Very Good Design -- Portable, Secure, and Stable

Fred from Alexandria, VA on 1/1/2006

I've got one of these (in white) and really like it. <BR><BR>Pluses: <BR>1. Suction cup holds iPod well but is easy to release. <BR>2. Easy to move between vehicles.<BR>3. Has dock connector access hole.<BR><BR>Minuses:<BR>1. Lip on "cup" limits the tilt-down angle (only an issue with high cup holders).<BR>2. Large diameter cups mean that spring-loaded drink holders (VW, for instance) are open rather far.<BR><BR>See the manufacturer's web site for high-resolution photos of the item installed in a drink holder.<BR><BR>WARNING: In some states, use of this device to put video-capable iPods within view of the driver may be illegal. In others, watching a video on the iPod while driving may be illegal (and is always a bad idea).

iPod Holder

Vinnie from Lewisburg, OH on 12/7/2005

This is one of the neatest holders I have seen so far. Having the Suction cup to hold the iPod in is awsome. It's simple release the iPod from & even easier to attach the iPod to. I am not using the cup holder base, (I made a bracket to attach it to my dash) So I don't know how good it works. Overall This is a great product.

Really Great .. Except...

Dave from Rochester, NY on 5/2/2005

This iPod cup holder is excellent, except that it takes up a cup holder. This may sound silly, but it can be rather annoying to have one of two cup holders always used by this device. Also, because of the poor design of my 95' Honda Accord cup holder, this device "spills over" into both of my cup holders. So .. I went out and bought a cup holder at my local autoparts store for about a dollar, and use that as my iPod cup holder. This setup works very well. The device itself holds the iPod and iPod Mini well (it has yet to fall out) and it's smart design allows me to use my dock connector in a most efficient mannor. So - for a cheap, easy iPod holder for your car, get this -- and another cup holder.

Features

Overview: The Belkin TuneDok makes it easy to take along your iPod and play tunes in your car. Simply place your iPod into the TuneDok and let the AirGrip suction cup hold it in position for easy access. TuneDok provides security and stability, along with flexible construction for a perfect fit in your car's cup holder.

Note: The adapter cup allows you to use the TuneDok in Volkswagen Jetta and Golf expanding cup holders.

Adjustable Position: The cradle screws into either of the supplied bases, allowing you to adjust the cradle's height simply by turning it clockwise or counterclockwise. For additional flexibility, the cradle's ratcheting neck allows you to easily adjust the angle of the iPod.

Cable Management Clip: The cable management clip on the back of the cradle eliminates loose and tangled cords.

Desk Stand: With either of the supplied bases, the cradle can be used as a desk stand. First, the base must be turned upside down. Then, the cradle must be threaded into the bottom of the base. Once assembled in this way, the cradle can be placed on any flat surface.
