    Default Moto X: Best low cost car mount?

    Hi, I am looking for a car mount that will give me up/down and left/right adjustment, at least 20-degrees or so.

    Some I have seen look like a chicken carcase strapped to a phone-carrier and then glued to the car.

    Looking for something whit a little grace and style but not costing as much as the car.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks

    I got this one and love it! Even comes with an NFC tag to start iBolt Dock 'N Drive program. I don't know what your idea of low cost is but this one is $39.95 and well worth it as far as I'm concerned:

    Another vote for the Kenu, but maybe it doesn't give as much adjustment as the OP wants?

    I have this one. Works for anything you can fit in it. Phones, GPS, radar detector..... I love RAM products. They are always over built & work excellent.

    I use this on my motorcycle too.

    +1 for the RAM mount. I used one on my motorcycle also. Very sturdy. Very adjustable. Pretty sleek for a universal fit too.

    I've been using these on my last two phones. Please Select Your SlipGrip Holder

    Pefect fit, and the phone slides in and out easily.

    I have one as well and love it. Great build quality, unobtrusive design and super simple to use. It also doubles as a kickstand.

    I might look into one of these for my wife's car. Her windshield is not shaped too well for the dock that I have and mentioned above.

    The thing I like about the RAM mount I posted above is it works for any phone with or without any case. So just because you get a different phone or case you don't have to get a different car dock. It also works in portrait or landscape orientation.

    Thanks everyone, as a result of the link to Amazon that ansextra posted, I found this in the "others bought," section. Now that's what I mean by style and price.
    It's on it's way and will report back if it does not meet expectations.

    Looks like it would cover the headphone jack. That's a deal breaker for me

    I dont usually use mounts but this one was so cheap in price I gave it a shot. I purchased this last December.The way my windshield is angled on my car(Dodge Charger) I got to have an extended arm like it has. It does work better then I thought it would, can be a little bit of a pain when removing phone though. It works with my TPU case.

    You mean you don't have one these? They automatically Pair when in range, no plugs needed.

    Plus, you could always rotate the holder through 180-deg. I never bother to charge when in the truck as the X has such good battery life I only need to charge it overnight on the bed side-table.

    When you use navigation a lot like I do, sometimes you need to charge during the day. Plus, I prefer the direct connection of the headphone jack for the audio quality.

    Based on this thread, ordered a Kenu Airframe to try out and love it. Just ordered a 2nd one for my other car. Simple to use, looks nice and well made. Thanks for the post!

    I'm having a big problem justifying purchasing a case for my X. I don't want to cover it up after I spent all that time deciding on colors... Also, I love the way the phone looks!

    I got a clear TPU case. Protection & can still see its gorgeousness!
