The nGroove Snap Uses Your Car’s CD Slot To Mount Your Smartphone At An Optimal Position

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The worst place for your smartphone to be while you’re driving, is in your hands. But let’s face it: very few of us keep it in our pockets. It’s usually lying around in the center console, where you can glance at it if you get a text or a call. The nGage Snap is a mount specially designed to place your phone in the middle of the dashboard, right where you can comfortably see it. It has a specially designed

“microblade, small enough to fit into the slot of your CD player, narrow enough to hide behind your phone, and sturdy enough to withstand the rockiest of roads.

The way we designed the blade is such that it does not go far enough into your CD slot to activate the CD player mechanism, so that means you can still have a CD in your player while the mount is installed.”

Like you, we’re a little skeptical that this would actually work and not break anything, but we’re willing to suspend our disbelief when we consider that we’ve never actually tried it, while the nGage’s designers probably have tested it extensively and found it to be possible. If it works, it’s pretty slick. It does require you to stick a 0.55mm thin, removable, non-permanent adhesive backing on your device, which will snap to the magnets on the mount. If you can stomach that, in the name of convenience, you can head over to the IndieGogo campaign and pledge $25 for yours. It’s fully funded so you should be getting it in July.

    I have a Mountek CD slot mount for my car and it’s pretty nice. The magnet in the case though is pretty smart. I might have to upgrade.
