After using it for a day of driving, I don't know how long the sticky pad will last. it seems to be less sticky already. I think the magnetic disk is a much better idea.

Additional information

Olixar Dash Genie v2 Universal In-Car Dashboard and Windscreen Holder

Mount your mobile device on either the dashboard or windscreen

The Olixar Dash Genie allows you to mount your mobile device securely on either the dash or windscreen. This allows you to use your device for a number of different things, whether it's for a sat nav, music playback or just for mounting it in a comfortable position - keeping your phone in sight without blocking your view of the road.

Dash Genie v2 In-Car Dashboard and Windscreen Holder

Even if your dashboard has a dimpled or textured surface, the Olixar Dash Genie still offers maximum grip so your phone will remain secure.

Rubberised backing and foam feet provide incredible grip

This holder is designed to secure your mobile device at any angle. It does so using an innovative rubber material, gripping securely to the device. It is also designed so that if you are travelling over uneven road surfaces, the vibrations will not affect the Genie's grip. Furthermore, this fantastic material is adhesive-free and reusable over time.

Dash Genie v2 In-Car Dashboard and Windscreen Holder

PLEASE NOTE: The Olixar Dash Genie is ideally suited for use with flat surfaces and will not work with curved handsets such as the HTC One

Universal design accommodates virtually any phone

Unlike other car holders which include jaws or clamps to hold your device, the Genie features a universal design that will accommodate phones and other devices (mp3 players) of all sizes.

Olixar Dash Genie v2 Universal In-Car Dashboard and Windscreen Holder

Featured ball joint allows multi-angle positioning

The ball and socket joint rotate through a complete 360°, making it easy to find a comfortable angle while driving.

Dash Genie v2 In-Car Dashboard and Windscreen Holder

Open-faced design allows for drop and go use

Ideal for one-handed use, the Olixar Dash Genie's open faced design means that you can simply place your phone in the holder, press it against the rubberised backing and you're ready to go.

Olixar Dash Genie v2 Universal In-Car Dashboard and Windscreen Holder

Suction cup with lock latch to securely hold the Olixar Dash Genie

The suction pad features a unique lock switch, locking the holder on your windscreen so it won't fall off - even if you're going over bumps or going around corners.

Ensures your device remains safe and secure at all times.

Dash Genie v2 In-Car Dashboard and Windscreen Holder

Easily cleaned and re-usable over time

As dust slowly builds up over time, the adhesive properties of the Olixar Dash Genie may reduce. Simply wipe the pad with a little water and wipe with a clean cloth. (be sure not to use solvents or alcohol wipes). This will restore the Dash Genie's magic holding properties.

Looked good. however
This phone holder looked like it might suit my needs. However, the phone (Huawei P9) failed to stay in the holder. Also the holder fell from the dash. The holder is too small with not enough room to for the phone especially if stuck to the windscreen

Good gadget
Great suction cup base and good phone holder for most applications, not great on bumpy roads or to mount on the windscreen as the sticky bit that holds the phone gets tired after a while and phone falls off but great in more conventional applications

no good for my car
My car windscreen is too steep to hold my phone in a vertical position and the dashboard has no flat surfaces to hold the device. The arm attached to the ball joint is too short to allow full adjustment on the windscreen. Good idea but didn't work for me.

Great holder
This is a great piece of kit which does exactly what is says on the tin. The fact that you can convert this from portrait to landscape is really useful and the phone sits extremely well within the device. Also the fact that it can be windscreen or dashboard mounted is really handy. All in all a very useful addition to my Audi

Olixar dashboard phone holder
Great product
I have bought car phone holders before but this device is great my previous car phone holders on the windscreen have been cumbersome and awkward to hold the phone. By having it on the dash board it doesn't block your view or distract you from viewing the road ahead , an excellent device I have shown it to family and friends which they are thinking of buying

Good and stable
I am really happy with this product. My phone attaches to it well. The only thing is that it's tricky to get off the windscreen so I leave it on the windscreen and pray that no one breaks into my car thinking I've got something in the glove box worth taking...! I am happy with this though and spent a long time deciding which phone holder to buy.

Olixar Dash Genie v2
Neat unit.
I bought this unit as it was recommended by Autoexpress. It arrived quickly and I was impressed by the small size. Assembly was quick and the unit attached firmly to the dashboard. It could also be removed and repositioned easily. The sticky pad for holding the phone is very effective just by placing the phone in the unit. Removing the phone can be a two handed job as it sticks so well. I've only had the mount a short time so i will have to see how this settles and whether the sticky becomes less clingy. Altogether I think the unit is worthy of the recommendations.

Great product, great service
This phone holder was delivered quickly and we'll packaged to my home address. The original was missing a part but the returns process was simple (and free) and the replacement was with me quickly. I highly reccomend it for commuting and leisure, it holds my phone steady and is adjustable as described. Thanks a lot!

Really happy with product, would recommend.
Really happy with the product but one issue I do have is that the sticky pad stays stuck to the phone when I remove it from the holder. I have had to super glue the sticky pad back to the holder to prevent this happening. Otherwise this holder was just what I required and have not issue with it adhering to dashboard or windscreen. Would recommend this product and MobileZap.

The best I've tried but could be better
Firstly, the suction base sticks like a limpet and keeps the phone holder rock solid so top marks there.The sticky pad that holds the phone worked fine on the phone back case (smooth plastic) and even in sharp turns the phone stayed put (good as it's a 5.5inch screen phone). Not so good with a silicone gel phone protector fitted which has a slippery finish and I lost the phone a few times. I overcame this by sticking a 1mm thick strong magnet above the sticky pad and putting another inside the protector. Overall I'm very impressed.

Good Item with a big BUT.....read if you want a window mount
Read this if your phone is more than 10cm long and you want to use a window mount position. Unless you have an almost vertical windscreen this will not work because the connecting arm is so short the phone cannot stand upright. I have tried it in two different SUV's and three saloon cars and none will allow a window mount with the phone in the vertical position.

Just so neat and simple!
So many car phone holders have various jaws, claws and brackets to make a specific phone fit that they end up being ugly. The Genie v2, on the other hand is simplicity itself and all the better for it: Whatever model of phone you are using, it will not obscure any of the buttons or connections, you just end up with the phone apparently hanging in mid air in front of you! The red dot grips the back of the handset, at first maybe a bit too strongly, I once pulled it off, but it goes back where it belongs easily enough. Unlike many phone holders that I have had, the suction of the base of the Oliver has never came loose or fallen off. I would strongly recommend this one above all others.

Olixar Dash Genie v2
Simple ideas are best!
Having just bought a Sony Experia, I tried to sort through the minefield of different in car holders, worrying about which ones would leave the side buttons clear and still allow connection of the USB lead. So many of them are ugly, with various claws, clamps, arms etc., so when I saw the Dash Genie v2 I was immediately taken with its simple, unfussy appearance. At such a reasonable price, could it work as well as it looked? The answer is yes, my phone just sits there and I have no worries about it slipping, having used it extensively recently. Speed bumps, winding country roads etc no problem!

Olixar Dash Genie - Good Value, takes a couple times to stick properly
Product is of good value, however, when assembled for first use, the adhesive bottom (which sticks to dash/ windscreen) kept un-sticking from the dash after a couple of minutes of holding the weight of my device (Sony Z5 Compact), meaning I was trying to re-apply to dash every few minutes, until I moved the Dash Genie to another spot on the dashboard - now appears to be more stable when in use!

Olixar Dash Genie v2
Not as good as some reviews suggest
Firstly, the base only stays put if it sits on a very flat surface. Any curvature at all and it won't be happy. The sticky pad that holds your phone in place is also less than perfect, so the lack of any clamps on the side to hold the phone means it flies out of the holder on occasion. However, when it does work it holds the phone fairly well, exhibiting good levels of stability on rough roads, making the screen easy to read.

super sticky!
Great little phone holder.. Really sticky pads for window and phone. Good because it has a little shelf which makes it easier to manage when placing on and off all day. As a temp truck driver I'm always moving from vehicle to vehicle so It's small, light volume makes it great for my over-stuffed work bag. Excellent!

Secure
Holder is secure, sticks on a surface and stays there without worry. Only concern is the sticky part on which the phone rests on itself, it loses it's stickiness fast but the actual holder which rests on the car/surface itself is high quality.

