TomTom Trucker 600 GPS Mounts

The TomTom Trucker 600 is made for truckers.  These compete nicely with the Garmin dezl trucker GPS lineup.  A lifetime traffic and map update subscription bundled with features unique to trucker use.  The TomTom Trucker 600 features customized routes for the vehicle type, size, weight, cargo and speed.  A nice sized 6 inch display makes it easy to see the maps.  The internal battery provides two hours of use without power. The TomTom Trucker 600 is sold primarily in the United States.  I believe it to be similar to the TomTom Trucker 6000 sold in Europe.  I would therefore believe the mount … Read more…

Magellan eXplorist TRX7 Mounts for ATV, UTV and 4x4s

We do not write much about Magellan devices.  No longer the large player they were ten years back, they have a much smaller distribution versus their competition.  The Magellan eXplorist TRX7 was introduced a short time ago to fill an interesting void.  The intended audience of the Magellan eXplorist TRX7 is the off-road crowd.  We’re talking about a 4×4, UTV or ATV vehicle. What makes the Magellan eXplorist TRX7 suited for off-road use?  A few options.  First the device is rated as IP67 which means it’s protected against the effect of water up to one meter deep.  That means it’s weatherproof.  Note the term weatherproof. … Read more…

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Chevy Traverse

Like many SUVs on the market, the Chevy Traverse provides many options for mounting a GPS, phone or tablet.  The Chevy Traverse has a large interior and while there are a few locations that will not work, most places will work out just fine.  Good job Chevy.

Phone and GPS Mounts for a Nissan Rogue

It was time for maintenance on my new Nissan so that gave me some time to check the showroom at the dealership.  I wanted to take a close look at the Nissan Rogue.  It’s one of Nissan’s best sellers and gets great reviews.  The outside looks very similar to my Nissan Murano.  However the interior is more conventional.  Perhaps a little more compact.  Certainly not as many bazaar curves and slopes as the Murano.  That’s good news from a mounting perspective.  Lots of different places will work well in a Nissan Rogue but there were a few mounts and holders that … Read more…

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Nissan Maxima

I recently had a chance to get a close look at the Nissan Maxima.  The Nissan Maxima has a very nice interior.  Lots of good places for a mount but I found a few locations that will not work. As always, a photo of the interior is attached to this article.  It’s a somewhat conventional design.  Having a Nissan Murano myself as my day-to-day vehicle, I was concerned about all the strange curves present in the Murano’s design.  Apparently, the Nissan Maxima designers were more on the normal side.  Not a lot of radical curves or lips. The most popular location for mounting … Read more…

Mounts for Peterbilt Trucks and Rigs

We spend a lot of time talking about phone, GPS and laptop mounts for cars and motorcycles.  Today, we go in the opposite direction and talk about mounts for Peterbilt trucks and rigs. This isn’t as easy as simply using a mount made for a car.  A Peterbilt truck is much larger.  The windshield is further from the driver.  The seats are higher.  Everything is a further reach.  We need to look at larger and heavier duty mounts. There are mounts available to hold almost anything.  From something as small as an Apple iPhone to as large as a full-sized … Read more…
