Texting and driving is extremely dangerous. We have all seen the commercials, watched the laws get passed, and heard horrible stories on the news. But what a lot of people don't realize is that just by picking up your phone to check who texted you, or to look at the google map app, you are causing a major distraction.
In Massachusetts reading or sending a text is breaking the law. Yet it is so difficult for us to ignore it when we see our phone light up, hear the ding, or hear the vibrate. That is why we are told to keep them away or off. But I know that many of us use our smartphones for music in the car, I know I do. Which makes it difficult to ignore those beeps and vibrates.
Even using Siri can be difficult because you have to press and hold that center button in order for it to activate. That 30 second process could end your life.
That is why I have been wanting a mount for my smartphone. It makes it a lot easier to use siri and the radio, but it also keeps me from grabbing at my phone in the cup holder, glancing, and then putting it back. (A 45 second but deadly process.) I also use the google maps feature a lot because I get easily lost. Using this map feature is hard when I have to hold it and drive at the same time. It is also pretty dangerous.
So I have been in desperate need of something to hold my phone up for me. That is why I was so excited when I got the chance to review this awesome phone mount!
There are a ton of really cool features of this product that I like. The first thing is that it inserts into the CD player. This is convenient for me because I don't really use CDs. I also love that it isn't sticking to my windshield because I know that my old GPS used to always fall off, it also blocks a portion of the road and creates blind spots! Those are two things that I would really like to avoid with my phone mount because my phone is fragile and blind spots are really inconvenient (and dangerous by the way). So when I saw that this mount wouldn't create a blind spot, and secured tightly I was extremely impressed.
I also love that this mount adjusts to the size of the phone. I currently have the iPhone 6. In order to open it up to the right size I simply pressed a button and the mount widened for my phone. I then placed my phone in the mount pressed in the sides and voila! It fit perfectly! It also has little pegs that hold the phone up from the bottom so that it doesn't slide out!
The mount is adjustable so that you can change the angle it is at, the rotation, anything! It is a super versatile mount.
Now when I am driving I can press the siri button quickly and then talk to Siri without needing my hands at all. I can also quickly glance at a phone call or text without taking my hands or eyes off the wheel!
I have been in love with this product ever since I got it and can't imagine ever getting rid of it. I use it every time I'm in my car. It is an automatic thing now when I get in. I sit down put my keys in the ignition put my phone in the mount then I put my seatbelt on and I head out!
I highly recommend this mount for anyone who uses their phone for navigation, radio, or tends to peek at their screen when they are driving! It is a great gift for a tech lover or a teenager! I personally believe it makes a huge difference in driving safety and convenience! Check it out here!
