Phone and GPS Mounts for a Toyota RAV4

It’s like the Toyota RAV4 design engineers got together with a starting objective of making it as difficult as possible to mount anything.  This is one of the more difficult vehicles to mount a phone or GPS.  Forget about mounting a tablet. Almost all of our go-to locations are impossible to use (but we still have some ideas so read on). A photo of the interior of a Toyota RAV4 accompanies this article.  Good news, it has a windshield that we can use a suction mount with.  The vents on the sides are round.  The ones in the middle are … Read more

Phone GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Bentley Continental

The Bentley Continental might cost more than most people spend on all the cars they have purchased in their lifetime put together.  Sporting a sticker price in excess of $300,000, this cost more than many people’s homes.  However, who are we to discriminate against the owners of a Bentley Continental?  They need mount advice as much as the next guy.

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Land Rover Discovery

The Land Rover Discovery, to no surprise, is a very nice luxury SUV.  Gladly, finding places to mount a phone, tablet or GPS was fairly easy.  We will spend most of the article space on smartphone mounts for a Land Rover Discovery but will also touch on mounting a Garmin GPS and a tablet. Our typical photo of the interior of the vehicle is included and that’s a mighty nice one on the Land Rover Discovery.  A respectable amount of room on the dash, a long reach to the windshield, along with traditionally shaped air vents and a useful set … Read more

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 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
