Mountek nGroove Universal CD Slot Mount for Cell Phones and GPS Devices
Introducing the MT5000-D, Mountek’s fourth revision of its popular nGroove CD/DVD Slot Mount, featuring a rubber dipped nGroove blade for better grip. With no tools necessary for installation, the MT5000-D comes pre-assembled and mounts easily, so you can take it anywhere you go.
Reclaim Dash Space
Through Mountek’s nGroove technology, you can firmly mount the MT5000-D in numerous areas around your dash that are traditionally wasted space – even the CD or DVD player slot. It does not require any adhesives or holes, so you can easily mount and unmount your device(s) without damaging your vehicle.
Fits Larger Devices
The device rest is detachable for holding larger devices, including Garmin, Magellan, TomTom*, or other GPS receivers. The cradle has a maximum spread of 4.375″, but a device with a side greater than that length can still be mounted horizontally, as long as its shortest side is no wider than 4.375″. For example, a satellite radio receiver that is 6″ long and 4″ wide will easily fit sideways in the cradle.
* Does not fit TomTom GPS units with a protruding rear speaker
Allows mounting in virtually any direction – vertically, horizontally, or whatever works best for you. Additionally, you have the ability to rotate your device 360 degrees clockwise or counter-clockwise, while it is still docked. Easily switch your cell phone to landscape or portrait mode without taking your eyes off the road.
Side Tilt and Quick Device Release
The device cradle rests on a ball hinge, so you can easily adjust the viewing angle: up, down, diagonal, or side-to-side. Plus, you can quickly and easily load and release your devices with one hand.
Compatible with the most common smartphones, including: iPhone 4 & 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 III, Samsung Galaxy Note 1 & 2, HTC DNA, HTC ONE, HTC EVO, Motorola Droid Razr Maxx, Google Nexus 4, Nokia Lumia 920, and more.
My charge port is located on the side of my phone. Will this allow for me to charge it at the same time?
Absolutely. Simply detach the support bar located at the bottom of the cradle, and you can easily mount your phone with the charge port exposed.
Will the blade activate the CD’s auto loader?
Although all CD players are made differently, the nGroove blade generally does not reach far enough to activate a CD/DVD player’s auto loading function.
If my CD player has a rubber/cloth dust guard, will the mount damage it?
The max depth the nGroove blade can reach is 16 mm or .63 inches. If the depth of your dust guard is shorter than this, the nGroove blade might cause it to appear warped or wrinkled.
I have an extended battery which requires a larger case. Will it fit?
The MT5000-D was not designed for devices thicker than .70 inches, but you still may be able to mount your phone without its case.
WARNINGS: Expand the nGroove blade by SLOWLY turning the tightening wheel. Stop once the MT5000-D holds securely. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN. You must completely loosen the nGroove blade’s tightening wheel BEFORE uninstalling the mount. Failure to comply may cause permanent damage to your vehicle.
Mountek was founded in 2004, on the idea that there is a better way to mount hand-held devices in the car. Windshield mounts obstruct the view of the road and eventually lose suction. Vent clip mounts hardly fit properly and restrict air circulation in the car. Dashboard mounts slip and slide or require permanent adhesives on the dash. The list of inadequate mounting solutions is extensive. But the inventor behind Mountek noticed an ideal mounting location that exists in most new and used cars on the market today: The CD/DVD slot.
In this digital age CDs are rarely used to play music, yet automobile manufacturers continue to provide CD players in their stock radios. More importantly the car stereo is typically located within the driver’s reach. Mountek’s MT5000-D Universal nGroove CD/DVD Slot Mount now offers a solution to place your cell phone or GPS device at the most sensible location in the car.
