Having my phone mounted properly in my car is important to me, as it helps me drive safer. Not only does it help prevent distractions while on the road, but it allows me to use my phone as a GPS unit and lets me hear conversations better while on the road. An important factor of a car mount is how and where it is mounted, as this can also affect your driving. Read on to find out what I think about this car mount.
This review is on the iOttie iTap Magnetic CD Slot Car Mount. After using multiple products from iOttie, I can attest to their quality craftsmanship. As this device, their other car mounts are very well designed and are sturdy. This particular cell phone holder gets mounted to the CD slot in my car. Being that it is mounted here, there is no obstruction of the windshield and I have easy access to music on my phone.
I love the magnetic design as it makes it so much easier and faster to mount than traditional phone holders. The magnet has a rubber coating which helps my phone not fall off. I can also rotate the mount to an angle that suits my taste. Even though my phone has a rubber back I can still attach the magnet to it, thanks to the two included metal plates. One metal plate is self adhesive and can stick to the outside of my phone, and this is the one I use. I have been using this metal plate which came with another iOttie mount for over six months, and it is still sticking well. The other metal plate included is slightly larger and is made for placing in your phone case.
While driving, the mount doesn’t shake, thanks to the bracket that was included in the package. I placed the bracket under the lever that tightens the mount in the CD slot, and it works wonders. Another thing I like about this CD slot type mount is the fact that it works with a lever as opposed to having to turn knobs or screws to tighten it.
I received this mount at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest review, and these are my unbiased thoughts on the product.
