The Archos Car Mount 50146 with FM Transmitter is a fantastic way to use your Archos as a GPS and car stereo. I purchased this Archos Car Mount on Amazon just before a road trip from Los Angeles to Portland, Oregon.
The GPS functionality was one of the main reasons I picked up my Archos 5 and couldn’t wait to try it out. The mount is very secure and I was never worried about it falling of the windshield. It also made me a safer driver as I didn’t have to look down on my lap to check the directions. As a car stereo the Car Mount for Archos is great. No longer did I have to fumble around in traffic looking for a song or adjusting the volume. The FM transmitter has good signal strength and I was rocking all the way to the great northwest.
That was until my Archos 5 was stolen. One of the really bad things about this windshield mount is that it sits on the windshield in plain site of anyone who walks by. Now, I know I should have stored it in my glove box before getting out for a Grand Slam breakfast at Denny’s but I was in a rush and just forgot. This really isn’t the fault of the Archos Car Mount but it is something to consider.
Would I purchase this again? Well that depends on if I get the money together to buy another Archos 5 tablet.
