Phone and GPS Mounts for a Ford Mustang GT

Ford Mustang GT.  Fun to Drive.  Not fun to mount stuff.  While we doubt Ford will change their marketing to this slogan, it sure was hard to find good places to mount anything.  While we are able to recommend a few good mounts for a phone or GPS, you can forget about a tablet.  There is no place to safely mount a tablet in a Ford Mustang. Our usual photo of the interior of the vehicle accompanies this article.  On the initial appearance, you may think there’s plenty of places to mount a phone or GPS but we found that … Read more

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

Mounts for Garmin Dash Cam 45, Dash Cam 55 and Dash Cam 65W

Garmin entered the dash cam market a few years back with the introduction of the NuviCam LMTHD.  Keeping in character with the GPS lineup, Garmin refreshes their line of dash cameras periodically.  Released during the first half of 2017 is the Garmin Dash Cam 45, Dash Cam 55 and Dash Cam 65W.  As expected, all three of these cameras include a mount and charger. First, a quick overview of the cameras. The Garmin Dash Cam 45 introduces a completely different form factor to this year’s camera models.  We’re talking about a 2.1 megapixel camera with 1080p video capture.  It has … Read more

How to Make a Phone Stand When Live Streaming

The title for this article came from someone looking for an answer to this issue:  How do I make my phone stand when live streaming? Had to think about that one then I looked down at my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.  Rounded beveled edges means this phone cannot stand on its side.  Not even with a big thick case.  You need some mount assistance for this feat.  (worth noting is my Apple iPhone 6s Plus in a big Otterbox Defender does indeed stand on its side all by itself) First question to ask is do you really want to make your … Read more

Phone, Tablet and GPS Mounts for a Nissan Pathfinder

Whenever it’s time for maintenance on one of my cars, I give myself some extra time to go through the showroom to check out the cars.  Of course, I’m not just looking at my next car but also how to mount a device.  Today, I had the opportunity to scope out a Nissan Pathfinder. I used to own one of these 20 years ago.  It’s changed a lot.  A Nissan Pathfinder is huge.  Much larger than twenty years ago.  It’s so large that I couldn’t do a head on photo of the dash and capture the entire view.  I had … Read more

Qi Enabled Smartphone Car Mounts and Holders

Samsung continues to be one of the leaders when it comes to smartphone hardware technology.  Qi charging technology is another innovation where Samsung is leading the way.  Having to plug that lightning cable into my Apple iPhone 6s Plus every night is annoying.  The fact that I have an Otterbox Defender case makes it all that much more difficult.  I have great appreciation for this new charging technology.  The technology has been embraced by Samsung and a few other companies.  Sadly, not by Apple. The premise of Qi is pretty simple.  Place your phone on a wireless charging pad and your phone gets … Read more
