Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Vintage Car

We’re going to talk about where to mount a mobile device within a vintage automobile.  I’m sure the designers of any vintage car never dreamed of what we’re using today, let alone mounting it in a car. When you think about almost any vintage car, the typical places where we would like to mount a phone, GPS or tablet start to become difficult to find.  Depending upon when the vintage car was manufactured, there may not be an air vent because there wasn’t any such thing as air conditioning.  A cup holder in a vintage car?  Don’t think so.  CD … Read more…

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Toyota Camry

The Toyota Camry is one of those vehicles that can accept almost any mount.  Not a lot that will not work in this car but there are a few locations that will work better than others.  Last week, I looked at the Jeep Renegade which was the exact opposite, almost nowhere to mount anything.  This restores my faith that car designers haven’t lost their minds.
