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

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Hyundai Tucson

The Hyundai Tucson was a bit more roomy than expected.  It also was easier to mount a phone or GPS than expected.  As expected in a smaller SUV, mounting a tablet isn’t easy but more on that later in the article. A photo of the Hyundai Tucson 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. Starting with the vent, the distance between the left middle vent and wiper lever is less than most other vehicles.  It might get in the way of a GPS … Read more

Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Subaru Outback

In terms of the mounting difficulty scale, the Subaru Outback checks in with a 5 on a scale of one to ten.  Our traditional recommendations work well.  The mounts that are always a little tricky won’t work well.  So, all in all, not a lot of surprises. We always try to include a photo of the interior with vehicle specific articles and we have done so with the Subaru Outback.  It’s a fairly conventional design.  Unlike the curviest SUV on the planet being a Nissan Murano, this is standard stuff. The most popular location for a smartphone or GPS continues … Read more

Phone, Tablet and GPS Mounts for a Nissan Pathfinder

Whenever it’s time for maintenance on one of my cars, I give myself some extra time to go through the showroom to check out the cars.  Of course, I’m not just looking at my next car but also how to mount a device.  Today, I had the opportunity to scope out a Nissan Pathfinder. I used to own one of these 20 years ago.  It’s changed a lot.  A Nissan Pathfinder is huge.  Much larger than twenty years ago.  It’s so large that I couldn’t do a head on photo of the dash and capture the entire view.  I had … Read more
