    Easy to use mount with a stay in place grip

    I’ve used 2 prior car mounts for the same phone. This one is so far ahead of the others that it isn’t even fair to call them competitors as this mount is in a league all its own. The first one kept falling off the windshield until the holder itself broke. The second was a “sticky” mount that would constantly drop the phone. These problems and many more have been completely solved by the iOttie. First, it clings to the windshield like it’s life depends on it. Then you have what has got to be the simplest way of mounting the phone to it that I’ve ever seen or have heard of. There is a large “button” on the unit that when you set the phone in place thereby activating this button the whole unit closes up around the phone and holds on to it with a vise grip that doesn’t let the phone move at all. There are even supports on the bottom that prevents the chance of the phone from sliding out from underneath. I have been using this mount a lot and have had not one single issue with it. It is truely a fantastic product. If you want a mount that will hold your phone securely look no further, this is the one for you.

    Dashboard Sticky Material Does not work

    I had high hopes for this product. The mechanism itself is solid and holds the phone perfectly when it tightens - I have a new Galaxy. The problem is that the product does not do what it is supposed to do, hold the actual piece to the dashboard. It's completely dependent upon a sticky substance. When I stuck it to my dashboard I followed the instructions EXACTLY as they are written. Within 15 minutes of driving, the weight of the phone overpowered the stick adhesive material and the entire mechanism collapsed onto my console. This is very disappointing as I had high hopes for this product. Perhaps the suction cup works better but I do not want anything suction cupped to my windshield, too distracting. I'll be putting in a request today for a full refund and sending it back to Best Buy or Manufacturer. The description of the ad starts like this - "Attach a phone easily to your dashboard " - that was not the case, its 100% dependent on the adhesive. furthermore. the adhesive material instantly wears out if you change locations. What are you supposed to do in that situation?

    Great and flexible cell phone holder

    Having an Samsung Galaxy Note 9, I needed a easy to use cell phone holder. I work for a medical courier service delivering samples to labs, hospitals, etc... Never knowing where I'm delivering to, I need to use a flexible holder for my phone to make use of the Gmaps. This holder is excellent for this purpose making my use of the maps simple. First, I decided to mount it on my dashboard using the supplied gel pad (you can also vent mount it if you wish.) Everything you need to mount it either way is provided. Once mounted, the holder can easily be turned to have your phone vertical or horizontal. Next, a simple push of the phone against the back of the holder, securely locks your phone in place. The holder can then be easily adjusted to tilt/move your phone to whatever angle you wish. When you are finished with the use, a push of the buttons on each side of the phone is all that is needed to release it. The holder is made of durable materials and should last a long time without problems. I highly recommend it.

    Great phone holder, but feels breakable

    This was the ideal phone holder for my situation. I did not want something hanging on for dear life from (and blocking) my air vents. Also, I use a magnetic backing on my phone, so it just slides around and turns on its own accord with magnetic holders. This holder keeps my phone securely in place, connected to the car where it does not block vents and is extremely accessible. Also, the sticky ring has held onto my dashboard through cold and very hot with no issues of it coming off. The only drawback to this holder is that you must be extremely careful in setting its raised/lowered position, because that one adjustment is not controlled by friction rings (like all of its other adjustments are, which are good), but instead by a plastic clicking mechanism inside the unit that feels like you will easily break it off (on the inside) if you adjust it with too much force. That is, if you want to move the arm up or down once you have attached the unit to your dashboard, you'd better use both hands and be really gentle or you might break the whole unit.

    It's working well so far

    After literally fighting with my former air vent mounted cell phone holder every time I tried to open the grips in order to seat it, I selected this product based on its ease with opening the grips. It looks a little bulky and has a lot of knobs and levers to tighten but I'm satisfied with its functionality so far. When I first mounted it I didn't realize how important it is to depress the suction when you stick the holder to the pad that sticks to your dashboard. How important is it? Well the apparatus toppled over for the first 3 attempts to use it. Be careful!!! The pad unstuck and the mount and phone and all fell to the floor. Hmmmmm!!! The instructions don't really emphasize the requirement to depress (push in) the suction while you're marrying the 2 pieces together. But in examining the piece I noticed that the words "super suction" and noticed the give when pushed...so on the next attempt I pushed down (on suction area) while marrying the sticky sides together. It hasn't fallen again since (7 days so far).

