    Default Car Mount For iPhone 5

    Hi I was wandering where I could find a car mount for my iPhone 5, but my iPhone has a Otterbox on it. So I was wandering if there was a mount that could support my commuter case on my iPhone 5 while connected?


    Thanks

    These are the car mounts I have used. Had one for the 4 in a defender and now use one with my 5 in a defender. I highly recommend them.



    They really are great.

    I'm using a dock that hooks onto your air vent. It was in the GPS section of BestBuy..not really sure what it's called, but any of those universal docks should work fine.

    I use the iOttie mount in my car and it will work with an iPhone in an Otterbox.

    I use a proclip. I have a Seidio case that is basically an otterbox commuter and I have also used the otterbox defender with it. The holder is actually an iPhone 4 adjustable holder.

    I bought one that has both vent mount and suction cup mount. But the vent mount doesn't work in my car - my air vents are on an angle and the slats are oversized. Last time i buy a Bentley. Great mount though otherwise. Bought on iMore store website. iBOLT ProDock Alumina for iPhone 5. iBOLT ProDock Alumina - Apple iPhone Car Kits & Mounts

    I am a fan of proclip mounts. They have an iphone 5 car mount going on sale today, and versions that support OtterBox cases. I order directly from their website, and have a proclip mount in all of my vehicles.

    Been using mounts since my iP4 and it still works fine with my iP5 with a minimalistic case on it. Semi-permanent install that clips into a dash seem with a strip of adhesive to keep it solid.

    Here is a great car mount for the iPhone 5 with a Otterbox Defender Case - this mount is custom made for the Defender Series

    I think this mount is better because It is custom made specifically for the iPhone 5 Otterbox Defender Series case so you don't have to squeeze anything together and hope it holds. It has a secure clip on top that holds it in place. The camera is not obstructed so you could record video as you drive. Check out the link and image. Let me know what you think
