Most in-vehicle device mounts are expensive given their purpose. Please hold my phone in one place, here’s $30. Bah! Using few pieces of pipe, some craft foam, and a bit of plastic-coated wire, you can create your own vehicle mount quickly and cheaply.
Perhaps most importantly, there’s no need to stick anything on your windshield and you don’t need any adhesive. No drilling holes in your dashboard, either. The end result wedges itself in between your steering column and dashboard, and keeps your device right in front of you without actually blocking your view of the road.
