Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Mazda Miata

I have a friend with a Mazda Miata and while I can’t possibly fit in it, she seems to like it a lot.  The Mazda Miata is a small convertible that (in my opinion) is better suited for people other than really tall or really wide.  It has a small interior.  Not an easy car to mount a phone, GPS or tablet within.

So why do you need a smartphone tripod mount?  A lot of good reasons.  My favorite is for FaceTime or video conferencing.  Ever do FaceTime with someone while they hold their phone … Read more…

Car Air Vent Mounts

The air vent is one of my favorite mounting locations.  I like it because it keeps the device right where it’s convenient for you to see it.  I also like the fact that it keeps your device out of clear site of any potential bad guys.  A vent mount is not clearly seen in a parking lot versus the traditional windshield suction cup mount or one for the dash.  Most dash mounts are easy to install.  Depending upon the vent mount, some are easy to remove (and some are not). Vent mounts are excellent for mounting a cell phone, GPS or … Read more…
