ExoMount Ultra by Exogear
Based in Alpharetta, GA. Made in Korea
For dashboard phone mounting, even those dashboards that are textured. MSRP: $29.95 ($24.99 on Amazon)
Unconditional money back guarantee.
1 year warranty. (But I think it should be lifetime.)
👍 Easy to install, even on textured & curved surfaces.
👍 Fits nearly all 3.5” to 6” phones, even those with bulky cases.
👍 Has a nice 360⁰ swivel and an adjustable “arm”.
👍 An extra suction/adhesive pad is included.
👍 Rock solid mounting.
👍 When removed, the suction/adhesive pad leaves no marks or residue.
👍 Mounts at eye-level (dashboard or windscreen). Easier to read than the below dashboard mounts. (See Cons-Major re glare, temperature, visibility, & arthritis.)
🤷♂️ I don’t know how robust the mount will be over time & in the sun. Perhaps that relates to the 1 year warranty?
🤷♂️ Must wash the suction cup periodically.
🤷♂️ Not one-hand operation as claimed.
🤷♂️ It’s a chore to mount and unmount every time entering & exiting the car, so not likely to be done.
🤷♂️ Too bulky for traveling.
🤷♂️ A replacement suction/adhesive pad is $7.95!
👎 Suction lever may be too strong for arthritic hands.
👎 Obstructs the driver’s vision, perhaps dangerously so.
👎 As one’s phone is mounted above the dashboard, it is in direct sunlight and gets unacceptably hot, perhaps even dangerously so, even in cool weather.
👎 Though mounted as suggested, my case’s screen protector caused an unacceptable (dangerous?) glare; resulting in the screen being unreadable (FYI: I have an iPhone 5 with a LifeProof FRĒ case). I suspect even a nude phone would have this glare; perhaps even worse. Of course, those with different phones, cases/screen protectors, and dashboards could have different results.
⭐️⭐️ Others may find this a 4 star mount, but for me, the glare, temperature, visibility, & arthritis issues are show stoppers; ergo, a 2 star mount!
I much prefer the KENU mount (between $20.00 & $30.00); superior in nearly every regard (but lacks the universal swivel) and with none of the shortcomings.
