I usually prefer having it to the right of the steering well tbf, 1 as I'm right handed and 2 as it means my eyes are still on the road and quick glancing at my phone doesn't mean completely removing my eyes from the road
Although I usually use a Brodit, this time I wanted an option that would work with various cars and phones so bought this mount for my 6S Plus. I prefer to have my phone quite high up so I don't need to look down to see the screen; this mount fits into the CD slot and, unlike so many of this type, you can easily insert the phone one handed. http://www.amazon.co.uk/EXOGEAR-Exo...id=1449337734&sr=1-2-catcorr&keywords=exogear
That looks interesting. I have a 6 Plus and want to find a way of mounting it in my Mk6 Golf that isn't too low down and not attached/blocking one of the vents as I keep hearing horror stories of those Kenu Airframe ones breaking the vent slats. Do you have any pics of yours installed and in action? Can it be installed and then pivoted to have the phone facing the driver no matter the position? Is it easily turned from landscape to portrait? Does it feel sturdy and secure when holding the phone whilst driving over say speed bumps etc. where the whole car moves?
When I am in the UK I use this mount and find it very good, asnearly as stable as a Brodit even over speed bumps and much better than the Kenu style mounts I have also tried. It can be installed and then pivoted, there is a ring you can easily loosen while it is installed that lets you swivel the phone to the exact angle you prefer, see below. I have had no problem when going over even the biggest speed bumps with my IP6 Plus and now the 6S Plus. I am abroad at the moment and driving a Citroen C4 which has the CD slot very low down making it difficult to see the screen and the road as well as my flip case interfering with the gear stick. This is why there is a Brodit mount installed as well - this only arrived yesterday. Hope this helps.
It looks like it would work great, just that the part that goes into the CD player looks very small and would appear to not have much anchorage. It looks like it could come out very easily or fall forward with the weight of the phone on it. Perhaps it's just me, but that's how it seems!
I assure you it is firmly secured in place and doesn't feel at all unsafe when holding my iPhone 6S Plus in a Vaja leather case. I have used it in 2 cars now and it has never come loose, either from the CD slot or the phone from the mount. In my opinion the mount itself is very solid and well made, not a flimsy piece of plastic like I was half expecting it to be. Anyway, here are some more photos, and of course if you buy from Amazon and aren't happy, you can always return it. I have tried every type of mount available, and for me the two that stand out from the crowd are the Brodit and this one.
