With more and more cars now coming with sat-nav built in as standard can we see these kind of accessories die off soon? Nope not for a while yet,With most of us now sporting smartphones we have sat-nav built in and an array of choices of apps to use such as HERE,Google and TomTom mapping apps and we are more custom to those today than what may come pre-installed in a vehicle or again standalone sat-nav units. I tend to ignore the standalone because the ones we can freely download and use are more than enough to get what we want be it directions or just searching for a business or address..

Accessories are a plenty too,some good and some not so good and again there is some awkward or cumbersome offerings out there to hold our device in our vehicles,The one we have tested out is from our friends at Mobile Fun and its from Olixar and its a one piece unit and simple,nothing complicated at all here to use or install..

Priced now at €16.49 this is a good solid unit and comes with a two year warranty which is good for piece of mind too. Having tested this out it has been solid and works well especially if two people are in the car it can swivel simply should you need to do something on the device,with seconds to install and excellent suction it is very secure and even after going over some ramps and pot-holes ( We have lots of them in Ireland) it failed to budge. Overall I found it solid,stable and it failed to loose the devices tested on it no matter which way I had it stored be it Horizontally of Vertically.. Installing and removing the device is what impressed me too,there was nothing to it,Its simple,affordable and effective.
