Thanks for posting a review way back in 2010. This particular model (Arkon IPM515) is now considered one of our legacy products as it was originally designed for use with the iPhone 4. Beginning in 2012, we began including longer support legs so that it continued to be compatible with many of the best selling smartphones. However, as phones continued to increase in size, the form factor of this particular holder became somewhat obsolete. As such, I'd like to provide the following update. In 2013, Arkon introduced "Slim-Grip Ultra", a much larger, stronger, super high-quality version of this holder. The direct replacement to the mount you bought is our ARKON SM615 (currently 5-star rated), available here on Amazon at Arkon Windshield Dashboard Smartphone Car Mount for Apple iPhone 6S 6 Plus 6S 6 5 5S Samsung Galaxy S7 S6 Note 5 4 iPad mini
For prospective CAR MOUNT buyers reading this post, here are just a few of the reasons to go with the newer Slim-Grip Ultra instead of buying the IPM515 mount.
* Slim-Grip Ultra fits ALL Smartphones including iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S5, S4, Note 4, Note 3, Galaxy Edge, Mega
* Slim-Grip Ultra fits ALL midsize tablets having 7" or 8" screen size including Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 and 3 7.0 or 8.0, Apple iPad Mini, Nexus 7, Kindle Fire, and more
* Slim-Grip Ultra holder is larger and stronger; the support legs were reinforced and do not break under extreme stress
For those looking for a mount that features the exact same MINI windshield suction (TPU suction, non-sticky) mount (with dash mounting disk) as shown under this particular listing, the SM615 I linked to above is the correct, newer, direct replacement.
However, we also introduced newer types of suctions in 2013 that feature a sticky polyurethane gel. The "sticky" suctions are more popular than the TPU suctions as they provide a sticky, non-residue grip on the windshield, but can also be used on the dashboard. We (ARKON) strongly recommend considering model SM679, available here on Amazon at Arkon Windshield Dash Smartphone Car Mount for iPhone 6S 6 Plus 6S 6 5 5S Galaxy Note Edge 5 4 3 S7 edge S6 S5 This top seller was named "Best Smartphone Holder" by AutoExpress Magazine in the UK in 2014. You can't beat the versatility of this Slim-Grip Ultra sticky suction mount.
We have one other Sticky Suction Mount that should be considered for those looking for the best windshield or dashboard smartphone mount solutions. Our Mobile Grip 2 model MG279, introduced in 2014, features the super low-profile, easy-to-use, Mobile Grip 2 universal smartphone holder. The Mobile Grip 2 holder fits all smartphones and case combinations up to 3.6" wide. MG279 is also available here on Amazon at Arkon Windshield or Dash Phone Car Mount for iPhone 6S 6 Plus 6S 6 5 5S Galaxy S7 S6 Note 5 4 Retail Black and is ARKON's new best seller in the universal smartphone mounting category.

I bought this item to use with my iPhone 4G's TomTom GPS app, so I basically use this in landscape mode. I have a long commute, so I need to have my phone plugged in, which would not be a problem if I didn't also use my phone to make hands free calls. The little foam arms either block the center (where I plug the phone) or the bottom corners (where the phone has the speaker/microphone). It would be great if the arms could be place along the sides of the phone, but they can't be; until then, the item will only get three stars from me.
If you do not intend to use your iPhone as I do, do not think twice about buying this item though. Aside from the above-mentioned problem, this mount is great
We came out with a 2nd generation version of this mount in 2013. We called it the "Slim-Grip Ultra". For most newer, larger, smartphones, I strongly recommend getting the Slim-Grip Ultra instead. It was named "Best Smartphone Holder" in a 2014 group test by Auto Express Magazine in the UK. The best seller in the Slim-Grip Ultra series is model SM679, available here on Amazon at Arkon Windshield Dash Smartphone Car Mount for iPhone 6S 6 Plus 6S 6 5 5S Galaxy Note Edge 5 4 3 S7 edge S6 S5
I wish Amazon had a way to show buyers which of the mounts were older generation and which were newer, as the new ones typically have strong improvements over previous generation models.
Another terrific universal smartphone mount, suitable for large-size smartphones like the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, Galaxy S5, S4, Note 4, Note 3, is our Mobile Grip 2 series MG279. Mobile Grip 2 was also introduced in 2013 and is our current top seller. MG279 is available here on Amazon at Arkon Windshield or Dash Phone Car Mount for iPhone 6S 6 Plus 6S 6 5 5S Galaxy S7 S6 Note 5 4 Retail Black
Since you have an older model Arkon Slim-Grip series, you may just want to upgrade the holder to the newer, larger, stronger, Slim-Grip Ultra holder. The 5-star rated holder by itself is our model SM060-2, available here on Amazon at Arkon Slim Grip Ultra Smartphone and Midsize Tablet Holder for Apple iPhone 6S 6 Plus iPad mini Samsung Galaxy S7 S6 Note 5
I hope this information is helpful.

As far as people saying that it blocks the ports on the phone, yes it does.....but thats why the little black things at the top and bottom move. You just have to slide them a little more toward the middle of the phone and you're good to go! Cables will fit in the headphone hack and the charging port after adjusting it which is VERY easy to do. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a holder that will not fall of your windshield while driving sending your phone flying into your dash and possibly breaking the glass. Arkon did a great job with this product!
In short: Grips the windshield well, has plenty of flexibility to position the phone, holds the phone steady and is a good sturdy build. It's pretty compact too.
One point to note, as have other reviewers, pay no attention to the grip positions in the photos. Keep the top two "fingers" in the middle to clear the power button and headphone socket, and spread the bottom two apart to make room for the power cable. It still grips the phone perfectly tightly.
Highly recommended. A great accessory.
