Oraimo Car Vent Mount lets you navigate hands-free

If you need to use map navigation on your phone while driving, getting a car mount is a good idea for keeping things hands-free during your ride. I tried out the Oraimo car vent mount.

It is a simple contraption made of plastic and there is nothing to setup to get it ready. There are frontal clamps to hold your phone in place, and there is a rear clip with which you attach the Oraimo car vent mount to your car’s dash vent.

To use it, just clip it to an air vent on your car dashboard and put in your phone. I tried it out on two different car models and it performed same way in both.

Issues Using Oraimo Car Vent Mount

Did the car vent mount give any issues? Yes; it did. Due to the position of the power button of my current phone, contact is often made between one clamp and the power button. The result is that the display goes off. Of course, that is a problem, as I need the display to be active while using maps.

Also, I had a bit of a struggle fitting the charging point of the USB-C cable into the phone when held in place by the car mount. It could have to do with the size of the cable around the charging point. Perhaps some other cables will fit better.

Other than those two issues, the Oraimo car vent mount serves its purpose well.

It costs about NGN 3,500 in the market.

      I believe Mister Mo is accepting gifts. You can send a latest Hyundai (at least) to him. I’ll help receive it
