Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 Phone, Tablet and GPS Mounts

The Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 is a nice midsize SUV with some radical style features that make this a bit of a mounting challenge.  A photo of the interior of a Mercedes-Benz GLE350 accompanies this article. We’ve looked at several Mercedes SUV models previously including the A220 and GLB 250.  We found some good mounting options in these vehicles and should be able to do the same here.

Lexus NX 300 Phone, Tablet and GPS Mounts

The Lexus NX 300 is a compact SUV that has a few mounting challenges.  The compact size presents some issues.  Let’s look at some of what works well and does not work well. We previously looked at a Lexus RX 350.  That’s one of the easiest vehicles we have seen for mounting a phone, tablet or GPS.  This is not as easy. Lexus NX 300 Mount Discussion It’s a compact SUV.  A bit cramped.  A sloped dash and a large extended infotainment display are going to make this mission difficult. The Lexus NX 300 has an easy to reach windshield … Read more

Phone and GPS Mounts for the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300

Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 Analysis Our usual photo of the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 interior accompanies this article.  It’s almost like Mercedes design engineers try to make it impossible to mount a device.  We previously reviewed Mercedes-Benz C450 and just like that vehicle, finding good mounts for this SUV isn’t going to be easy.

Volvo XC40 Phone, Tablet and GPS Mounts

The Volvo XC40 is not your typical Volvo.  It’s got some radical styling that I’m used to seeing in brands like Nissan and Hyundai.  It’s a very compact SUV and falls into the sub-compact space.  Mount choices are going to be limited. We previously looked at the Volvo XC90.  A much larger SUV and if you like the brand, have some extra money and need extra room, that’s another choice to consider (and spoiler alert, you can mount more stuff in to the XC90). Volvo XC40 Mount Analysis Our usual photo of the interior accompanies this article.  The windshield is … Read more

Lexus UX 200 or 250H Phone, Tablet and GPS Mounts

The Lexus UX is a sub-compact SUV that’s surprisingly easy to find a good mount location.  You can even mount a small tablet in the proper location. We previously looked at a Lexus RX 350 and Lexus NX 300.  The larger RX was one of the easiest vehicles to mount a device and the NX was more difficult.  The Lexus UX calls closer to the NX due to the size limitations inherent to the smaller SUV. Unlike the Lexus RX, this model does not have a dedicated phone slot in the middle console but there is a wireless charging compartment … Read more
