Accessory Review: iGrip Universal Fit Sturdy Swivel Mount
At first look, this dash mount was not what I was expected it would be.Â It didn’t appear to be the â€œSturdy Swivel Mountâ€ I was led to believe it was.Â It just seemed too simple and not very, well, sturdy. Nonetheless I decided to put it to the test. I have always been a fan of mounting my devices to my dash, but this was the first time I would mount my phoneÂ on my window.
I have a Garmin GPS with a window mount but I have found that if you donâ€™t â€œremountâ€ (lick the suction cup every so often and stick it back on the window) it falls off in warm weather. That is not the case with the iGrip Bold Custom Fit Sturdy Swivel Mount.Â Much to my delight, I mounted it once and it has stayed in the same place ever since.
The best part of mount is it bracket system. The sides of the mount brackets slide in and out depending on the size of your device.Â There’s padding on each so the device doesn’t damaged or scratched. Another great thing is they are adjustable up and down so you donâ€™t have to worry about hitting camera or volume buttons on the side.Â You’ll find â€œfeetâ€ on the bottom of the bracket that your device rests upon. These are also padded and move so you can access the charging port while mounted.Â Â The entire unit swivels up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right. All that is missing is B, A. Sorry, couldnâ€™t resistâ€¦
This versatility and positioning makes it perfect for reading RSS feeds on the go, checking a quick message or even listening to a podcast.Â Tilt it horizontal and have TeleNav or your favorite GPS app running just like a standalone unit.
All in all, I was very surprised by this mount.Â There’s a lot more to it than you would expect.Â I enjoy having it in my car and Iâ€™m sure you would as well.