    This cell phone holder is great for use in a single car. I needed one to hold my phone while on vacation in a rental car where my normal GPS was not keeping pace with construction. This mounted very easily on the window and stayed on tight the whole trip despite the Texas heat. In fact, when I was returning the rental car, it was challenging to remove due to its nice gel backing on the suction cup. So as to my first statement, this is not a holder than can travel with you. I reattached it to my own car and have not had any issues since. Pros: - Strong attachment and very easy to use. - Definitely able to use a single hand, just read the instructions first as to how to use. - Can hold many different positions due to the arm and extension. Con: -The one downside I will say is that it tends to bounce around a bit when on bumpy roads due to its design having an arm that holds the phone. But works fine on smoother roads.

    Good Quality, Sturdy, and Sticks

    Plenty of easy adjustment options for the perfect angle, doesn't feel cheap, and most importantly it sticks very well! This is my second one for my other vehicle. I use them with my iPhone XS and Galaxy S9, both with cases on them. It never feels too heavy as if my phone is going to fall or the mount will tip over. I absolutely love this thing and I've owned several mounts previously, known compares to this one. The 2 features I like the most, is the ability to adjust the arm vertically up and down or extend it out closer towards you, and being able to just sit your phone on the mount and it automatically grips it with out having to tighten or adjust anything. Removing the phone is just as easy, and can be done with one hand be pressing a button on the side while you pull the phone out. It truly requires no fumbling or effort to use this thing.

    If you're Ubering, don't get this!

    I bought this because I am driving with Uber and needed something to hold my phone. It sticks to your dashboard or car console, but it doesn't last long. This lasted all of about 2 hours for me before the plastic glue lost its stick, it snapped off my dashboard, and my phone went flying. It's also hard to get your phone out of the holder thing..it locks your phone in place, so when you get out of the car and go to grab your phone, you loosen the glue even further. You're much better off getting one that clips on to the air conditioning vent without side arms. I couldn't use those before because my phone is a Note and is HUGE, plus with the case...it wouldn't hold the phone in place. However, the air vent ones now come with a little metal piece you stick inside your case and the phone just sticks via magnet to a little holder (without side arms). That one has been perfect. I have been driving all over creation with that one...turns and bumps and brakes...and my phone hasn't fallen once. This one? Complete waste of money.

    I like this phone holder. It is very customizable with the extensions and arms that are very adjustable. It is very easy to put your cell phone in. It Is easy to release the phone but I’m not sure how durable in the long term. My one issue is that I put it on my dash it was very sticky and held strong but when I had to move the suction cup it was stuck on really good. When I peeled it off it seemed still very sticky. I stuck it back on my dash but the next morning it had fallen off of my dash. I rinsed off the suction cup and it was sticky again but was not as strong. It fell off again when I rinsed it off this time it lost all its stickiness. Now having said this. I really believe if I didn’t have to move it ... It would have stuck on my dash forever. It is very strong. Therefore I highly recommend this phone holder.

    Highly adjustable

    After I purchased this I took it right out to my car to install. After awhile I realized that I was missing the round sticky pad to install on my dashboard, under the suction cup. I took it back inside that easily exchanged it. I then easily installed it right next to my steering wheel and I have been using ever since. When putting my phone in it it quickly snaps to tightly hold the phone. It is a little difficult to get my fingers around it to push the two buttons in to extract my phone to take it with me. With a little practice I have gotten better at it. I do like how adjustable with the extendable arm and hinges to get my phone close to me. Finally, the suction cup seems to hold the unit tightly in place. We'll see when it gets hot out.

    Great Windshield Mount

    I had just purchased a new vehicle and was in dire need of a new phone mount for the windshield since my last stereo had apple play. After a quick google search i stumbled upon this mount. Not only does this mount work on windshield but it is supposed to be able to mount to the dash as well (have not tried this option yet). The adjust-ability of this mount is superb, not only was i able to put it in an area that was invasive to my line of sight but i was able to face it at me with ease. I thought the quick release and snap into place function would be something to get used to but it was very seamless. I've had this product for about a month now and it still lives up to all the other reviews i read.

