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 … Read more

Phone, Tablet and GPS Mounts for a Volvo XC90

The Volvo XC90 was a surprisingly fun vehicle to drive.  Lots of safety features that I have not seen in other cars.  The interior, seen here in the photo that accompanies this article, is spacious and well finished.  One might think that practically any mount will fit the Volvo XC90 just fine but unfortunately that’s incorrect.  This article will dive into some good and a few not so good locations to mount a phone, GPS or tablet. Let’s first get the locations that aren’t going to work well out of the way.  There’s no CD player, so that location is … Read more

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Range Rover

We’ve looked at a few models from Land Rover, but not the Range Rover.  So today, we got a chance to scope out the big (and expensive) Range Rover. 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

Phone and GPS Mounts for an Audi Q3

The Audi Q3 is the first model we have looked at from this manufacturer.  This is one of the smallest SUVs we have looked at.  Not wide and not long.  In fact, tall passengers in the front seat results in almost no leg room for back seat passengers. A photo of the interior of the Audi Q3 is included.  Nice looking interior with a few challenges.  Most notable is the center display which pops up from the dash.  This nullifies using the dashboard as a mount point.  Simply not enough room. The cup holders are set somewhat towards the back … Read more

Phone and GPS Mounts for a Subaru Crosstrek

The Subaru Crosstrek turned out to be a bit more difficult to find good mounting locations versus what we have previously experienced with Subaru.  While we were still able to come up with a few good suggestions, there are several places that aren’t going to work well. We previously looked at the Subaru Outback and Subaru Forester.  The Subaru Crosstrek is more difficult.  We will go through the most popular locations and discuss the pros and cons. By the way, you may have noticed we left out the tablet in our title as a device for mounting in a Subaru Crosstrek.  … Read more

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Volkswagen Jetta

The Volkswagen Jetta was a bit of a surprise in that it was a little difficult to find good mounting locations for a phone or GPS.  A tablet isn’t going to be easy to mount in this vehicle.  The car is simply too small and a tablet is too large.  None of our typical go-to locations will work out.  Fortunately though, we found some good locations for a phone or GPS. This is the second Volkswagen we have looked at.  Out initial article looking at mounts for a Volkswagen Passat was an easier one to write.  Lots of good places.  … Read more
