Best Dash-Mounted Holders in 2020



BUNKER INDUST Car Mount Phone Holder with Storage Box for Cell Phones and Mini Tablets,Fits for Jeep Wrangler JL 2018 2019 Review:


i didnt like the phone holder/ gripper hand itself - the gripping power is ok at best...
but i was not over happy with it
so what i did was combine the entire mounting tray , with my old mounting magnetic part - made by wizgear ..
the magnetic puck of the wizgear is a direct fit for the ball/socket end of this mounting tray.. it fits realllllly well , gets very tight , and is soooooooooooo much better , and my phone is very secure - and im VERY HAPPY now ..
they should just make it like this to begin with - when i get in the jeep i will snap some photos !!!



ChargerCity Car Dashboard & Windshield Suction Cup Mount Holder for Escort Passport 9500ix 9500i 8500 8500x50 S55 S75g Solo S2 S3 and Beltronics GX65 RX65 Vector 975 Radar Detectors … Review:


I bought this this replace the small metal two suction cup factory version mount for my beloved Bell V995 in a work vehicle. The original my the dectector vibrate badly against the glass. I have the original version in several other vehicles and it works fine just the angle of the glass in this minivan makes it vibrate. Firstly this mount shipped fast and arrived in perfectly new condition as I would expect. The mount itself is robust and well made with one big easy to attach suction cup. The part that extends into the dectector is made of plastic where it should be made of metal, metal coated in thin rubber preferably for silence. As others have stated I question the long term life of the plastic part in this one spot as it does flex, while the rest of the mount is awesome and rock solid. I have had the mount for several months though and no issues, even installing and removing the dectector every week day. I did have to put a small piece of ribbon over the part that inserts into the dectector to silence it but this could be the vehicle vibrates more than most. If they upgraded the insertion piece this is 5 star all day long but as is it is still better than most and I think the insertion part would be easy enough to fabricate at home if needed so no worries. I would recommend it



ReadiSpex Eyeglasses and Sunglass Holder for Car Dash | Premium Metal-Alloy Sunglasses Holder for Car, House, Boat, RV, or Truck | Great Review:


This ReadiSpex is quite a useful tool/device for me. I like the slim design that can easily open and hold the glass frames. I put it in a convenient spot that’s inconspicuous in my car and also next to my bed. I find that when I’ve put glasses in my car they have a tendency to get covered or things laid on them or fall between the cracks and now I can always have them in the same place as I don’t have a eyeglass holder in my car. And I really like the best use of it on my nightstand as it’s on the side of my stand as a post to the top where I often knock them off. Now I don’t.
I also like the fact that I have an extra adhesive pad so that if I did wanna change it I don’t have to have anything that I have to be concerned about if it’s going to hold or not.
I think that I found something for some good Christmas gifts and things to give to customers.



Nite Ize Steelie Orbiter Magnetic Socket - Low Profile Portable Magnetic Car Vent Mount for Smartphones Review:


Finally I don't have to attach a magnet directly to my phone case nor do I have to attach any stinking metal plates to it either!! I've owned a Steelie mount for a long time now and I've been happy with it, but ever since changing to wireless charging with my Samsung it's been a pain in the ass having to have a magnet attached to my phone. This attachment keeps the magnet in the car on the mount and off of my phone, and I can take it with me whenever I need the magnet to attach my phone somewhere outside of the car. I've wasted plenty of time trying to jerryrig a solution like this only to have it fail when I needed it most, but this baby does the job in spades. Thank you Nite Ize! You've done it again!



Vaygway Car Coin Change Holder- Black Mini Storage Coin Organizer-Universal Car Money Meter Dispenser Review:


In my first car I had one built in and was sad that my car now doesn’t have one. I would fumble with a container of change which would take too long when I’m in some drive through or needed change fast. This is very helpful. I’m also a waitress so I use this at work and it makes it significantly easier so I’m not digging in my pockets to try to get 43 cents. Love this. I also got it for a friend and they rave about how much they love it. Haha it’s the little things that make our day



Daystar, Jeep JK Wrangler Upper Dash Panel with holder for Large I Phone and I Phone Plus; Mini Pad; Cradle; Black, fits 2011 to 2017 2/4WD, KJ71057BK and KJ71047BK Review:


Love it! 4 stars

Only cons:
-When you're turning it from horizontal to vertical, esp if it's plugged in, the bottom kind of bumps on the middle divider thing. If you're keeping your phone completely horizontal all the time it's not a problem, although makes it a tiny awkward w touch ID.
-This might be a tight fit or non fit for a plus if you have a lifeproof or other hearty case. This is strictly conjecture- I say this bc my iPhone 6 with a lifeproof case was pushing it to its max with the largest "arm" configuration (it comes with two options depending on size of your phone). So I can't imagine it would work well with a plus.



