It fits well into my Cooper, and does a great job of holding my iPod Touch so I can change tracks without crashing.
The only problem is that it is not designed well for the Touch, as the headphone jack is on the bottom of the unit, unlike the iPhone. This is now concealed by one of the supporting legs on the cradle and cannot be accessed. It will be fine for iPod compliant stereos that use an iPod cable, but not for AUX-type 3.5mm cables.
It can be gotten around by fitting the iPod upside down in the cradle as it can be rotated through 360 degrees, you will just need to make sure it is held securely and does not drop out when going over speed humps etc. My iPod has a rubber case so is pretty well gripped when fitted, but I may end up taking a Dremel to one of the legs in the future to let me access the jack.
All in all I recommend the mCup, but bear in mind it may not be perfect in all cases.

A brilliant purchase. Fits in my C-Max's cup holder perfectly and is pretty solid. My phone, iPod and SatNav all fit in nicely due to the changeable thingies (?!). Very, very happy with it

This holds my iPhone 4S securely in or out of its flip case (with the flip folded behind or left dangling), and the buttons, headphone socket, speakers and sync cable are unobstructed. It also fits my 2g iPod Nano (in or out of case) - the flip down support does cover the sync and headphone sockets but the side grips hold it well enough to do without it.

Once in place it feels solid with very little wobble, sitting between the gear stick and my left knee which is much lower than an air vent or windscreen mount. This is fine for music or answering the phone but not so good for satnav - you do have to fight the temptation to look down at the map instead of where you are going, but it's still better than steering with one hand, changing gear with the other, and holding an A-Z in a third.

On my first attempt to fit it into my Focus Mk1 as I tightened the base up it tried to climb up out of the cupholder - the 'ears' on the rubber pads look like they should sit on the top of the cup hole not inside it and on the Focus the top of the hole is at an angle. Once I'd taken a Stanley knife to the 'ears' it works really well and would probably now fit almost 'all' cars rather than just 'most' - manufacturer take note.

Bear in mind that it only costs £16 and is made from plastic; bend the stalk to the approximate position before tightening the base or attaching the phone - if treated carefully it's a good bit of kit and should last a good long time.

Originally bought a cheap mount that said it would mount on the dashboard. It lied.
This, on the other hand, does exactly what it says. Solid, secure, well made and well worth the premium over tacky windshield/dash mounts.

On the plus side - the iphone is held well in the grips. There are two grips you can fit and they're adjustable.
The size adaptable base is a good idea and worked well in my Honda CRV - got a good purchase in the cup holder (but unfortunately in the CRV the cupholder is elbow placed so it wasn't best positioned - but that's the car not the item.

On the negative side - only used it three times and when it came loose one time went to tighten the base a bit and a piece of plastic in the base snapped inside and then it was rendered useless.

Sadly I shoved it in the glove compartment thinking 'Must get that returned before the 3 months is up'.
But just found it in the car and the three months is now up.

So for me it was a total waste of money. Not repairable so headed to landfill site.

Shame.

Hi purchased this product as my car doesn't have the normal air vents for the majaority of vehicle ipod holders method of attachment. The item works really well, you place it into the cup holder then twist the base which expands making the whole device fit tight and snug into the cup holder, the head of the unit rotates so you can have the ipod in either the vertical or horizontal position, my only wish is that the neck stem was slightly shorter for my vehicle but still its not a big thing just me wanting it to be absloutley perfect for my vehicle set up. the build quality is excellant and the price for the product you are getting is well worth it. I would recommend this product to any one who has a cup holder in their car and are looking for a ipod holder.

I bought this to fit in my BMW twin cup holder. The two holes of the twin cup holder overlap and leave an open space in the centre. The Macally mount fits well into either of the holes. To position the phone it is necessary to rotate the neck (stalk). The picture on the box shows that it will rotate 360 degrees but in fact what appears to be the lower adjustable nut is in fact a dummy. The only nut that will rotate and adjust is the one for the base expanding clamps. If I rotate the base to achieve the desired rotation then one of the clamps then moves to be partly in the open space of the two cup holders. This makes it much less stable as it is effectively only supported by three legs instead of four. A slight touch will then make it tend to pivot.

It is possible to re-bend the neck to get a different angle but is very stiff (a good point) and difficult to achieve this way.

I sent the first one back as faulty but the second one was exactly the same. I wrote to the dealer in Germany who very politely agreed with my findings and admitted that the 360 degrees of rotation is misleading as far as the instructions are concerned.

It is a nice neat unit that I will keep but be aware that it is not easy to get the correct alignment and the top phone clamp appears to be fragile so will need care when adjusting the neck. It is worth the money and would have got 5 stars if the dummy nut was a working nut. It will be perfectly acceptable in full circle cup holders.
