    All this commute talk jinxed me today... big rig and a food truck got into it right at 980/880. Took me over an hour to drive past downtown Oakland. From Alameda o_O


    Did spot a nice T4R on the bay bridge though. Anyone recognize?

    So I'm going to ask a stoopid question. I know what @cbechtold and @tacomgee have, but what are the rest of you guys running for phone mounts? Thinking about one of the magnetic ones, but don't want to have the phone drop while playing.

    I got a tech-deck with ram mounts, and I adapted a Panavise phone holder to fit. I like the Panavise holder because it holds my phone securely but I can easily take it out and put it in with one hand and no fumbling.

    +1 for mob armor. have had the iphone one for years and their customer support has been awesome (had the original one fail on me and they went ahead and sent me a replacement after my warranty period had expired.

    Hows that ipad holder @LTDSC ? I was eyeing them but I went with a tech deck + ram mount instead.

    It's attached to a metal shelf in the garage to hold my phone and play music while i'm in there doing stupid shit to my truck and spending money I shouldn't.
    BTW, after your post about your drawers in the mini van. It's making me think about some for my truck when camping.

    what happened with it? I mean I don't mob very hard but mines been completely solid -- except the original one which essentially went limp and wouldn't hold the angle I move it to. But mob armor just sent me a replacement for it free of charge. It definitely holds up much better than the ram mount i use for my ipad or ham radio.