Rubbermaid 3329-20 Automotive Air Vent Catch All Storage Organizer: Cell Phone/Sunglasses Car Caddy, Soft Sided Review:


I have a tiny car and needed something in the front seat for trash--straw wrappers, post it notes, floss picks (yeah, I'm that girl who's flossing when I'm sitting in traffic--stop judging me!).

This is perfect for small trash. However, if I hang it from the center vent, it covers the clock; from the other center vent and it covers the stereo controls. Hang it from a side vent and it covers the cup holders (previous receptacles for small trash...)
It now hangs from the slide lever of the climate control's air intake and only blocks the mostly unusable cup holders underneath it (my Honda has a LOT of cupholders for a car that only fits 5 small people).



JDMCAR Dash Center Console Table Storage Tray,Instrument Organizer ABS Black Materials Anti-Slip Backing,Dashboard Phone Holder Cradle Compatible with Toyota Tundra 2014-2019 2020 Accessories Review:

Rugged Ridge 13551.23 2018-Present Jeep Wrangler JL Dash Multi-Mount with Phone Kit Review:


So, all the reviews are correct, but no one really calls out all the important details that help understand the reviews. I'll try to fill in that gap.
First, this is a typical Rugged Ridge product. Well designed, well executed, and inexpensive. If it's inexpensive, it doesn't mean it's junk. It just means that it may not be as durable as something made with different (more expensive materials) or it may not be as refined as other company's products. I'll get to what that means in a second.

The 13551.11 is the dash kit without the phone holder that mounts on the ball. It took a lot of looking for me to sort that out and I want to save you the search. This also fits just fine on a 2016 Wrangler (Unlimited.) Speaking of fit, this fits very closely and you need to pay attention to installation to avoid scratching the edge of the tray as other reviewers have pointed out. To do that you need to do one or the other (or both) of two things.

The edges are not 'sharp' as it might cut you, but they are sharp and hard as in they can scrape up the softer plastic of the tray molded into the dash. To avoid that, you need to avoid the first mistake I made which was thinking this needed to be 'levered' into place. It doesn't. It just snaps into place. You can either round the edges using a reamer, file, or other tool to round the bottom edges as several other reviewers have noted.

You don't really need to do that if you don't want to, but you do need to pay attention. The bracket will just snap into place so if you remove the bolt like described in the instructions and line the hooks up over the first two slots of the air vents and then just push straight down (you might have to give it a light little 'wack' to force it down so the hooks flex enough to get past the edge of the vent), the hooks will pop into place. Then you install the bolt and put the cover on and the installation of the base is complete.

As to the mount itself, maybe I wasn't very observant, but there were several things I hoped worked the way I wanted but wasn't able to determine before I purchased it. Good thing was that everything was exactly the way I hoped:

The ball mount is a 17mm or 1" ball, which is the same as Garmin mounts, the 'standard' ram-line 1" ball, and many others out there, so you can do with this exactly what I did and ditch the Garmin suction cup mount and attach my GPS Map exactly where I could see it easily! It fits a tiny bit looser than the Garmin one, but not enough for it to move. It's just a little less tight.

I'll revise this review if the knob breaks off as a few of the other reviewers have noted. It was installed in August of 2016 so we'll see if there is an issue with plastic ageing under the sun.

Second, the stud mound for a camera isn't obvious and if you look at the picture, you wonder how an action camera or any other stud mount device would attach. It turns out that the mount is three pieces (not including the bolt and tray) and the ball mount and the piece with the brass (yellow) insert and the larger hole are all separate pieces. You install them in different combinations depending on what you want set up. The base of the mount has a little thumb-wheel that you use to loosen and tighten the mounting pieces. I consider this a HUGE plus since it offers the possibility of mounting other things there too!

All in all I'm very satisfied and I'm thinking I'm buying this as a gift for other JK and JKU owners I know!
