PRODUCT REVIEW: ProClip offers simple, safe iPhone car use

| | ,

When I received my ProClip in the mail I was skeptical. Why would I want to car mount my iPhone where I could easily see it?

I didn’t want an iPhone distracting me from my driving. I have always synced my phone to my car and thrown the phone in a inconvenient storage area — never to be seen again while driving.

Not any more. iOmounts has paired its patented, infinitely rotatable, magnetic mount with the uber-slick, auto dashboard mounts from ProClip USA.

With ProClip, my mobile phone usage habits have totally changed. The phone is held in my ProClip where I can easily see it with a quick glance.  When the phone rings, I still answer it through the car’s system, but now I can see who is calling. When I get a text, I can easily read it and respond with a single touch to Siri.

Proclip is a no-brainer in cars without syncing capabilities. Even if you can sync, it’s nice to have the phone in a handy mount where all functions are readily available with a one-hand touch.

My ProClip easily mounted in my 2010 Subaru Outback as advertised. It took about one-minute to get a professional-looking mount that did not damage my dash in any way.

I have a magnetic swivel mount that holds the phone solidly and the look is custom. ProClip has custom mounts for hundreds of cars, all easily determined from the company website.
