I have read many reviews of items that stick to dash or glass that mention they loosen in hot weather. I live in Florida and hot weather is common here. Have also read where the sticky or suction cup leaves mark on the dash. Was tempted by the sticky mount that was small enough to mount on the display as that would solve the mark but would still suffer from heat loosening it.Curious as to why people would want a vent mounted one that blocks the vent, even if it only does partially, vs the one that sticks to the console and uses a magnet?
+ to this. Your phone mount will work with any dash mount so if you change cars you only have to buy a different mount for the vehicle. I will be watching the Proclip site for a 17 CR-V mount.ProclipUSA hasn't come out with one for the 2017 model yet, but if you value mounts that do not shake or vibrate one bit, you should look into them. They are expensive (approx $60) but are heads and tails over any mount I have ever had. I've put in an email to them about when they will release the 2017 model and when I hear back, I'll update.
But....... wouldn't that just block the ..passenger vent?I used the vent mount because I didn't want anything that leaves residue and have had plenty experience with adhesive mounts failing. If you're concerned about blocking the vent, put the mount on the passenger side. I researched ProClip. When it makes a CR-V mount, I will probably switch to that. It is possible to use a console mount, but the cost for all the parts to make it work would be close to $150.
To me, trying to keep a car in factory condition is like when my parents had all their couches all wrapped in plastic for years so they wouldn't get dirty.But....... wouldn't that just block the ..passenger vent?
I've been using the sticky magnet mounts for a couple of years. Never had one fail. I remove the stock tape and replace it with heavy duty double sided tape. I bought the car for me, not the next potential used car buyer. When I sold my last car I gave the buyer a back plate and left the mount in place. He saw that as a feature.
That being said, I understand logic of some people wanting to keep their car in original factory condition.