Not as good as it should be
I like the idea of this but unfortunately the "sticky gel" came out of the holder (stuck to the phone case). It is essentially not much use to me now although I can press the gel back into the holder, it comes out each time I remove the phone. I had previously used the iBolt iProDock 5 which worked very well, but now with an iPhone 6s and LifeProof case the iBolt doesn't open wide enough to hold the phone when in it's case.

Grips all dashboards that I have used it in. Holds my note 3 when using it as a sat nav with no problems.

Value for money
I recently bought my Olixar Dash Genie v2 Universal In-Car Dashboard and Windscreen Holder and am very pleased with it. It is very easy to install and holds the phone securely in either the vertical or horizontal position. The phone can also be twisted to enable easier viewing. It will be interesting to see how long the sticky spot lasts. I consider this product great value for money.

No Good
The suction pad that attaches to the dashboard is very good but the red adhesive area that holds the phone fails after a few minutes. Vibration results in loss of adhesion and connecting a power lead also causes the phone to leave the holder. I'm looking for an alternative but suspect I'll have to consider Brodit again despite the cost.

sticks like glue - very adjustable
Great little holder. It can come off the dash after extreme heat but is easy to put back, I usually clean and wet the sucker. I leave it situated on the dash permanently. I thought it had lost its 'stickiness' - the red gel which the devise is held on by, but contacted MobileFun and they told me to wash it with a spot of washing up liquid and it's back in service. The red gel area does start to look a little untidy/dirty after a long while and I haven't managed to clean it. Overall it's great and I'm buying another for my 2nd vehicle.

I have tried a number of different phone/satnav holders over time, but this one is the best I have used. It,s piece of cake to set up And I have tried it on the dash in different positions including on curved section,no problem. I am using it to hold an iphone5 using GPS software. The other thing is it hardly wobbles, unless it is very rough road.All in all this is brilliant piece of kit and good value, which I would reccomend.

Sticks to the dashboard like a limpet! A little problem with the phone mount as my phone kept falling off after about 20 mins. I was mounting the phone in portrait and then turning through 90 deg to get landscape operation for a satnav app. When I put the phone in landscape first, so that the cradle clips were at the bottom, the phone stayed in place. The picture on the back of the product packaging appears to show the cradle in a horizontal position when in use.

A true dash genie
this is the best holder I've tried, it stays on the dash, it's not big so doesn't obstruct your view, will hold a small to medium or a light weight large phone, needs a larger sticky pad to hold a heavier phone, my HTC one m8 stays put in portrait position but falls off in landscape positio hence only 4 stars , I'm very pleased with the dash genie.

Excellent product which i guarantee you wont be disappointed with. I was a bit worried that the phone wouldnt be that secure but after living with it for a week i'm absolutely made up with it. My Z3 is a big phone but its rock solid on the Dash Genie which is mounted on a curved part of my dashboard so its really unobtrusive. Top product.

Should have known better than to buy cheap
Dashboard Genie looks good and is a neat size. Mounted it with my smart phone on the clean dust free car dash and off we went driving into the sunshine. Thirty minutes later the contraption fell off the dashboard. I then held it in my hand by the stem, while using the phone as satnav. Then the phone fell out of the cradle. I do not think the adhesive and suction are strong enough.

Exactly what I was looking for. It sticks easily to the dash (and can be removed just as easily), the phone sticks tightly, and it swivels for the best viewing position. Great price and only a week to deliver to my rural location in Australia. Highly recommended if you want a holder that has a low impact on your car, holds tight and doesn't leave a smear on your windscreen.

Nokia 625
Wish I'd bought one earlier...
This simple device is perfect. Sits neatly on my dashboard and holds my larger than average mobile, Nokia 625 securely in place, does not fall out over bumps or when I swerve or go around corners. Sticky pad really holds tight. I can turn it to help me use my phone as a Sat Nav. When my daughter used my car, she poped her iPhone on and was so impressed, she wants one. I can view screen really well and tilt as needed. Can charge phone whilst it sits tight on this device. Worth the money and arrived very quickly... Don't laugh but thinking of getting one to use on my office desk :-) !

Dashboard Genie V2 in Car Dashboard and Windscreen Holder
In place in a dash!
I use this with my Apple S4 phone. Really pleased with this piece of kit. Effortlessly easy to fit and does exactly what it says. No movement, no sticky residue and can be used in portrait or landscape. One very happy customer.

Finally!
At last a car mount that works. Sticks like cement to a dashboard, although it shakes a little, this is the car's suspension's problem not the holder. On the windscreen this baby is perfect. Really impressed.

Incapable of supporting my Galaxy Note 3
Mobilefun kindly exchanged the original car holder I ordered because it was incompatable with the space available in my Yaris. Unfortunatly this holder was unable to support the wieght of a large smart phone because the adhesive area is too small and so will need returning again.

fantastic site
I needed to get a mobile holder for the car and looking at other usual popular sites for ages and couldn't find what I was looking for until I was recommended by a friend to try this site. Found what I was looking for in 5 mins just put the make and model of phone and what I was was searching for. I read the other customer reviews some were great and a few were not ,so was in two minds to purchase the item but as a friend recommended the site I did and so glad as had no problems and used this site a few times and will again.

I did not think it would hold a large smart phone so well really sticky may be too sticky at first but becomes easier with use.The base has an equally firm fixing and the whole thing is compact.Very pleased.

LG G2 Phone falls off ...
This may be a universal holder but the LG G2 does not stay on it. It will stay for about fifteen minutes after having cleaned the back red sticky pad, but then dislodges. This is with a case on the phone, and I have not tried it with the case removed. Two star rating as the unit stays extremely well on the dash - it's just the phone holder part that is the problem. Smaller/lighter phones and without the case maybe ok - but not tested that out.

Spot on, just the job.
Great little bit of kit, with rubberised suction mount on the base. Had this a week now and its still not moved or fallen off. We also use it for the satnav. You can have the phone in portrait or landscape without having to adjust the mount, it just sticks.

Does exactly what it says! Fits well on a curved dashboard and holds the phone easily in portrait or landscape without any need to remove the phone from its normal case. Haven't yet been using it long but if it continues like this I'm delighted.

Very good product
I watched the video again which seemed pretty good and it completely acted like the video in real life. The phone sticks to it really well, the sucker works brilliantly. I do wonder how long the stickiness will last (just add water it says on the video - time will tell on that one). I have a large phone in a ballistic case, so it is pretty big, moderately heavy, wide and it stuck on magnificently. The suction cup worked really well on my curved dashboard. The phone didn't wobble at all when going around bends. It really is a great buy. As such it would fit any phone of any width. You will not be disappointed.

Seemed awkward, then I looked at the packaging...
I tried this out in the obvious ways, but none of them would stay stuck and support my phone in landscape. However, when I tried it as per the third picture on the front of the packaging, it actually worked! It's better than what it replaced because it's easy to keep the charge connector clear, and the phone stayed put, with the holder remaining in place, the whole time. I hope this hint helps others. This will certainly do the job for me.

So happy with this. You jump in the car and with one hand you chuck the phone on it and go. No fiddling with arms, just straight in and go. Keep the gel clean (just wipe it once every 2 months and she's a keeper. Impresses people due to it's unique design and gel tech. Ruddy well priced as well!

Perfect!
It does exactly what it says on the tin. The DashGenie sticks to almost any surface with its suction cup and grippy material. I stuck mine on a dimpled dashboard where other mobile holders could not get a grip. It is easy to hold the mobile in place once you get in the car... just place it on the DashGenie and it automatically grips in place... no clips to scratch your mobile phone. To remove the phone, just peel it off gently... No residue on the phone. With time the DashGenie accumulates dust and the grippy material loses its strength somewhat... just wash with cold water and wipe dry, and it's as good as new... literally. I've been using mine for a couple of years without any trouble... Now I buy them as gifts.

Great grippy holder, works fine with larger phones.
I have been using the original version of this dash mount (Dash Genie) for a couple of years now with a few different phones and find it works brilliantly with them, including my current S3. The sticky material leaves no residue, and can be made newly sticky with a simple clean with water when it gets a bit linty. So impressed with it that I have just purchased the new version for my other half to use with her S3 and car kit, and this version has addressed the only issue I have with the original by adding a ball/socket joint giving a greater range of movement and making windscreen mounting possible for those that want it.

