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

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for an LG V35 ThinQ Smartphone

The LG V35 ThinQ is a minor upgrade to the successful V30 lineup.  Looks the same, feels the same, but inside is a newer processor and better camera. The exterior dimensions are the same as the LG V30 so if you are simply upgrading from the prior generation, no need to replace the mount (or the case).  The LG V35 ThinQ sports a 6.0″ diagonal screen, this phone measures 5.97 x 2.97 x 0.29 inches (151.7 x 75.4 x 7.3 mm) and weighs less than 6 ounces.  A case will add some girth to the picture so measure it before looking … 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

Physically Securing Echo or Google Home Devices

Physically securing Echo or Google Home devices is a good idea for areas where you need to worry about the device being taken.  Think places like a mall kiosk or perhaps an office.  It’s especially important in areas that aren’t secured at night and you need to worry about someone walking away undetected with your personal device. We’re going to borrow from our experience with other devices in terms of making it difficult to remove.  Physically securing Echo or Google Home devices makes it more difficult to remove, not impossible.  A determined thief will always find a way to take … Read more

Where to Put a Roku Express and How to Put it There

The Roku Express is an excellent low-priced streaming device.  It delivers a huge amount of functionality in a very small footprint.  The performance matches up with most other streaming devices.  It lacks an Ethernet port which definitely contributes to the smaller size. This is the second device we have looked at on our site.  Unlike the traditional Roku streaming box, this only weighs a bit more than an ounce and has a much smaller footprint.  It’s a cross between a streaming box and streaming stick.  It’s smaller than a streaming box and it is not a stick that inserts directly into … Read more
