I have been using a vent mount to hold my phone up. At times it can be very annoying but of course with all these new laws you have to mount your phone somewhere in your car. When I came across theis universal phone mount for the dash I had to try it. It is amazing and the fact that my phone fits into it with the case on it is just a complete win with me. I do not have to worry about my phone falling when I turn or jumping with a sudden stop. I can mount this stand exactly how I want it and not worry about the passengers seeing everything going on in my phone. If I want them to see something then I would have to tell them to remove the phone from the the mount so that they can see the screen, which it is perfectly legal for them to handle the phone. I thing it is pefectly made for the matter of you do not have to break down your phone for it to fit into the phone holder and there are no adjustable levers. That lets you know it was designed for you phone to lay in there exactly as it is. Score! Definitely have been recommending to friends and people whom ride my hubby van.