Sony Xperia SP
Dash Genie v2
The product is well built but there are a few issues with what is realistically possible compared to the description given. Yes it will fit to a textured dash, but it must not be curved. The sticky pad really doesn't like matt finish phone covers. If you have a large phone like my Xperia SP when mounted to my windscreen (VRS Octavia)I cant tile the holder back with the phone in place. The reach from the suction cup to the holder needs to be longer. When in the holder my phone is actually angled forward from the vertical. Hope this helps people.

Reasonably priced, just the job!
I ordered two of these for both my wife's and my own car. I have fixed it in my car, but have not yet installed it in my wife's car. It fixes well to the inside of the car and in a way that it causes no damage. The biggest problem is deciding where to fit it in a modern car! The sticky pad holds a large phone securely (mine is a Nokia 720). In short it is a good product, reasonably priced and easy to install. Now I need to find the time to fit the second one in my wife's car.

great product but flawed through use
This great little unit is in my van stuck to the dash. Had no problems with sticking to the plastic (unlike my other holder that is in wife's car on windscreen then floor then windscreen again...) but can be used either way if needed. Smaller flat backed phones and my nexus 4 sit fine but if you need to remove regularly (delivery driver possibly) then the adhesive loses through time. I have to take it off once a week and rub it under the tap to refresh adhesion but other than that, fantastic kit and wonderful concept but you could get fed up if you had to do it daily.

Something you can't do without
I needed a holder for the car urgently & saw this Dash Genie on offer. All the reviews about this little gadget were good so I went ahead & ordered. When I first put it in the car it seemed great, even going over all the speed bumps it stayed in place. However my daughter used it for her phone, I later put my phone on it & going over a speed bump it rolled off the dash. I'm quite cautious now, I'm not sure if she loosened it when taking her phone off or it didn't stick properly. It really is a good little gadget & would buy again. My husband said it looks like something from 'Startreck'

Sticks Like S4
This is a super product. Sticks really well to my dimpled dashboard and is ideal for my S4 which has the Samsung flip cover on it. As far as I can see there is no other holder that would work for this phone with the cover on as it still allows you to open the flap whether in portrait or landscape orientation. I can only give 4 stars because there is not quite enough adjustment on the ball fixing to get the position exactly perfect.

Not what I was Expecting
The product turned up promptly and I was surprised to find it was a sticky pad and not a magnet to hold the phone. It proved to be quite effective at first at holding the phone but with the onset of the warm weather the phone has taken to flying round the car without warning and I am now worried about driving with the windows open in case my phone flys out the window. This after 1 weeks use.

Dash Genie Universal Dashboard Windscreen Holder
Simple, easy to assemble and neat
I bought the phone holder to replace another that had recently broken. The Dash Genie is amazingly easy to assemble and despite my dash being slightly rough and curved the soft gel base pad stuck instantly. It is very firm and the phone doesn't move. I had previously stuck it to the window but thought I'd try it on the dash and it was an even better location. Close to the steering wheel and allows me to use my Sat Nav app. The soft gel support is incredibly sticky and no matter how many corners or turns are taken the phone is stuck fast. Well made of sturdy plastic and well worth the price. Excellent value and I would heartily recommend this. Tempted to purchase another just to keep if this ever breaks (although I doubt it) Would make an excellent desk holder for your phone as well.

Sticks pretty much anywhere and holds the device securely. I didn't buy his for my car as I have a built-in SatNav, I bought this because I regularly hire a van and use the Navigation on my phone, SO I wanted something that would fit on a dashboard, or windscreen ... or anywhere that was also close enough to the power source (cigarette lighter socket) on various models of vehicle. This item is perfect.

I wanted something for so long to put in my car that I could guarantee I wouldn't lose in the footwell taking a hard right turn especially off road and boy did this holder live up to its name as genius. I have the iPhone 4S and it's in a melkco leather hard cover and it still sticks to this holder like a magnet I'm so pleased I don't have to keep removing it from the cover so I can stick it easily on the go. It's also true about the foot sucker it holds on my old land rover dash which to say the least Is NOT an even surface. Thanks I will definitely be recommending this to my friends. 😊

I particularly wanted a in car mount which I could manoeuvre around my dash without leaving sticky marks! This product does exactly that, but also fits onto the windscreen if you would prefer. Also the sticky patch on the mount which your phone sticks to, really does hold fast! All in all a fantastic product which I shall be purchasing for my Daughter too!

Will not stick
Oredered this product as it seemed to fit all of my requirements, and has received much better reviews than similar products. Very disppointed, as after only a week, it will not stay in place for more than 5-10 minutes, slowly but surely peeling away from the surface. This even occurs if used as a phone stand on my table top, let alone the car dashboard! For the money, I would not rate this as even a 1-star product!

Certainly does as it says for the Xperia Z
Absolutely does what it says to the letter. I have stuck it to every kind of surface in my 2009 Fiesta without a single problem hooning around the back roads of Perthshire whilst it clings tenaciously to my new Xperia Z like it was stuck on with epoxy resin. Releasing is simple, just a slow firm peel gripping the top of the phone. Give it a clean once in a while - I've done it once in a fortnight - with a lint-free damp cloth and a mild detergent - I used a dab of hand soap on a piece of kitchen roll - and a quick rinse. Let it dry and it's back to max sticky!30 seconds to clean, a few minutes to dry. Same applies to the base. One mild word of warning .. loosen off the retaining nut on the ball and socket before twisting the orientation or you may loosen the pad's grip on the device just by shearing as you twist. Tighten again when you are done. This is easily accomplished to the required tensions, simply by trapping the nut between index and middle finger and twisting in the appropriate direction. This is perfectly sufficient force to loosen and tighten the nut to safe tolerances without using your thumb or having to dismount the unit from the dash etc. All in all the perfect gizmo for me .. cannot vouch for other device surfaces but the glass on the Xperia is perfect as a contact. I'm buying another one to use as a desk stand and another for the bedroom .. as useful as that! And because the stand leaves access for all but the most esoteric of micro-usb locations, it's saved me £20 on a charging dock, and it's more flexible. Braw, as we say in Perth.

As a driving instructor I was looking for something that was small enough to be not in the way but that worked. This has been excellent, the holders suction is really good and the phone sticks to the pad and does not move, and my drivers certainly put it to the test!!! More than pleased and would highly recommend. Only one thing on the downside, when twisted horizontally the phone did not stay on, so I just leave it upright.

The blurb with this holder claims that it can stick to the plastic of the facia. No it can't. As soon as i put my nokia on it, they both fell to the floor. It sticks very well on the windscreen, but it will not adhere to patterned plastic.

Not suitable for Samsung Note 2
As far as a holder it is not bad. The sticky pad dries up pretty quickly and often needs cleaning. It is advertised as being compatible with the Samsung Note 2. It does fit, however on most windscreens you cannot get the angle, as the phone is too big. You need a holder with a neck that extends away from the windscreen. Not so much a problem if you mount it on the dash. So if you have a Note 2, don't bother. For normal size phones, it's average.

Solid but damaged my dashboard
Held my iPhone 5 well on my trip to work. However be aware - Dash Genie left a nasty ring mark on my dash after I removed it - nothing mentioned in the description. The sticky suction pad might be best used on your windscreen. It's also not easy removing your phone from the sticky pad.

Dash Genie - Perfect for my requirements
I do not usually write reviews but I thought this phone holder was so good, it justified one. I bought the Dash Genie for my LG Nexus 4 E960. It is a fairly large phone so I was a little worried whether the ball joint and Sticky patches would hold the weight of the phone. In my circumstances, neither of these have been an issue. I received it over a week ago. The resistance on the ball-joint is just right, so I can easily re-position the phones angle with one hand while driving, yet it does not move over speed bumps or when you touch the screen. A few people have reported that their phone has fallen off the holder. Unless the sticky patch deteriorates very quickly, I cannot see this being an issue with mine. Actually, the only criticism I have for this holder is that its 'difficult' to get the phone off it. Removing the phone is a two-handed operation and needs a firm pull to remove it. I initially had worries that the force would lift my film protector on the back but so far this has not happened. The small platforms on the bottom seem to be more to stop the phone from turning on the pad than actually supporting any weight. I expect the stickiness to lessen as it collects dirt. (This can be restored by cleaning with water). I have attached the holder to my dashboard which has a bumpy profile on it. I have a '06 Ford, it has never fallen off and I do not drive particularly slowly. I gave the dash a good clean before attaching the 'Genie' The Nexus camera is still exposed when mounted so for those wishing to record their journeys can do so. There is also adequate clearance to have the power cable plugged in.

