Two Phone Mount Choices in the Box
Designed just for your Mini
Magnets Work Surprisingly Well
We've long been skeptical of magnetic phone mounts, but it turns out they are pretty awesome. Many of the phones we tested were sufficiently magnetic on their own to just attach right to the mount. If not, we include two sizes of metal plates with adhesive backing. You could stick one to your phone, but if you use a case, it just goes between the case and the phone and works beautifully. While this magnetic mount is quick and easy to use, if you do not want to deal with the plates and your phone does not attach without them, the XXL Clip is in the box for you too.
Tight Corners and Large Phones are not Problem
The strong spring of the inclued clamshell holder can be more secure than the magnet mount if you are really putting it through it's paces. This is ideal for larger/heavier devices or bumpy driving conditions. The spring clip design means it’s still easy to use, simply pinch the back to open the holder. It opens up to 4 inches wide, so as long as your device is narrower than that, it will fit just fine. When removing your phone from the holder you should avoid letting the strong spring snap shut. Over time, this can cause the holder to break. If your holder breaks we will replace it, but this can be easily avoided.

Great product and great employees. I am very very satisfied with cravenspeed. I bought a Gemini Phone mount for a gen 1 Mini Cooper for a customers car and it fit like a glove and was very easy to install. I followed up with my customer and she is loving it. I installed it for her to mount her Garmin Nuvi to.
The Perfect MINI Mount and Customer Service is the Best!
Posted by Benjamin Moon on 22nd Jul 2017
After reading the reviews, I was a little hesitant in purchasing the mount because of the price. I overlooked the price though and now really glad I made this purchase. I use the clamp and it holds my iPhone 6s Plus perfectly in the vertical (portrait) position and very stable while driving. I also have a case on my iPhone and the clamp still holds securely. The installation was very straight forward and easy and took about 20 minutes (I went slow just to be careful). The mount feels solid and well made and I'm sure will last a long time. It also looks like a factory option from MINI, which is cool.
Also, just want to make a big compliment to CravenSpeed customer service. About a month after ordering the mount, my clamp lost its tension and wouldn't securely close and hold my iPhone. I emailed CravenSpeed on a Friday morning. I received an email from Robert shortly after and he promptly shipped out a replacement clamp the same day in the afternoon for no charge and to top if off, I received the replacement clamp the following Monday. Robert and CravenSpeed rock!! They definitely care about their customers and stand by their products.
Good Mount, but has 1 issue
Posted by Daniel Main on 6th Jun 2017
It is a good mount but there is one issue that a few design changes would fix, Temperature variations, I have found that the mount when cool tends to let the arm loosen up, while when hot the clamp swivel loosens up.
to fix the arm, I would use a wing nut so it can be tightened by hand if need be / and / or / add in a wire (similar to that used by a coat hanger) fastened by clamps to the bars on either side of the arm bolt to act as a reinforcing spring, but that can be adjusted by the owner.
Solid mount, perfect for Mini!

LOVE the Craven cell phone mount for my Mini! It looks like a custom that came with the car. No issues with installation/mounting (just make sure to get the type proper screwdriver that you can find in an auto supply store). It's very sturdy and well made (no el cheapo materials). I love how it doesn't interfere on the dashboard or block front visibility, but keeps the phone at the right level where I can see it and the road at the same time. As a bonus, CravenSpeed Customer Support (Kellen) was awesome in making sure that I had the right mount for the right Mini model and also my cell phone size! I'm now checking out the CS website for more goodies for my Mini Cooper S!
Looks like it was made by MINI

This mount is perfect. It is sturdy and strong. It keeps my phone right where I need it, without obstructing my view.
Finally, a solution!

This Gemini mount is incredible! I was stunned to realize that I did not even need either of the mounts that come with the armature. The ball joint on the mount fit into the socket that came with my Garmin GPS! While both the large clip and the magnet mounts provided with the Gemini are high quality but the ability to use what I already had makes the installation look more custom.
A great GREAT product... well worth the cost.

Easy install and does exactly what it should. Wish the arm was about 1/4" longer to get the phone completely out from behind the steering wheel but I can live with it. Very sturdy and well made. The real bonus is no modifications to the car are required. Craftsmanship is immediately obvious.

It is a very solid piece and firmly holds my 5" nuvi in place. Not very visible which is nice and clutter free.
Best Phone Mount Out There
Posted by Clubman Owner on 13th Mar 2017
This is the best car phone mount out there. I have tried ones that stick to the dash (they stick for a while, but are not very compatible with pebbled dash finishes), ones that fit in a cup holder (too much vibration) and finally landed on CravenSpeed. While I was hesitant to spend nearly $100 on a mount and also hesitant to take part of my dash apart, it was so worth it and the install was not difficult. This mount looks like it came with my 2017 Clubman. Couldn't be more pleased. Thanks also to CravenSpeed for the quick shipping!

