Car and Home Mounts for the LG G Pad F 8.0 Tablet

The LG G Pad F 8.0 was released in the summer of 2015 (also known as the LGV480).  It’s an economically priced tablet with good performance.  I recently saw these being given away at no charge from a major carrier with a smartphone contract.  Can’t get any cheaper than this. The LG G Pad F 8.0 has an 8″ display similar to an Apple iPad Mini.  A 5MP rear camera and 2MP rear camera makes an adequate entry for video conferencing and photos that don’t require extreme detail.  Running Android 5.0 and sporting a Quad-core, 1200 MHz, ARM Cortex-A7 processor, this tablet … Read more…

How to Install a RAM Motorcycle Handlebar Mount

Look at all those parts!  It might look a little daunting but it’s actually quite easy to install a RAM motorcycle handlebar mount.  This article will walk you through the process. The common components to any RAM motorcycle handlebar mount are the RAM Zinc Coated U-Bolt Mounting Base with 1 inch Ball and the Ram Mount Double Socket Arm.  While there are three different sizes of 1″ ball arms, I have found the standard size to work in most situations.  Typically, but not always, these are purchased as a kit along with a RAM Mounting Diamond.  These components are what is used to … Read more…

Nexus 6P Car and Motorcycle Mounts

The Nexus 6P is a fairly substantial upgrade to the very popular Nexus 6.  Thinner, faster, a little smaller than it’s predecessor, the phone has gotten some excellent press.  The phone runs Android 6 on an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB of RAM.  Excellent front camera specs at 12MP with laser autofocus and dual-LED (dual tone) flash.  The front camera isn’t too shabby coming in at 8MP.  The storage maxes out at 128GB but most will opt for the entry level 32GB which is double what you typically see from Apple these days.  This compares real favorably to the best phones available from Samsung, … Read more…

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for Motorola Droid Turbo 2

The Motorola Droid Turbo 2 was introduced in late 2015 and is the second generation in the Droid Turbo series first introduced one year earlier. The Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is the phone for those that continuously have the unlucky trait of breaking their phone screens.  This phone has a tough AMOLED 5.4″ touchscreen that is made to be one of the most rugged around.  Does it mean that you won’t need a good case or skin?  Probably not, but it’s nice to have the added protection of a well made phone to supplement a good case. So if we are going to discuss … Read more…

Car Sunroof Mounts for Smartphones and Tablets

Just when I thought we covered every possible mounting location for a phone or tablet, along comes one that we missed.  Today, we discuss car sunroof mounts for smartphones and tablets. So why would one want to mount their device on the sunroof?  To entertain the backseat passengers.  In the past, I have always recommended a good car headrest mount for this purpose.  Seemed like a great location for a tablet.  Even chose my favorite car headrest mount which we discussed in this article.  Then today, someone mentioned the sunroof to me.  I really never thought of that before, but … Read more…

Mounts for Garmin Dash Cam 20 and Dash Cam 10

Garmin made a decision a few years ago to enter the camera market.  I suppose the popularity of the GoPro had something to do with it.  Combine it with the decline of the personal navigation device due to applications like Waze and Garmin needed to find other ways to keep Wall Street happy.  The quality dash cam market is a good idea as there aren’t many high quality ones available.  The Dash Cam 10 and Dash Cam 20 represent Garmin’s entry into this market.  They then followed this up with the NuviCam which we wrote about here.  The difference between the … Read more…

BlackBerry Priv Car and Motorcycle Mounts

I think this might be my first article on a Blackberry phone.  The constant complaint from seasoned Blackberry owners has been the absence of a traditional keyboard from smartphones.  The Blackberry Priv is the phone that Blackberry owners were waiting for.  It has a pull out keyboard which slides out from the bottom of the phone.  The Blackberry Priv features Google’s Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.  Sporting a 5.4″ diagonal display and a feature shared with the popular Apple iPhone lineup, a finger scanner, this is a great phone for Android fans.  The camera is top of the line and features a 18 MP lens. … Read more…

Sirius XM Radio Car Dash Mounts

When Sirius and XM Radio was first introduced over ten years ago, the default mounting location was the windshield.  Why?  Because that is what was included with the radio when it was purchased.  Seemed to make sense as the radio received signals from a satellite and the radio could see it if in the windshield.  Never mind it was really the antenna that received the signal.  Windshields and satellite radio just seemed to go well together.  Today there are a lot of other locations and one of the most popular is the dash.  Now let’s discuss the topic of Sirius XM … Read more…
