As better apps are made for smart phones, it is becoming less necessary for the geographically-stunted of us to shell out on a proper Sat Nav, as it's quite easy to do the job on your phone instead. And now that screens are getting so large, there's no problem with having to squint at a tiny screen as you try to make your way down the road. But one thing you will need is a good car phone mount that will keep your phone in place, safely and in an easily readable position.
One problem a lot of people reported having with many holders on the market is that their positioning in the car can be at best awkward and at worst potentially dangerous. Mounts that stick to the windscreen can distract the driver and block the view of the road at vital moments, and air vent holders not only block the vent itself but are also not very stable and can flop around all over the place. A new solution to the problem has been posed in the form of the Dash Genie, which is the world's first suction-based dashboard holder. The Genie is designed to cling tightly to your dashboard without the need for adhesive and will not leave behind any sticky marks.
The Dash Genie can be attached to the dashboard with the use of a simple suction cup which should then keep your phone tightly in place, whether you're hurtling over speed-bumps or swinging around corners. It's made of an innovative material that's super-sticky, so you can just plonk your phone on it an off you go.
You can display your phone in either portrait or landscape, and tilt the holder itself, so that you ensure the best position to read your Sat Nav from it. Because it sticks to the dashboard, it will not restrict your view so it provides a safer alternative to windscreen-based car phone holders .
