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.