Brilliantly simple and very effective
At last, a smart 'phone / sat nav holder that actually works on both dashtop and screen while taking up minimal space - and portable as well! I've mounted it on my dashboard as close as I need it and there is no interference with the 'phones' side or base controls. No rattles or other noises, no clasps required and very secure. Why can't they all be like this? Would make a great gift as well!

Does the job perfectly hassle free
Easy to install - just stick it down where you need it. The sticker is strong and it seems like it will last. The arm has a pivot so it can be moved and rotated so that it is in perfect line of sight. The phone holds down and once in place won't move at all. Really happy with this as it is cheap - it will hold any device and is hassle free to use.

Disapointed
The Genie took over a week to arrive although I paid first class post for, when we sent an email asking why we hadn't received it the reply was very slow and didn't exactly help. As for the Genie on the first journey it dropped off twice, the first time I thought maybe I hadn't pressed it on enough,but then it happened again about 5 miles further on, I will try it on the next trip out and then decide whether it should be returned or not. At the moment the jury is out. That said I do like it and seemed very secure to the dashboard it is whether the phone will stay put.

Dash Genie v2
Sits and dash and button safe
Unlike many other in car holders, this one doesn't interfere with the side buttons on my phone (Xperia U). I have the genie permanently mounted on my dashboard and it doesn't look out of place. It's a pity it doesn't seem to stick on the dimpled part of VW Sharan dashboard but, luckily, the centre panel is smooth and suitable. Good value, and the Genie sticks well to both my phone and car :)

Perfect dashboard phone holder.
I have a car with a textured dashboard,so I wasn't convinced that a dashboard mounted phone holder was going to work but as you can mount the Dash Genie on the windscreen as well, I thought I'd give it a try. The device works really well. It sticks like glue to the dashboard and holds the phone in either portrait or landscape without problems. The sticky pad that holds the phone to the dash genie is very clever. Its really sticky but it doesn't leave any residue on the phone when you remove it. Perfect, and cheep too.

Great product and great value
This is by far the best cradle i have ever had. Great value and very easy to use. The product sticks to my dash very firmly and the phone sticks to the sticky red circle very well without leaving any residue on the phone itself. you do need to be mindful of applying some pressure so the phone sticks well to the cradle. i didn't do this on one occasion and my phone fell off the cradle whilst driving. only ever happend once, otherwise the phone doesn't ever move. highly recommended and blows everything else out of the market based on its value!

Two and a half, man!
If you look at the full review list you'll find a previous review comment I added after using this device for 2 months. I still think it is an excellent phone holder, though thought it sensible to post some additional information here to help folks make a choice. I've now been using this holder for about 2.5 years, using it at least twice a day every week day and sometimes at the weekend. The "sticky" pad is starting to seriously degrade now, sometimes having chunks pull off it, staying on the back of the phone. This is making it look shabby but it is still working. I found initially that saliva was not a good way to make it work. These days I have to moisten it to have it work, and do with a quick (transferred) lick. Of course using saliva may have caused much of the degradation - I can't say. I think it is getting close to the point where I need to replace it. And I will happily do so with the same product. Especially given the price!

This dash holder actually sticks to almost any surface and once placed there you will have to use extensive force to move it. And positioning is so easy that you cannot believe it, then there is no shaking or moving of any kind once you place your Phone, smart phone or tablet on it, seams it will stay there forever, i love it.... and I will buy one or two more for my wife and my father....

The Dash Genie fixes well to smooth surfaces but not the dimpled finish of my dashboard. Adheres to window but you cannot then open it fully! I have a gel cover for my phone so should adhere to the sticky pad well (I thought) but it has fallen off twice!

Mixed review really. If I remove the case on my phone and press the phone hard against the pad, it holds, even when turning round corners. But with a case, it doesn't adhere very well. My phone's gone flying through the car whilst going round a roundabout.

All in all very good
I use this for my Palm phone and saadly because of the shape of the Palm it's not very good and falls off regularly. However when I use my HTC Desire it holds it fine and rarely if ever falls off, the angle adjustment is good and doesn't come loose. Once in a while you do have to wash the dashboard sucker and the red sticky pad as they get dusty and loose their grip eventually. Overall I'm very pleased with it and, as my young son says, it looks like a rocket :-)

Dash Genie in car dash holderv2
Hold That Mobile Telephone!
Dear Sirs. "Straight out of the box" The Dash Genie on held on tight to my Mobile Telephone. The Dash Genie was placed with no fuss onto my Farm Tractors windscreen in a trice and it stays there! We were then ready to bale up the silage fodder and also keep in touch with The World! The Dash Genie keeps my Mobile safe and also out of my pockets so that I am more comfortable driving my tractor. I can now see the mobile actuate and I do not miss any calls. If by chance I am not wearing my Jabra Wave "Blue Tooth" device it does not matter to much as can I "see" the call, accept the call, stop the silage baling and then answer the incoming call! At the finish I can remove the mobile quickly, move onwards and transfer the mobile elsewhere. All in all The Dash Genie is an excellent and well thought out devise that I now rely on. I have bought 4 more for my other Tractors, Land Rover Disco and Scoobie Do car. I sincerely recommend The Dash Genie! The Dash Genie is OK! Rob.

Not Really Successful
Last year when in the US I bought an iPhone Car Holder which is the same design as this. It was - and still is - great. Works all the time. The sticky pad holds the phone and it stays put. Having two cars, I bought this product for my wife to use. It looks identical to my other one but the sticky just doesn't hold the phone for any length of time. So the whole thing is useless. Now I'm looking for a grip version which will attach to the base unit.

This is a fantastic car holder.

So even when not being used, I leave it on the dash. 10 out of 10!!!

Waste of money.
Product is advertised as working with dimpled dashboards but it would not stick to the dash of my Clio for more than 10 seconds. Stuck to the windscreen fine but then the boom isn't long enough to accommodate my iPhone 4s without it touching the windscreen. Not that it would have made any difference as my phone fell off within seconds anyway. Very disappointed.

It does indeed stick to dashboard
Was pleasantly surprised with this product as the red dot is sticky substance which is very similar to those florescent toys you may have had a kid and threw against the wall and watched it crawled down the wall. However the stickiness is stronger and does as advertised. The base in the photo looks like your conventional sat nav suction cup mount, but it isn't it has the same sticky stuff as the red dot, the suction cup just adds that bit extra sticking power. The strange thing was it stuck better on the dashboard than the (unused at the time) plastic shiny disc that the sat nav suction cup mount normally sticks too. Had it a few weeks now, and still not has not lost it’s stickiness. So have not tried the wash it with water to revive stickiness as yet. The phone holder looks flimsy but is strong enough to hold my phone in portrait or landscape modes.

It has held a Sony Xperia S OK on normal roads - haven't tried ay challenging surfaces. Even holds phone in a carbon fibre lookalike case for short journeys.

Just the job
I bought this to replace a windscreen attached holder which following a change of phone was rather awkward to use and vibrated a lot. Despite all the positive reviews I was a little sceptical that it would work very well in my Punto Evo, dimpled dash and charger socket under tension. Well I needn't have worried about it fitting on the dash, it's secure and vibration free. However the charger lead I had been using placed just enough tension,at the right angle, on the socket on the phone to peel it away from the pad after a couple of minutes. But a change of lead to utilise the USB supply socket in the centre console did the trick and the phone has stayed stuck when used ever since. Also tends to stick better since I fitted a Gel Case to the phone, the back is now totally smooth.

Very impressive!
I have bought and tried several different phone holders ith varying success, but this one beats them all hands down!I should say it works best when upright (landscape) rather than sideways (hrizontal), as the phone doesn'tmove in this position,but has fallen off once or twice the other way round, but it stills holds the phone incredibly well without clutter or other clamp parts getting in the way. I would highly recommend this!

