The Best Dashboard Mount for Driving Safely

With more than 81% of Americans currently toting around smartphones in the United States*, it’s easy to see why they’ve become so integrated into every aspect of our lives. Because we’ve come to rely on them for so much, a little reflection on the wisest ways to use our mobile devices, especially when we drive, is essential.

When coupled with proper “do-not-disturb” apps and features, an iOttie phone mount can allow you safer, hands-free access to your device while navigating through a new city or listening to your favorite podcast on your daily commute. These mounts are compatible with nearly all current smartphone models and hold your device securely at eye level through the use of magnets or “hugging” arms. The sticky gel suction cup makes it easy to mount on your dashboard and re-position if needed. iOttie mounts top the review charts for their durability, ease-of-use, and overall look and feel.

Here at Silver Star, we place a high value on decreasing the risks associated with looking down at a smartphone while driving and encourage hands-free usage. It’s why we’ve invested in a public service initiative over the last few months with the theme of “Phone down. Head up.”

We recommend iOttie users position their mobile phone into their dashboard mount and launch any navigation or listening services while parked. We also recommend launching “do not disturb” applications and features before driving.
