Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Apple iPhone X

The Apple iPhone X is the latest introduction in a long line of successful generations of the company’s flagship product line.  It’s one of the top phones out there with features that exceed practically anything else out there.  Naturally, that will change in less than a year from now.  But for today, it’s one of the best out there. In addition to being one of the most expensive phones, it’s also Apple’s largest one to date.  The screen size checks in at a hefty 5.8 inches diagonally.  Surprisingly though, the overall dimensions of the Apple iPhone X are quite reasonable.  … Read more

Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus Car and Motorcycle Mounts

The Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus are now available.  That means it’s time for our semi-annual article on mounts to fit the latest and greatest iPhone model. The most notable change, and it’s one that I’m  not a fan of is the elimination of the 3.5 mm headphone jack.  Sure, you can use a Bluetooth headset, but some would prefer not to.  While Apple provides a 3.5 mm to Lightning port adapter, that eliminates the ability to use a headphone jack and charge it at the same time.  I guess this makes it easier to mount the … Read more

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Apple iPhone SE

Well I certainly didn’t expect Apple to go backwards in size.  That’s exactly what happened with the Apple iPhone SE.  Such an interesting direction.  Apple stuffed some of the same specs such as the processor and RAM that’s found in the iPhone 6s into the newly announced iPhone SE.  The suggested retail is extremely competitive.  I can see this appealing to people who prefer smaller phones but want better performance. The 4″ display comes in at 1136 x 640 and will work well with GPS applications such as Waze. If you like the size of the Apple iPhone 5s, you will love the Apple … Read more

Smartphone Telescope Mount and Adapter Ideas

The subject of a smartphone telescope mount came up when speaking to a friend during the big New Jersey blizzard of 2016.  He’s an amateur astronomer and was bragging about how he was taking photos of various constellations using his Apple iPhone.  I wasn’t aware you could do this, so we talking in-depth and I began to check into this further because it sounded like something I wanted to do as well.  This is called astrophotography.  Had not heard that term until today. With some research, I learned that while you could certainly hold your phone up to the lens … Read more

Techmount Phone Mounts for Motorcycles

We have written about the Techmount motorcycle line in several past articles.  Techmount makes good durable mounts for electronics.  Today, we are concentrating on their products made for mounting a smartphone. Techmount offers a few different smartphone cradles.  In my opinion, the best for motorcycle use is the Techmount TechGripper which features a spring-loaded cradle that opens to four-inches.  Four inches is large enough for most smartphones with or without a case or skin.  It’s even large enough for some GPS units and can provide a grip that’s more secure than the mounts that come with some GPS models.  When closed, this cradle … Read more

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus

iPhone bigger and better.  At least that’s what Apple calls it.  Recently made available, this is the most popular release to date of a new Apple iPhone.  It’s understandable, especially for those not already owning a more current phone.  The performance and functionality improvements introduced with the new phone as well as the new operating system (IOS release 8) are significant.  This is a site that focuses on the stuff needed to make your devices mobile, so if you want to read about some of the enhancements, take a few minutes to view it at Apple. We would be remiss without … Read more