Perfect for my mobile
Amazing price for this mobile phone holder. It took me a few seconds to place it in my car and holds my HTC Desire well. I need to wash the sticky plate twice a week to keep its stickyness but as I only need a damp cloth and it just takes seconds I am happy to do this as it has saved me £40 pounds from the other mobile phone holder I considered. When the stickyness starts to go, I place my phone landscape and it has always held it in place until I have finished my journey. Amazing product for the price you pay.

Does what it says on the box
I have been looking for a mobile phone holder that stays stuck on to the car dashboard for years. Usually great claims are made about such items, but sadly I have found them all lacking, until now. Having read about the Dash Genie in a car magazine, where it was rated highly, I decided to buy one. It was relatively inexpensive, compared to some I have bought, and has stayed stuck to the dashboard as promised. It holds my HTC smartphone securely, with little vibration and I can use all the buttons on the side side of the phone as it is held by a sticky pad, rather than being clamped. There is no residue from the sticky pad. It is the best holder I have ever owned and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a secure and convenient in-car phone holder.

It holds my HTC 'phone, upright or horizontal, exactly as and where I want. I can use Torque app, which shows all my car's readings, and it acts like an extra set of car instruements. Brilliant, on merit you should sell thousands.

Not quite as good as I'd hoped
A bit disappointed really. Doesn't stick to upper part of Laguna III textured dash. Ball joint doesn't lock very well and the support bracket is not very rigid. My 5 inch screen sat nav wobbles about making using the touch screen difficult. Having said that it looks neat and once stuck hasn't fallen off. OK for phones but not really suitable for larger sat navs IMO.

Did exactly what it said it would
This was well worth the money spent. It is by far the best phone holder I have purchased. It did stick to the dashboard, unlike other phone holders. The sticky pad does keep the phone stable, but it will not work if the phone is in a case. That, however, is a small price to pay. I would heartily recommend this item.

Pretty good adhesion!
This keeps the phone in the holder amazingly well as long as you position the phone horizontally once it is in the holder.

very useful
I am disabled and can only use my right hand, therefore found it awkward to juggle between phone, driving controls and sat-nav remote at the same time. The dash genie was ideael as I can stick my phone and sat-nav remote to the windscreen within easy reach and concentrate on driving. I found, however, that the dash genie did not stick to the dimpled surface of the dashboard of my Renault Clio but worked well on the glass of the windscreen.

Amazing kit
Having attempted to dislodge both the holder and my phone from their respective mounted positions in my car, (I navigate 14 cattle grids to and from work each day), I have now given up! The holder itself has, I assume, the same adhesive as the red dot intended for the phone, supplemented by an additional locking system. This makes it stick to everything with a flat-ish surface in my car and I have plumped for my sloping, (mottled), dash, so that I can access the charging port on my phone without wires hanging from the windshield. The cradle accommodates my Samsung Galaxy Nexus with ease and, even though I have a silicon sleeve on the phone, anchors it to the cradle with no chance of it coming loose without some serious pressure. The oddest thing is the absence of sticky residue on the back of my phone when taken off the cradle. When not in use, I use the plastic disc it packaged with to cover the red dot – preventing dust accumulation. Full marks, although I wish the boon had been slightly longer. If windscreen mounted, my screen’s angle prevents the large Nexus phone from being used in portrait mode.

I was a little doubtful about this but it fixes well to the dash and holds the phone well too. You just need to be careful if you move the position of your phone whilst in the holder as it can loosen the vacuum and cause the holder to be less tight but otherwise it's really good for then price and I am very happy. Oh and it does lose its stickiness but a quick moisten and alls well again.

Good for the money
Mostly pleased. It sticks well to pimpled dashboards and windows and the phone sticks and stays stuck in the portrait position but drops off after a while in landscape due to no supports underneath when rotated like that. Summary - fine as a phone holder but not really very good for sat nav use really....

Far too happy with this purchase given what it is!
This is really quite nifty. Whoever thought you could be so pleased with a mundane object like a car dock! it sits on my dimpled dashboard, it's small and discreet and it's relatively cheap plus it holds everything in place quite strongly. I'm not a rate everything i'm happy with 5* person but I think this is pretty nifty and deserves a 5 because I really can't see what could be improved! fits a galaxy nexus quite snugly.

Dash genie v2
First class product....Never moved once on first 19 mile trip mounted on the dash. Only problem might be if the phone is shorter than 110mm in length which creates a small gap allowing slight amount of twist on the phone.(having said that it never dropped off) Maybe an adjustable leg on one side might be a good addition on future versions so making the phone more stable when in horizontal display position. 4.5/5

Unimpressive
Only used it three times as it doesn't inspire confidence that it has my device. The sticky pad is too thick causing the phone to sit proud of the holder. As a result the phone moves and wobbles. The suction holder is too short to hold the Nokia Lumia 800 on the windscreen as it the top of the phone touches the glass. The suction efficiency is good on glass but poor on smooth or dimpled plastic and it comes loose and unstuck within a few hours. Found the product disappointing and orchestrated in a sloppy fashion.

Made my wish come true!
I'm not saying I believe in magic and fairies and the like, but if I did somewhere at the bottom of a garden someone came up with something truly magical with this holder. It sticks to my dashboard, it sticks to my phone, it even sticks in the position I put it in (I mean it doesn't give up the ghost and fall sideways when the phone is attached as others I've had in the past). Not only that, but it also holds the phone still, there is no annoying vibration shake I've had in the past so I can actually see what's on the screen, something I find quite handy when using the Sat Nav on my phone! The service from the elves at Mobile Fun was great, fabulous communication throughout, easy to use website and fast delivery at the busiest time of year! I would highly recommend this product to all my friends and family, and I would equally highly recommend Mobile Fun. Thanks to all the elves!

Most stable yet!
Saw one of these in a friends car and bought total 3, 1 for each vehicle. Best thing is that it is able to stick to a normal dashboard rather than trying to find a place on the windscreen. Even dimpled dash or mobile phone case is no problem. I've had many before ranging from £5-£40, this is the most stable by far.

Not all its cracked up to be
After trying it in several different places on the dash of my '06 Megane, it seems to stick OK however it won't keep hold of my SGS2, I dunno if the phones to heavy but even after wetting the sticky red pad it still won't hold for more than 10 mins without it falling off the holder. Not good enough in my opinion

A wonderful Product...
The Dash Genie In Car Holder is a fantastic product at a very reasonable price and does exactly as it says on the packaging. It is a flexible phone holder, that will support almost any mobile phone securely in the car and can be mounted on the dashboard or the window. The semi-sticky pads help with the mounting as well as securing the phone to the mount. It is an excellent product - and well worth the money.

Slippery Stuff
This is a brilliant looking gadget and a great idea for those of us who like to use the superior qualities of a smartphone GPS system over a standalone SatNav. However, I have an HTC Wildfire S, which has its socket precisely where ALL bracket style holders have their bracket - that's the reason I bought the Dash Genie. My HTC is very pretty, sleek and fabulous, with a beautiful white back panel which is sticky blob resistant. On a non-stick rating of 1-10 it turns out to be two steps up the ladder from Teflon. It sticks on alright, but the slightest pressure from (say, in my case) the springy power cable, makes it slowly turn and fall off. A great pity, as so far HTC don't seem to be marketing a compatible cradle and this looked like the only way. Maybe I'll experiment with elastic bands, though it would rather spoil both the gizmo point and the aesthetic. Great concept guys, but (as I think you warn in your blurb) for some smoothie phones it won't work. Three stars just for the concept!

I bought one of these and returned it two days later. The suction pad wouldn't stick to my flat dashboard or window for more than 3 minutes. Even then, the phone (Nokia N8) detached from the holder every 20 seconds, or over the smallest bumps. Not impressed at.

Excellent depending on your device
This is a very clever device holder using a sticky circle in the middle of the holder to firmly hold the device. Don't know what the material is but it holds firm, leaves no residue and is easy to detach the device from. The only problem is the weight of my phone. I have an htc sensation which is a fairly heavy phone inside of a case. Without the case the phone holds fine and other phones inside cases seem to hold fine. Unfortunately the combined weight of my phone and case is a little too much for this holder and it does not stick firmly enough when driving (perhaps it's my driving!). Anyway, to help you decide whether to get this - it does exactly what it says. If you plan to keep your phone in a case consider the weight of it but otherwise - great concept and product.

