Lasted 18 months


I have a dash mount suction cup mount now. Seem pretty good. I really liked the Kensington.

I really like this mount never fell down. It would shake if you didn't have it so that it rested on the dash. Shakes more in my Pontiac vibe then in my cavalier

The plastic wings that hold the phone broke, maybe from being in the sun or just cheap plastic

Consumer review by:

mine also broke at hinge


Good design overall, very tight grip

Bounces alot. But worse it broke at the hinge. There is a lot of force and very little plastic at that point. Very poor design choice that compromises the whole thing

Perfect for the Nexus S


Bought it for the Nexus S (after reading a couple of reviews on different sites) Works perfectly!!! Have it on my car vent, which is a very good place for it. Does come with the windshield mount, but have not tried it since I really like the vent...

Best car mount for Nexus S


Bought it for my android Nexus S and it worked perfectly. I score a 3 for features as it doesn't include a suction cup for windshield installation. Overall it's a great product.

Dash Vent Mount is pretty slick


In addition to the suction-cup mounting arm, there's a spring-loaded dash vent mount that can be used instead. I've had good results with that; there's some vibration, but it's hardly objectionable

Gooseneck mounting arm isn't anything special

The best vent mount I have seen!!


If you want vent mount - don't look any father.This is the best mount for iphone. Very well made.

Good but not strong


I loved it as long as it worked. Now I doubt the quality of it and the discount behind it.

Excellent accessories. Both the vent and the windshield suction work well. And one base that attaches to both of them, is smart work

Bad bad plastic. The base that holds the phone broke in just 2 weeks. The clamp that holds the phone broke at one of its spring and the whole side clamp came apart. There's plastic and spring and a lot of taking off and putting on. Add add, it's a...

Good Product


I was kind of scared to purchase this because it was so cheap. This mount is awesome. Easy to place on your windshield and very sturdy. If you are second guessing buying, just do it. Fits my iPhone 4 w/case no problem

None really. Oh, the iPhone cord holder is kind of useless but whatever. Who cares about that

Great Buy


Works with many brands ; Good grip on device ; good grip on windshield

Bounces some while driving, loop the next and this is reduced alot

Fits Evo 4G


Found this when googling for car mounts for my Evo 4G. It fits the Evo fine with or without my TPU case (It is a better fit without the case though). Even though it only says it fits iPhone and iPods, it should fit a variety of phones with similar...

Quick release, small footprint. Probably one of the better looking car mounts out there

All plastic so it is a bit flimsy looking but seems like it should be durable enough if you are careful with it
