Excellent value – Universal Car Windshield Swivel Mount for Nokia 5800 Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
This windscreen mount is surprisingly solidly made.
It has a good suction cup with lever action that sticks firmly and positively to the windscreen and is easy to take off. You don't need to lick the suction cup, unlike on my 300 euro satnav.
It's quick and easy to get the phone in and out of the holder.
The phone holder piece connects to the flexible arm via a ball-and-socket arrangement so the phone can be held in any angle or orientation. The ball-and-socket is tightened by a cog wheel.
The flexible arm is very stiff which IMHO is a good thing as you can pressquite firmly on the screen without th ephone moving around too much
Cons:
No real cons. It's functional rather than ultra-stylist looking.
Other:
Tip: never completely unscrew the cog wheel that tightens the ball-and-socket 'cos there's a little metal hex nut in there that will fall out and almost certainly get lost.
Bottomline:
Amazing value. If you have a car and a Nokia 5800 IMHO you really can't go wrong.
