    Cool 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!

    you lie has no qualifier about what I lie about. So this is just an idiotic statement. If you want to say something then say something intelligent.

    it's obvious that you didn't happen upon this kickstarter case in a random car that you walked by. you're clearly promoting for it.

    and by saying i have nothing intelligent to say isn't the best way to promote your product.


    regardless this is a much better product imho:

    "It's obvious that you didn't happen upon this kickstarter case in a random car that you walked by. you're clearly promoting for it. "

    Clearly you missed the joke in this...

    "and by saying i have nothing intelligent to say isn't the best way to promote your product."

    Congratulations, your debate skills are getting better!

    Magnets and Electronics don't mix. Magnets can act as a signal shield and in the case of some phones interferes with magnetic reactive parts in the phones and can damage these phones.

    In the short term it's probably not a problem. In the long term it is.

    We avoided the use of magnets for that reason. Ours adapts the case to the mount by the simplest slide in mechanism that even a five year old child can use see the KickStarter site.

    Our design also allows you to swivel the phone up and down and side to side to adjust it to the most ideal angle possible.

    It may be a great case, but from my prospective I just hate stuff stuck to my windshield, just a personal thing. That is one of the reasons I worked so hard to integrate everything into a car PC. If I did mount it on the windshield, I don't think I would want it right over the defrost vents, up here we run a lot lot of heat through them to keep the windshield clear, also in my vehicle it would be a long way away plus the angle of the windshield would likely allow the sun to wash it out more. Looks well made though, good luck with it!

    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.

    We all know about the million drivers on the road that spend 2% of the time looking at the road and cause accidents. Our design was meant to minimize the distraction.

    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!

    hmm. so i was just going over the TOS...
    1. Please do not place the company’s web address in either your signature, as a hyperlink, or in a post. This is considered advertising and will be subject to penalty. If the mp3Car Store sells your products however, you may note this in your signature and have a hyperlink to the product(s) on the mp3Car Store.
    2. If you have a reasonable cause for placing a link to your company, first ask for approval from mp3Car. Certain companies have been given permission to place a link to their company website, based on their contributions to the community.
    4. Please be respectful on the forums; should a disagreement arise with another member that may be a competitor, or you find another member is purposely flaming your company, report the post and the moderators will take action, if any is needed.
    1: I guess 1 is a bit of a gray area since you've posted a kickstarter link. it's not your company but it's a business that is enabling you to sell a product
    2: i dont know if you actually asked permission but based on this portion: "based on their contributions to the community." and seeing how you have 4 posts. i highly doubt you've been contributing to the community
    4: don't think you're respectful

    normally i love kickstarter campaigns and have backed probably 15 so far. However you're attitude on this thread leaves a lot to be desired.

    you said "you lie" without any qualifier that is very disrespectful so I am not sure where it is your coming from.

    There is nothing wrong with my attitude, it was a response to yours I simply called you out on it.

    Yes, this appears to be a clear violation of the TOS.
