Flexpod products - A explanation of Bracket Types and attachments.
Style of mount: Fixie vs. Pro Series
Our Fixie mount is an all-in-one style bracket. It attaches to the back of the tachometer, and reaches up to mount your phone at the optimal 2 o’clock position in relation to your tachometer. The Fixie is only available for second generation MINIs, and not recommended for the Countryman.
Our Pro Series Mount is a two-piece mounting system that allows you more flexibility. Along with the ability to move the location of your phone easily you'll get our pieces for hiding the wiring to your device. We have a Pro Series Mount for every MINI.
Cradle: Form Fitting iPhone Specific vs. The Universal Scissor XL
This cradle fits the exact shape of the phone, it easily snaps into place and holds your phone securely. Since the cradle is designed to fit the phone exactly it cannot be used if your iPhone is already in a case. If you commonly use a case on your Phone we’d recommend the Scissor XL that comes with our other Smartphone mounts.
All of our other Smartphone mounts use our universal Scissor XL cradle. The Spring Loaded Scissor XL is strong enough that your phone won’t fall while you’re driving, but still allows you to remove your phone quickly and easily.
