Car and Motorcycle Mounts for an LG V30 and LG V30+ Smartphone

The LG V30 carries on where the LG V20 left off.  This series has developed a reputation as a high feature phone with a slightly smaller price tag than the premium brands. Although the display size is larger than the predecessor, the LG V20, it’s a smaller phone.  Checking in with a large 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.  Add a case to the phone, and you might be approaching 3.5 inches in width.  Some universal cradles open to 3 inches, so … Read more

Mounts for the Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited Motorcycle

The Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited is almost as large as an SUV.  It also costs as much as an SUV.  This is a seriously large motorcycle.  You would think there’s plenty of good places to mount a phone or GPS but surprisingly not. We have the usual photo with this article that shows the Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited cockpit.  It’s a busy cockpit.  We’re going to concentrate on a few locations for consideration when mounting a smartphone or GPS. The Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited handlebar is a standard diameter.  That’s good.  It means most motorcycle handlebar mounts should fit fine.  Except for one thing.  It slopes … Read more

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the LG G6 Smartphone

I’m beginning to think I should have shopped around some more for my latest Android smartphone.  The LG G6 is a big impressive phone that currently sells for about the same as my Samsung Galaxy S7 with better features and doesn’t have the annoying beveled edge. The LG G6 has a lot to talk about beyond the size (which is big).  The camera features dual rear 13 megapixel cameras that provide a 125 degree wide-angle view.  The 5.7 inch display has an 80% body to screen ratio and a 2880 x 1440 display.  An IP68 waterproof rating means you can get it wet and not have … Read more

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the LG V20 Smartphone

My what a big phone you have!  The LG V20 was recently introduced with some excellent features that rival the other major manufacturers Android 7 phones. It’s a big phone.  Sporting a large 5.7″ diagonal screen, this phone measures 6.29 x 3.07 x 0.30 inches (159.7 x 78.1 x 7.6 mm).  These are the key measurements for selecting your mount.  Mounts with custom cradles for a different phone are unlikely to fit the LG V20.  For those that have a universal mount, hopefully it opens wide enough to hold the LG V20 without a problem. Some universal mounts offer options to upgrade your … Read more

Garmin Rino Mounts for the Car, Boat or Handlebar

I remember the Garmin Rino 110 when it was first introduced about ten years ago.  It was a unique product combining two-way radio and GPS capabilities.  Interestingly enough, the Garmin Rino is still a viable device.  Garmin has updated it several times with the latest Garmin Rino 755t having a three-inch color screen and features such as weather reports and a waterproof rating of IPX7. The interesting thing about the Garmin Rino is that the basic shape hasn’t changed very much.  Some of the mounts available for the current series even fit the older ones.  We will look at a … Read more
