I had that one before. The part that connects to the arm is broke. Also it doesnt rotate 360 its only rotate 180 to the right and 180 to the left. When I used a thiker case with it. It bearly grabs onto the phone.I'd recommend getting this:
It docks any phone with any case. I currently have this in my car and still using that.
I wish they make all the mounts that fit with cases.Igreenberg said:
Depends on the case... According to ProClips they make one that works, "For most common Silicone and Shell cases. Including the 2nd Gen. Apple Bumper and OtterBox Cases."
I don't know about the OP, but Mountek would not work for me. Due to the use of the CD tray, the mount/phone would block too many controls (some important) and possibly the radio/sync display. However, it would work in my Wife's care as the CD is at the top and there is nothing above it that it would block. So it depends on the vehicle and whether or not you use your CD tray.Look into the Mountek... it mounts on the CD drive of your car radio, which I find to be a better location than the dash or the windshield. It may obstruct some of your radio controls, but this is a non-issue in my car since I have steering wheel mounted controls. It worked with my Otterbox Commuter, so it should work with any other case you have.
They have adjustable mounts for use with cases.
It's impossible to guarantee compatibility with all cases out there given the range of dimensions of cases.I wish they make all the mounts that fit with cases.
I've never cared for ProClip's vehicle mounts as they tend to rely on friction and double sided tape. I've always use Panavise's brackets which securely mount to the vehicle and have mounting holes compatible with ProClip's.I started out with a proclip but it never really fit the way it was supposed to in my particular vehicle. The phone holder was great but not the car mount.
I've used ProClip mounts mainly for GPS in all my cars for well over 6 years. The GPS receiver needs to be able to pick up signal from the GPS satellites which isn't necessarily the same thing as line of sight. Some materials that obstruct vision do not obstruct GPS reception.I went with a dashboard mount because Navigon only works with GPS and so requires a clear line of sight to the sky. I wasn't convinced that Proclip or Montek would do the same. Both look like they'd work in my car otherwise (Honda Element 2005).
I will also vouch for these guys. I have this one:
cheaper on amazon as well ... i am thinking about getting this one ... wish it had a vent clip as well
I saw the demo video on their website, and they showed the mount in "reversible" mode where the suction cup was mounted on the iPhone and the clips were placed on the vent.cheaper on amazon as well ... i am thinking about getting this one ... wish it had a vent clip as well
Can still highly recommend this holder. With the soft 'smartpad' removable disk (between dash and holder)mounted to my black dash very securely. Traveled 209 miles and still firmly attached.I and others found this one very good....$28... and well reviewed car phone holder (and works not only for iPhone). 299 positive reviews on Amazon.
The important thing is that it comes with a 'Smartpad' that allows it to be stuck (temporarily) to the dashboard, OR the window.
