Phone and GPS Mounts for a Nissan Rogue

It was time for maintenance on my new Nissan so that gave me some time to check the showroom at the dealership.  I wanted to take a close look at the Nissan Rogue.  It’s one of Nissan’s best sellers and gets great reviews.  The outside looks very similar to my Nissan Murano.  However the interior is more conventional.  Perhaps a little more compact.  Certainly not as many bazaar curves and slopes as the Murano.  That’s good news from a mounting perspective.  Lots of different places will work well in a Nissan Rogue but there were a few mounts and holders that … Read more…

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Nissan Maxima

I recently had a chance to get a close look at the Nissan Maxima.  The Nissan Maxima has a very nice interior.  Lots of good places for a mount but I found a few locations that will not work. As always, a photo of the interior is attached to this article.  It’s a somewhat conventional design.  Having a Nissan Murano myself as my day-to-day vehicle, I was concerned about all the strange curves present in the Murano’s design.  Apparently, the Nissan Maxima designers were more on the normal side.  Not a lot of radical curves or lips. The most popular location for mounting … Read more…

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Mazda CX-5 SUV

This week, I had the opportunity to drive a Mazda CX-5 SUV.  Nice size for an intermediate SUV.  Can’t say I’m a fan of the touch screen interface but there are a lot of good places to mount a phone, GPS or tablet. A photo of the interior of a Mazda CX-5 accompanies this article.  Decent size with the usual long reach to the windshield common to an SUV.  Normal horizontal vents and a long reach down to the cup holders.  So let’s scope out some mount options. The windshield is probably the best place to mount a phone.  My … Read more…

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Toyota 4Runner

I travel a lot and rent all kinds of cars.  Today, the good folks are Budget Car Rental were good enough to upgrade me a Toyota 4Runner.  That means its time for a vehicle specific article on how to mount a cell phone, tablet or GPS in a Toyota 4Rrunner. A photo of the interior of a Toyota 4Runner accompanies this article.  It’s a fairly spacious interior with a fit of a further reach to the windshield.  Nice flat dash but not overly deep which will limit use as a mounting location.  Normal horizontal vents are present.  The cup holder placement is … Read more…

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Vintage Car

We’re going to talk about where to mount a mobile device within a vintage automobile.  I’m sure the designers of any vintage car never dreamed of what we’re using today, let alone mounting it in a car. When you think about almost any vintage car, the typical places where we would like to mount a phone, GPS or tablet start to become difficult to find.  Depending upon when the vintage car was manufactured, there may not be an air vent because there wasn’t any such thing as air conditioning.  A cup holder in a vintage car?  Don’t think so.  CD … Read more…

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for an Acura MDX

Most SUVs are easy to mount a mobile device within and the Acura MDX is a typical SUV.  I owned an Acura MDX for almost eight years and it was a great car.  One of the easier SUVs to mount a cell phone, tablet or GPS.  Lots of space.  Except for perhaps the dash, no unusual curves or bumps.  Lots of different places will work well in an Acura MDX but there were a few mounts and holders that simply won’t work.  Especially on the dashboard. We always try to have a photo of the interior accompany our vehicle specific articles.  A photo of … Read more…
