Product Review - ExoMount Touch CD Slot Car Mount
Intriguing idea... excellent execution. I got the ExoMount Touch CD Slot Car Mount for my iPhone to see if it would make for a convenient way to have my iPhone viewable (like for GPS) without having it on the dash and obstructing my vision. In short, it worked flawlessly. The only issue is my wife now wants to "borrow" it for her car.
The ExoMount is designed to fit partially into your CD slot of your car sound system. While it wouldn't work well if you actually used your CD for something like, say... listening to a CD, it's perfect if you don't (like many people these days). The wing nut under the part that goes into the CD slot causes the tabs to flare up and down the tighter you screw it. The result is that it fits snugly into any CD enclosure and won't fall out and damage your phone.
The phone holder is spring-loaded and slides together to hold the phone via pressure. But, given that the whole unit can swivel 360 degrees, you can rotate your phone to either display in a portrait or landscape mode... whatever makes it easiest to work with while you're driving.
When I first saw this, I thought it was an interesting idea, but didn't think it would be without shortcomings of some sort. I was wrong. I absolutely love this phone mount for the car, and it solves a lot of my complaints when it comes to trying to use my iPhone as a GPS unit. Definitely recommended...
