Easy and simple to use cell phone car holder. I love the fact that I can just place the phone on the magnetic air vent mount and take it off without the need to unlatch or pull something apart like those other types of mounts. Whenever I go for a trip out of town, I keep an extra one in my suitcase for the rental car.
Positioning of the metal plate differs from car to car. I have not ran into many issues with phone falling except for the few times where my rental car had the positioning of the air vents in such a way that it was more vertical like this:
Instead of a slight slant like this:
Phone Cases Oh Joy! It worked fine for my phone cases too. My current phone is Galaxy S9 and one favorite case is the speck case. It has a good rubbery grip on the back so it holds the phone really well on the car mount. My wife uses one of those bling cases with the crystals on the back, so it didn’t provide good contact with the magnetic air mount vent to hold her phone.
All in all it’s a good product as long as you have a “thin” phone case. It works great if you use your phone without a case as well. Just peel off sticker and place the metal plate directly to the phone.
Magnets! Say WUH! As far as the magnet goes, it has not caused any issues for me . The camera still works fine and nothing has been “erased” from the phone memory from the magnet.
