With legislation in Australia forcing all phones to be in a fixed cradle for legal use, the market for mounts, cradles and docks is ripe for innovation. Logitech have just released a crackingly simple product to solve that problem and more. Case+
Case+ is simply a snap on case for your iPhone 5 or 5s, which has plastic ends and a metal back. The Metal back is the key.
Combine that metal back with a Case+ Drive system, and you’ve got a simple way to snap your phone to the windscreen.
Case+ Drive is a small mounting system – about the size of an espresso coffee, and it has a simple flip-up lid and twist to suction style mounting system.
The flip-up lid twists and folds to the position you want, and then your Case+ covered phone simply snaps on with magnets in the Case+ Drive attaching to the phone’s case.
It’s simple, and it’s easy. Your phone can be in portrait or landscape mode so you’ve got every application covered.
Cases for more phones are likely to drop next year, including the iPhone 5c and Samsung phones, however they are yet to be formally announced.
The Case+ Drive system is $69.96, which includes the mount and the case for your phone.
My only gripe, for some cars you really do need a longer “reach” from the mount, so the phone may be a stretch if placed in the Case+ – however, you’ll know if that’s you based on your current phone mounting needs.
