Product Details : Olixar Dash Genie v2 Universal In-Car Dashboard and Windscreen Holder
I think the magnetic disk is a much better idea.
I am happy with this though and spent a long time deciding which phone holder to buy.
Would recommend this product and MobileZap.
Unless you have an almost vertical windscreen this will not work because the connecting arm is so short the phone cannot stand upright.
I have tried it in two different SUV's and three saloon cars and none will allow a window mount with the phone in the vertical position.
I would strongly recommend this one above all others.
So many of them are ugly, with various claws, clamps, arms etc., so when I saw the Dash Genie v2 I was immediately taken with its simple, unfussy appearance.
At such a reasonable price, could it work as well as it looked?
The answer is yes, my phone just sits there and I have no worries about it slipping, having used it extensively recently. Speed bumps, winding country roads etc no problem!
However, when it does work it holds the phone fairly well, exhibiting good levels of stability on rough roads, making the screen easy to read.
Good because it has a little shelf which makes it easier to manage when placing on and off all day.
As a temp truck driver I'm always moving from vehicle to vehicle so It's small, light volume makes it great for my over-stuffed work bag.
Watch the sticky Holder for the phone back as this sticks like cement and can be difficult to get the off the Holder!!
Not good value for my money and I would not purchase again
I had previously used the iBolt iProDock 5 which worked very well, but now with an iPhone 6s and LifeProof case the iBolt doesn't open wide enough to hold the phone when in it's case.
As it states easily portable from vehicle to vehicle which is great if like me you hire vans/cars for work. Grips all dashboards that I have used it in. Holds my note 3 when using it as a sat nav with no problems.
Unfortunatly this holder was unable to support the wieght of a large smart phone because the adhesive area is too small and so will need returning again.
Fits well on a curved dashboard and holds the phone easily in portrait or landscape without any need to remove the phone from its normal case.
Haven't yet been using it long but if it continues like this I'm delighted.
Impresses people due to it's unique design and gel tech. Ruddy well priced as well!
The DashGenie sticks to almost any surface with its suction cup and grippy material. I stuck mine on a dimpled dashboard where other mobile holders could not get a grip.
It is easy to hold the mobile in place once you get in the car... just place it on the DashGenie and it automatically grips in place... no clips to scratch your mobile phone. To remove the phone, just peel it off gently... No residue on the phone.
With time the DashGenie accumulates dust and the grippy material loses its strength somewhat... just wash with cold water and wipe dry, and it's as good as new... literally.
I've been using mine for a couple of years without any trouble... Now I buy them as gifts.
So impressed with it that I have just purchased the new version for my other half to use with her S3 and car kit, and this version has addressed the only issue I have with the original by adding a ball/socket joint giving a greater range of movement and making windscreen mounting possible for those that want it.
Is this common? I am considering an additional one but will wait to see how this one functions.
Yes it will fit to a textured dash, but it must not be curved.
The sticky pad really doesn't like matt finish phone covers.
If you have a large phone like my Xperia SP when mounted to my windscreen (VRS Octavia)I cant tile the holder back with the phone in place. The reach from the suction cup to the holder needs to be longer. When in the holder my phone is actually angled forward from the vertical.
Hope this helps people.
I have fixed it in my car, but have not yet installed it in my wife's car.
It fixes well to the inside of the car and in a way that it causes no damage.
The biggest problem is deciding where to fit it in a modern car!
The sticky pad holds a large phone securely (mine is a Nokia 720).
In short it is a good product, reasonably priced and easy to install.
Now I need to find the time to fit the second one in my wife's car.
Simply fantastic & a good price to boot.
When I first put it in the car it seemed great, even going over all the speed bumps it stayed in place. However my daughter used it for her phone, I later put my phone on it & going over a speed bump it rolled off the dash. I'm quite cautious now, I'm not sure if she loosened it when taking her phone off or it didn't stick properly. It really is a good little gadget & would buy again.
My husband said it looks like something from 'Startreck'
