    Passat and KeyONE combo

    Posted

    I recently purchased the iOttie - Easy One Touch 4 Vent Mount for use in my VW Passat with my Blackberry KeyONE. The KeyONE has a convenience key on the side of the phone, towards the middle, which I suspected may cause a problem for the mount grip (initially mounted the grip at the bottom of my phone). However, I checked the settings on my phone and found that I could set a car profile for the convenience key when it's connected via Bluetooth. I set the car profile function to Maps, and now when I snap the phone into place, the grip hits the convenience key, launches Maps, and I'm ready to plug in my destination. The air vent clip works well in the VW Passat due to the horizontal design. Additionally, due to the placement of the vents, my phone does not cover or obstruct any other functions on the center counsel or clutter my view out the windshield. I've yet to test how well the grip functions on rougher terrain, but on fairly well paved streets it functioned well, even with the lower and less stable mounting position for the phone. I did notice light shaking, though that is to be expected, and it did not appear to affect the grip on the phone. The snap and release functions work well, and the phone falls naturally into my hand as I press the release.

    Unusable

    I bought this because another product from Best Buy broke within 30 days and they refused to replace it and I was desperate for one as I had a big trip the next day. It had good reviews online but the moment I got it I realized it wouldn’t work. It has a ball on the back so you can move it in different directions but the way the ball is connected to the back is in 2 seperate pieces so it means it’s not strong enough to stay together. The front that holds your phone is fine and the back that connects to your car is fine but they won’t stay together. I have an iPhone 8 (not plus) and it can’t hold my phone up, when I put my phone in the holder the entire front immediately falls by my feet making and if it is able to hold it, it can’t hold it up so the phone hangs at a downward angle making it hard to see. Overall I simply can’t use it, huge waste of money.

    This is my go-to vent mount. I love the quick-release, and it's cool that you can simply "slap" the phone into a mount and it will stay there. I have several of these and am satisfied. Nonetheless here are the issues I have with them: 1. They can loosen and slip off of the vent without notice. I've tried folded pieces of sandpaper or tape with some success, but they still manage to work loose sometimes, 2. Phones with thicker cases hold in there pretty well, but they look kinda tenuous. Typically they sometimes fall, though, because of issue 1. above. Biggest phone I use with them: Pixel 2 XL with the heavy Otterbox case. I still haven't found anything I like more, so I'm sticking with these!

    This product works well if you don't mind your phone falling out pretty frequently. Sitting still I never have an issue but sometimes when I hit a very mild bump or just a vibration to the car driving down the road will knock the phone out. I say it happens about 20 times A-day I drive for 8 hours A-day. Is that gives you perspective on how often this happens I have a relatively large phone all the not the largest with Otterbox on it I have not tried without the Otterbox as I am a klutz and I will break my phone. Clip stays well attach to vent and the actual mount does not move once you Get it in place

    I was skeptical when I first bought this item, but the more I use it, the more I love it. It is a little tough to put onto the vent the first time because you feel like you are going to damage the vent, but once you are used to what it feels like to install, it is not an issue. I love the fact that I don’t have to put it on my windshield and make marks from the suction cup there. I thought it might block too much of the air flow, but that has not been the case either. Not a bad purchase for the price. Just make sure that you push it in all of the way to keep it from adjusting downward when you put your phone in place.

    It adjusts great! The only thing that is even a little unexpected is when I tap on my phone it has moved once or twice, but then I realize I can tighten the swivel joint by turning the knob. I can tighten it when it's clipped on or off. The swivel moving is also nice I can adjust it so I can see it clearly along with the road. the air vent clip is tight and hasn't fallen off from any bumps. One time I left my phone in the holder when parked in the sun and my phone got hot, but that happens I think if I leave it on the car seat if the sun is shining in. I'd buy this again. It's great.

    Best I’ve Found - but not perfect

    Bottom Line: iOttie still makes the best car mounted phone holders I’ve ever used. But it’s second best feature is it’s biggest flaw. Pros: the upgraded mounting button is bigger and better The vent grip is incredibly grippy The holder can grab my iPhone 8 Plus AND life proof case and still has a couple of millimeters to spare! Cons I have one of each of these in all 4 of my vehicles and the adhesive in the rubber grips is the weakest part of the iOttie lineup. I have had 2 fail due to the hot weather in Hawaii. The rubber grips will fall off over time.

    One spoke of the clip broke off.

    One spoke that attaches to the vent broke off. I have a round vent that rotates. I think this may be more suited for a vent that doesn’t move. I may be able to glue it back but this device will no longer be versatile. I will probably have to just leave it in place. I have only had this for 2 weeks. I didn’t go into the store for this one. They didn’t have the one I read up on. The salesman said he had this and it was fine. I do remember reading that this was not ideal. Lesson learned.

