Best GPS Holder: One Winner

Driving is now easy, thanks to the GPS as drivers can easily navigate the roads without having to consult a complicated map. Aside from having this electronic device, drivers must also find the perfect mount or holder for it.

The three products in this review promise to be a great holder that can be used with a wide variety of GPS, and smartphones as well as vehicles. However, not all three can deliver on their promises to buyers.

For example, the FEIKU Universal Cradle promises to be a reliable and stylish holder that can work on both flat and curved dashboards. This, product, however, is difficult to use as it is hard to fit the electronic device. The size is a significant concern too as it is big and consumes a lot of space on the dashboard.

On the other hand, the Lyork GPS Holder for Car has a patented design and other virtues. Its many great features, however, is not enough as the product suffers from a major flaw: the adhesive does not stick well to surfaces.

This leaves the Bosynoy Car Phone Mount as the best GPS holder of the three. However, buyers should only choose this product if their vehicles have a flat-surfaced dashboard.
