The big disadvantage of the Kensington (and the cause of its ultimate demise) were the adjustable arms that clamped on the iPod/iPhone; while it allowed adapting to any model, the clamp and release mechanism were "temperamental". The ratchet mechanism was hard to adjust "just right", and if too tight would rattle loudly as the car moved. It needed to be re-adjusted frequently, as it worked loose gradually. The Griffin in contrast comes with a whole array of plastic "heads" designed to perfectly fit and support various models with no slack or vibration. The heads are unlabeled; you just need to try your iPod or iPhone in each one that vaguely looks like it might fit until you get the right one. If you switch often between various models you'd want to carry the appropriate adapters, and need to switch them out... and the next new model probably won't be covered. (Luckily, I rarely use anything but my iPhone 3G in the car, and it turns out that my daughter's 3rd gen iPod nano can fit the iPhone sleeve. This may however be an issue if, for example, I upgrade to a "next gen iPhone" when such a thing is released, but we'll have to wait and see.)
Like the Kensington, the Griffin has a wireless remote that can velcro onto the steering wheel. I thought this was silly on the Kensington, but found that it quickly became a necessity. The convenience of being able to play, pause, and skip tracks without moving my eyes or taking a hand off the wheel is great. The reliability of the Kensington remote was "inconsistent", however.Read more ›
-Looks sharp if you have black/dark interior.
-Mount doesn't move at all for me. Bounces a little, no big deal.
-Nice speaker wire. Holds the shape you move it to and stays out of the way.
-Remote actually works quite well & is very handy (no pun intended). I was surprised.
-Good luck figuring out how to velcro that remote to the steering wheel. Took me 15 minutes! (Disclosure: I can be a bit of an idiot.)
-The Aux out from the charger is rubbish. I can't even get it to play sound. You need to run the wire from the line out on the iPhone, which is fine with me.
-None of the docks will fit your 3G if you have a protective case. I have a super slim case and I have to pop mine off when I get in the car. Not a big deal for my type of cover, but could be a hassle for some people.
-Once or twice got the This Device Does Not Work with iPhone message, but not a deal-breaker.
End of the day, it doesn't seem like there are any perfect car mounts/chargers out there. But I will vouch for this one being good enough. The price is a little steep, but you get what you pay for, and this is a durable product that I don't think will break on me any time soon.
Which leads to my second minor gripe - the placement of the out jack on the outer edge of cigarette lighter plug makes it awkward due to the recessed placement of the light socket in my Acura TL. But, that may just be a peculiarity of the TL and it works fine once it is plugged in and adjusted. I also wish that the neck of the Tuneflex were a little shorter and/or more flexible so that it could be more easily adjusted to be out of the way.
I bought this mainly for the remote control. It works well enough, but I found that there is no place to attach it to the steering wheel where it is completely out of the way. I ended up with it strapped on at about the 10:00 position. I can reach it there easily with my thumb and it is not too much in the way. I think I will get used to it being there pretty quickly. Also, I don't see how the remote magnet could easily/accidentally become detached as other reviewers have said.
My only other concern is that the adapter sleeve for the iPod Classic 160GB provides very little grip to hold the iPod securely and firmly.Read more ›

Too weak. Did not support my iPhone well enough to use it. I bought the Aduro U-GRIP PLUS Universal Dashboard Windshield Car Mount for Smart Phones instead and love it. Read morePublished 10 months ago by j
