Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Service Van

A service van such as the one that is in the photo has some unique physical characteristics.  I suppose they’re all different but the ones I have been inside have a small hood and for reasons I still can’t figure out, the drivers always seem to following the guy in front of them too closely.  Maybe they were just messing with me, but I had to ask they make special accommodations to keep me from jumping out of the van. We’re not talking about a mini van today.  We’re talking about a service van.  This is a full size van.  The … Read more

How to Make a Phone Stand When Live Streaming

The title for this article came from someone looking for an answer to this issue:  How do I make my phone stand when live streaming? Had to think about that one then I looked down at my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.  Rounded beveled edges means this phone cannot stand on its side.  Not even with a big thick case.  You need some mount assistance for this feat.  (worth noting is my Apple iPhone 6s Plus in a big Otterbox Defender does indeed stand on its side all by itself) First question to ask is do you really want to make your … Read more

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Nissan Sentra

A recent oil change pilgrimage to my local Nissan dealer left some time to check out the showroom.  One of the cars I was able to get a close look at was the Nissan Sentra.  Like practically any model, there are some places that work well for mounting a device and a few that don’t work too well. As always, a photo of the interior is attached to this article.  There are a few interesting design characteristics.  This is the first car I have seen where the vents are concave.  That’s right, they turn inwards. On a smaller car, the windshield … Read more

Phone, Tablet and GPS Mounts for a Nissan Pathfinder

Whenever it’s time for maintenance on one of my cars, I give myself some extra time to go through the showroom to check out the cars.  Of course, I’m not just looking at my next car but also how to mount a device.  Today, I had the opportunity to scope out a Nissan Pathfinder. I used to own one of these 20 years ago.  It’s changed a lot.  A Nissan Pathfinder is huge.  Much larger than twenty years ago.  It’s so large that I couldn’t do a head on photo of the dash and capture the entire view.  I had … Read more

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Jeep Wrangler

Jeep Wrangler.  Rugged.  Drives through anything.  People that have them usually love them.  But when it comes to mounts, this is a bit of a challenge. I guess that comes as no surprise.  Previous experiences with the Jeep Renegade and Jeep Compass have shown that finding good mount spots in Jeeps aren’t easy.  Several of the traditional and favorite spots for mounting a smartphone, GPS or tablet aren’t going to work well in a Jeep Wrangler.  Interestingly enough, we did find a some mounts that aren’t available in other Jeep models. First let get places that won’t work out of … Read more

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Huawei Mate 9

This is the first article on our site about a phone from Huawei and it’s a fairly impressive one at that.  The Huawei Mate 9 was introduced by the company in September 2016. Very impressive specs that rival (and surpass) some of the best out there.  An impressive 20 MP rear camera and 8 MP front camera with 64GB of memory.  That’s impressive for the price. To get ready for the mount discussion, lets check the dimensions of the phone.  The Huawei Mate 9 sports a 5.9 inch diagonal display so it’s a bit larger than most smartphones.  The Huawei Mate … Read more