I having been looking for a suitable holder for my mobile so that I can use it for gps and press the odd button. I does do almost exactly what it says on the box, but the box does not say that it won't stick to a dashboard that isn't perfectly flat! my dash has a mottled surface and this device will not stick to it. Such a shame.

Hold the phone!
I read a lot of reviews regarding the Dash Genie before I went ahead and made a purchase, which was something I did driven a lot by the good price of it. I wonder whether some people have read the instructions for attaching it properly, though it is quite easy to install, as I cannot fault it at all. Mine is locked on to my 02 reg Mondeo dash and has been solidly fixed there since I first positioned it. It carries my HTC Sensation very well in both landscape and portrait positions with the charger plugged into the cigar lighter, and the phone is in a case as well. In a nutshell - It's the badgers nadgers!

Almost there!
It stuck to my dashboard okay at first but in the heat of the day it did fall off. I reset it and it has remained in place ever since. It is small and doesn't get in the way - unlike my old windscreen phone holder. The one downside side is the sticky disc that holds the phone in place. This is also affected by heat and my phone fell off a couple of times as I was driving. If the phone was squeezed very hard onto it it did remain in place but doing that every time is not always convenient. I had to tilt the holder back slightly to keep the phone in the holder.

Having watched the video and looked at the ability of this holder I must say I was gutted at how crap it was...... The description on the back says, fit all dashboard including dimpled ones. This was a present for the wife (not the only one and yes she asked for it!) For the cost it was crap. Yes the phone sticks to the holder, just wish the hold would stick to the dash....... Back to the vent design I think

Very happy with my purchase!
Never bothered with a car mount before this one as I've never found use for it but this was a bargain and I figured it was worth a shot for ease of accessing music on my iPhone 4. Decided the best place for it on my little Yaris was the small window section in front of the main drivers-side window. I stuck it to the glass and clamped it down but then realised I'd put it upside down. Then I worried about it being stuck as other reviewers had mentioned. Un-clipped it and removed easy, then re-attached and was just as stuck on as the first time. iPhone 4 sticks to the red holder pad perfectly well as long as your phone doesn't have greasy fingerprints all over it. My iPhone now sits within easy reach and view just to the outside of the dash and even holds fast when the door is opened and closed. Very happy with my purchase! The only think I need now is a longer audio cable to plug into the aux of the car.

Be careful, it might damage your dashboard !
It worked "OK" in the beginning but after a while suction does not really do the trick (even after cleaning). But the WORST part is that it damaged my dashboard, there is a permanent circle that I just can not remove. Thankfully I will soon scrap the car so it is not major. But if this would be my new/next car and this happened I would be EXTREMELY mad. Just a word of caution, use it to set on the window, NOT on the dashboard. BTW, if you seat it on the window you can not keep the HTC or iPhone upright, the arm is not long enough to extend out from the glass. Thus, this is a warning.... Think before buying, but especially before using it in your car.

not what I was hoping for !
Well you asked me to be honest about this product and I will be .!! Looking at this phone holder and having read both good and bad reviews I thought I would purchase not one but two as most reviews were good but oh dear Im afraid I have to agree with the bad reviews as they said that it failed to stick on the dash and left round marks which I too have found! I have a picasso and my dash is as flat as you can get and when I first put it on I was pleased and it all seemed fine ,but when I got in the car the next morning I put the phone on the holder and the whole lot fell off and chipped my phone , also as other reviews have said it DID leave a round ring which I cant get off .I bought one for my wifes car (vauxhall frontera) and yes you have guessed it same thing all over again, so have to say very disappointed ,but some people have not had these problems (lucky them). OK not one to be beaten or waste £35.00 thought how can I cure this and am pleased to say I have done just that by getting a piece of clear perspexs cutting it slightly bigger then bought myself some HEAVY DUTY double sided tape and cut it to size and stick it on the perspex first then take backing off carefully and put it on the dash in the place that you wont the phoneto be !Problem solved

Great promise - poor performance
I purchased 2 Dash Genies a few weeks ago - 1 for me and 1 for my husband. Mine fell off after sticking on very well for a few days, leaving an unremovable mark on the dashboard of my brand new car. I tried it on the windscreen but it fell off leaving a sticky residue on the glass. My husband's dash genie fell off a few days later. Looked great on the advert, didn't deliver on the promise.

Not good!!! And definitely not happy!!
What can I say about this product. Nothing positive that's for sure! When it arrived it looked like a decent piece of kit but as soon as I got it out of the pack it was obvious it wasn't going to work. The unique sticky pad they mention will NOT hold an I phone 4.. It will NOT stick to any dashboard it has to be smooth and flat not textured at all. And if you have to stick or in your windscreen, which kind of goes against the whole dash part, then it won't hold the I phone 4 and it won't work without your phone hitting the windscreen. In a shirt sentence absolutely useless and a waste of time.. Don't bother!!

Innovative solution to multi-use cradle problem
This cradle was recommended to me and I am not disappointed. It is used for all our phones/Ipods and sticks to the slightly curved and textured dash just fine. Looking at some of the poorer reviews, I'm not sure if there's a quality issue that explains some of the problems. Also, I clean my dash with a damp cloth and detergent - I don't use Dashboard Shine or other such polishes.

Mixed. Can be great in the right place, but it's p
I got this for my iPhone 4 to go in my Ford Focus Mk 1. Clearly drilled is the best option, but I don't fancy lowering the resale value of my car - and wanted something neater than a window-suckered mount. First, this NEEDS a flat surface. The first piece of dash planned, which has a very slight curve it would not stay stuck to. Also, a complete design flaw is that you can NOT use this with an iPhone 4 on a windscreen, as the mount itself is simply too short and the iPhone ends up meeting the windscreen at the top first. I moved it the centre-left/rear of my dash, which is a little far away but non-obstructive and it sticks great - hasn't moved in two weeks. I certainly wouldn't trust this in landscape mode, no way, but for a portrait phone-holder mounted at the top of my dash, it does a great job.

Product would not stick to dash, although advertised that it would, I now have it on the windscreen but thats not where I wanted it. I have the offer to have it replaced on the basis that it is faulty but looking at the design I do not think so. No way will it stick to any dash surface and the process of sending it back is tedious to say the least. it is a good looking funky unit so I will make do.

only for lightweight phones
Having purchased a dash genie a while ago it sat on my dash with my nokia phone quite well except rhe adhesive pad began to disintegrate. I returned it under warranty and it was rplaced with a newer version. I have now moved on to a blackberry in the last few days and the unit does not support the phone and the suction pad is not enough to take the weight. I have passed the unit on to my daughter for her to put her iphone on in her car but she is telling me that it does not take the size and weight. Disappointed would be the word as it promised so much.

Well this thing does seem to be quite happy to stick to my windscreen and some bits of the dashboard (but not anywhere with any sort of curve to it, even gentle ones), however it just won't stick to the back of my iPhone 4. Tried cleaning the phone and the sticky pad with no change in the holders ability to do it's job so ended up securing the phone in place with an elastic band. So it kind of works but is a bit of a pain to use with the elastic band. Also if you stick this to your dash you'll probably find that it isn't possible to get the iPhone charger into the phone as the whole thing sits too low down. Generally could try harder.

Not for Me I'm afaraid.
Got the email, saw the video & thought just the job. Even though it said "dimples on dashboard, no problem", the Genie wouldn't stick, same on the windscreen it fell off after 10 minutes. I was going to return it but I've found a use for it in the house. Maybe it's me or my cars dash & windscreen, but it's been a disappointing purchase.

A must have
This is a great little gadget. My Backberry torch fits nicely on to the holder and stays there. I can't think of any phone that would not stick to it and stay there. The sucket pad does stick to any surface as stated. I could not work out how it would fit to the window whilst getting the correct angle so you could still see the phone. The slope of the window seemed to step. I drive a Tiguan. It is the best car phone holder I have had. I know if I get a new phone I can still use the same holder.

Still looking for the perfect phone holder!!!
Not as good as i expect but it does work! Ive had it for a week and the sticky patch does work even with my silicon case on the iphone 4, the thing thats letting it down at the moment is the cradel itsself, when you find the perfect position for it upright and you go to turn it side ways on the cradel it puts it at an angle which isnt user freindly.... not good for those of us using sat-nav apps Other than that poss one of the best ive found thus far!

