Phone and GPS Mounts for an Infiniti QX50

The Infiniti QX50 is a small luxury SUV made by the luxury division of Nissan.  This is another one of those vehicles that you would think is easy to choose a mount for, but it’s not.  The compact size, placement of speakers and cup holders and contours of the dash make this more challenging. Our typical photo of the interior of the Infiniti QX50 accompanies this article.  It’s a nice interior and reminds us (not surprisingly) of the Infiniti QX60 interior.  Well, except it’s more compact.  So compact that you can forget about mounting a tablet in the Infiniti QX50, … Read more

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Hyundai Santa Fe

The Hyundai Santa Fe is a standard sized SUV that has been around awhile.  Like any automobile, there have been design changes.  In the case of the Hyundai Santa Fe, less outrageous curves than earlier models made mounting a GPS or phone easier.  However, a tablet is a challenge. A photo of the Hyundai Santa Fe interior accompanies this article.  There are a few notable characteristics that effect mounting a device.  We will mention them as we move through this article. Let’s start with the windshield.  That’s the traditional go-to place for most mounts.  As an SUV goes, the Hyundai … Read more

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Chevy Malibu

The Chevy Malibu is a roomy but sporty sedan.  We took a look at what mounts will work and which ones won’t.  As usual, we found some good spots and a few that simply aren’t going to work. A photo of the interior of a Chevy Malibu accompanies this article.  A big roomy dash, well positioned cup holders, vertical vents. Let’s start with the mounts that will not work well. What’s missing from the photo with this article?  Did you figure it out?  No CD player.  We are fans of a good CD player mount but without a CD player, … Read more

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for an Infiniti QX60

The Infiniti QX60 is a really nice and really large SUV.  We have typically found mounting a phone, GPS or tablet easier in larger vehicles than smaller vehicles.  Surpisingly, the Infiniti QX60 didn’t fit this profile. Our typical photo of the interior of the Infiniti QX60 accompanies this article.  It’s nicer than most living rooms.  The Infiniti QX60 interior is reminiscent of a cross between the traditionally styled Nissan Pathfinder and bazaar shaped Nissan Murano.  A lot of room on the dash, a long reach to the windshield, all coupled with unusually shaped air vents. The windshield is a good … Read more

Phone and GPS Mounts for a Mazda 3

Figuring the Mazda 3 is your typical intermediate car, I was surprised by the complexity involved finding good places to mount a phone or GPS.  You can completely forget about a tablet, not enough space in this smaller vehicle. A photo of the interior of a Mazda 3 accompanies this article.  A surprisingly long reach to the windshield complicated by a strange console popping up from the dash.  This popup console complicates a lot of mounting possibilities and completely voids the potential to mount anything to the dashboard. Equally as difficult will be using a CD player mount.  Why?  Because … Read more

Phone and GPS Mounts for a Ford Mustang GT

Ford Mustang GT.  Fun to Drive.  Not fun to mount stuff.  While we doubt Ford will change their marketing to this slogan, it sure was hard to find good places to mount anything.  While we are able to recommend a few good mounts for a phone or GPS, you can forget about a tablet.  There is no place to safely mount a tablet in a Ford Mustang. Our usual photo of the interior of the vehicle accompanies this article.  On the initial appearance, you may think there’s plenty of places to mount a phone or GPS but we found that … Read more
