EDITED on May 14, 2013 to add: The other day I finally posted a photo in the "customer image" collection, that shows this gadget holding my phone, mounted in the dash of my Outback. I'm still using it, and liking it.
I've also figured out that if I flip the holder around to a horizontal orientation, it will hold my Garmin Nuvi 1350. However, I have a beanbag nonskid type dashtop holder for the Nuvi and will probably continue to use that, and keep this Mountek gadget for my phone. I rarely use the Garmin except for road trips and the beanbag holder is easy to stash out of sight when I get out of the car, without removing the Garmin first.
Not a lot of vibration, happily, and it's pretty adjustable for what it is. The screw you tighten to hold it in your CD player works great and keeps the mount in place. I was able to play a favorite CD in my car while this was installed. Granted I couldn't change the CD easily, that wasn't a huge issue for me, as I have mostly digital music.
So, would I buy this again? No. I've found other mounts that are much more reliable and secure. It was ok for what it did, however. A purely mechanically-held cell phone mount, not using sticky pads. For as easy as it was to lose that bottom clip, though, which completely gutted the flexibility of this mount...I personally would look at other options.
Soon after, things went south. After the 2 month mark, it had completely lost its ability to grip the phone. While I have not disassembled the product to confirm my suspicion, it feels as if the teeth of the gears have been worn down. It simply will not lock into place around my phone anymore. It's like it isn't catching into whatever notches keep the arms locked in place. I can be driving down the smoothest road in the country and my phone will tumble out of the cradle and onto the floor.
I want to make something VERY clear to those of you taking the time to read this. No, I did not abuse this product. I did not squeeze it forcefully onto my phone. I did not yank the arms of the cradle apart. Basically, at no point did I operate this product in any way which would have damaged it or compromised its ability to grip the phone. It simply lost its gripping power with careful, everyday use.
I hope my review helps you to make an informed decision, or perhaps helps the manufacturer to improve their product. As it stands, I cannot recommend this Mountek mount to anyone. If this were a $5 piece of flea market junk, okay, sure, I'd expect it to break after about 75 days. But for over $20, I want something that's going to last a while.
