We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. It’s never a good idea to use your phone while driving. That being said, our smartphones are the most advanced GPS devices the world has seen thus far, and phone navigation has become pretty ubiquitous in the past few years. These car mounts and holders will keep your iPhone conveniently in view hands-free without blocking your line of sight for added safety. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.
