Phone Holder / Mount

Post by nikh » Sun Jul 08, 2018 8:46 am

Does anyone have suggestions for a phone holder?

I bought this as it looks great, very minimalist. However, my iPhone 6 goes flying across the car if I hit a bump in the road (which I avoid at all costs) or if I take a corner aggressively. Leather phone case and AMG suspension make this a no-go unless you're only doing motorway miles.

I've tried the magnetic version but if you use a case as I do then frequently the phone fell off the mount, currently I use the version which fits into the blower itself on the Land-cruiser and is great but obviously the vents differ on the A45 and GLA. As I've got two phones which I need to carry personal phone is connected through the car and company phone is generally ignored until I stop at my convenience especially when on vacation. 8-)

I use this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mpow-Universal ... +holder+cd

The mount slots into the CD tray which in this day and age of digital, who uses CDs still? I do sometimes use it to watch DVDs in the car. I have tried at least 5/6 and this is the one I have stuck to. It does create some vibrations but gets drowned out by music.

Thanks,
Mo

Hi Mo

I tried one of these on the Land Cruiser and although it's good for some reason I had issues with it probably because I go over speed bumps at a rate of knots after going through Bahrain and Saudi Customs so perhaps that caused the phone to drop out of it? :lol: 8-)

Hey dorsetred,

First, lol and I tend to slow down and take my time. I have never had a my phone come out of that holder. Mainly due to the side grips and the bottom is covered. This is by far the best mount I have had. I have noticed some areas actually don't have bumps but they look like the real thing, just fool the eye due to how they are designed as the surface is flat but still makes people slow down.

How do these fit ? How do you remove the air vents ?

If I remember the black outer rings have to be prised out with plastic interior trim tool and inner red rings rotate anti-clockwise

These holders look great, pity they don't have a brushed Alluminium version 🤨
