Recently I got myself a new ride and as some of you, I encounter with a problem. There is no way to put iPod output on my car because it is Infiniti with BOSE sound system. I would not spend money to replace my factory BOSE system with aftermarket speakers and stereo that would allow me to put iPod in the glove compartment. So ProClip was very nice to send me interesting product for review. What they send me is mount for iPod specially for my Infiniti. ProClip mounts will work with any car and nearly any products.
ProClip mounts consist of two parts. First part is different for every car because the first part attaches to your car before anything else attaches anywhere. ProClip has a web site where you can order correct car mount for your vehicle. They cost about $30. The part comes with very detailed instruction on how to install the first mount to your car.
Second part is the holder for your electronic equipment. I needed holder for iPod classic, so that’s what I got. ProClip has holders for many different GPS Navigations, phones, and iPods. For iPod classic, there were about 8 different types of holders, ranging from $40 to $70. The one I got cost about $50. Just like car mount, the holder comes with detailed instructions with pictures. The holder I got has socket underneath for apple connector, so there is docket for iPod on the holder. To put your iPod in and charge all you have to do is put it on the holder, of course if you have charger connected to that holder.
Products like that are usually rated by the way they look. The car mount holds the iPod and the holder very well. The car mount can be removed and reinstalled very easy. The car mount color is very similar to the interior color of my car, which is a big plus. The iPod holder is made of a cloth, so it is impossible to scratch your iPod even if you want to. The holder is pretty deep, about 3 inch, but it is not noticeable from driver’s view.
In my opinion, price is little too high for the product. The product is outstanding, but $80 for complete mount is a little too much in my opinion, however, for consumers that have BOSE sound system in their cars, it might not be a problem. Another thing is the deep holder for iPod, it doesn’t bother me, but for some people one inch deep holder may be very important.
I did not find any better solution for those of us that can’t get iPod output for car, ProClip is the best mounting solution! ProClip car iPod mount gets BestPCReviews.com Editor’s Choice!
