Was looking to mount my phone, but did not want to try to clip it to the vent louvers, they break, and it blocks the air.

Found a really clean looking mount, but it was $85 !!! and it blocked the vent too.

So, found a nice one that works well, see my web site: http://www.elmassian.com/electronics-aamp-gadgets/vehicles/fiat-500e/phone-sound-electronics

Is that a Galaxy S5? How is vibration. I have been considering this too since my phone slides around so much.

If you do wind up reading the link I provided, it says it is my Samsung Note 3, bigger than an S5... no vibration since the long arm is lying on the dash. Works great.

I just purchased a Koomus K2 Smartphone Car Mount on Amazon for $14.99. It is adjustable and fits my iPhone 6+ perfectly. The spring loaded clamp is adjustable to fit virtually any current smartphone on the market.

How far away is your cell phone? That is a short mount, and due to the angle of the windshield, the phone must be very far away, and also blocking your vision out the front window.

Can you provide a picture of where you put this?

It took me a long time to find a mount that did not further obstruct the forward vision nor my air vent.

"CD slot mount" Yep, me too.

nGroove Snap 3

$26, uses a magnetic pad. Works great with my Otterbox Commuter and Samsung Galaxy S2.

I've always found the vent "blades" to be a bit fragile... that and obstructing the airflow are things I wanted to avoid.

Anyone consider 3d printing a custom mount? For me, the ideal location would be in front of the ac controls. It could have some sort of flip up option to get access to the controls etc.

Greg I felt same way, but my smart phone is really light and I have used this device on a dozen makes of rental cars in addition to my own cars and never had a problem. It does divert some airflow. I like that it is temporary, and does not attach to the windshield. The CHP where I live pull people over for stuff like that because they are bored.

Nice feature allows this to mount via the included disc and also the small removeable plug on the side allows it to connect to any standard camera mount so it could be connected to a tripod. It secures well enough to be a single hand operation to place and remove the phone which is also nice.
