DIY instructions to build own car mount

GPS is among the most popular apps available on the iPhone. If you use the GPS apps on iPhone, you might have realized the problem with mounting the iPhone on your car.

With unique car docks available for different GPS devices, choosing the right dock can not only be difficult but also expensive. Folks at Instructables have an interesting DIY post on how you can make your own adjustable car mount without spending too much. 

To make this, you will only need some PVC piping, heavy duty plastic coated wire, adhesive foam, scissors and pliers. The process involves finding a suitable nook in your car's dashboard near the steering wheel where a PVT Tee is fit as the anchor. A PVC pipe is fit into this Tee. A cradle is then prepared on the other end of the PVC pipe with the help of the heavy duty plastic coated wire which will hold your iPhone in place.
