Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Huawei Mate 9

This is the first article on our site about a phone from Huawei and it’s a fairly impressive one at that.  The Huawei Mate 9 was introduced by the company in September 2016. Very impressive specs that rival (and surpass) some of the best out there.  An impressive 20 MP rear camera and 8 MP front camera with 64GB of memory.  That’s impressive for the price. To get ready for the mount discussion, lets check the dimensions of the phone.  The Huawei Mate 9 sports a 5.9 inch diagonal display so it’s a bit larger than most smartphones.  The Huawei Mate … Read more…

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…

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Google Pixel and Pixel XL

So now Google makes a phone?  Sure.  Why not.  The Google Pixel and its big brother the Google Pixel XL hit the market in October of 2016.  It’s gotten fairly good reviews too.  With all the Samsung issues of late, this may not be a bad alternative for Android fans.  For iOS fans in love with Siri, Google Assistant might be smarter than her.  It’s a nice looking phone with a great camera. When it comes to mounting, it’s important to know the dimensions of these devices.  The Google Pixel checks in with a 5.0 inch diagonal screen and is 5.60 inches … Read more…

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for an Old Navigon GPS

I became a big fan of Navigon about ten years ago.  Their software and hardware was ahead of the rest.  That included Garmin, TomTom and Magellan.  There must have been something to it because Garmin purchased Navigon in 2011.  They quickly discontinued Navigon hardware but integrated some of their unique software features into today’s GPS, especially around the traffic views on the Garmin Nuvi and Drive GPS. Although you can’t buy a new Navigon GPS, you can purchase their iOS or Android apps.  I see the iOS app available for around $50.  Never tried it as I’m a fan of Waze … Read more…

OnePlus 3 Car and Motorcycle Mounts

The OnePlus 3 SmartPhone is the successor to the very successful OnePlus 2.  What’s different?  A lot.  A faster processor, 16MP camera, slightly larger in size and a new operating system.  This is normally sold as an unlocked phone which means this will work with multiple carriers. While the OnePlus 3 is a large phone featuring a diagonal screen at 5.5 inches, this phone is 6.01 x 2.94 x 0.29 inches (152.7 x 74.7 x 7.4 mm).  These are the measurements needed when selecting a mount.  I haven’t seen any OnePlus 3 custom cradles so we are going to discuss universal mounts.  The OnePlus … Read more…

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for Motorola Moto X Pure

The Motorola Moto X Pure was introduced in late 2015 as part of a long line of Moto X deviants. The Motorola Moto X Pure is the phone for those that aren’t looking to get locked into a carrier specific contract as it comes unlocked.  This phone has a humongous 21MP camera.  I’m not sure if you will ever need that kind of resolution not am I sure of how large those images will be.  But if you want to take some real serious photos, this camera is going to let you do that.  The Moto X Pure is also known as … Read more…
