Hands On: OSOMount Arc 2 in 1 car mount

09/13, 4:29pm

For when you can't stick a GPS on your windshield

Usually the best car mounts for holding your iPhone up as you drive along, shouting at either Google or Apple Maps, are ones that stick firm to your windshield. Not every state allows that, though, and not every driver likes it anyway, so there are alternatives -- and the OSOMount Arc 2 Extendable Arm and Dash Mount Holder is one of them.


Hands On: Vent Luxe iPhone car mount

09/04, 10:20am

Clever little car mount for iPhones

Not everyone likes having their car windscreen blocked by a big iPhone 6 Plus and in many states they can like it all they want, they're still not allowed to do it. Plus, we don't all have cars, some of us hire one only when we need it. For each of us, a full-blown car mount for our iPhones is overkill and instead the Vent Luxe is a contender. It's an iPhone car mount that you wedge onto the slats of your air conditioning vents.


Hands On: Montar Universal Car Mount

05/18, 4:14pm

Strong, easy to fit windshield mount for iPhone

Don't get us started on which States let you use a windshield-mounted GPS: it's so complicated, it changes, and anyway by the time we'd listed all the conditions, our UK colleagues will have driven wherever they're going. For the US, we can wait with crossed fingers for a heads-up laser display projected onto the glass. Until then, we're going to argue that having your iPhone mounted up where you can see it is safer than an in-dashboard system you have to keep taking your eyes off the road to see. More, we're going to recommend you use the Montar Universal Car Mount wherever it is safe and legal to do so.

Bracketron announces tablet-friendly in-car mounts

Bracketron has added two more mounts to its range of mobile device holders. The Mi-T Grip Dash Mount attaches to a dashboard or any hard surface using suction, and provides a low-profile way of holding an iPad mini or small tablet in a vehicle. A more-conventional Universal Tablet Window Mount performs the same task, but has a reinforced articulating arm and 360-degree rotating head for precise positioning from a glass surface. Prices and a release date have yet to be revealed, but are likely to be around $30 each, based on previous releases.

iPhone user crafts recycled car holder

05/15, 6:35pm

Recycled iPhone car holder

iPhone enthusiast Bernat Alsina decided to construct an iPhone Car Mounting Bracket using a couple household items, giving him the ability to mount his iPhone or iPod Touch right on the dashboard of the car for easy access while driving. In seven somewhat simple steps Bernat takes a hodgepodge of plastic, velcro, and glue and turns it into something useful. This is not an idea that has never been seen before but the simplicity of the creator's Spanish/broken English step-by-step walkthrough and the low cost factor (recyclable materials) helps his mounting kit to stand out.
