iOttie mounts, similar gooey suction cup, similar price = options. Just sayin.
I literally just ordered that one from Amazon yesterday, for the same price. Although I would have liked some Boinger-recommended suggestions as this is the 4th or 5th car mount I’ve gotten. I keep breaking them.
Yep, I’ve used the iOttie Easy One Touch Windshield Dashboard Car Mount Holder for over 3 years now. Works great, and the positioning arms have more options than the ExoMount. It also has “feet” that the phone rests up against, that are adjustable. This means the phone is positioned in exactly the same place every time. That’s important, because you don’t want the holding clamps to hit the phone’s side buttons. It’s got a 4½ star rating (out of 5). Out of nearly 14,000 reviews, 71% gave it a 5 star rating.
A cheaper one of these would be cool
Considering how quickly my battery drains when I’m using the phone for anything, I think I’d need a charging pad built into the mount.
Any ideas on a cheap one?
I just got http://www.amazon.com/TechMatte-MagGrip-Magnetic-Universal-Samsung/dp/B00V54LQO4 for my trip to re:Invent from San Diego to Vegas, and I like it a lot.
I don’t really use my cd player much anymore. Fuck optical media.
I literally had the CEO of EXOGEAR threaten to sue me, call my boss (because he claimed I wrote my Amazon review on a work computer), and cuss me out several times because his product failed a few weeks in and when I called customer service, they claimed that if failed because of ‘normal wear and tear’…ummm…this is what warrentees are designed for. NORMAL wear and tear. It was only like $20 and I figured instead of arguing with the company any further, I’d write a bad review on Amazon.
Apparently CEO Justin Lim has a habit of doing this sort of thing…the person that ran his customer service called me on a non-business number a few days later and tried to take care of it and something I said must have set him off because he said it was a semi-normal thing. HOWEVER to do this, I’d have to take down my Amazon review. Nope. And then more threats from Justin.
I would suggest anyone thinking of buying anything from ExoGear to avoid it.
A magnet mount is much cleaner looking, and I prefer the cd slot attachment too. The magnet is strong enough so that you can put in the charge cord with one hand. Example: http://www.amazon.com/WizGearTM-Universal-Magnetic-Swift-SnapTM-Technology/dp/B00NE4O672/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1444653090&sr=8-3&keywords=car+mount+cd+slot+magnet
I kind of laughed at the number of options that mounted in your CD slot. My car is old enough to have its own driver’s license. I still have a tape deck.
I had two that mounted in the vents, but they eventually break when I’m adjusting the angle. The car’s an old Saturn, with the ridiculously sloped windshield, so I don’t want the mount there as it’s never at a convenient angle. I’m hoping the one I bought stays stuck to the textured dash.
At this rate I’m going to have to buy a new car to accommodate a phone mount.
