More drivers than ever are using their cell phones while they drive. This can become a dangerous hazard to their driving if they are holding the cell phone in their hands. Fortunately, there is now a solution to this problem and it is the car phone holder. The car mount attaches to the dashboard next to your steering wheel and can hold your phone while you drive. That way you won’t need to hold the phone with your hands and increase your risk of getting into an accident by not having your hands on the steering wheel instead.
Now you might be asking yourself, “Wouldn’t it be easier to just put the phone away while driving and not use it at all?” Believe it or not, there are many benefits to having a cell phone in the car. With all of the app technology associated with phones these days, they can actually help you in your driving. For example, there are map apps that give you driving directions and aerial views of your current location. If you are lost in the car then having a map screen mounted in front of you will come in very handy. It will also come in handy if you feel the urge to send a text message to someone. Of course, it is never recommended that you send text messages while driving. But if you are going to do it anyway then at least do it with the car mount so you don’t have to look down while texting. Your peripheral vision will stay on the road if you text while the phone is held by the holder of the car mount. As a result, you will greatly reduce your chances of getting into an accident.
Most cell phone holders with car mounts can be purchased for less than $100. These holders are available for all the newest smartphone models and operating systems. There are iPhone holders, Android holders, Windows holders and even tablet holders. The best part is the car mounts are easy to attach to your dashboard. All you have to do is clip the car mount into the seams of your dashboard. Then you take a simple screwdriver and screw the holder to the car mount. After that, you attach the smartphone into the holder and adjust the grip with the knob. It really won’t take you more than a minute or two to set the whole thing up.
