This review is from: Patriot Memory FUEL iON Charging Car Mount PCGCM
Pros: This thing is great. Magnetic base grabs and hold phone really well. You can easily rotate the phone to portrait or landscape. The magnetic base has "stops" to hold the phone in either position. I love not having to worry about plugging a cable into the phone to charge it. Simply put the phone on the base and that's it. Phone is held in place very securely, no worries about it coming off.
The suction cup base is very tacky and strong. You can put this on almost anything!
Cons: the "Goose Neck" isn't flexible. the only articulation is the ball joint that the charge base attaches to the "goose neck" However, the charge base uses a standard mount. I actually had a different mount in my car that isn't a suction cup and the charge base fit right on it.
Even with the limited articulation of the goose neck, this suction cup mount is one of the better I've seen produced.
Other Thoughts: The Fuel iON wireless charging system is the best I've seen so far. I'm going to be getting the desktop stand, charge pad and the cable. The case for my Samsung S5 was just slightly thicker than the case I had on it before switching. I've found other little things about the case that I also really like. There is a magnet in the case and I've been able to stick my phone to my refrigerator, and I'm sure there might be other places that it will be handy to just stick your phone.
I recommend this product.
Pros: Great little Action Camera for the price ($200 with accessories). I like the LCD screen when mounting to get it aligned. The App also works well for this and was pretty easy to setup on my phone.
It's nice that this comes with some mounts. The camera has the standard screw mount, so you can also buy additional mounts based on your needs.
Cons: Can't really think of any right now. This is my first Action Camera and thought it was a better value than Go Pro. This has been a pretty good purchase. I'll need to use it more to see if I can find any flaws.
Oh, I would like to see more mounting solutions, specific to this camera, but it does have the standard screw mount.
Other Thoughts: If you don't want to spend the money on a Go Pro, you should give this a try. Plus it's already waterproof where you need to buy the Go Pro waterproof case.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Bracketron Black Universal Bike Mount RWA-219-BL
Pros: Good Build quailty. Come with everything you need. Seems to be sold and would work great for a phone or GPS holder on the handlebars of a bike or on a sort of bar that is 1/2" to 3/4" round. May even go bigger.
Cons: Okay, these cons are specific to my application and not related to the product. I do think it's important for people to know that the ball joint is NOT THE STANDARD SIZE FOR MOST GPS/PHONE MOUNTS.
So why is this important. I was hoping to use the bar mount only. I have a two other device holders that I was planning to attach to this mount. When I got it and noticed that the ball mount is significantly larger than what is considered the standard ball mount, I immediately knew it wouldn't work for my purpose.
I understand why the ball is larger. It give a much more secure mount for a heavier GPS so the design is solid for using this as it is intended and with the hold that come with it. However, if you plan to use any other device holder that uses a standard Ball mount, this will not work.
