Best Vent Mount for a Smartphone

Been looking around for a low profile, sleek, vent mount but never had much success. Also didn't want to pay $60.00+ dollars for some of the solutions I found here and on the web.

I ran across this product in the Apple Store the other day for around $25.00 and decided to try it out. It works with all vent types, is fully adjustable and meets my wish list above. I'm really happy with it. Works perfectly, keeps the phone stable enough to use while it's in the holder and doesn't look junky when there's no phone installed.

I took a few pics. The one of the dash is pretty much what I see from the driver's position. I have to move my head a bit to see some of the Ford info on the left side of the screen but it's no big deal. This position lets me see the road and the phone at the same time.

I use the iPhone for navigation a lot more than I use the car's system (got tired of re-inputting waypoints after every update) so this is perfect for me.

Naw, it will work with pretty much any phone. It expands.

I love how sleek and small that mount is, but there is no way I could live with that vent turned off permanently.

I really miss the humongonamous console in my Yukon. Had enough room for everything and then some.

On the Focus with the climate set to auto, there's never any air coming from those vents anyway. Bet you don't miss the fill-up bills though.
