I could use some help. I am looking for an automobile safe that I can use when I travel that I can lock up a handgun as well as small valuables such as portable electronics, etc. I would like it to have a security cable to anchor to a seat or trunk.

Sentry Safe has the AS-1 autosafe that seems to have dimensions that would make it flexible but has a key lock (I'd prefer combination lock).

GunVault has their Nano Vault 300 that has a combination lock but seems too small to be flexible for a variety of small portable electronics, as well as for gun security.

Would you have any alternative recommendations?

That's not bad. I did see that one on the Sentry website but I want to keep the combination lock a manual one and not an electronic digital type. I figure I may leave the safe in the trunk for long periods of time without ever checking it and I am afraid that the battery will loose charge and I won't have access when I finally do want to access the contents.

A lot more expensive then the others, but it has the features you are looking for:

I'm a little weary about GunVault. I have 2 of their MV500 models. Since I originally purchased the safes in February 2010,I've had to had them replaced 4-5 times now. Both of them. But in particular the one I use most often next to my bed. Figures,since they are made in China. I'm not trying to S*** on GunVault,but do some research on those safes. I did and found a lot of pissed off people in regards to the MV500 models.

The buttons seem to be the issue.
