mounting accessories

is there anywhere in Canada that has various mounting accessories - vehicle specific brackets etc? I have seen quite a few in the US (online)

Am I getting new Sony?

Many Best Buy's offer the "Bracketron" brand which is verhicle specific and are great as there is no drilling! You use exisiting screws from the head unit to support the bracket. Unfortunately they are currently a little tougher to find and fly off the shelves...be sure to speak to the Car audio install guys as they know the most about them at this point.

As mentioned by Ilyo, the Bracketron series of custom mounts work well. I've just installed one in my Jeep Grand Cherokee, and am pleased with the outcome.

The Bracketron gear can be found here:

The Canadian distributor for them is Staub Electronics:

Staub will not sell to you directly, but you can send them an email asking for a list of local retailers. If you have trouble sourcing it locally, you can contact Rick Schumacker at Aero Car Parts in Edmonton. He doesn't stock the parts, but was able to get next day delivery on the items I ordered. His full contact info is as follows:

As a follow-up..Best Buy seems to only be getting in the generic bracketron mounting kit. It is a great kit that features mounting options for Ipod, cell phone, PDA and sat radio...but unfortunately is not as car specific...
