Thanks. If I'm not happy with my cheapie magnetic mount, that will probably be my solution.
I'm curious, how far away from you would you want your phone to be. Reason I ask is because I have this I.Tek universal dashboard mount
which would stay on the dash and not be so close up like using a goose neck type of holder.
It does the job well and I've gone through numerous unit such as the..
sit on dash type, (leaves residue if using adhesive, or slides across dash)
vent type, (occupies vent, and if used in winter, overheats phone)
cup holder type (occupies middle cup-holder space and not in direct eye contact)
windshield/goose neck type (falls off windshield, wobbles, unsightly)
It wasn't until I finally got to the I.Tek and found that it works the best (for me at least).
Its heavy and doesn't slide around the dash.
It holds my 5.3" Galaxy Note Edge (with case) very well in 3 different landscaped positions. It also held up my 6.3" Galaxy Mega (without case).
The upper lid/clamp part acts like a sun shade for your phone. (and if you put a cardboard or index card on top, the lid clamps it down and makes it shade too.
It has a grip like silicone pad on the underside of it that allows it to be mounted on the dash if one desires. I didn't remove the tape on the pad since I like to move it around on the dash and it allows me to place the phone in it much easier.
The unit has a bean bag like bottom which actually keeps it in place and really doesn't move much even on these NYC pothole laced streets. But of course if one were to use this off-road or on a more bumpy trail then I guess attaching it to the dash permanently using the sticky silicone pad might be best.
Added bonus: When not placing your phone/gps in the unit, it is small and streamlined enough to look like it is part of your vehicle if left on the dashboard.
The only issue with it is that you have to squeeze the small level on the back to open up the clamp/jaw every time to insert your phone or GPS unit.
alos depending on phone used you may need to move the phone a bit so the unit doesn't hit the volume controls (or use a phone case).
But that Celgo one is nice too since it really brings the phone up close.
