Phone holder easily rotates and gives access to radio buttons

Gary Smith designed the CD Slot holder when the idea was sparked when his sat nav was stolen from the dash board of his car and he was looking for a less visible place to put it. Gary Smith spent about two years on developing his invention, which is made in the UK. Launched in 2012 the initial sticky pad version CD slot mount has been updated by the smarter  2014 version which gives better access to radio buttons and passenger by the rotating ball mount.
