Question Any of you guys use a Phone mount?

I've always placed my phone in the cup holders and I realised that a good phone mount would help avoid that (especially when I have a cup in hand!!!).

Anyone uses a phone mount, if so what type? I'm trying to look for a vent mount rather than a glass suction one because I hate my phone obscuring the view.

ProClip USA is the one I have and it's the perfect spot so long as u don't need that vent's flow. I close it off in winter as the heat out of it is too much IMHO for the phone but I keep it open in summer with AC....they r pricey but work great.

Isn't this a suction cup based mount? How do you place it over your vent?

I personally use the spider mount but it is too flimsy and falls more than often from the vent.

A couple notes... I originally had an iPhone and, as a practicing "MacGyver" , I could not bring myself to buying the new htc one m8 cradle so I modified it by removing the bottom power bayonet mount and just plugging in the cord to the bottom when I need to...works for me....also, that hook on there is another MacGyver mod to hang my Jawbone Prime, from yesteryear . I also always keep the cubby door open so I just loop the cord on top and its a pretty clean solution for me.

Re: Any of you guys use a Phone mount?

This is a good solution for a minimal vent mount. Also a plus if you like magnets like I do. It's not on there normal website yet but you can get one at indiegogo.

Eh, clunky IMHO as everyone uses a case of some kind and the metal pad would then have to b adhered onto it, eh, nice idea but real world not so sure...

Re: Any of you guys use a Phone mount?

With the size of some of these phones,you're gonna need something to hold them up during driving or they will be on the floor after the first right or left turn. It can't be too flimsy.

Re: Any of you guys use a Phone mount?

I actually just put my iPhone 6+ in the drivers door arm rest hole where you grab to close the door from the inside. Fits perfect, has never fallen out and I don't have an ugly aftermarket thing blocking my vent or view.
