I’m usually wedging my iPhone in the odd nook or cranny of my dashboard or center console to make my GPS map visible when on a trip. So far, I have refused to pay for the pricey car mounts that would provide a better hold and view of my iPhone.
Enter the $2 DIY mount.
Talk about simple and cheap. And, it’s totally adjustable for different cars and phones. Nice.
If only everyone acknowledged that this mount should be used for your iPhone’s (or whatever phone) GPS functionality. This is NOT for watching movies while in traffic.
