Handsfree with Cell Phone Dash Mounts

Why use a cell phone dash mount


Do you find that the accessories are (almost) as exciting as the device itself? A cell phone dash mount could fit this description. Cell phones are not built to slide around your car. Cell phone cases are great but if yours is like mine - safety belts sure get in the way. Wireless headsets are a must while driving but even they do not control the cell phone itself. Save the stress and give your cell phone a home away from home.

Some dash mounts are made for specific phones. Others are called universal - meaning that many different cell phones can be used with the same mount. Some are OEM (original equipment) and aftermarket (3rd party) cell phone dash mounts. The aftermarket products are typically less expensive and usually just as well made. In fact, some aftermarket products have been thought out better due to customer feedback.

PDA phones with GPS receivers are good candidates for a dash mount. Their touchscreen needs to be within reach in order to enter the navigational information. It is preferable that you pull over before attempting to physically use your phone. Then once the GPS screen is activated sit back and enjoy the ride.

There are several different ways that cell phone dash mounts attach to your car. Many snap into the car dash vents. There are even mounts that seem to magically cling to your dash. Some use suction cups and others use some type of adhesive. Before I would put adhesive on my dash I would consider other options such as a windshield mount. I do not talk about the windshield mount much but many users like them. My concern for those is if the suction cup turns loose from heat or cold conditions.

Charging your cell phone is easy and convenient while it is attached to a dash mount. Since we are all pressed for time - multitasking is a good thing.

      THANK YOU! I didn't know about these - and now I'm going to buy two. One for me and one for my wife! She is always digging around looking for her phone - What a great gift.

      I would like to have one of these handy gadgets. I'm always losing my phone in between the seats.
