Device mount

I love my GPS.  It goes everywhere I go and I depend on it more than I'd really like to admit.  With the advent of the GPS-equipped smartphone, we have the option to use apps like Google Maps and Navigation to stand in for a GPS.  Convergence, right?  Why have two devices when one will [...]

One of the perks of being a Gadgeteer is occasionally receiving (aka getting our grubby tech-loving hands on) a prototype of a product before the rest of the world. In this case, NKMOS has sent me one of their new all aluminum universal car mounts to give a try even before their Kickstarter campaign has [...]

There are countless cheap plastic mounts designed to hold your smart device while driving in an orientation that enables your device to function handsfree while keeping both hands on the wheel. Many of these mounts work just fine and fulfill their intended purpose. But when I can avoid plastic, I do and typically look for [...]

"Slip sliding away.  Slip sliding away. You know the nearer your destination, the more you're slip sliding away."  Paul Simon wasn't singing those words about how your cellphone acts inside your car when you are driving, but they couldn't be more apropos.  I have lost track of the number of times I have placed my [...]

The Ultima is the highest quality smartphone car mount I have ever heard of or seen. NKMOS originally introduced the Ultima as a KickStarter project back in 2012, where it surpassed its initial goal many times over.

Studies tell us that texting while driving is equally dangerous as driving while impaired, yet a surprisingly large percentage of adults - and even more teens - admit to texting while driving.  There are apps designed to prevent hand-held usage of phones while driving, but people often find a way to bypass these apps.  If [...]

Even before I took delivery of my MINI Cooper, I knew that the first modification I'd do it, would be to add a smartphone mount. There are many options on the market that use different mounting methods like Velcro, suction cups, cup holders and sticky tape. None of those appealed to me, I wanted something [...]

Well, you'll at least be able to stop replacing your in-car device mounts if you purchase the Innotraveler Universal Car Mount from Seidio.  This mount has a baseplate and two re-useable adhesive pads to hold your phone, GPS, MP3 player, or other small device (up to a 5.5" screen) securely in the mount.  You anchor [...]

As I have stated in past reviews, keeping my world less cluttered and relatively organized is key to managing my hectic, whirlwind life. Whether it is for work or personal travel, when I am in a vehicle my smartphone is typically rattling around the center console or available cup holder. A very sad circumstance, since [...]

When I drive, my iPhone is typically rattling around a cup holder or the center armrest between the front seats, neither of which is ideal. I cannot tell you the number of times it has fallen over or crashed to the floor of my vehicle. It is definitely not the ideal way to treat your [...]
