Magnetic phone mount, would have included a phone case with a disc of metal in the back

Here's something similar

u/TH3_Captn · 22 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

I'm just gonna go ahead and let everyone know that's a Rick roll and here's a link to an actual product:

u/Baron-Harkonnen · 12 pointsr/Android

I like iOttie's line. I have their V3 model and use it every day:

u/VMX · 11 pointsr/Android

I received my (regular) Pixel 4 last Friday and I really couldn't be happier with it.

I was a bit scared due to all the backlash it had received, especially regarding battery life... but it seems like the trend continues and smartphone reviews are growing increasingly pointless for me every year.

I was coming from a Galaxy S8 with a 3000 mAh battery, which was (rightly) praised due to its good battery life, and which didn't seem to degrade much over the course of these two years, just like Samsung claimed. And to be clear, the S8 didn't give me a single problem and I was happy with it. I upgraded mostly because I wanted to give the S8 to my dad and because I really wanted to go back to a phone with the best camera for still pictures.

Well, I don't know how well the battery on the Pixel 4 will hold up long-term... but to my surprise, right now it's lasting a bit longer than the S8 did.

Everything else is just amazing. I didn't know that an Android phone could actually feel this smooth. The 90 Hz mode feels like eye bleach to me when it kicks in... it makes using my phone so much more pleasing and relaxing. The S8 worked well and didn't lag, but the Pixel 4 is on a whole different level here. It's obviously one of those things that you can't understand until you try it for yourself, especially since most reviews aren't recorded at 90 fps and most of us don't watch them on 90 Hz screens.

Also, the general UI is so clean and tidy. I actually liked Samsung's One UI, but Google's software just feels a lot more elegant and professional. I definitely prefer it.

Then there's Android 10 gesture system, which works a lot better than I expected. When you swipe the bottom of the screen laterally to jump to the last app, there isn't a single stutter even though the whole app is shifting away and being replaced by another one. And at 90 Hz, it just feels like you're moving physical cards around as they follow your finger.

Always-On Display also looks better to me than Samsung's. It's a lot more subtle and cohesive with the lockscreen and the overall phone UI. Oh, and the "Now Playing" feature is so damn nice to have.

Face unlock has been lightning fast and super reliable as reviews rightly claimed, I just hope my bank upgrades to the new APIs soon.

Soli has been useful when I reach for my phone or want to snooze alarms. I haven't really needed to use the feature to skip songs, but when I tested it briefly, it seemed to work every single time as well. I can see it being very useful when driving my car using my phone as GPS, mounted vertically using one of these magnetic mounts.

Best part is, I haven't yet tested the camera properly... even though it was the main reason why I got this phone! I've been so impressed with everything else that I haven't really felt the need to go out and test the camera itself. I think I'll just let it take me by surprise whenever I need to use it.

I could continue listing good things about the phone, but you get the point. I don't know if casual users will feel the same as me about the Pixel 4, but I don't really feel like reviews are painting a realistic image of this phone. It's, by far, the best phone I've ever owned.

To mention a negative:

As we all knew, the peak brightness of the display doesn't seem to go as high as Samsung's, which is OK now but will probably be a bit of a bummer in the summer when I try using my phone in the beach or with sunglasses. Not a dealbreaker for me as I hardly get 1 or 2 weeks of beach time per year... but I can see that being a no-go for people who live by the coast.

TL; DR: Don't pay much attention to smartphone reviews except for very objetive measurements (e.g.: Anandtech's articles). Just try them for yourself and make your own choices based on your personal experience.

u/GreatTragedy · 11 pointsr/nexus6

The RAM X-Grip is what I use. Absolutely love it. It's also great that RAM makes their mounts modular, so if you get a different phone in the future that won't work with it, you can use the same suction cup and arm and just buy a different holster piece.

u/LoopholeTravel · 10 pointsr/onebagging

When we travel, we will often rent a car to do some exploring. We use offline Google Maps to navigate, and this little magnetic mount to attach the phone to the car's air vent. It's really small and convenient to toss in the bag.

u/forensikat · 10 pointsr/Lyft

The most invaluable thing is for you, not passengers, and that's a phone mount. I got this one and I think it's great! You need it because you need to know where you're going and easily follow directions, but you don't want to be holding your phone or looking at your lap. I did my first day (~2 hours) without the mount and then got it the next day. It was great. I'll never not use it.

