    Good build quality.

    When you slide the unit right & left (landscape) or up and down (portrait), the unit does not always stay secured where you set it.

    When combined with the Tomtom software app (purchased separately) , it has proven to be an excellent overall in-car GPS solution.

    I was very hesitant about purchasing this mount for two reasons:

    1. I have the Navigon software, not the TomTom application.
    2. Everyone says you mount falls into portrait mode when you hit a bump.

    Regardless, I bought one because I found it for $119 at the Apple Store. I can say it works flawlessly with the Navigon software. The bad reviews the device is getting are from the fact that the mount will fall into portrait mode when you hit a bump. This is not really accurate. You don't notice it at first but you can slide the mount up and down which fully prevents that from happening. The people who gave the device bad reviews probably didn't realize this. When you take the mount out of the box it's all the way extended and will fall into portrait mode very easily unless you slide it to the right a bit so the weight is balanced. Once you do that it will stay in the correct position regarldess of how bumpy the road is.

    One other thing I really liked about this mount is the fact that I didn't have to take my iPhone out of the case to use it. I highly recommend this mount. It is compact, well built and gets great reception. The speaker is also loud and clear. The design of the suction cup is excellent as well, it's got a dial on it that lets you really crank it down so it won't come off the window regardless of the humidity or temperature. Great device.

    This item is very nice and easy way to keep and charge your iphone in the car, especially if you have downloaded/bought and are using a navigation app such as tomtom or navigon because these tend to suck your battery dry in a matter of minutes.

    This item works with all other nav apps and it enhances the GPS signal by a LOT. This is especially helpful in cities when the iPhones GPS chip can't find a good signal because of the tall buildings. The chip also allows the app to be much more accurate at where you are exactly to give better and quicker directions (for turning at specific points, etc).

    The items comes with a suction cup and a flat sticky pad. The sticky pad works with the suction cup where you can mount on your dashboard or where ever else if you don't like your phone on the windshield; and its discrete also, when the item isn't suctioned onto it, the pad doesn't really look like anything so a thief won't be tipped off to what might be hidden in the car.

    The items speaker also is nice and clear, giving good and loud directions that are much more clear then the iphones speaker.

    But with a good there are always flaws. I believe the suction cup is much too small, and doesn't give enough suction. It has screw action thats supposed to tighten/secure it after you suction the cup, however theres not much room for it to do that. It could have been the way I suctioned, but it fell twice on me. Other times it was difficult to get off the windshield so it could be just me.

    The rotating landscape to portrait view is very flimsy. It just about stays when you put in landscape, however if you hit a bump it will fall to portrait view.

    I finally got my hands on one of these and my only complaint is how long it took.

    TomTom really did not expect how popular these units would be and therefore have not done well with their production times.

    Other than that its a great handsfree speakerphone (louder than the iphone speakerphone)

    The GPS chip is much more accurate than the one included with the iPhone.

    I love that I can play music through the TomTom app while receiving directions.

    All in all this is a pretty good buy as I was in the need for a cradle, hands free, and hand held GPS unit!

    Verified Purchase
    I have owned the Tom Tom car kit for about 6 months, and have used it on my iphone 3G as well as my iphone 4. Here is my take on the device:

    PROs:
    Compact, secures well to the windshield or mounting disk
    Charges the iphone 3G just fine and the iphone 4 (with a workaround)
    Works fairly well acquiring satellites, but I haven't noticed any significant improvement over using the Tom Tom app without the mount

    CONs:
    MAJOR CON: The USB and line out connection ports are on the MOVEABLE part of the mount instead of on the stationary base! What this means is that when you rotate the device from portrait to landscape (or vice-versa or in-between), the cables rotate with it! To make matters worse, this means that if you try to route the cables to hide most of the slack, you need to leave enough extra visible slack to allow for free movement, thus making things look more cluttered. The cables can also bind when you rotate the device because they are moving with the device. WHY DIDN'T THEY PLACE THE LINE OUT AND USB PORTS ON THE BASE THAT STAYS STATIONARY ALL OF THE TIME?

    When you slide the unit right & left (landscape) or up and down (portrait), the unit does not always stay secured where you set it. Yes, you can improve on this by sliding it all of the way to one end, but that is not always practical

    The arm (stem) is too short. If you mount the unit on the dashboard using the disc, it is difficult to adjust it to a point where it will clear the dashboard when in portrait mode. This severely limits your choices in positioning the unit for convenient use in both portrait and landscape modes.
