Driving while being helped by our iPhone is becoming increasingly common thanks to navigation applications. There are many accessories that we can find in the market to be able to hold or charge the iPhone while we are driving. In this article we try to collect the best ones we can find.
Without a doubt, one of the essential accessories in any car is an iPhone holder. The main use that we are going to give it is to consult the GPS while we are driving without having to manipulate the device and also without taking our eyes off the road.

It is a universal support for a wide range of iPhone and other mobile devices.
