i do not very like to sit in a traffic - i more like to drive whatever i want, and i last year my incomes drops, as so i purchase motorcycle, and be happy with that - expenses drops ( beside of tax and insurance, fuel consumption is bellow 4.5 litres in average, and about 4.2 litres on highway - to 100 km! on car i get no better than 7 - 7.5 litres ), and driving was like a about 20 or 25 years ago, when cars is far less, and rush hours and slow traffic is non-exist. as so my "big" vehicle, for traveeling distances greater than about 10 kilometres is old yamaha xj600 sport-touring motorcycle, with chinese smartphone on android 4.0.
short distances i mostly ride on sport bicycle. thinking about phone splashproof mount to bicycle \ motorcycle. last time i drive with moto and turn on navigation on waze, and be very surprised -voice commands is that aloud, i can hear it even in full-face helmet and with working engine!
thinking also about micro-usb 12v charger and bluetooth headset for full enjoying of that things...;)

very surprised, why another peoples not change their cars to 2 wheelers - bicycles, motorcycles, scooters - i be sure, most of us not really need car with its carrying capacity every day, end even, every week....

2013 Ford Focus Titanium 5-speed

Probably the best car mount I've ever used, and I've used a lot: the Aduro U-Grip Plus. You can insert and remove the phone with one hand, basically you push the phone against one of the spring-loaded grips outward until the phone fits. To remove, just pull the phone out one side at a time. The suction cup is also insane—it stays for weeks at a time, even on the Focus's textured dash, even on a slope! Easy to stick on, too. It comes with an adhesive pad if that doesn't work—but it's pretty unlikely you'll need it, I think.

The only downside is that it's basically impossible not to move the holder around when inserting or removing the phone. It's easy to adjust, though.

My previous mount was very sturdy, but it only had a regular suction cup (albeit a very good one), and it was only adjustable in notches. It was really difficult for the obsessive in me to get it the way I wanted it. It'd stay there once I found it, but if it fell off, it'd take a bunch of readjusting again.

I'll post a night pic later. Waze's night theme matches the Ford's dash pretty well!

I'm using this Arkon mount - it comes with every configuration you need, a windshield suction, suction pad for dashes, and an air vent mount. I leave the vent mount in the wife's '07 Honda Odyssey, and use the dash pad+Suction in my '00 GMC Sierra 1500. The mount is holding a Samsung Galaxy S3 with Android 4.1.2 on T-Mobile. I also purchased a dual USB port charger from Newegg that's no longer available - it has one 1.0 Amp circuit and one 2.1 amp circuit. This works well for running the GS3 and the iPad.

2004 Honda Civic. Can't remember the charger, on my iPhone 4S. I don't use a mount, I use my hand or my lap. It makes it harder for cops to see I'm "texting" when I'm making notes along my drives.

At night. Mostly took this so I could color-match a night theme to my gauge needle color.

- 2001 BMW 330d
- Bluetooth FM transmitter Tunelink auto (very very good stuff to play music or others sounds from your device if you don't have an auxiliary input in your car)
- Iphone 4 with some basic car mount (windsreen or car vents if too much sun)

That looks like a street in Metairie. Somewhere in the Vets/Clearview to Causeway area.
