Product Research


Overview: This package is offered as an accessory for Escort Live!-compatible radar detectors. It is designed to mount your iPhone on your vehicle's dashboard, console, or windshield so you can easily see the Escort Live! displays on the screen. It can also be used to mount practically any smartphone or digital media player. The package consists of the Arkon Mega Grip Smartphone Mount for Windshield or Dashboard, a beanbag dashboard mount, and a 3' iPhone/iPod to USB charging cable.

Windshield/Dash Mount: The Arkon Mega Grip Smartphone Mount is a versatile device holder that attaches to your vehicle's windshield, dashboard, or console with the Travelmount suction cup. The mount has adjustable padded sides that grip your device, with or without a case. The lower support legs are adjustable so you can keep the cable connection port free. A self-adhesive disk is included if you choose to mount the holder on the dashboard or console. A 3' Apple-to-USB charging cable (30-pin dock connector to Type A USB) is included for use with iPhones.

Beanbag Dash Mount: Also included in the package is a weighted circular beanbag mount for placing the Smartphone Mount on your dashboard. By placing the Smartphone Mount on the dash, you avoid potential blind spots that typically occur with a windshield mount. The 6-1/2" diameter mount weighs nearly 2 pounds and has a high-friction bottom surface to hold the mount securely on your dashboard. The top surface contains a 3-1/4" diameter hard plastic disc for the Travelmount suction cup, surrounded by 5 weighted pads.

Usage: The Smartphone Mount has spring-loaded ratcheting side grips that can accommodate virtually any smartphone from 1.75" to 3.25" wide. After placing your device in the mount, you can squeeze the side grips together until they are snug against the phone. Once the phone is secured in the mount, you can rotate the mount 360° for portrait or landscape orientation and tilt the screen to any angle for best visibility. A quick-release button springs opens the side grips for quick removal. Once you have placed the device in the holder, you can mount it on the windshield, dashboard, or console in an easy-to-reach place.
