Car Headrest Mounts for Tablets, Phones and Cameras

Car headrests were first mandated to be installed in vehicles back in the 1960’s.  Headrests haven’t changed a lot since that time.  They are typically supported by a post on each side of the headrest.  These posts make an ideal mount point for tablets, phones and cameras.  Car headrest mounts are especially useful for keeping backseat passengers entertained with your tablet.  The posts to the headrest are typically the place where you would attach the mount.  The headrest is also a great place to mount a camera for taking video of the views in front or behind the car.  Let’s review … Read more

Car Air Vent Mounts

The air vent is one of my favorite mounting locations.  I like it because it keeps the device right where it’s convenient for you to see it.  I also like the fact that it keeps your device out of clear site of any potential bad guys.  Car air vent mounts are not clearly seen in a parking lot versus a traditional windshield suction cup mount or one for the dash.  Most dash mounts are easy to install.  Depending upon the vent mount, some are easy to remove (and some are not). Car air vent mounts are excellent for mounting a cell phone, … Read more

Choosing the Right Cell Phone Motorcycle Mount

I have walked around motorcycle rallies to check out (what else) mounts.  It’s amazing to see what people attach to their bikes and how they do it.  We see a lot of different mounts on motorcycles.  Amazingly, we also see iPhones attached with Velcro and twist ties.  That’s right, twist ties.  I often wonder how many phones wind up in the middle on interstate 80 when the twist ties give out.  There’s a good chance your phone sells for over $500.  Invest a little money to make sure you don’t lose it on your ride.  This article will discuss what you … Read more

Car Cup Holder Mounts

It still amazes me how many cup holders exist in today’s cars. I have an SUV. There are two in the front middle, one in each of the four doors, two more embedded into the rear seat armrest and another two in the back where I have a third seat that we used once just to see what it felt like to sit in it. That’s ten cup holders. Who drinks that much water? Using one (or more) to mount your phone, tablet, satellite radio or GPS seems like the logical thing to do. A cup holder mount typically consists … Read more

Arkon CM012 Friction Dashboard Mount Product Review

The Arkon Friction Dashboard Mount weighs in at roughly 1.5 pounds, is black in color and measures 8 x 7 inches.  These mounts are made to work in conjunction with your suction cup mount. The photo to the left features the Arkon friction mount with a suction cup attached that has a cradle for a Garmin Nuvi 200.  When you purchase the Arkon mount, the suction cup mount is not included, that was added by me for the photo. The mount features an attached 80mm smooth round plastic plate which is a bit larger than the diameter of most suction cup mounts. … Read more

Garmin Bean Bag Mount Product Review

The most popular mount for a Garmin Nuvi GPS is the Garmin Portable Friction Mount.  The mount is manufactured by Garmin and is an extraordinarily popular mount.  They officially refer to it as the portable friction mount but I still call it the Garmin bean bag mount.  It has been available since the days of the first Garmin Nuvi which ironically is the model shown in the photo that accompanies this review. The Garmin bean bag mount weighs 1.5 pounds.  The bottom of the mount features a rubber coated base which is designed to stay put in most normal driving … Read more
