Arkon Mega Grip Cradle and Mounts Still One of My Favorites

The Arkon Mega Grip cradle has been around for many years.  It remains one of my favorites and in fact, this is one of the mounts that I use regularly for my Apple iPhone 6s Plus. There’s a lot top like about this holder.  Unlike most expandable cradles, this opens with a button on the side.  It’s one of the few cradles that can be operated with one hand.  Press the button and the arms on both sides snap open.  The cradle is well made and can be easily closed around the device by simply pressing the sides against the … Read more…

Police Scanner Car Mounts and Holders

A police scanner is used to catch the action from local police departments.  Several years ago, these were fairly inexpensive because none of the transmissions were scrambled.  Today, it’s a bit different as many local frequencies are scrambled and require a more expensive police scanner to decode the scrambling.

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Apple iPhone SE

Well I certainly didn’t expect Apple to go backwards in size.  That’s exactly what happened with the Apple iPhone SE.  Such an interesting direction.  Apple stuffed some of the same specs such as the processor and RAM that’s found in the iPhone 6s into the newly announced iPhone SE.  The suggested retail is extremely competitive.  I can see this appealing to people who prefer smaller phones but want better performance. The 4″ display comes in at 1136 x 640 and will work well with GPS applications such as Waze. If you like the size of the Apple iPhone 5s, you will love the Apple … Read more…

Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus Car and Motorcycle Mounts

Apple’s new slogan for the recently introduced iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is “the only thing that’s changed is everything”.  There are some nice features introduced although I’m not sure that everything has changed.  Fortunately the size of the phone has, for the most part, stayed the same.  That’s great news for readers that have taken our prior advice and went with a universal cradle mount for previous generations of iPhone because your new iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus is going to fit your current mount and you can stop reading here.  For those that are new to … Read more…
