of how they mounted an MP3 player in their truck please post pictures. Vent mounting is not a option because of how heavy the 30 GB Zune is and I don't like attaching things to my vents.

Any help is good thanks.

There are cup shaped things with foam in them in them that fit perfectly in a cup holder. You can get 'em at Target. My Zune will go between my leg and my Expo console.

Yeah mine kind of rests in the cup holder right now a 30GB zune takes up the cup holder nicely. I want something more secure so if I am switching songs or something I don't have to hold it and look at it plus be within reach to do said objective...

Bigwill41 do the holders for IPOD/Zune attach to the metal bracket with screws or how are they held on?

So you don't have to reach all that way to press a button or turn a ****, I mean that's along way, you can't be doing all that reaching while driving. I also use mine when I am outside of my truck and listening to the radio so I don't have to get in to adjust it.
