Good Tech Can Be Simple
30 May 2015
I must go through more than my share of car phone holders a year, changing out phones, they break, or as I travel I forget them in a rental. Expensive or cheap to be honest there is no more ugly, and useless form of tech (if you can even call it that).Suction cup on a windscreen some form of bracket to hold the phone.. nothing more to say … but sound the trumpets..
Logitech has introduced the +drive phone mount, it has no brackets but instead it locks on with a suction cup (or permanent 3M is so inclined) but there is no bracket to hold the phone. Instead it gives you a flat small square of metal that adheres to your phone case (between the phone and the case) and the strong magnet on the phone holder then holds even the largest phone well in place.
It works so well on a recent scary mountain drive in California (I live in Australia) that I just stuck it on a recorded the drive no problem. Instead of the metal plate you can buy a special magnetic case but I prefer my own. This plate even sticks to heavy grade silicone as is my case.
Well done Logitech – RRP is around $40 USD / $50 AUD