    Doesn't hold larger phones

    I purchased this for a recent road trip so I could simply use the GPS on my phone rather than my GPS unit. I liked the idea of mounting this on the dash rather than the windshield so I didn't have to worry about my phone falling down while driving. Unfortunately I ran into that very issue shortly after putting my phone in the mount. The arm that holds the phone doesn't attach to the mount strongly enough to keep my phone upright while driving down the road. I have a Samsung Galaxy S8+, which is supposed to be compatible with this mount but proved to be too heavy. Unfortunately I will be returning this mount and continuing my search for future road trips.

    The Best Dashboard Mount I Ever Owned!

    This is truly the best dashboard mount I have ever owned. Its way to set up and hold well in place on your windshield. The greatest part about this mount is the lock in feature once you place your phone on the grab arm. Once you place it on the grab mount the clap snaps closed, locking in your phone. Once the phone is in there its not falling out, not even if you drive over bumps. I had mounts that clap on the dash board as well as those that clap onto the vents. Whatever you do stay far away from those two types of mounts. They both either break or after time do not stay secured for long. If you need a mount definitely get this one. It holds my iPhone XS Max very securely!

    Great Design, Questionable Durability

    After extensive research, I purchased this unit to replace my much loved and discontinued mount. First off, the design is excellent. It doesn't matter your situation, you can find a way to mount it in your car. The clip in/click out design is the best I've ever used. I like it better than my previous mount, and I never expected that. The bad: I'm already having some problems with the phone holder. It clips in perfect, but the click out doesn't engage occasionally. This from a mount that's 3 weeks old. At this point I'm just hoping to get a year. The crazy part is I'll consider buying another when it goes. It just works that good.

    Initially I was very excited about this product. It seems very well-built and was quite maneuverable. It held onto my phone just fine and I was able to position my phone to write where I wanted it. The problem was that the device would not stay connected to the suction pad. The weight of my iPhone XS Max kept pulling it down until it eventually lost suction and fell off my dash. After three such times, while I was driving, everything went back in the box and it went back to Best Buy. Perhaps if you have a smaller, more light weight phone, you won’t have the same issues as I did.

    It actually stays on the dash!

    My old cell phone holder would eventually come lose from the dash board and go flying across my vehicle without warning. So far, this one has actually stayed where I put it, even with the sun baking down on it. Sometimes the arm bends down a little, and I have to lift my phone up to see the screen more clearly, but it has never fallen off. I found that by mounting it off to the left of the steering wheel, it doesn't block my view of the road, and it works really well there. It is really easy to get the phone in and out with one hand as well. I liked it so much, I bought these for my family as well.

    I was very pleased with this product besides the fact that It was difficult to input any kind of text while my phone was mounted. I did, however, enjoy the options of mounting that were offered with this product. I could either use the suction cup for my windshield or use a very strong adhesive for the topside of my dashboard. I ended up returning this product because I couldn't get over the fact that I couldn't input text while the phone was mounted. But it could definitely be a great product if an alternative method is ever sought out for attaching a phone to the mount safely and securely along with ease of use.

    Got one of these just to try it in my truck. After two weeks and a long trip, I got #2 & 3 for our other cars. Great design, versatile, and holds well on all 3 of our mild textured dashes. Much safer and convenient for navigation & talk. I damp wiped dust off, let dry, pressed down, and threw the suction lever. Holds tight. No need for any other! I'm sure the window mount would work great, but I don't like anything blocking my view. I have them just to the upper right of the wheel. I can get to it by barely taking my hand off the wheel. Eyes stay on the road! Next best thing to HUD.

    brought home holder that sticks in vent....wife made me take it back so bought this one....has very flexible adjustment options (i.e. closer, farther , left , right). Was leery of the whole stick on thing but stuck it on top of dash and it's quite strong. It hung on with no problems on an 8 hour drive to Texas through Oklahoma and if you know Oklahoma roads that is no small feat....we'll see how long it hangs on through heat of summer. It's a little awkward to release the phone while driving but probably not a good idea to do that anyway....I'd buy it again ....holds phone well also