    Great Vent Mount

    My first time using an iOttie vent mount and I have to say I really like it, just a couple of things to consider. If you live in a pothole city like me then remember to always check on the mount to make sure it's all the way in. Otherwise a good bump can make the whole thing fall off with your phone in it. Second the unlocking mechanism isn't really as smooth as you like because you'll have to sometimes press it couple of times to stay open, wish it was lil more smoother but no deal breaker. Overall great vent mount you will not be disappointed.

    If you live in NYC or city with lots of bumps on the road vent mounts are tricky. For one your going to be blocking the AC for that vent which can be terrible especially with summer temps right around the corner. After a couple of months the grip on the vent clip came off from the bumpy road and no longer stays o securely....I chgd to a CD mount from same company which doesn't rely on the grip for the vent and also doesn't block it and to me is 10xs better.

    Seems a little shaky in supporting the new XRs

    I have been using a vent mount for quite a while. My old one broke and the exact model I had before didn't seem available. So I purchased this one. PROS: Very easy to mount and assemble. CONS: I think the weight of the new XRs is a little too much for this mount. It nearly falls out of the vent on my 2015 Hyundai Sonata. Once in place it seemed to be okay but road bumps caused it to fall out of the vent even with the nut tightened down.

    It's slightly insteady at times and I need to re attach/adjust, but overall this is a great little helper. It's super easy to attach phone to the gadget, which I love if I forget to do before starting out for a drive. Just push and it clicks in solidly. Also detaching while it requires some dexterity to do with one hand is pretty easy and re sets for easy attachment the next time you want to use it. So overall very pleased.

    Better than magnets

    I wanted a product similar to the magnet system I had been using, but without magnets and without the suction cups. The magnet system worked well for a year, but then I replaced the magnets several times and the results got worse. I don’t enjoy the suction cups because when left in the car year round it can cause discoloration on the dash of the car. Also, I don’t like sticking stuff to my window. Anyway, I came across this item and have used it for almost two weeks. It feels sturdy and dependable so far.

    I have an iPhone 6s in an otterbox and this mount works almost perfectly. If I take a turn too quickly it might fall (I blame that on my driving, haha). I bought one for my dad who has an iPhone 8 Plus in a charging case and he doesn't like it because his phone is way too big and heavy for it. I got my husband one for his iPhone 7 and he uses his just fine. It's worth getting one of these rather than a cheap one for sure.

    Best Vent Mount

    iOttie makes the best phone mounts for cars in my opinion along with a great warranty. I have been using them for years and they have been better than other brands I have tried. This uses the same attach/detach mechanism I have become used too. Only con is I am used to the other versions having a lip at the bottom for support. It would hold the phone for a split second before I grabbed it. The first few time my phone fell down to the floor. I had to adjust to grip phone and then push in the two buttons to let go the phone.

    I turned in my wireless charger that had a mechanical arms that held it in place, however the wireless doesn’t charge nearly as efficient as the wired and the arms stopped working. This device has a simple function and does it’s job. My only compliant is that sometimes it takes a couple of presses to open the arms. Otherwise, it would seem it will last a lot longer than my previous mechanical purchase.

    Clamp holds device securely to vent. Squeeze the clamp and removes from vent without any damage to vent. Snap arms snap closed around phone and securely holds phone into mount when phone comes into contact with the back of the mount. Easy to pivot. Mount does not interfere with any of the buttons on sides of phone. I have an I-Phone 6 with a Lifeproof case and there are no problems with my phone fitting into this mount and the mount holding the weight.

    Excellent product, but did not work in my car.

    Excellent product, but did not work well in my vehicle. I have a Mazda 6 with round A/C vents. Not only do the louvers adjust up and down but the entire vent housing rotates. When driving, the phone will not stay upright as the weight of the phone, as well as vibration and bumps from the roads cause the vent to rotate. If your vehicle has square or rectangular vents, this product will probably work fine for you.

    Best holder I've found

    This is easy to install and easy to use. It has a good grip on the phone, too. I like how it clamps on to the phone just by me tapping the phone against the sensor. My only complaint with this or other holders is that they need to better accommodate Pop Sockets on the back of phones. To avoid the Socket I have to have the clamp attach to the lower third of the phone, which seems a little precarious.

    Very easy to install and holds on the vent securely. It's easy to release and easy to place back on the mount with one hand. Highly recommended if you're an Postmates/Uber/Doordash driver and need to have your GPS and order information on your phone and visible while driving. I've tried a ton of other mounts, and this has been the best. Great invesment!
