iGotTech Car Mount Review

In my new car there's not really any good place to put my cell phone if I don't have pockets or if my phone keeps popping out of my pocket.  Austin had me put it in the cup holder but my arm often bumps my phone.  So when I saw the opportunity I jumped on it and requested iGotTech's car mount to review.  Once I find a car charger that works for my phone we can keep this up for when we go to visit my family for the holidays.  I think it would make things easier viewing the maps when we travel between both sides of the family or if we make a side trip to some place like German Village.

iGotTech is so confident you're going to love the Sticky Suction Stand that they are offering it with a ridiculous double guarantee. If you have ANY problems with your Sticky Suction Stand for 2 years simply let them know and they will refund every penny of your purchase AND send you a brand new unit free of charge.

The little instruction guide that came with the car mount said that the suction cup would stick to any smooth surface.  I didn't want to have anything on my window to block my view of traffic.   I tried to get the suction to work on my dash board since there is plenty of room.  I kept trying and trying but it didn't work.  So I put Austin to the task of trying.  Neither of us could get it to stick but we're not really sure why.  Perhaps a car's interior isn't smooth enough.  I was bummed my only option was to stick the car mount on my window.

Where I wanted the car mount to go on the dash board.

Where I had to put the car mount - right under my rear view mirror.

It took me a couple of times to figure out how hard I needed to push my phone onto the sticky pad.  I was surprised at how easily my phone stuck.  I barely touched it to the pad and it was stuck, or so I thought.  Within a couple of minutes it fell off while I was driving.  (At least it fell into the passenger seat floor instead of under my feet!)  When I got to the next stoplight I picked my phone back up and pushed a little harder that time to attach my phone.  That worked just fine and dandy!

If the sticky part loses stickiness, just use water to wash it and it will recover its adherent property like new.

I haven't had the car mount long enough for the sticky pad to lose its stickiness.  Clean up sounds easy enough so I plan to try rinsing it off whenever I start to have trouble attaching my phone.

This car mount would make a great Christmas gift for yourself, friends, or family.  The iGotTech Car Mount is found exclusively on Amazon.

If you manage to get your car mount to stick to your dash board please leave me a comment or send me a message to let me know your secret!
