      Need a car mount for iPhone6+ INSIDE OtterBox case

      I took a job that they got plane tickets from Miami,FL to San Jose,CA. Ok packed my 2 suitcases (that American Airlines screwed me on the charge but go reimbursed). The thing is in a rental, they don't come with cell phone holders. Having to use Apple Maps (sometimes Google too) to find my way around I got tired of holding it on the steering wheel. I don't know CA law, but I am sure that CHP or SJC police would have given me a ticket for something That state is the WORST, $0.10 on a dollar tax....come on?! Anyway I looked at what WallyWorld had but I thought naw, the Best Buy is down the street from where I was working at, so I stopped by and went around the store looking for a holder. By the cell phones themselves, all they had was "girly" stuff for like a iPhone 5 or a blowsung Galaxy S5. One of the guys said go look in the car stereo part, I did, this was there. I did take it out of the box (cut the safety seal with my pocket knife, didn't want to mess up the box if it didn't fit) and it did fit...barely. So I bought it. Brought it back with me to Miami,FL. The old one I had in a 4door F150 MANsize truck (not some girly small rental car) was getting old (like 1 year in the FL sun the suction cup had turned like brown from the sun). So this took it's place. It is a good holder for my iPhone 6+ in a OtterBox Defender case. So IF you are not a girly guy, and got a real phone, get one. Next time I fly to another place I need to remember to bring this (or another one) for those rentals, that and a cig lighter charger too (bought one at a Safeway grocery store in San Diego by Golden Gate bridge and it just literally sukcs for the $9 it cost, threw it out the window on my way to the airport to fly back home).

      Great for using your cellphone as a GPS!

      This is a great mount especially if you plan on using your cellphone as your GPS, it allows you to keep your phone in view without having to glance down at it or pick it up while driving. It is very sturdy, adjusting the arm on it is easy but not so easy that it will bend by a bump in the road for example. The suction cup on it holds even heavier phones quite effortlessly, I have an HTC Surround and even a silicon case and it is able to support the weight. I also like that the suction cup has a switch on it to flatten the cup and thus losing suction if you ever need to take it off so it is completely hassle free. The grip this has on the phone is amazing and simple to use, the material the phone rests on makes sure the phone doesn't slide and the adjustable arms on it have a foam padding on them that keeps your phone secure and protected, I absolutely love that they are fully adjustable too, so if you have buttons on the side of your phone they can be adjusted to fit best without getting in the way of the buttons. Also placing and taking the phone off the mount is easy since the adjustable arms expand outwards with a button on the side. When setting the phone on the mount you just expand the arms out, place the phone on the mount, and then tighten the arms to the phone just enough to hold it in place. Taking it off is just as easy. This was definitely money well spent and I have absolutely no complaints whatsoever. I would definitely recommend it and am already suggesting it to friends of mine! If anyone has questions about it I can answer! Please rate my review! :)

      Excellent phone mount!

      I use this mount in my Audi A4 and attach it next to the rearview mirror mount slightly below it and the length of this arm brings it out very close to my steering wheel which is perfect so I don't have to reach very far to get it and my peripheral vision is still on the road if I need to look at it if I'm using my phone as a GPS as well. For those to mess with their phone/GPS more than they should while driving, this is an excellent buy since you'll still be able to keep your eyes on the road versus the other models where you have to look down near your center console or vents to see it which is very dangerous. I'm a type a driver who does not want anything on the windshield as I find it to be a distraction but after a week, I don't notice it unless I'm driving at night and the screen is lit up and I am turning right and the phone is blocking my immediate field of vision at the edge of the corner but usually a turn that sharp means you're at lower speeds so dimming the screen for moment is an acceptable compromise. As long as you install it on your windshield properly, it should stick for a very long time. In the year I've owned mine (this one is for my wife's car) it's only come off the windshield once after a cold spell.

      Sticks well but a bit small

      I bought this after 2 previous (but different) windshield mounts failed after a year or so each. We live in South Florida where the sun beats down on the windshields pretty hard and the silicone/rubber disintegrates pretty quickly. At any rate I bought this "Universal" mount to use with my Tom Tom XXL540 GPS. The mount itself appears to have good suction and seems like it will stay well attached to the windshield. Although the GPS can sort of be jammed into it, however, it barely fits and is not sitting in the unit all that securely. On the occasion I use my cell phone's GPS that does fit well. I use my Tom Tom 95% of the time, however, and it really is pretty annoying that they couldn't add 5 cents worth of plastic to make it open up just a little bit wider to better accommodate the units that are out there. My XXL is NOT an extra large model - it's an average size. Anyone with a bigger unit is not going to be able to use this. Universal it is not . . .

      Do not buy

      Avoid this product like the plague. This product was completely useless. The release button is extremely hard to press, making it difficult to remove your phone or GPS. The suction cup is the weakest I've ever encountered; it's made from a hard plastic that will not conform to the contours of your window. The slightest touch or jostle in the road will send it flying from your windshield to the floor. Oddly, when I returned this item to exchange it, the only similar product I could find was made by the same company, but cost less money. Oddly, it didn't have any of the above problems. The release button not only was easy to use, but when pressed multiple times you can easily adjust it to fit larger devices. The strangest part is, the "good" device seems to be the older of the two. The poorly designed device seems to be the newer replacement. A design fail that stinks of cost cutting and price gauging.

      One of The Best, But...

      This is my 2nd purchase of this product. My original purchase lasted 2 years and would have probably lasted much longer if my car wasn't always parked in the direct sun. The only issue with this mount is that it is not strong enough to hold the weight of my new cell phone without bouncing quite a bit. My previous phone was a Samsung Galaxy S4 and it worked great with it. My new phone is a Motorola Moto X Pure and it is larger and heavier than my previous cell phone. With this difference in weight, the mount's long arm bounces a lot on roads that aren't perfectly smooth. This makes it hard to see and read the screen. Otherwise this is a high quality product. I just don't think it was meant to be used with a phone that weighs as much as mine does. I still highly recommend it for lighter phones.

      Reliable car mount for your Smart Phone GPS

      This is a reliable car mount for your Smart Phone GPS. It has a powerful "Garmin style" suction cup for your car window. It has a very strong adjustable extension. It easily clamps down on your phone with one hand. The extension is just the right length and sturdy. With a press of a button behind the clamp it releases your phone. Please use a mount like this when using your GPS while driving. It is foolish to hold your phone GPS or put it on the dash to fly out the window or under your feet. My only problem with this mount is that the clamp sometimes will unhinge from the extension when messing with it, unintentionally. A big plus is that it fits many sizes of smart phones, I use an iphone 6 personally, but it probably does not fit a phablet. Also, no stupid stickers or magnets. A real smart buy.

      Should Have Bought Sooner

      My new car did not have a place to set my cell phone so that I could see the GPS (the prior one--I put behind the steering wheel on the steering column in front of some of the gauges). I decided to try this and immediately realized what I had been missing. Placed on the left right by the pillar, it holds the phone in the perfect spot. Only issue--the phone vibrated due to it being on a 10 inch stalk attached to the windshield with the suction cup, sort of like holding something out with your arm while driving. Easy solution--some little round adhesive bumper pads from Home Depot on the bottom of the holder, and the holder rests on the dash (attached to window, resting on the dash). The phone does not move at all. Awesome investment.
