    Default Best car dock for Note 3?

    Hi, i believe the correct name is car dock. Im looking for an hq hands free phone dock for ease of use in the car for general use and of course when using the gps. Im not familiar with these things so i was hoping someone could put me in the right direction.
    Thanks

    I'm using this iBolt one which has a good build quality and you can use their Dock and Drive programma available from the Play store.



    My only complaint is I might have to take some rubber out of the lower left leg so it doesn't press the volume button, and it doesn't yet come with a USB 3.0 plug, but the USB 2 plug works with the Note 3, although it can be tricky to plug in in the dark.

    I use a Mountek. Looking at upgrading to the newer version with the magnet soon.

    i wonder about that one, and the imagnet too. is the magnet strong enough to hold a big phone like the N3 in a case? all the photos show iphones with slim cases on them.

    Just started "test driving" this case that I got on Amazon. Exogear Exomount2. Only been 2 days so jury is still out. It's a universal mount so that's a plus and because the grip is centered it doesn't hit the power/volume buttons (which was one of my concerns with the iBolt). Concern now is stability when pressing on it etc. I'll report back after a few more days.

    I am another pleased iBolt user. I have the new version which allows mounting and charging the S3,S4,and the Notes 2&3. The free iBolt navigation software is also very good.

    I use the ibolt app, the car home ultra app, and the Waze app depending on which features I desire for a given trip. They all have strong points and all are just a little different in their philosophy of what is important to a driver.

    I use the OEM Samsung car dock. Nothing beats the fit and finish of OEM products. It worked great with my S3, Note 2 and now my Note 3.

    I had a really good quality Samsung dock with a sliding USB mount for my Note 1, but they don't do a proper Samsung charging dock for the note 3.

    You can download the iBolt app to use with any car dock - it is free on the Play store - it's called Dock and Drive. I like it because as soon as you dock your phone with the connector it toggles Wi-Fi off, Bluetooth on, and you can set up large icon shortcuts to your music and nav programmes, and direct dials. You can set it so as soon as you undock it it turns off the apps it initiated too. Very convenient.

    I have this, and if you use the flip or s view case, avoid it.. It will compress the s view cover and or flip cover. The two prongs compress against the side of the phone and if you're not careful taking your phone in or out of this mount, scratches may occur.

    This was when I had my gnII.

    I found that as the Note 3 volume button is only 1.5mm wide, if you use a very harp knife and remove the second ridge on the lower left leg support rubber grip then the cradle can no longer affect the volume.

    Perfect, and at some point soon they are going to provide USB3.0 connectivity.

    I have been an iBolt user in the past, and have always been pleased with their products.

    But for my Note 3, I changed over to iOttie because it holds the phone in the portrait position very well, which didn't seem to be the case with the iBolt (based on the pictures I saw).

    I just wrapped my USB charging cord through the back so that it is always handy and in the right spot.

    I also am using this charger to keep the device charged quickly while in the car -

    I agree. The latest iBolt version suitable for the Note 3 holds tighter than a junkyard dog to a bone.

    I mount mine on the windshield. It comes with a sticky pad if you want to mount it in your dash.

    Yeah, the clearing only fits a USB 2.0 cable, but you can use the mount flipped and it still holds the phone just fine.
