Iphone 5 Mounts
Posted 22 September 2012 - 07:57 PM
I'm no doubt jumping the gun and not being too patient but I'm after suggestions on mounting kits that'll hold an iPhone 5. Had a dig on eBay but not sure of many of them. I have been using a Brodit ProClip. Very good but pricey and the new phone flops about in the existing mount so a new one is needed. Don't like suction/windscreen mounts as they tend to wobble about a bit so any suggestions on dash, a-pillar or vent mounted kits would be great. Thanking you all :-)

I'm pretty sure brodit won't be long getting a mount out compatible with the 5.
+1 Brodit are best on the market and it won't take them long to release one.

Well, here it is:
Currently only in the prototype stage, the assembly is designed to fold away and slide neatly inside the storage area.
The phone is held in place with a powerful Tetrax phone mounting magnet.

The mount arrived today, so I promptly screwed the base-plate to my Brodit A pillar mount and attached the phone mount to the base-plate via the twist and lock suction cup (the mount will also attach directly to glass). The mount secures surprisingly firm and holds the iPhone very securely and can be rotated to portrait or landscape mode with ease.
So far so good.

Still got to wait for the charging cradle before I purchase mine though!
That may be a while as the lightning connector has an id chip that Apple are slow to release details of.
Some Chinese sellers are claiming they have working leads coming soon (the leads they currently have for sale will not work), but I am not going to risk buying any as my genuine lead became faulty and nearly damaged my PC and iPhone due to the id chip in the lead becoming short circuit. Apple replaced the lead with no quibble but if a genuine Apple lead could become faulty in less than a week, there is no way I am going risk plugging a cheap alternative connector into my £600 phone and risk voiding the warranty.