For pax, I have water, mints, chocolate, and dum dums, but tbh I've been eating most of the lolipops haha! Get what you want and just be friendly. Most (not all, some people are still assholes) pax know that anything beyond a ride and friendly smile is extra and not expected.

u/reverendnathan · 9 pointsr/MotoX

I'd only recommend the Hint if you've come to rely on BT ear buds. The X is very functional with "whip-right-out-of-your-pocket" functionality thanks to active display turning on and deep listening ready to go.

The car dock I bought is a U-grip for ten bucks. It's not perfect, but it certainly holds my device in place with absolutely no slippage, and the rotation ball on the dock is adjustable which is nice. Easy to remove.

If I can upsell you on car crap, the Kinivo bluetooth car unit in particular supports AptX as do Moto products! No quality compromise versus AUX IN... ditch the wires in your car! I mounted the controller low and can pause and skip in a very comfortable position where the unit is hidden-- honestly, don't know how I went so long with something so dang convenient.

If you are splurging, the turbo charger is cool. For when you've got no plugs, a powerbank is nice. Other than power and cord management, this phone takes away a lot of necessity for accessories.

u/curtisharrington1988 · 9 pointsr/iphone

I use a CD phone mount, that's the sturdiest one I've used. Obviously you need a CD player, and don't have reason to use the CD player, and then it works great. I have a iPhone 7 Plus in an Otterbox case and it fits just fine.

u/your_rando · 8 pointsr/motorcycles

RAM mount.

Lifeproof case.

Waterproof/waterproof-able USB port adapter.

I use it as a backup GPS. You can pair it with various devices and helmet bluetooth gizmos, to make and take calls, etc. I don't mess with any of that, some folks do and like it. For music I use standard earplugs and an old-school iPod Classic, Babydriver style.

u/tendrax · 8 pointsr/motorcycles

Not sure what exact model he is using but the RAM X-Grip Mounts are pretty popular and work very well.

u/breastblessed · 8 pointsr/Android

I just use my retired Galaxy Note 2 with a lightweight lollipop ROM (liquid smooth) and this

~ mount Only $10 and free one day shipping if you are a prime member. It won’t open any wider than a note 2 but it holds securely to both the phone and the dashboard even in this 0 degree weather outside right now. Wish I could leave my phone out in the cold too. I hate North Idaho.

~ Dashcam - I use Dailyroads Voyager It uses cyclic recording so it can keep overwriting and not using up too much space. It can run in the background while I use waze, music, OK Google, etc. You can also set it to save the video when it senses x amount of G forces. Or you can tap the screen at any time to save the video… It has tons of features and the shocking part is it’s free! Since work provides me with unlimited data tethering on my phone I also utilize it’s cloud backup feature.

~ OBD II - For car diagnostics reading I use BAFX OBD2 I was literally shocked at how easy this was to plug in and pair to my phone! For close to $25 I had tons of information about how my car is “feeling” right in front of me. I’ve only tested a few but I stuck with Dash Some of the things it tells me are engine temperature, engine load, speed, MPG, coolant temperature, RPM, air/fuel ratio… anyway, my favorite part of the app is how it keeps track of my trips.. locations, statistics, where I last parked. Love it.

Things I’m still working on are getting an inverter in my trunk to power a small/cheap router and raspberry pi plus small ssd so that in the case of theft my dashcam app could save to the ssd in my trunk to catch the filthy thief. Looks like there is enough room behind the plastic cover where they keep the tire changing tools to keep this equipment hidden from sight. If anyone has better ideas please let me know. Maybe someday I will impress a nice guy ………

u/silicon_reverie · 7 pointsr/nexus6

I use the Ram Mount Universal X-Grip with mixed results. If you're looking to do the same, buy the Large version.