I found that my Blackberry tended to drop off when the car was hot inside probably due to its weight. Some phones just do not stick to the pad. Clever idea for the right phone.

Very neat but not so good for a Mini!
The Dash Genie holds my phone (T- -Mobile MDA Compact V) very securely. It's well made and compact. The only problem is that it won't stick to the dashboard on my Mini! I've had to stick it to the big speedo in the middle. There's a digital speedo behind the steering wheel anyway, the big one is just for show to look like a proper mini!

I had my doubts about the dash Genie V2, but as it had so many positive reviews I decided to give it a try. It stuck to the textured vinyl dash in my Isuzu pickup with no trouble at all (everything else I have attached has fallen off straight away...). after three weeks it is still firmly attached and doing "just what it said on the tin"!

Just ordered a second one of these little gems. as long as you keep both surfaces clean and free from dust by wiping with a wet cloth and water they continue to hold any mobile phone , music player etc that you stick to them. No marks left on the phone either. will stick anywhere on the dash you put them. One little tip, in very hot weather check the Genie is well on the dash stuck before attaching your phone.

Works when it wants to
This holder only works when the phone's screen is off and when the phone isn't warm (useless for navigation and even charging) and when it is, it just falls off. My phones been damaged by the amount of times it has dropped off my dash. I would not recommend this product to anyone who has quite a chunky phone like mine (HTC Desire with an Extended battery on the back).

It sticks to the dach or anthing you want and makes it perfect for messages coming through that you can't hear because of the radio etc as the display is always visable. Wash this item under the tap and it's like new again. Great for watching TV on your smartphone too when stuck in traffic. A must buy.

So near yet so far!
Fits to a dimpled dashboard great and my phone (HTC TouchPro2) stuck to the holder fine. The problems begin if the journey gets a bit bumpy or you turn the car i.e. going around roundabouts when the phone fell off into the footwell. May just be a problem with my phone but if the holder itself had better grip then this would be a perfect accessory.

Excellent Kit!
This is a great bit of kit. We have a few different phones in our house, so a unique holder for each one in the family car isn't really possible. This Dash Genie V2 is great, any phone, no problem. Had for a few weeks now and still it grips well. Can't believe how well it grips the rough surface of our Galaxy dash board. This phone holder is all you'll ever need imho.

Idea for latest Astra dash
Perfect holder for new shape Astra dash which has virtually no flat areas! I have a Bluetooth mobile kit but wanted to see the display when in use and this product has proved perfect for that task. Blackberry sits perfectly in the holder and has not moved or come out during many journeys and hundreds of miles. Only minor issue with Blackberry is the flimsy light phone back that will come off and stay on the holder if you pull it away sharply - this is no fault of the holder and purely a Blackberry 'feature'. Overall very satisfied for the price.

Damaged Dash
As another user reported, it was working well for a few weeks. It then lost its grip and fell of dash revealing a circle indentation on my 1 month old Audi TT Dash board. What is essentially a £15 phone holder will now cost me £1800 to replace the dash. Not a happy camper.

So far so good
I've only had this item a week or so, but am very impressed so far. I have used it in 3 different cars, on both smooth and lightly dimpled surfaces and it has stayed attached on both. My phone has a case on which gives it a smooth, flat rear surface, and this has never become detached from the holder, but is still easy to remove when you need to. I have found the easiest way is to use a "peeling" action, which seems to release the phone with very little effort. So far, I have not had to clean either sticky surface, so I can't comment on how easy or effective this is. Overall - very pleased, very impressed and would thoroughly recommend.

My htc wildfire falls off alot, although angling it back a bit helps alot. Think the red dot idea should be replaced with a bigger dot, or more conventional cradle. However the sucker part is brilliant on windscreen or dash. Super grippy! just improve the red dot. May have to use a rubber band around my phone!.

Simple and effective, but could have been better
So the curved back of my desire HD doesn't lend itself to good contact with the sticky pad on this stand but none the less it holds it sufficiently. However it doesn't take much to pull the phone free from the stand so I can't help feel that it could and probably will come loose at some point. If the pad were little larger it would be a different story so why don't the manufacturers play it safe and implement this simple fix? Anyway it's been all good sor far and it's simple design is just what I was looking for.

Almost - but not quite!
Sorry to say, but much as I wanted this little gadget to be a raging success and deliver all that was promised, I'm afraid that it is only partially successful for me. In the last month, my mobile phone has fallen from the holder at least five times, usually following a bump in the road, or pothole. It is neat a small, but I have now learned to lie my phone almost on its back to try to ensure its stability, and that is not what I wanted. I wanted something slim and to be virtually perpendicular when mounted, but if I do that, my phone falls out. Pity.

grippy and sticky. nice.
I have found Dash Genie to be really very good. It has never once let go of my iphone 4, which I attach in the portrait position - the sticky pad is quite amazing, it gives the impression of not having a great grip of the phone, but never lets go, and takes little effort to pluck the phone off the holder. I have the Dash Genie attached to my dash rather than windscreen and it works very well. It seems well attached and vVery little vibration is transmitted to the phone so I can see the sat nav screen quite easily. It does an excellent job for a great price. With this plus the free Skobbler sat nav app, and a cheap fag-lighter charger, I have a great value sat nav for not much cash.

Works Perfectly
I was a bit uncertain about buying this after seeing some reviews saying it's unreliable but it's worked perfectly for me. I have a nexus one and as long as you push it onto the pad firmly, it's held securely. I've been using it now for 3 weeks and it hasn't failed yet. It sticks very securely to my dash which is textured, you have to pick a spot that isn't too curved though.

Does What It Claims
Used with a Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro when using as a GPS - phone appears a bit small for the stand but it is ok. Used only 3 times, but once on a very, very bumpy fen track - phone dislodged but after leaning the stand back a little more it then remained in situ. Fixes well on bumpy surface of dash so that it takes minor eye time from the road. Quite Impressive really. 4 stars because it is not quite right for the small phone.

Not quite the holy grail
I am using this with my Samsung Omnia 7 smart phone. I love how I can attach it to my dashboard or window but I have experienced my phone falling off when used in landscape orientation. I also have to remove the silicone case from my phone as it won't stick otherwise (I did know this before purchasing). The little foot at the bottom of the stand blocks the Omnia's microphone but I could still have a conversation if I spoke up! I also dislike the 80s red dot and the way it resembles the Star Trek emblem. I would prefer it to be rectangular with a wider or more spread out sticky area. If I try to use the phone while connected, tapping the top of the screen can knock it loose.

I did not fully believe the reviews of this product when I read them, it sounded too good to be true. Now that I have one installed in my car and have been using it for a few weeks I must agree with all of the positive comments it has received. It holds both my mobiles securely (not at the same time) and is an excellent design.I think the use of the 'sticky smart material' on both the 'sucker' and for holding the phone is very innovative.

Totally useless!
If you own an iPhone 4, and drive for longer than 5 minutes at speeds over and above those your grandmother would do, then don't bother! :) In a 1 hour journey, the iPhone fell off half a dozen times, no matter how hard I pushed it on. A combination of the slippy glass on the phone and a few roundabouts taken at average speed was too much for the sticky red dot to handle.

Arrived promtly as usual from MF. However, it will not stick on the textured slopping surface of my g/fs car. Have cleaned the surface properly and it will not hold in place for more than a few seconds. The sticky bit that holds the phone is good. Phone sticks to it solidly and does not leave any residue on the back of the phone. Overall I am sure a great product for those with a nice flat, smooth, horizontal surface to attach to.

Not that great
After reading numerous reviews I was expecting something pretty special. The mounting system on V2 is pretty good but the "Sticky" pad which you attach your phone to leaves alot to be desired. I've pushed the clean back of the phone onto the clean sticky pad with such pressure I was worried about cracking the phone, When I let go it appeared to stick but with a very light movement the phone fell off. This happened with a HTC Desire, Sony Erricson K80I, HTC Magic and Nokia N95. Mount any of these sidways and even under slight braking it falls off. Not impressed, Maybe I've got a duff one?