I have been eyeing this mount for quite some time now. I've just been very hesitant to spend that much on a phone mount but I decided to just do it. Installation was easy with the right tools. The mount itself works great. I am very happy with it. I love that it displays my phone right above my steering wheel where it is very easy to see and close enough to reach. I was only planning to use the clamp but I really enjoy the magnet portion. Easy to put on and take off with one hand and it holds great. Also both fit my IPhone 7 Plus great even with a pretty hefty case on. Overall I definitely recommend this product. It also saved you about 60 bucks buying the original Mini phone mount.
Easy to install
Posted by Trisha on 14th Feb 2017
I figured out how to install the phone. Follow the directions and you are in like Flynn! My only problem is that the phone is a little too far left. If I want to enter information, I have to move the phone around. The magnets work and I am looking forward to using this installation to help me find my way in new neighborhoods.
Customer Care Proves Price
Posted by Lars Hindsley on 13th Feb 2017
Who doesn't question paying $75 for a phone mount? Not me. The exact precision in the design is flawless minimalism. Installed without an concerns. Been using it over a year and what... ? For my oversized phone the clamp broke in what may have been an awkward move on my part. Upon contacting customer service a YEAR AFTER THE SALE, I got a response on the weekend. With no argument or hassle. Even better I was offered an alternate mounting solution (just in case). I received both. Follow-up was on point. At every point I recalled my original purchase price and knew this was a true value that justified every penny spent. Beyond all this, the ability to move my phone continually with ease and stability has also been a big reminder that not all mounts meet all your needs. Until this one. Seriously. Buy it. You won't regret it.

Just bought the XXL mount for my Cooper (2nd Gen), and couldn't be happier. It holds my iPhone 6s perfectly, and doesn't obstruct my view of the road. The location is great for navigation, as I can just keep looking forward. Installation was easy, thanks to the video and paper instructions.
Posted by Mark on 30th Dec 2016
Bought one for my wife for Christmas this year. Installation was a snap, the video walks you right through it. Holds the iPhone 6 Plus steady and doesn't block any of the view out the windshield. So much better than a suction mount. Great product, thanks!
Works very well
Posted by Jeff on 16th Dec 2016
A bit pricey but if you are anything like me and get infuriated with taking the phone suction cup holder on and off your windshield it's great I felt so much pleasure in throwing my old phone holder away
If you have a Mini Countryman you must have this!
Posted by Darwin Rogers on 26th Nov 2016
This is costumed made for Mini! It's made perfect to have your phone in line of site with the road. I love it!
Posted by jc on 1st Nov 2016
I gave this item 4 stars because of 2 reasons: 1) its kinda expensive, and 2) one of the screws hits the dash. Other than that, this item looks very professional, great quality, and very small and hidden, and actually looks like it comes from Mini itself.
Easy to install
Posted by Chris on 10th Oct 2016
This product was easy to install and it looks terrific integrated into the dash. My iPhone 6s Plus fits perfectly and it's right where I need to see it, without covering up an air vent. I'm very pleased with this product!
Best service Best product for MINI
Posted by Thouson on 3rd Oct 2016
XXL Smartphone mount is the best phone mount solution for MINI lover. Little advice: I like the design of Scissor a bit compare with the grip arm, however it could not compliable with my iPhone 7+.
My XXL Smartphone mount was broken. Cravenspeed send me a new one for free on the second day (including free shipping). Excellent Service.
Posted by David on 2nd Oct 2016
Just what I wanted. Very easy to install and very useful. I recommend it
Best placement for mount!
Posted by Unknown on 19th Sep 2016
Tried several mounts with magnets, vent clips, and suction cups. This one was not only easy to install onto the back of the gauge cluster, but the placement is right where I wanted my phone to be at while driving. The clip has plenty of tension to ensure the phone does not fall out consider the stiff ride of my car. Highly recommended!
I Phone Holder For MINI
Posted by Unknown on 25th Aug 2016
Great Phone holder for MINI, wife loves it. Easy install, well built!
Posted by CHO on 12th Aug 2016
I used this almost one and a half year. It is strong and big enough to hold my Iphone 6S plus with thick case. A portion of the clip was broken after using 17 months. However, Cravenspeed sent me a replace part for free! What a wonderful product and service! I would like to give 10 stars. Highly recommended!
Posted by Thomas Renaudie on 10th Aug 2016
Nice looking, strong and easy to install it. Perfect as a Mini :)
Posted by Troy on 30th Jul 2016
Love this product, however it was a tight fit and the bolt rubbed against the dash. Many thanks to the support team at CravenSpeed that guided me thru bending the steel arm in a vice to get it not to rub. Love the placement of my phone for use with Waze. Not much you can do in a Roadster, but there is some vibration in the mount with the stiff suspension and road imperfections and is probably aggravated by the larger phone. Highly recommended.
Posted by Ryland on 19th Jul 2016
Installation was a breeze (the instructions provided online were very helpful), the mount fit perfectly in my Mini, and it does exactly what I need it to do (hold the phone). Well done!
cravenspeed mini xxl smartphone mount pro series
Posted by Unknown on 24th Jun 2016
I really like the location of where my phone sits. Its easier to get to and use when i need to. Much better than my previous setup. The only thing i don't like is that there is alot more vibration. The clamp works fine but a good magnet setup would be better for faster 1-handed use.
Excellent Mount but Needed Slight Modification
Posted by Mike Stolfa on 23rd Jun 2016
This is a great mount. Easy to install and easy to use (although I think I would prefer the scissor cradle). The minor issue I ran into was that the bolt and nut that hold the clamp arm to the rest of the mount stuck out a bit too far and caused a small scratch on the dash when the steering wheel was in the lowest position. I removed the mount and made a slight bend forward near where the clamp arm attaches. Reinstalled. Problem solved.
Great product, better service
Posted by Jeffery L Goetz on 17th Jun 2016
Have had this mount for a few years now, but it had a few minor issues. (Glue from grip pads was losing its place.) Emailed Cravenspeed and the sent me out a replacement next day. Like I said, unbeatable service.
Posted by Unknown on 10th Jun 2016
Looks just like it came from the factory!