  • Expensive, but modular. You can buy arm extensions, motorcycle mounts, and a range of other accessories to fit everything from iPhones to tablets.
  • Camera is free to record the road.
  • The Medium grip (listed above) is an uncomfortably snug fit with Shamu. If you add a case, like my Spigen Slim Armor, you'll be extending the mount fully and forcing the phone into place every time - not recommended.
  • The Large grip fits the phone and case quite well, but is more expensive.
  • Ram mounts allow some slight rotation when locked in place (+- 5 degrees or so), and this is more pronounced with looser fits than with tight ones. However, there's enough friction in the mechanism to keep it from rotating on its own, even on bumpy roads.
  • The suction cup holds its own against the Texas heat, but won't stick to anything besides glass. I've tried it on a smooth, polished hardwood dining table, a dry erase board, and a stainless steel fridge, but my car's windshield is the only spot where it doesn't fall down. Don't even think about attaching to a plastic dashboard, even if it's smooth and flat. For this reason, I've seriously considered 3D printing a longer arm for my old iOttie mount that clings to any surface you throw it against.

    There's no wireless charging, either, though I tend to shy away from car chargers due to the potential for current spikes and other idiosyncracies that lower my non-removable battery's lifespan.

    Not the cheapest or best, but it holds the phone in place when attached to a windshield. Buy this if you like modular mounts with a good grip - it's easy to extend the length, switch to a motorcycle, or upgrade to a tablet by swapping a few parts. Look elsewhere for wireless charging, dashboard mounting, or cheap prices.
u/MrSelfDestruct_XIII · 7 pointsr/iphone

I've been using the Kenu Airframe for years without issue.

u/rmh86 · 7 pointsr/iphone

I've used this one for a few years now (from 4 to 5S to 6). Love it's simplicity. The 6 pushes it to its widest so any bigger and I'd have to get a replacement.

u/james_bell · 7 pointsr/nexus5x

I bought this: which came with 2 very thin metal plates. I opened the back and put one on the battery - no bulge or problem doing this. Phone sticks to the magnetic mount like a champ now.

u/MagnusTheRabbit · 6 pointsr/Android

Here is where I got it on amazon it is in my 2011 Honda Civic, and a 3rd party plate in my case. It holds my LG G4 with my 8500 mah battery, and my iPhone 6s+. I've been using it for six months with no down sides at all.

u/DMAC55 · 6 pointsr/FordFocus

Kenu Airframe

It rotates 360 degress at 45 degree increments, nice soft rubber that has great grip, has a nice little squeeze/tension to hold the phone.

Slides right onto the AC vents, I decided to go for the middle left vent but the far left vent would be a nice location as well.

I like this as it stays out of the way of my field of view and looks clean, no suction cup non-sense unless you like those types.

u/JoshLitvinoff · 6 pointsr/iphone

I’ve used this for years. Works fantastic. Kenu Airframe+ | Vent Car Phone Mount | Android Car Mount and iPhone Car Holder, iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus/8, iPhone 7 Plus/7, iPhone 6s Plus/6s, iPhone 6 Plus/6 Car Accessories Phone Stand | Black

u/Slinkwyde · 6 pointsr/raspberry_pi

If you only have a 5" screen, it sounds like you might as well use Android Auto directly on your phone screen (standalone mode) so that all you need is your phone, the app, and a cheap mount (like this one). That's how I use it. Works best in portrait mode.

u/tuttipazzo · 6 pointsr/essential

I like it, however, I would like to see a back cover on bottom half to 2/3. Why? Because I have several of these:


And it comes with a metal plate you place between your phone and case so the phone stays in place. It looks awesome in the car because there's nothing obscuring the phone. It looks like it's floating.


u/paradox4286 · 6 pointsr/Toyota

Not a RAV4 owner but I have one of these (below) in my IS250 and it's great.

u/tmeuze · 6 pointsr/GalaxyS7

I use a magnetic mount like this. Owing to the metal build of the phone, it stays put without even using the included plates, even with a case on (same as yours).
So easy to set and remove when getting in and out of the car.

u/CAYCE_VII · 6 pointsr/AndroidWear

I took this stand and filed out a slot large enough to fit the angled part of this cable to the left of the hole for the Apple Watch charger and used a magnetic car dock to keep my charger from moving around and allows me to easily switch between my G Watch R charger and my Urbane charger.

I'll post more pictures after I get home from work.

u/jjremy · 6 pointsr/Nexus6P


Just get yourself one of these, and grab a cheap 12volt USB adapter.

