    Has anyone found a dash mount they really like?

    I had a magnetic mount for my old phone I really liked, but with the curved, bamboo back on my MXPE, there's not a good way to mount the metal plate for it. I've decided I like the vent mounts, mostly 'cause it puts the phone in a better location that window/dash, which are further away. I'm also looking at CD mounts, tho I haven't tried one of those yet. I would like to find one that doesn't interfere with either the power/volume buttons on the side, or the headphone/usb ports on top/bottom. I'm just not seeing any really good solutions out there.

    I like this mount from iOttie.

    http://www.amazon.com/iOttie-Holder-...cUvbUpU4960531

    It grips firmly on the sides and doesn't block the power port. I don't use the buttons when it's in the mount so I've never noticed if they are blocked.

    I bought an "exogear exomount touch CD" a few days ago. I love it. Stays in place and can be adjusted easily. I was not about to put a magnet on my computer, this mount uses arms with rubber to grip.
    Expensive but great.

    The arms on the QuGi look a bit small. Is it able to hold your phone steady when you're tapping on the phone?

    I'll keep an eye on that to see if the price drops. You know your phone memory isn't affected by magnets, right?

    I have a Kenu AirFrame+ (Kenu - Kenu) that I like. It fits today's wider phones. I also have the original Airframe (no "+") and it will barely fit a naked MXPE. The plus works fine.

    Heh, I just put that on my Amazon wishlist after noticing it in a Lifehacker best-of list. In the video they have, it looks like it's pretty easy to put the phone in & take it out with one hand, but one Amazon reviewer said you needed 2 hands to put it in. Do you use 2 hands to get the phone in & out?

    I just got this one a week ago. I was worried that the MXPE would be too big or heavy. This thing handles like a champ. Only $10.

    I know taking it off with one hand is easy. I think I can put it in one-handed but I'll have to try later and get back to you.

    Cool, I had the "[UPGRADED COMPONENT]" version of that on my list. My concern with that one was if the arms hit the volume buttons. Do you use the bottom support arms? Does the right side arm press on the volume down button, or does it contact below the buttons?

    Also, if the Kenu seems to be too loose in the vent turn the connector 90 degrees. One way is good for thicker grill blades, the other for thinner.

    For me, it stays steady. But I hardly tap the phone (thank you Moto Voice).

    I've used Pro-Clip in several vehicles and have had great experiences. I only had to order a new holder for my MotoXP as the base part is designed for your vehicle. Pricey yes but they work great and are very solid.

    I have a Kenu Airframe laying around but all it does is flop around on your heater vent and the phone hits the trim, meh.

    This. I've used ProClip for years, a solid solution. And easy path as mentioned when you change phones. It also hold the phone equally well either in portrait or landscape mode.

    Yikes, pricey is right! A custom mount for your specific phone/car combo is cool, but $110 is way too much IMO.

    It was right at $80 including shipping/tax to California for the center mount ($30) and phone holder ($35). It's painful yeah, but worth it for long term.

    It might be possible to put it in one-handed but it's not easy.

    Also, mine doesn't "flop around" unless I use the thick-blade setting instead of the thin-blade setting on the air vent side.

    I'm also a ProClip fan. A bit pricey, but a very clean look. Here's mine with my old Note 2. The same holder worked for my Note 4 and now also works with my Moto X Pure wearing a slim case. Cost me $65 for both parts. Car Phone Holders and Dashboard Phone Mounts - ProClip USA
