Smartphone Cradle

Post by BrownsFan12 » April 7th, 2019, 10:23 am

OK. I know that this is not really important in the scheme of life, but how do you ladies and gentlemen mount your iphones in the cradle that sits on the monitor? I see photos of them sitting centered above the PM, but I have to hang mine off of the right or left edge, because if I center it, it activates my iPhone X's buttons. Thoughts? Definately a first world problem, I know.

My Android I have to leave hanging out a little bit on one side so as to avoid power or volume buttons being squeezed. My phone also has a squeeze response for Google Assistant, but I just back out of it then load up my ergdata or liverowing beta.

What I used b4 my wife gave me her phone cradle:

Now I’m a shameless conformist:

As average phone footprint approaches tablet dimensions, the selfie stick mandible is too small.

Silly cone ipod touch cover (iphone 5, SE size). Griffon or Snugg I think. The frog (also jigglyjelly) is my spirit guide. :mrgreen:

I gave up with the C2 cradle as it just presses the buttons and I dont even have a very big phone.
Now I just rest across the foot rests.Never had an issue with it moving or dropping the bluetooth, also easy to swipe left and right on ErgData in this position.

If you go onto thingiverse, there are quite a few C2 mounts people have come up with for phones and tablets. If you have your own 3D printer you can print them out or get one of the online shops to do it for you.
