I was so sick of nagging my daughter to STOP using her cell phone while driving. It was just a matter of time before she got a ticket, or worse got into an accident. Looking for a solution I went on Amazon and voila, I found iOttie HLCRIO102 One Touch Windshield Dashboard Universal Car Mount Holder which works for her iPhone 4S.
She didn’t want to attach it at first but once she realized how easy it was to slip her phone in and out, even with the case on, she was fine with it. And it’s not as ugly as some of the others, so that’s a good thing. Actually she said it’s kinda cool looking.
We live in sunny California where the dashboards get really hot, so I was mostly concerned about the suction cup working. So far so good! She’s good about using the windshield sun protector to keep her car cool so it hasn’t melted off the dashboard yet, and it got hot this summer!!
Now did she stop talking while driving? No, but at least she has 2 hands on the wheel and that counts for a lot. Because she has Siri she can leave it on speaker and get Siri to do the dialing and connecting for her. So is she safer? You betcha!! Am I less worried? No, I’m a dad, that’s part of my job!!
But with the iOttie HLCRIO102 One Touch Car Mount Holder, and the phone on “Speaker” mode, it’s a win win for everybody. She doesn’t get grounded and I’m not a nag anymore.