A rare day to find something that actually lives up to its blurb...I have gone through a couple of windscreen type holders with total disappointment. I was about to give up when came accross this - looked like it may solve the problem and the reviews were good...I recieved the item and all looked good - the soft, sticky suction cup at the base gripped my dashboard (which is textured) so hard I cannot pull it off without risking damage! So far so good...The phone is held in place by a sticky pad and I was dubious that this would hold on over the bumpy roads we have here, no need to worry though - the phone is held firmly in place never looking like it will come loose - I have a spiral charger connected which pulls slightly but this is easily resisted. I have been using for a couple of weeks now and all is still perfect - I also found that I could position the phone in a more comfortable place than with a windscreen type mount. All in all it does what it is intended to do, a better option than the windscreen units (for my preference anyway) and is built well. Worth the money.

WelNot ideal for heavier smart phones
Well it did not do what the video promised. Using a Galaxy s and a HTC Wildfire. Both phones are a bit to heavy to stay attached. The htc fell off when used by my wife and the Galaxy when I tested the sticky pad over a soft chair kept falling off too. In short to risky to risk hundreds of pounds worth of phone and cracked screens. Shame as the concept its good.

Actually AMAZING !
I've tried at least 6 different mobile phone cradles for my Toshiba TG01, without any of them being 100% suitable. The problem being is that the TG01 is a BIG phone but the speaker is in the rear at the bottom, so when in a conventional cradle mount the speaker is blocked virtually muting the speaker! After watching the video for the Dash Genie In Car Holder v2 I purchased one. It is amazing. Not only does it install easy and hold the phone securely, it does not block the speaker either in vertical or horizontal mode. Worth twice the price and that's from a skinfint.

Flawed phone mount - phone fell off
Dash Genie In Car Holder v2 Seemed like a great idea. Sticks to the windscreen perfectly (I think). But I stuck my Nokia 5800 to the pad and very soon after that, as I was driving, the phone fell off. It seemed firm enough when I attached it. Presumably a sharp bump has the same effect as pulling sharply on the phone in order to remove it deliberately. Luckily phone was undamaged. I'm disinclined to try it again! Pity there is not a holder with similar windscreen sucker and a conventional phone mount.

Excellent bit of kit
I have tried various types of phone holder over the years, and they have all been fiddly to attach, and invariably always fall onto the floor when the road gets bumpy. Easy to stick to the dash ( in my case ), the phone sticks like glue to the holder and has never let down. An excellent bit of kit, especially the price!

Absolutely brilliant
I was sceptical about this product but it came as a freebie when I ordered the desk Genie. What can I say. It is fantastic. The best car phone holder I have ever tried. Sticks very well to the dashboard but is easily repositioned. My only critism, which could also be considered a positive comment in a way is that the phone sticks to it so well, it is hard to remove and you end up having to re-adjust the holder each time. It concerns me that this could weaken it after a while. It is not made of the most robust plastic I've come across.

Not quite as good as it seemed
Don't get me wrong it is a good product, but don't expect this holder to keep your phone secure for a long journey. If you want your phone to stay on, then you need to angle the holder at about 45 degrees so that it doent fall off.

Just what I needed
Needed a phone holder that did not damage the dash or vent. The Genie sticks to the "flat" textured dash and my phone sticks like "s--t" to the Genie. Good product; completely satisfied.

Dash Genie
Having seen the video on your website I was very impressed. This is a neat alternative to traditional phone holders and it sticks to my dash like a limpet. I have a gripe however: it will not hold my Desire HD in landscape mode at all, which is a shame as the nav on this phone is not bad. It's not the end of the world, as the nav is still useable in portrait, though it was nearly the end of my phone, as it fell off about 5 times before I finally gave up. This is definitely a good alternative to bulkier and messier phone holders, though I have found myself reverting to one of these more than I have been using the genie.

I am reasonably pleased with this product. I have noticed that when I use it to hold my mobile phone, when using it as a sat nav, it sometimes comes adrift. However, It is very cold at present and this may be what is affecting the 'stickyness' of the pad. It does appear to stick to the Dashboard well.

Over the years like so many other people I have purchased a similar item only to find that they either leave a sticky mess or holes in the dash board, this product is a "Genie" no mess fits to the dash in seconds and holds your phone secuerly.

I had to buy another!
I bought my first Dash Genie for use in my lorry as I wanted my phone within easy reach (i.e. on the dash, not the windscreen). Have you ever seen a lorry bouncing along our impeccable roads? The Genie stays on (a textured dash). The phone stays on. Perfect! Several months later I bought a VW Touran - the windscreen was even more of a stretch. Another Genie on order. Handles the weight of a Garmin 1310 - it's never fallen off. All it needs is an occasional wipe with a damp cloth to restore the stickiness of the pad.

Purchased for use with my Samsung Galaxy S phone the product easily attached to my dashboard (Nissan Note)and stays solid over any rough road, the gel on the pad adheres very well to the phone and I swivel the position when using the Sat Nav option on the phone would recommend this product.

Well I've tried all sorts of phone holders for the car and I have to say that this is the best yet. I have a peugeot 307 and so windscreen mounts are not a lot of good because the screen is so far away. I have a pimply dashboard and this just sticks to it no problem. Simple easy to use, easy to move. What coulod be simpler?

Phone holder holds phones!
The Dash Genie In Car Holder (v2) does just what it name suggests. It holds a phone on your dash! I don't know how the non-sticky red gripping part works, but it holds the phone perfectly, leaves no marks and yet survives my off-road driving without the phone falling off. The suction cup to the dash works better still too. I could put the phone where I wanted it, safely. Excellent price, a product that is simple and works. Just what I'd expect from Mobile Fun.

Dash Genie In Car Holder v2.
Hi All. I purchased this to replace a previous sticky holder which I cannot name. This one sticks using a sticky pad and suction cup on the main base which does hold well ,but it has to be on a 100% flat surface otherwise the suction fails quickly. The pad that holds your device is not as large compared to the base, I found this not as good at holding as the base ,as a consequence I have to use an elastic band around my device to be safe. I would thick the device pad needs to be larger in diameter. For these reasons 3 stars is all I can give. But hey this is just my opinion.

Great little device, was a little sceptical at first but having read other reviews decided to give it a try. Using it daily in my works van with the new Htc Mozart windows phone no issue at all as yet, Does the job well and doesn't leave a residue on the phone. Can definately recommend.

Disappointing
It fell of the dashboard and my phone landed under my foot. Had to stop the car to retrieve the phone from beneath the brake pedal. Luckily my new Nokia N8 was undamaged. No thanks to this device which I have not dared to use since.

Dash Genie In Car Holder
What a nifty little gadget. I was looking for something to put my mobile phone onto whilst driving since getting a clip and talk bluetooth kit. My phone normally sits near the cigarette lighter, or in my handbag and when the phone rings, its annoying that I can't see the screen to see who is calling, but this sits firmly wherever you want to put it - right in front on the dashboard. If you can't find a flat surface on the dashboard, this is manoeuvrable enough to put directly onto the windscreen. All it needs is a flat surface. The special material works brilliant sticking to the back of the phone. It would also be great for a hand held sat nav.

This is simply the most versatile phone holder I've ever used. The sticky material is easily refurbished by rinsing under the tap. Brilliant.

They said it would work !?
On taking the Dash Genie In Car Holder v2 out of the box other than looking like a Startrek logo it is fairly unimpressive. However it is one of the very few in car phone holders that I have had that actually works - no fuss no drama - press the phone onto it and it stays there. Last time I doubt the testers at MobileFun then.

'Dash Genie', WOW!
Just what I've always wanted, it's fantastic! It's looks neat and it does the job, keeps my new Apple iphone4 in place even with my clear cover on. Doesn't budge even over speed bumps and rough terrain, & do I do some speed bumps through the night in my taxi. So go and buy one quick, you'll not be dissapointed I can assure you. 'TAXI any one'! :-)

Not Much Stick
Having read previous reviews I thought that the 'Genie' would be the holder for my Wildfire when being used as a Satnav, but this was not the case. Yes, it will stick but only after several attempts but not in landscape, this drops off straight away. I cleaned the pad, the phone, but it doesn't seem to make any differance. Looks good, shame it don't work. Now looking for a replacement before the phone breaks bouncing off the car floor.