There is no way a car mount should be THAT expensive!

u/mjoseph998 · 6 pointsr/GalaxyS8

I use this one. It is amazing and holds it very well. The spring loaded part is what I like the most - it hold the phone extremely well without slipping. iOttie Easy One Touch 3

edit - changed link title

u/Syphon0928 · 6 pointsr/Lyft

I've used one of these for years and it's worked great. It's simple, doesn't take up much space, I don't need to fumble around clipping it like a traditional mount.

Edit: typo

u/mds · 5 pointsr/ToyotaTacoma

I use one of these, which I'm pretty happy with:

I like that it's pretty low profile when not in use. Also doesn't block the view of any part of the road. The thing I like best is that it's super easy to put the phone in with one hand, no fiddling around with both hands or having to readjust the angle every time, just pop it in and go.

It only works in landscape mode (which is fine for maps). Also the sticky tape that came with it was useless. I stuck it to the dash with heavy duty velcro tape.

u/OptimusPrune · 5 pointsr/S7Edge

Get one of the dozens of magnetic mounts that are 4.5+ stars average rating on Amazon. If you run with a naked phone or slim case, the phone has enough magnetism to hold without even applying a plate. If you're running a thicker case, just drop the mount between the case and phone without using the adhesive.

It's a metal plate that sticks to the magnet in a magnetic phone holder for a car.

u/_BlueDottie_ · 5 pointsr/whatisthisthing

It's a phone holder. It's magnetic. A small magnet attached to the phone makes it stick. It swivels so that you can mount it wherever works best (like a car dash) and then lock it in place when it's at the right angle.

Similar thing, different brand here:

u/Joshy3367 · 5 pointsr/ft86

I dont recommend any of the above posted.

YOU MUST get the iOttie V3. It was on sale with prime day for $17, usually $25. Which it is now. The suction of the cup is outstanding and the phone wobble is next to none if any at all. Free prime shipping. I think 1 year warranty. And has tons of great reviews!

u/tolan77 · 5 pointsr/galaxynote4

I have the new version of that the EasyTouch 3 link here and it's incredible with this phone best car mount I've ever had. I've used it even with the extended battery and case so it could handle anything you throw at it.

u/trinaryoc · 5 pointsr/motorcycles
u/TheBullshitPatrol · 5 pointsr/nexus4

Why do you need a branded one? I nabbed this when it was on sale for $13 a week or so back. It's amazing. I usually hate suction-ey adhesive shit, because it never works, but the use of both suction and a reusable adhesive simultaneously is genius.

u/hahahoudini · 5 pointsr/bmpcc

Battery solution is a top priority, the cheapest solution i ve found is using a battery marketed to tablets and cell phones; the one i got was around $40 and can power the bmpcc for 10hrs. Edit: This, and recently also picked up this

u/ImALittleCrackpot · 5 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop

I have this CD slot magnetic mount and it's the best phone holder I've ever used. When I drove a taxi, it firmly held my phone with an extended battery and a rugged case (so it had significant weight) through all but the worst Michigan potholes.

u/Shidell · 5 pointsr/MotoG

I ordered this:

It's magnetic and affixes to the CD slot, which means it's mounted lower than the windshield. I previously had a Galaxy Nexus (and it's car dock), so I'm used to having it on the window.

So far, it's working really well. It's pretty strong and holds the phone without issue, and the metal plate fits in the back of the Moto G (2014) case without problem. I can't speak to the other models that are slightly smaller.

u/CSI_Tech_Dept · 5 pointsr/prius

This is a bit difficult question, because different people have different preferences and use different phones.

Some people don't like to block their vents, I live in Southern California, where if I used regular dash, it would shorten life of my phone battery due to the very high heat that accumulates there.

So in my case blocking the vent is intentional, so the AC can keep the phone cool. So far this mount works best for me:

It can be mounted on the center console and I use phone mounted horizontally through help of an USB-C angled connector:

That seems to work well for me: minimal sun glare, horizontal position makes phone (HTC 10) content visible through polarized glasses. Doesn't obstruct anything important 2015 Prius IV (it sits on the mechanical CD door, but the way the console opens doesn't cause issues with it.)

