"GripGo" claims that it can help improve safety when you're behind the wheel of your vehicle by keeping your phone in place, keeping your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.

Gary Parish is a columnist for CBSSports.com and hosts a local radio show on 92.9 ESPN.

He spends a lot of time on the phone, and mostly while he's driving.

Gary is able to easily attach the "GripGo" to his windshield, and then places his phone on the sticky surface.

The phone is securely in place. Gary hits the road to make sure it stays in place, and to see how convenient it is when it comes to making phone calls.

Gary places and receives several calls, and the clarity is great on both ends.

He did note that keeping the phone on "speaker mode," which you have to do, could cause problems if the windows are down or the air conditioner is on.

Gary also found it very useful with the GPS built into his phone.

He was able to clearly see the maps, and didn't have to keep the GPS in his hand to see where he was going.

"GripGo" was able to do what it claims, and Gary thinks it is a good way to improve safety if you have to use your phone while driving.
