Phone and GPS Mounts for a Subaru Forester

The Subaru Forester turns out to be a fairly easy vehicle to mount a smartphone or GPS.  A tablet is a bit more challenging.  It’s a well designed interior without a lot of surprises. Similar to the Subaru Outback, the Forester doesn’t have a lot of radical interior curves, uses standard shaped vents and has some decent dash space.  This will make it easy to suggest some good mounts for smartphones and a GPS.  A tablet is almost impossible to comfortably mount.  The interior is simply too small and we don’t think it’s possible to mount a tablet and be … Read more

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 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 Hyundai Santa Fe

The Hyundai Santa Fe is a standard sized SUV that has been around awhile.  Like any automobile, there have been design changes.  In the case of the Hyundai Santa Fe, less outrageous curves than earlier models made mounting a GPS or phone easier.  However, a tablet is a challenge. A photo of the Hyundai Santa Fe interior accompanies this article.  There are a few notable characteristics that effect mounting a device.  We will mention them as we move through this article. Let’s start with the windshield.  That’s the traditional go-to place for most mounts.  As an SUV goes, the Hyundai … Read more

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for an Infiniti QX60

The Infiniti QX60 is a really nice and really large SUV.  We have typically found mounting a phone, GPS or tablet easier in larger vehicles than smaller vehicles.  Surpisingly, the Infiniti QX60 didn’t fit this profile. Our typical photo of the interior of the Infiniti QX60 accompanies this article.  It’s nicer than most living rooms.  The Infiniti QX60 interior is reminiscent of a cross between the traditionally styled Nissan Pathfinder and bazaar shaped Nissan Murano.  A lot of room on the dash, a long reach to the windshield, all coupled with unusually shaped air vents. The windshield is a good … Read more
