This product works great for cell phones, but the iPod is too large. Still, if you did want it, just get the regular (non iPod and white) version for about half the price.

I have a friend who swears by this for his cell phone or blackberry or sunglasses. But the iPod is too heavy and big, and I just know it would go flying off if you had to brake suddenly.

I disagree. This sticky pad is awesome. It is the key to my car install. I would have paid twice the price!!!

I'll agree with YoungClay, though he uses his iGrip differently than I do. Mine travels on top of my Toyota Tacoma's relatively flat dash. A PodPod (or other cupholder mount) is out of the question, as the truck only has two cupholders, which are in use all the time on trips.

I recently travelled 1200 miles round trip, mostly on freeways and good 2 lane roads, and the iPod never moved during the trip except when I put it away during pitstops. We also put my wife's sunglasses on the iGrip during the trip (there's room), and they didn't move either.

Joshdude is right--the same pad is available in colors other than white at RadioShacks and other outlets for half the price.

I just got one a couple of weeks ago. I have a 40Gigger with an iTrip. I took it for a test spin, taking corners at twice what i would usually take them at.

iGrip worked beautifully.

Never had any problems with my iGrip. In my Mazda RX-7, I've taken turns without seeing my iPod go flying around. Stood right in place.

I personally like it better than the PodPod and similar accessories. They isn't as easy and just taking it out of my iPod case, and putting my iTrip in, and placing it on the iGrip.

I am very happy with my iGrip. Its a good solution in my Envoy since I don't have very much storage between the seats and I didn't want to lose a cup holder. I also use it in my Accord and it works very well there as well.

It does re-gain its tacky quality when you wash it in soapy water. I just washed it when I was doing some dishes one night and it was good as new when it dried....

I have yet to have my iPod slip while its on the iGrip.

YoungClay: Nice use of the iGrip!

You can buy a roll of rubber kitchen drawer liner in any color for $2 and cut it to whatever shape you want. This will work for many applications that aren't at very severe angles.

If I lived on a house boat I would possibly have every surface of the boat have this type of material. Just imagine how annoying it must be to have to dive for potted plants every time some goofy kids are diving off the side of you neighbors boat!

Funny--I was trying to make something like that--but with a rough fabric (maybe Velcro) backing, to set the iPod on the passenger seat next to me.

I came up with something REALLY ugly but it works...

YoungClay - I'm impressed, that thing holds the iPod nearly vertically!

Must be stickier than I'd have thought.

Wow, lots of positive reviews for this product even though its only got a C-. Makes me want to go get one.

I love mine. I drive a Neon and the dashboard is really kind of rounded - nothing would sit on the dashboard flat anyway. I got mine before reading the reviews here and I have a 40GB usually in a Speck hard case, never once has it moved. I kind of "squoosh" my ipod on there to be sure it is secure, but it stays perfectly still regardless of braking, sharp turns, etc. I can reach the buttons easily to move to the next song, etc. I actually got a second one to hold my cell phone and my chapstick smile

BTW, my cup holders are out of the question because they are almost on the floor in my car. Having the pod on the dash with the iGrip is the best decision for me.

I was skeptical too, but this thing really does work great. My iPod (4g 40 gig) doesn't move at all even at high speeds on tight turns with a charging cable connected. I've got an Acura Integra. For this price, or even triple this price, it's great. I mean, I imagine that a ProClip system would be better, but that would run 13x more money plus shipping. Wow. I'd rather have this. It works great and is cheap.

I just got my iGrip a week ago. I live in Michigan, and if anyone knows Michigan they know the roads here are AWFUL. Despite my erratic driving and the roads, my iPod photo didn't budge... at all. Currently, I have it in a Sumo nylon flap case, and I've driven with it in the case and out. Because of the belt clip on the back, it doesn't lay flat on the iGrip, yet stills stay put. Also, my dashboard is curved and it still functions properly.

This product deserves way more than a C-. It might not be as high-end and chic as some of the other car mounts, but form follows function!
