New Osomounts come with NFC

A new trio of smartphone mounts from Osmount have been launched.

Complete with a new 'push to clamp' feature and built-in NFC, the range of mounts, which includes suction, air-vent and CD slot versions mean you can configure your NFC enabled smartphone to launch your choice of app when it is docked in the cradle.

The new clamp feature is also worthy of note. Press a top mounted button to open the clamp where it locks, then just pop your smartphone into the mount. As it touches the back of the mount the claws are released and clamp onto your phone.

It works well and makes for simple, one-handed operation. And with NFC you can quickly configure your chosen nav app to launch as soon as it is docked. All the mounts are priced at 24.99ea. And until the end of August, PocketGPSWorld readers can benefit from a 20% discount, use offer code PocketNFC at checkout.

Really good suction. Haven't used the NFC yet. Even cheaper on ebay where I got mine.

Add a speaker, like the top level Garmin car mounts, and it would be perfect.

Worth noting that no iPhone to date has NFC so can't use this facility to open an App.

I've got an iPhone. What's NFC? Do I want it? Does it have a FM to R?

Near Field Communication. No. No not with an iPhone. Can't understand why people pay through the nose for a buttoned up, tied down, overpriced phone anyway. Other than, of course, so that they can keep up with the Jones' and cackle loudly so that they can be heard by lotsapeople "I've got and iPhone 5, beat that"

I've got a scummy Android device, and guess what, it will do loads more than an iPhone. See 101 things an iPhone can't do

My HTC One has NFC but I turned it off.

I reckon it could be risky ?
