Does GripGo Really Work?

One of the major distractions while driving is the urge to use mobile phones. A lot of road-related accidents these days have been caused by the inappropriate behavior of making calls or sending text messages when at the wheel. As strict laws have been implemented against talking on a cell phone while driving, the product GripGo offers to avoid incidents on the road by keeping motorists focused on the road instead of worrying where they placed their mobile phone. GripGo is a hands free car mount that allows mobile phones to be within reach at all times. It can be installed within seconds and claims to hold any type of mobile phone firmly in place and allows it to be pulled off the mount in an instant. GripGo is said to use re-grippable technology that allows repeated use without leaving any sticky residue.

No - A piece of junk

I bought two of them one for each of my cars.
The first one worked well for a week then wouldn’t hold the phone for more than minutes and kept dropping the phone.
The other one didn’t work at all.
Now I am left with the challenge of how to safely detach the base from the wind shield

The product worked well as far as holding the phone or GPS but it would not stay mounted.

No - Loses the stickiness.

At first it was like my phone was super glued to it but after you use it, it gets less and less sticky. When you rinse it like they say, it gets worse. If you go over a bump it falls off. My phone’s charger port got pulled out because of it dropping all the time, ended up needing a new phone.

No - It's Rubbish

Sunction pad barely gives me half a day of grip.
My phone falls off on the floor while driving.
It’s a nuisance to keep pad clean, I’m having to clean it several times a day – smallet bit of dust stuffs it up. I bought 2 and both have been returned. No good in Australian conditions at all.

Yes - Not Bad

It holds my phone well and comes off easy enough. The little knob to tighten could be bigger so its easier to tighten. It usually comes loose and drops my phone to a lower position and can’t fix while driving because you need 2 hands to adjust it. I like the fact that it can hold any phone.

No - Won't Stay Mounted
2 stars2 stars2 stars2 stars2 stars

The green sticky grip portion of the product works as advertised. The arm and suction cup suck though. The arm stays in place a couple of minutes but then falls off the disc. I don’t know if it’s because the arm is too heavy or the suction cup is poorly designed. If they fix the problem with the arm not staying mounted then this would be an awesome product. In fact, probably the best automobile mounting accessory available. But because it doesn’t, it makes the product useless.

Yes - Phones Really Stick Securely to the Pad of this Holder
4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars4 stars

GripGo is a pretty good car mount holder for your cell phone. The first question in most people’s mind is whether phones really stick securely to GripGo as shown in the TV commercial. I tried two different phones, an iPhone and a Motorola RAZR flip phone, and both stay on the sticky surface securely as I drive around and interact with them. If anything, the phones stuck *too* securely making it kind of tough to remove them. The manual recommends using two hands when removing a phone and that is good advice because I found it difficult to take off a phone using only one hand. I have had this product for only a few day so I can’t vouch for how long the stickiness of the gel pad will last.

You can either mount the Grip Go unit to your windshield using a suction cup or to your dashboard using a disc with adhesive glue. I wanted to attach it to my dashboard but the dash on my car (a Nissan Versa) has only curved surfaces and the disc can only be secured to a flat surface, so I had to mount it on my windshield.

The arm and bracket head can be easily positioned and then secured into place by tightening the adjustment knob.

If you are looking for a hands-free option for using your phone inside your car, Grip Go is definitely worth a try.

I’ve tried a number of mounts for my various phones over the years and GripGo is hands down the best yet. Since it will work with any phone, probably the last one I’ll have to buy. Awesome product!
