iPhone holder?

Anyone have any suggestions where to put your iPhone? Any good holders or mounts?

Review: Kenu Airframe+ car mount for iPhone 6 Plus | 9to5Mac
I'm considering this one. My only concern is loosing a vent in an already inadequate HVAC system.

Re: iPhone holder?

you didn't mention which model jeep you have, check out KUDA mounts from Germany.
They make some really nice custom ones designed specifically for each car model, they are sold in the USA....and they have all kinds of options for different phones, GPS units, etc....
I have one in my new GC, and it looks really nice, and is not in the way of anything

Re: iPhone holder?

A lot of folks hated my setup when I posted about it originally, but it's served me well and has the phone exactly where I want it to be....the black mounting block is by Kuda and the rest is Arkon.

As mentioned above but with the Amazon link and high quality reviews. I also have 2 of these and went from the iPhone 5 to iPhone 6 with no issues! The mount does not get loose nor does the swivel get loose.

I have used it in over 6 different vehicles. My Jeep, wife's vehicle, and all company cars. Not one single fit problem since there are 2 sizes of vent grips to accommodate 99% of your vehicle style air vents.

Re: iPhone holder?

Looks like the only issue I would have with this vent mount, is that with a phone in it, it looks like it would block the air flow out of vent you install it on, where I live it gets over 100 degrees most summer days, so I need all the air flow I can get.... May not be an issue at all in other parts of the country.....

Re: iPhone holder?

theweavman, that's the major down-side to a vent-mount type system...they block or alter airflow. For some folks that doesn't matter; for others, it's a concern.

Agreed. I do find it slightly annoying. However, I typically turn off the flow from that vent which gives a better flow to others. My vent mount uses up the driver vent at the right of the steering column.

Hey Jim I like your setup mate 👍 where did you get those items from ? I say they would fit a 2014 SRT judging by the looks any links or info on those items mate 😀
