After buying a few duds, I finally found a good iPhone windshield/dashboard car mount.
When you insert your phone into the iOttie HLCRIO102 One Touch Windshield Dashboard Universal Car Mount Holder, a push button gets depressed which will cause small plastic jaws to secure the phone in place. It works well most phone cases. A couple of side buttons will release the phone. The mount rotates easily from portrait to landscape and the foot sticks very well thanks to a vacuum lever.
Beyond the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5, it seems it’ll work with iPhone, Android & Blackberry phones:
- iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4S
- Samsung Galaxy S3/S2
- HTC One/8X/8S
- Nokia Lumia 925/928/920
- Blackberry Q10 & Z10
- LG Optimus G/Nexus 4
- Motorola Droid RAZR/MAXX/HD
A larger version, the iOttie HLCRIO101 One-Touch XL will work with Phablets and large phones:
- Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note2, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Mega5.8
- HTC DROID DNA
