Driver and passenger safety is top priority on the road, so finding a good mounting location that doesn’t block your view simply comes down to personal preference – and RAM® has you covered with a variety of options.
Mounting your device to your vehicle’s dashboard is a great way to keep your device in your line of vision without the distraction on your windshield. Our Flex Adhesive Base and Portable Friction Dashboard Base make great solutions for those who want to avoid windshield and drill-down mounts.
Pairing the RAM® Tough-Mag™ with an adhesive plate turns this industrial-strength magnetic base into a mounting setup in unique spaces in your vehicle, eliminating the need to drill into a vehicle’s dash or other flat surfaces. Pair these two products with any B size arm and device holder.
The RAM® Stubby™ cup holder base is a favorite for low-profile mounting solutions. This base is weighted and has flexible support fins surrounding it, so that when you insert and twist the Stubby™ into your cupholder, you create a secure hold for your device.
