A mobile phone inside the car can be used, among others as a navigation, music and movie player, and above all for making phone calls without having to hold the phone in your hand. Before embarking on a trip, it is worth ensuring a safe and comfortable mounting to the phone. For this purpose, it is best to choose an appropriate, dedicated holder. All holders, regardless of the predominant purpose of using the phone in the car, should, first of all, ensure safe use and guarantee convenient access to the mounted device. The choice of aesthetics and the method of mounting depends solely on the individual preferences of the driver. Phone holders are one of the most popular car accessories. Besides your mobile phone, you can also use it to hold a tablet, GPS or music player. The Botland store offers both standard, cheapest models of holders with a good price-quality ratio, as well as products for more demanding users who need additional functionalities. The main task of the holder is to hold the device stable, also when driving on uneven surfaces.

What should you pay attention to before buying a car phone holder?

First of all, you should pay attention to the quality of workmanship - the better, the more safe the device is to use, and the longer the durability of the holder. Price usually reflects quality and functionality, and this is often the case with car mounts. Regardless of the method of attachment, the smaller the holder, the better. It is worth remembering about this, especially when buying a glass holder so that it does not limit the visibility. The freedom to set the position of the display is also important - the holder should allow movement in every direction in order to set the optimal position of the display, also when the car is used by different drivers and when devices other than a mobile phone are installed. The dimensions of the device that we want to mount on the holder are also important. The flexible bracket spacing allows for the installation of various devices and freedom of movement, especially for windshield and dash mount brackets. A convenient solution is a dedicated holder, where the device will always fit perfectly into the holder.

What types of car phone holders can you purchase from Botland?

Another important factor is the way the mount is mounted in the car. Each type of holder has its advantages and disadvantages, so you should consider which type of holder will best meet your expectations. Car glass holders (with a suction cup) are one of the most popular ways of fixing. Due to the installation in close proximity to the windshield, such a holder allows you to freely look at the screen, without taking your eyes off the road too much and makes it easier to locate GPS coordinates on the route map. The advantage is also high stability - to make sure that the device does not fall off under sharper braking, pay attention to the skilful attachment of the holder to the glass. The glass holder is easy to set up, and mounting and dismounting the phone is not a problem. On the other hand, the sucker may be problematic, because improper attachment of the holder to a dirty surface increases the risk of injuries in an accident, and a high-temperature difference may lead to a sudden detachment of the holder from the windshield while driving. The suction cup on the windshield also slightly restricts the field of view. Another popular type of car telephone holders is grille-mounted holders. As any solution, this, apart from its undisputed advantages, is not free from disadvantages. Such a holder does not limit visibility through the windshield and provides very easy access to the phone, as well as allows easy assembly and disassembly of the phone. On the other hand, the drawback of this solution is the minimal deterioration of the airflow efficiency due to the partial covering of the ventilation grille. In case of improper installation, the air outlet grille can be damaged, and in winter there is an increased risk of overheating the phone casing when hot air is blown into the interior. When buying a universal holder for mounting on a grille, it is worth checking the thickness of the grille before purchasing.
