When TeleNav GPS was released for Android I quickly realized I would need to purchase a window mount for my G1.  I searched around the web and was about to buy one for $30 until I found this awesome deal.  Amazon has a windshield car mount holder from Bargaincell for just under $7.  I went ahead and ordered the product and received it in a few days.

When I opened the product I was thrilled to find the large suction cup with release switch.  The switch makes it easier to get a firm suction so the mount does not fall off.  I’ve had problems with my TomTom mount coming loose, but this one sticks in place.

The build quality is what you would expect for $7.  It is made from all plastic, but there are foam inserts on the inside.  The foam helps to grip the phone so it does not slide out.  There are also little feet at the bottom which prevent the phone from falling out.

Two adjustments are available for to position the arm at any angle.  The base also swivels to turn the mount upside down in order to mount it to your dash.  My shipment also came with an extra mount that clips into an air conditioner vent.  Note that sometimes these resellers on Amazon ship slightly different variations of the product so the AC clip may not be included.

You WISH the G1 was included

Have you made up your mind yet?  Even if you don’t use GPS on your Android device, it is still nice to have a mount while driving.  There are many other useful apps for Android which can display information while in a moving vehicle. Purchase your car mount from Amazon today. You won’t find a cheaper car mount on the web.

Here is video we uploaded with a hands on demonstration of the product.
