Car and Motorcycle Mounts for iPhones Droids and Smartphones using an Otterbox

We love the Otterbox.  Best cases made.  They are available for the iPhone, Blackberry, Droid and many Smartphones.  These cases deliver the best protection for your device but at the expense of bulk.  They will definitely add weight and size to your device.  it will feel bulky at first but you will quickly get used to it.  One additional benefit is the phone will no longer just slide out of your pocket on its own.  That is because the Otterbox has an exterior made of non slip rubber.  And don’t forget the greatest benefit of all.  Your phone will not break if you drop it.

As we mentioned, the Otterbox provides superior protection as the expense of size.  Most car and motorcycle mounts are custom made to contour to the size of your unprotected bare device.  So what to do if you want to use it in your car or motorcycle?  You will need an expandable cradle.  We like the cradles that expand at the sides at the push of a button.  These cradles paired with suction, vent, lighter and cup holder mounts will grip your device firmly and place it at an excellent location for using your phone as a GPS or MP3 player.

Blackberry Car and Motorcycle Mounts

We decided to write an article on Blackberry car and motorcycle mounts.  Not sure why we didn’t write one before.  We sell a large number of Blackberry mounts on our MountGuys site.  Blackberry mounts feature universal and custom cradles.  The difference is that a custom cradle will have better allowances for unique features such as a camera or buttons.  Not every Blackberry is made the same.  So when offered, always go with a custom cradle.

The most popular models are the Bold series, Tour, Curve and Storm.  Yes, there are custom cradles available for all of these models.

There are mounts for almost anywhere you need them.  In the car:  floor, sun visor, windshield, vent, cup holder and dash.  On the motorcycle:  handlebar, clutch, reservoir cover, mirror.  Want to put your Blackberry on a boat?  Yup, got you covered!

We also have been rolling out a series of powered mounts that have been very popular.  The mounts consolidate the charger and mount all in one.  This uses your lighter as the base for the mount.  Not only does it serve two purposes, but when you think about it, it’s at an excellent location and easy to reach.  As to bad guys looking to steal your Blackberry, it’s out of sight, so makes it easy to conceal.
