Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Mercedes-Benz CLS 450

The Mercedes-Benz CLS 450 has a mighty nice looking interior.  Sleek lines, all leather and lots of technology.  We’re going to look at good places to mount a phone, GPS or tablet in a Mercedes-Benz CLS 450. A photo of the Mercedes-Benz CLS 450 interior accompanies this article.  We took a good look at what will and will not work in this vehicle and quickly realized this is not an easy vehicle to mount a device.  It’s almost as if the engineers got together with a design principle of making it as difficult as possible to mount a device. We’ve reviewed a … Read more

Phone Tablet and GPS Mounts for a Subaru Ascent

Subaru makes great vehicles.  Subaru doesn’t always make vehicles that are easy to mount stuff.  In terms of compatible mounts, the big giant Subaru Ascent is no different from most other Subaru vehicles.  We previously looked at a few other vehicles from this manufacturer including the Subaru Crosstrek and were met with similar challenges. The Subaru Ascent appears to share many similar interior design characteristics as the Subaru Crosstrek.  Vertical vents and a display jutting up in the middle of the dashboard.  This makes the vent, dash and even the windshield a bit more difficult to mount a device.

Our typical photo of the interior of the vehicle is included and this might among the nicest we have seen in an SUV.  It’s big and luxurious.  We have also analyzed the Land Rover Discovery, and found this to be as easy to find good mounting locations. So looking at the interior, we notice a few things.  Nice wide dashboard, horizontal vents, windshield within easy reach.  However we also notice no … Read more
