Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Moto Z Smartphone

The Moto Z was introduced in June of 2016 and has become fairly popular among Android fans.  Motorola has launched several variations of the Moto Z including the Moto Z Play and Moto Z Force.  The sizes of these models are similar and our mount recommendations will work on all three models. With a large 5.5 inch diagonal screen, the Moto Z measures 6.04 x 2.96 x 0.20 in inches (153.3 x 75.3 x 5.2 mm) and weighs in at 4.8 ounces which is remarkably light.  These are the measurements to keep in mind when selecting a mount.  I’m not aware of any … Read more…

Mounts for a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic Motorcycle

I recently took a look at a  Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic motorcycle while visiting my local Harley showroom here in New Jersey.  I should have taken a photo of the two-up seat because that’s as close to a living room as I have seen on a motorcycle. The photo that accompanies this article is of a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic cockpit.  There are two excellent locations for mounting a device in the handlebar and clutch.  That’s typical for many Harley models.  While I suppose we could also go with a gas tank mount, I think it would look awkward so … Read more…

Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus Car and Motorcycle Mounts

The Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus are now available.  That means it’s time for our semi-annual article on mounts to fit the latest and greatest iPhone model. The most notable change, and it’s one that I’m  not a fan of is the elimination of the 3.5 mm headphone jack.  Sure, you can use a Bluetooth headset, but some would prefer not to.  While Apple provides a 3.5 mm to Lightning port adapter, that eliminates the ability to use a headphone jack and charge it at the same time.  I guess this makes it easier to mount the … Read more…

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Motorola Moto Z

The Motorola Moto Z also known as the Motorola Moto Z Droid in the US is the company’s latest entry in the lucrative high-end smartphone lineup. The size specifications are average for the smartphone universe.  With a 5.5″ AMOLED touchscreen, 16M colors display using Gorilla Glass 4 this phone is 6.04 x 2.96 x 0.20 inches (very thin isn’t it).  These are important measurements to keep in mind when selecting your mount.  For those with a mount from an older phone, you may find the Motorola Moto Z will fit fine.  Most universal mounts offer options to upgrade your cradle to … Read more…

Mounts for a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy Motorcycle

I was recently walking around a Harley showroom and stumbled upon a brand new Harley-Davidson Fat Boy.  So, here’s our article about phone, GPS and camera mounts and holders for a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy motorcycle. The photo that accompanies this article is of a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy cockpit.  You can see there are a lot of different places to mount a cell phone, GPS, camera or satellite radio.  The handlebar is an obvious choice.  So is the clutch and brake reservoir.  There are a few other secondary locations to try but I think these two are the easiest to install and will … Read more…
