    After receiving my Magellan Premium Car Kit for my iPhone, I wasn't happy with the suction cup or dashboard mounts. I started searching for a versatile and OEM looking mounting option to give it a more integrated / permanent look. Luckily for me, I found KUDA mounts that gave me everything I wanted and more.

    KUDA mounts are possibly the ultimate mounting solution for practically any mobile electronic device. Check out this installation overview video of a Kuda mount and Magellan Premium Car Kit into my 2009 Ford Focus SEL. I couldnt believe the overall quality, fit, finish, and factory appearance offered by such a mounting base.

    And for those of you who were looking for an "anti-theft" type solution for your Magellan Premium Car Kit, this might fit the bill. Enjoy! :D

    Thanks for sharing this Shane and was very intrigued as they make a mount for my car but not the same interior color.

    Just a heads up, I also ordered a mount for my Volvo XC90, and they didn't have my interior color listed on their site for a particular mount. Once I called them, they informed me that they have ALL colors, and it would just be a matter of a week to get the custom ordered mount.

    I would suggest contacting them, and inquiring about your specific application. They are super cool to deal with, and they always go above and beyond to help.

    I hope this helps. Have a great day. :)

    Thanks for the info. I've already invested a ProClip mount for my car.

    How's the ball mount of the Kuda? Is it rubbery like the original ball or smooth as plastic?

    It's actually a combination of both. It is comprised of a smooth hard plastic ball with a rubbery center. It's almost like the ball has a groove notched out of the center, all the way around the ball, and a rubber o-ring was placed in the notch around the ball. Make sense?

    It seems to be a brilliant ball mount design, as I haven't had any issues with movement or any other problems. I'd highly recommend this kit. ProClip is nice, but I prefer the more "factory/OEM" look that KUDA offers with the leather wrapped mounting bases.

    It's amazing how much more "finished" something as simple as a mount can make your car look. I'm loving this mount more and more everyday!

    Anybody else have a KUDA mount?

    Cheers! :)

    You got it guys, glad I could help! :D
