    Product Description:

    Made mostly from high grade aluminium, Ultima is in a class of its own. Its beautiful design compliments today's smartphones and the modern car interior.

    With its locking suction cup lever and extremely strong and quiet clamping mechanism, NKMOS Design Tehcnology has focused on what simply hasn't been working for in car holders. This is how an in car holder should be, accommodating almost any smartphone from the iPhone to the Galaxy Note, it even can hold many stand alone GPS units. This product is all about functionally and quality done in style.

    Includes 2 thickness rubber backing pads. You decide which one you'd like to use for those who have much thicker cases on their phones or who use a very thin case or no case at all.

    The suction cup can also be replaced by the user if needed in the very far future.

    Maximum clamping width is 84mm.

    That's the best looking car mount I've seen. I like the fact the phone is held on the sides. The iPhone 5 has a lot going on with the bottom of the phone.

    I've put their website on my favorites.

    I definitely plan on buying one of these car mounts soon. I have been looking all over Amazon/google for a good car mount for my iPhone. Even to just get the phone out of the way while driving.

    I 100% agree. I haven't seen anything close to being this nice for a car mount. :)

    You will spend that much in the long run buying and replacing cheap $30-$45 models plus cost of shipping from Amazon.com.

    I know it's steep but I also don't mind when I'm getting a quality item. Just saying.

    Suction cup mounts never work for me; after a while they simply detach from the glass and fall from the floor. It also means you'll have a charging cord dangling from the windshield, which is no good either. Any good universal mounts that sit on the dash?

    There's no right or wrong answers here. Just preferences.

    This product isn't just some slap around suction cup added to an iMac stand. It almost is though, lol.

    But $10 mounts are usually crap and $25 and up usually works with no issues except there clunky, huge, not firm to the touch, wobbly, fall off windshield while driving, etc...

    I've used various mounts over the years. I don't mind trying this thing out. Worse case scenario I can return it for refund.

    Better to let everyone know what is out there and if they choose, They can check it out themselves.

    As with any car mount for the iPhone no matter where you place it; It will have cords going in and out on your dashboard.
