Phone and GPS Mounts for a Ford Mustang GT

Ford Mustang GT.  Fun to Drive.  Not fun to mount stuff.  While we doubt Ford will change their marketing to this slogan, it sure was hard to find good places to mount anything.  While we are able to recommend a few good mounts for a phone or GPS, you can forget about a tablet.  There is no place to safely mount a tablet in a Ford Mustang. Our usual photo of the interior of the vehicle accompanies this article.  On the initial appearance, you may think there’s plenty of places to mount a phone or GPS but we found that … Read more

Car and Home Mounts for the Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch was released on March 2, 2017.  It’s Nintendo’s seventh home video game console.  Compact in size with the mobile market in mind, the Switch sports a 6.2 inch screen. The Nintendo Switch is a smaller device which means mounting it in a car or anywhere at home can be accomplished with some of the mounts we’ll discuss.  First, we need to look at the all important dimensions and weight.  For mounting purposes, the Nintendo Switch will likely be used without the Joy-Con controller attached as you will need that in your hand to interact with the device.

Phone, Tablet and GPS Mounts for a GMC Terrain

Figuring the GMC Terrain would be an easy vehicle for mounting devices was a mistake.  Turns out that a few of our go-to locations aren’t going to work well in this vehicle. Our typical interior cockpit view of a GMC Terrain accompanies this article.  The first thing you may notice are large vertical vents.  Those familiar with our site know we aren’t fans of the north/south vent varieties, much preferring the horizontal east/west style. Next, there is no CD player.  This is becoming a common trend in new vehicles.  We have seen this in several other recent car model specific … Read more

How to Get Free Home Phone Service

Phone and GPS Mounts for a Mini Cooper

The interior of a Mini Cooper has so many bazaar shapes and curves.  Not an easy car to mount a phone or GPS within.  Forget about a tablet, there is no place to fit that device.  it almost like the car designer had a goal of disabling the use of a car mount. Reminds one of a Mazda Miata.  The vents are small and round with narrow slats, there aren’t any useful cup holders and it’s too small of a car for a seat bolt mount.  Same problems as the Miata. A photo of the Mini Cooper interior is attached.  It … Read more
