What is the Best Car Mount and GPS App for Your iPhone/iPad? What Features Should I Look for?

mountDr. Z has a car mount for his iPhone for GPS navigation purposes, NOT TEXTING!

There are so many different car mounts on the market. Which one should you choose?

Dr. Z uses one from “RAM”–you can find it on Amazon. It is a very sturdy mount and comes with a lifetime warranty. It has a strong suction (better than my Garmin) and I prefer using Waze or Google Maps for GPS than my Garmin. I do not yet recommend Apple’s Maps app as it gave me directions to an empty field instead of a store once. It will get better.

The RAM mount has a lifetime warranty. The other day one small part broke, and I filled out a form on their website and got a replacement part in a few days!

You can get an iPad mount and it costs more and using an iPad mount in a car is a bit too big for the driver to use GPS. I have not tried this yet. Again RAM makes great iPad mounts. They even have iPad mounts for your boat, airplane, what have you. You can attach it via suction or a clamp or even a special clamp for your car’s vent.

When using Google Maps or Waze, they have great search, just type the name of the store and the city, and you will get a listing and then tap that store and the map will come up! Waze uses Google search so itsa neat thing to have.

Happy and safe driving (NO TEXTING!!! Dr. Z cares.)
