The best car mount for phones,GPS is the Mountek MT5000 from meritlin.com for $16.99 (with code) .The one you hook to the car vent  ruined the vent blades on my RAV4

 

I want a mount for my car, but I also have a Rav4 and every mount option out there puts my phone DIRECTLY in the sun. I don't like that.

Have never come across a mount like that that didn't have some sort of bouncy/springy affect. I will have to read the reviews and check this one out. Thanks!

One review specifically says that their Nokia Lumia 920 doesn't fit, and the Nexus 5 is bigger than that... :(

I personally don't like it because its too low.

Too low= high risk getting into an accident

Where'd you find the code?  I can't find a current one online anywhere...

So what's the general consensus of the Spigen Neo-Hybrid case?  It looks to be thin and neat, but there have been a few posts here that said it's bulky...

I got this for $8.50 shipped from ebay

 

Spigen SGP Ultra Fit

I have that same case, the black one, which is grippy like the black nexus5 skin.

 

I have this Qi charger too, Nokia RT-900, works great, actually I bought 4 of them (work/home), $18 each, when you get more than 3 items from the AT&T online store, they have in stores too.

No beeping, a tiny led that you can easily cover up if so desired.

I would like to hear from others about the reported bulkiness of this case as well. And does anyone with the Ultra Fit case have issues with sharp edges? Quite a few Amazon reviews mention that.

 

I have Best Buy's version of the Seidio Surface case (BB calls their line "Platinum") on my EVO LTE, and it's exactly what I hope to find for the Nexus 5. Seidio says it is coming, but ETA is an unconvincing "hopefully by the end of the month". I checked Best Buy on Friday and was told they have no N5 accessories yet, and no idea when they would start arriving.

 

EDIT: I ended up grabbing a CruzerLite from Amazon, looks to be closest to what I want. Even if it isn't perfect, it will hold me over until I can check out a Seidio model. Just read that the company is basically a one-man operation and someone shared a private coupon code on SlickDeals that cost him $28k in just 3 hours.. ouch.

The AT&T chargers sound too good to be true... Has anyone been using them for a little while that can still vouch for them?

 

Thanks.

Reviews look good on Amazon

I have the Neo Hybrid. At first i thought the case was huge, and that is coming from an EVO LTE with a Diztronic TPU case. I have got used to it, and i think if i dropped the phone the case would keep it pretty safe. I am a little paranoid from seeing a youtube video of the Nexus 5 drop test. It Insta-Shattered the front glass/screen.

Ouch...  I thought that Gorilla Glass 3 was supposed to be some tough stuff.  

 

Thanks for your thoughts on the case.  I think I am going to pick it up for my N5 afterall.

I have used one for three nights now.  I drop it on when I go to bed and and pick it up in the morning and the battery stats show it as charged.  So far I am happy with it.

    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — — The old permit expired for this site without any work being done but a new permit was just approved a few days ago for a T-Mobile site at this address. Description mentions 3 antennas with 2 RRUs per sector. My guess is they're doing something similar to what they did at 360 Furman St in Brooklyn where they broadcast Band 2/66 and n25/41 from one antenna. It's a bit of a downgrade considering the site it's replacing was a full build with Ericsson 6449s. 
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
