Abco Tech Air Vent Magnetic Phone Mount

Remember those clunky GPS contraptions that were always skidding off your dashboard? Rental car companies are still handing them out. Skip on the expensive Garmin or TomTom and buy a phone mount for your rental car so you can use Waze or Google Maps on your smartphone. The Abco Tech Air Vent Mount is perfect for a rental car because you just clip and go. It's magnetic so it works with any phone. You can put it right in your field of view on the vents in front of you so you can change music, take hands-free calls, or use navigation apps.
