Great Cost For The Quality - Universal Cell Phone Car Mount Review

By Allison Morris

I have tried several but the clips were never long enough to reach all the way through to the back of the vane. This worked perfectly.

It holds the phone nice and tight and the clips fit perfectly in my RAV4 vents. For me, this was a great purchase. I use it with my phone as both a GPS and other times I use it to play my music. I am 100% satisfied with this mount. I have a Seido case on the Droid X and it still fits perfect. The USB charging port stays open and the mount is adjustable to many different configurations. However, I wish they would put more engineering into the vent holder. Does not fit well in my vehicle and adjust-ability is not that great. I haven't used the A/C mount so I can't report on that. I've bought cell phone mounts before and they all turned out to be junk.

The vent also has to point right AT the mount, not to the sides, so DO NOT run your heat through that vent with a phone mounted in the cradle. Once you mount this, you cannot control the angle of the vents.

First generation Droid is a different size than my X, so beware. However with this product you don't have to worry about sizes since it is adjustable and well cushioned.

It was a little bulky. I did not try the sticky dash mount, or the seemingly flimsy vent mount. Also, the grip is easily detached from the mounts and reattaches with little trouble just in case you do need to switch between mounts. It's definitely a good product to consider if you are considering using your smartphone for GPS instead of your standard GPS devices.

I've contemplated switching to the window mount, but honestly, the vent mount suffices to stay out of my field of view and within reach if I need to adjust GPS without pulling the phone off the window. The cushions on the feet and arms are starting to show signs of continued compression, but I'm not particularly concerned yet. I've only been using this for a day but it seems very secure. I honestly feel that I won't have trouble with the mount dropping my phone, and the only thing I'm wondering about long-term is how well the suction cup holds using the sticky pad.

Both are installed via the air vent attachment, though the windshield suction works great as well. Stop shopping around. I really like the design idea, but I do not like the material, it is hard plastic, very easy to break, or get melted under high heat from direct sun. Works really well, holds my Epic phone without fail.

The holder can adjust the size so it will work for most smartphones. There are a plenty of room on both the top and the bottom for cables.
