Why do you need a phone mount?

In a car You can use your smartphone as a GPS, call friends, or use your device to listen to music. You want to be able to reach it easily. You can mount a mount with a suction cup to your windshield or dashboard, while you can easily click a clasp onto the air vent. Are none of these three options suitable for your car? A Brodit Proclip is the thing you need. You can read more on this further down this page.

On a bike Holding your smartphone in your hand while cycling is incredibly inconvenient and dangerous. Do you want to stay up to date on incoming messages, have you got a planned route, or do you want to keep a close eye on your sports statistics? You'll be happy with the purchase of a bike mount. Do you cycle in all weathers? Go for a waterproof model. That way, you don't run the risk of water damage.

Want to charge your phone on the go?

Active If you actively use your phone in your car, you'll want to maintain the battery level. An active phone mount has an integrated cable with car charger, so you can keep your smartphone up and running. That way, you'll never reach your destination with an empty battery.

Passive A passive mount is a mount that holds your device, but doesn't have an integrated charging cable. That's why their price is often lower than that of active mounts. You can just as easily use your own charging cable and a car charger if you want to charge your device in your car.

Do you want a universal or device-specific mount?
