I didn’t know she had the GI Joe Kung-Fu grip. You’ve no doubt noticed that most of the companies that make cell phone peripherals just crap poorly-designed junk out of the lowest-bidder Chinese factory, or even worse, rebrand somebody else’s steaming turd as their own. I’ve gone through a half-dozen mounts from both no-name to brand-name and ended up returning them all.My BMW probably doesn’t help. It’s got a dashboard with a pebbled/textured finish. It’s not perfectly flat. And I drive like a jerk. The latter is a crucial point of failure for mounts with a longer reach that multiply the leverage of a heavy phone on a suction cup. Read: mount (with phone attached) goes flying off to the side, usually into my passenger’s face.I figured this one had physics working in its favor off the bat, being so short (but I was a tad worried about it having the phone out of reach). Turns out that’s not a problem. Neither is the AMAZING grip on the dashboard side. As others mentioned, it’s a suction cup AND an (reusable) adhesive pad. This means it ain’t going nowhere. I’ve verified this with plenty of…brisk driving in both hot and cold climes.Also nice is the simple, fail-proof, spring-loaded holster. It’s a very robust spring so there’s no chance of the phone falling out accidentally, and it doesn’t try anything funny in terms of foam pads or awkward positioning. It’s deep/wide enough to accommodate even a slightly bulky hard case as well.True, it DOES take some practice/effort to insert and remove the phone one-handed. But it’s not impossible, unless you’re an invalid or really, really uncoordinated in which case, you should ask yourself: should you even be driving?That said, this is a very well-buit, well-engineered, simple mount that will hold your phone and not launch itself into someone’s eye socket when taking a freeway offramp at three times the recommended speed. A+ would buy again.

The only one of 4 models I’ve tried that works! I ended up purchasing four different car phone holders before I found one that works – that sticks to my dashboard, holds my IPhone 4, makes it relatively easy, with one hand, to insert the phone and remove it. And it stays stuck to the dashboard. I drive a late model Subaru Outback and after placing and testing the mount in many different locations, I found the most convenient one for me was mounted to the dash on left side of the steering wheel.The three models that would not stick to the dashboard, anywhere I tried, are as follows (I returned them to Amazon without a problem:) The iOttie Windshield Dashboard Car Mount Holder The iOttie Easy Flex2 Windshield Dashboard Car Mount Holder & Desk Stand The Tylt Capio Universal Car MountThe one model that works, and is still working after a month, is the Aduro U-GRIP Universal Dashboard Windshield Car Mount. An added note is that this model comes with an extra grip in case the mount doesn’t adhere well. I did not need to use it. I give it 4 stars because I’ve only had it a month.
