The Motorola Moto Z also known as the Motorola Moto Z Droid in the US is the company’s latest entry in the lucrative high-end smartphone lineup. The size specifications are average for the smartphone universe.  With a 5.5″ AMOLED touchscreen, 16M colors display using Gorilla Glass 4 this phone is 6.04 x 2.96 x 0.20 inches (very thin isn’t it).  These are important measurements to keep in mind when selecting your mount.  For those with a mount from an older phone, you may find the Motorola Moto Z will fit fine.  Most universal mounts offer options to upgrade your cradle to … Read more…

Motorcycle and Car Mounts for Garmin Nuvi 2455LMT, 2455LT, 2475LT and 2495LMT GPS

This line of GPS models was introduced by Garmin in 2011.  These units are still in use several years later and we’re finding the GPS is outlasting the mounts, hence our article about mounting options for this series of popular devices.  All of these GPS models have a subscription to traffic alerts and two have a lifetime map subscription.  Devices like the Garmin Nuvi 2455LMT with an LMT or LM after the number have a lifetime map subscription and those that have an LT or LMT have a lifetime traffic subscription.

Garmin Nuvi 2595LMT, 2595LT and 2595LM Motorcycle and Car Mounts

This line of GPS models was introduced by Garmin in 2012.  The 2595 line of devices were introduced as an update to Garmin’s extremely successful 2555 lineup.  The difference between the two is that the 2595 has Bluetooth and voice recognition.  Nice features that result on the driver not having to manually interface with the GPS.  Devices like the Garmin Nuvi 2595LMT with an LMT or LM after the number have a lifetime map subscription and those that have an LT or LMT have a lifetime traffic subscription.  As far as I can tell though, only the 2595LMT was available in … Read more…

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Samsung Galaxy S5

Speaking of cases or skins, buy a case for your Samsung … Read more…
