Vehicle Mount for Cell Phone

Mountek nGroove Grip Universal
Smartphones can be excellent while driving, especially in vehicles lacking comparable electronics, providing such hands-free services as:
  • Phone calls
  • GPS location and turn-by-turn navigation with voice prompts
  • Playing music and podcasts
  • Streaming Internet radio
This works best with a mount that holds the smartphone where it can be easily seen and used. Common mounts attach to windshield or dash with suction cups that can loosen over time and which often obstruct the view. Mounts that attach to air vents partially block the vents and can make them hard to adjust.

If your vehicle has a CD player, a better mounting solution may be the Mountek nGroove Grip Universal, pictured mounted in a Volvo S60 holding a Google (LG) Nexus 5 (recommended) with a Diztronic protective case (recommended). This mount is attractive, solid and secure, tilts and rotates, attaches and removes easily, with no need to remove or modify protective cases. (If you never play CD discs, you can leave the mount attached.)
  • Cable is power from a PowerGen Car Charger (recommended)
  • Connection to car audio is by Bluetooth in the picture, but cable could be used instead
  • App displayed is CarHome Ultra, made especially for driving (recommended)
