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

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

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Ford Edge

The Ford Edge has a very large interior and that normally leads to almost any mount fitting without a problem.  However, due to some unique design attributes, it’s not that simple.  As a result, some mounting locations aren’t going to work well.

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Subaru Outback

In terms of the mounting difficulty scale, the Subaru Outback checks in with a 5 on a scale of one to ten.  Our traditional recommendations work well.  The mounts that are always a little tricky won’t work well.  So, all in all, not a lot of surprises. We always try to include a photo of the interior with vehicle specific articles and we have done so with the Subaru Outback.  It’s a fairly conventional design.  Unlike the curviest SUV on the planet being a Nissan Murano, this is standard stuff.

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Kia Soul

The Kia Soul has a surprisingly roomy front seat interior and it’s a fun car to drive.  While I wish it had more rear cargo space, it works well for two or three people.  However, it doesn’t work so well to mount a phone, GPS or tablet.  There are so many curves and unconventional curves that I had a difficult time finding good places to mount a phone, GPS or tablet. It’s not that the front of the vehicle doesn’t provide enough room for the driver and passenger.  I had plenty of leg room and didn’t feel confined but when … Read more
