DashView Universal Car Mount for All Phones
just about all smart phones have a GPS built into them, Cygnett have
released a clever device called the DashView Universal Car Mount
which basically allows you to mount a wide variety of phones onto
your windscreen. However apart from phones that use GPS, the device
can even be used to attach MP3 players to your windscreen but where
we found the DashView Universal Car Mount most useful is for display
GPS capable devices.
With that said, the DashView Universal Car Mount is compatible with
most phones that include all iPhones, BlackBerry Phones, HTC phones,
Nokia Phones, iPod Touch, MP3 Players and relatively all smart
devices. The design of this product is also quite sturdy because you
don't want the product to fall from your windscreen, especially with
your iPhone 4 or other device in it.
In relation to installation, the product simply attaches to your
windscreen thanks to the high-grip suction cup which also contains
an adjustable arm in order to find the perfect placement for your
smart device. Cygnett boast that the product is capable of sticking
to your window in a variety of different weather conditions and
unfortunately we could not test all weather options. We did test the
item on a 30 degrees day and it remained mounted to our windscreen.
Although users should be wary because some phones like the iPhone
3GS do not like to be placed in the sun for long periods of time.
Another aspect that I like about the DashView Universal is that you
don't need to remove your case from your Phone as the adjustable
grip mechanism basically holds a variety of shapes and sizes in
place simply by squeezing the arm around it. We did test this item
on our iPhone 4S and when our battery was running low from GPS use,
we simply connected the USB cable into the bottom of the phone that
then connected to car. It's great that you have access to just about
all controls on your phone when mounted in the DashView.
With a 2 years manufacturers warranty, the DashView Universal is the
perfect car mount for just about all mobile phones and allows you to
transform your smart device into a professional GPS system. In
relation to iPhones or HTC phones, the product can even swivel from
portrait to landscape which is definitely a bonus. Best of all, once
you have finished, you simply just unclip your smart phone from the
device and take it with you which prevents theft or overheating.
