Innovative iPhone and Galaxy III Case allows you to mount on dash/windshield
I found this sweet iPhone 5S gold yesterday.
It was in an open convertible car attached to the dash in a cool looking case.
My bro Carlton snapped some photos of it in the car.
The cool thing about it wasn't that it was a iPhone 5S Gold but it was in a case that allowed it to easily slide in and out of the dash/windshield/windscreen holder.
It is easy to use. So easy a child can use it and it only requires one hand operation and allows you to use the Siri operations as well as the rest of the carputer features that the new phones can offer.
You can see this kickstarter project here:

I have attached some pics of the device and as a bonus a pic of my turtles watching a movie!

The Limitations of other solutions
We looked at using other places to mount the device that required easy installation. The problem we found is that glancing down toward the console area is a much bigger distraction than glancing toward the phone when mounted on the dash or on the windshield.

Since our device can be mounted on both the dash and windshield, it gives the users options according to taste.
I wanted to create something that gave the least amount of distraction to the driver. Being able to have it close enough to use Siri and visible with only a side glance was important in the design.
I also wanted to be able to offer it as a KickStarter project for the lowest amount of funding necessary to get it created.
To that end we reused existing systems parts that are available off the shelf and designed the injection mold in a fashion that required the least complexity.
We have a second design that we will produce if this one is successful that doesn't mount it on the Windshield or Dash, but that is in the future.
Thanks for the great reply!
