So close to 5 stars but needs improvement

JB from Leesburg, VA on 5/6/2013

Have 2. First works very well iPhone slides right in. Second uses much thicker felt pads and works but 'clunky'. Quality control obviously needs attention. As noted the speakers are muted by the holder. A deficiency which could be easily fixed. And the bottom opening is slightly narrow to slip (some) connectors through. like the design concept. Wish it were executed more consistently and design tweaked. If my second unit was identical to the first would be 4 stars.

Pros: Simple to use and effective.

Cons: Inconsistent build. Some units may function better than others.

Very solid cradle

Alan from Edmonton, AB on 8/13/2009

I combined this with the VSM mount for my '06 Accord and it fits my iPhone 3GS perfectly. The felt touches the back of the iPhone, and the plastic part of the cradle slide against the the phone's metal 'rails', which is a neat design that avoid scratching the phone. I have no need to access my volume controls as I use this with a USA Spec iPhone interface, but to those people who want to: why not just cut away part of the mount with a hacksaw or dremel? I had to remove a small amount of material at the bottom as the USA spec iPhone connector is pretty bulky; wasn't difficult as this is made from ABS plastic and is easy to work with a drill or saw.

Cons:

Wonderful, but would have been nice...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I connect my iPhone to my Alpine car stereo through the Alpine iPod-Adapter, so the fact that I can't access the volume controls don't bother me in the least. I control the volume through my car audio. The only time this might be annoying for me is if I'm speaking over my Apple Bluetooth Headset, but I just slide the phone up a little bit, change the volume and slide it back down. As far as the volume being displayed all the time like the other reviewer mentioned, I don't have that problem. I've never even see it happen. It would have been nice if they have a version of this that is a little larger in dimensions and allows for an iPhone in a case to fit in. I was hesitant that i couldn't keep my iPhone in a case and use this. I ended up installing the Invisible Shield though, which fits in the miCradle just fine.

Cons:

Not for the iPhone

Rob from Pittsburgh, PA on 3/27/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This mount probably works just fine for the iPod Touch. It doesn't work so well for the iPhone. There is no provision for the volume control buttons on the left side of the phone. The mount holds this control down all of the time. This results in the phone continuously displaying the volume of the phone. This can't be very good for the phone. A steady hand and a Dremel fixed the mount. I just enlarged the opening on the left side to free up the volume control on the phone. As one other reviewer noted the logo sticker that is meant to cover the mounting screws is dangerously ugly. I left mine off.

Cons:

Nice. But....

bob.os from Columbus, OH on 3/19/2008

This dropped right into place on my Pro-Fit car bracket with no problems whatsoever. It would benefit from lock washers on the nuts though. A little threadlocker fixed that. This mount is much smaller and more shallow than the universal mounts, so it looks better and is less obtrusive. Unfortunately, you can't reach the iPhone's volume and mute switches when the phone is in the cradle. A minor complaint, but it seems an odd oversight. The logo sticker to cover the screws is extremely ugly, unless the interior of your car is covered in rhinestones. I like the screws better. I've only had this in for a week or so, so the jury is out on the felt covers for the corners.