Some things that didn't work for me:

Initially I also used ExoGear Car Mount: but stopped due to phone getting hot (might start using again in the winter)

Then I used Kenu Airframe+:

That fit on my left vent, kept my phone cool, and in vertical position (worked better with my M8 (no problem with polarized glasses)) although that location overall is not that good (you have to look to the side if you want to check map and there is often a sun glare there)

So, I'm the most happy with my current mount.

u/CrispyConan · 5 pointsr/veloster

I got these to keep my phone from sliding around ( It works really well and adds a little color to the interior. Comes with a lot of pieces (both cupholders, door handles and storage, center console, and both cubbies in the front and back). Otherwise I’d go with one of those tiny magnetic mounts that can be pushed into the air vents (

u/anapoe · 5 pointsr/cars

I also glued the left center column vent on my forester in place (pic showing a forester of that era) and put a magnetic phone mount like this one on that vent. This is personally my favorite car mod ever.

u/ppfftt · 5 pointsr/prius

I searched Amazon reviews for ones that specifically mentioned Prius and ended up with this vent mount. I have it attached to the far left side of the center passenger air vent, just above the LCD screen. It works perfectly and I highly recommend it!

u/Threeshoe · 5 pointsr/oneplus

This happened on my nexus 5 and I accidentally fixed it a few months later by applying a strong, phone-safe magnet to the back from

u/mrgreywater · 4 pointsr/Motorrad

On the R1200R, the gps is connected with the 12V auxiliary power cable which is switched on with the ignition. This cable can be acquired at your bmw motorcycle shop: hornig

You take this cable, and connect the proper leads (see description of the link above) with this usb power regulator: ebay/amazon

I've tried a few different 12V to 5V usb regulators, but this is the only one that charges the phone consistently with 2 Amps. Most other regulators I've tested don't supply a consistent 5V when the bikes 12V fluctuates (e.g coming to a stop/accelerating/switching to highbeam) causing the phone to drop to a lower charging speed.

I've found an adapter plate to mount that usb regulator to the handlebar in a local bike shop (standard ~28mm diameter socket) for $5. You can probably also cut a piece of plastic/metal like this and mount it with a handlebar screw. Alternatively: twistedthrottle

To hold your phone, Ram Mounts X-Grip works best (though expensive). You can replace one bolt on the handlebar for an anchoring point: hornig/amazon.

The best/most secure throttle lock I've found is brake away: . You would have to measure the available space and handlebar diameter to choose the right one though.

u/MrVanillacoke · 4 pointsr/nexus4

I have a Moga Bluetooth controller, a "U-Grip" car dock, a dbrand black leather backing, and the wireless dock. I also got an LG Bluetooth adapter to play wireless music in my apartment.

I think all those things were definitely worth every penny... I feel like I've maximized the potential of my phone. The phone is a good chunk of money, so I want to use it to its potential.

u/mootwo · 4 pointsr/galaxynote4

Copied this from another comment I made a few months ago:

I use this one:

It fits into the CD slot which I never use. It comes with a metal plate, which I've put inside the phone behind the back cover. This is what holds the phone magnetically to the mount.

I have a short USB cable leading from the charger port to the phone.

I am very happy with it. It holds my phone really securely and doesn't block the screen at all in landscape orientation. It does block it a little in portrait orientation but I don't mind too much.

Overall for $20 I'm very happy, and it's lasted several years.

u/TyIzaeL · 4 pointsr/prius

That's too low to be useful. You can't glance at it without taking your eyes off the road. I use a CD slot mount. It works very well and fits just about any phone.

u/cb1037 · 4 pointsr/whatisthisthing

Yeah, something like this one. It's supposed to slide on to your car's vent. Magnetic sticker goes on the phone.

u/titanchip · 4 pointsr/GalaxyS7

I'm loving it so far, I don't think I'm going to use it as a cardholder. I got a vent mount for someone as a gift. I think I'm going to get one for me and put the metal plate in there. I tried it out and it works awesome.

The case looks good, the buttons don't stick out and it's already survived a hard fall on the hardwood floor. I think I'm going to keep it. Love this phone and want to keep it pristine as long as I can. case I'm using vent clip I'm talking about

Stay away from the case with the kickstand. The kickstand is flimsy as hell and will probably be lost within a week. Only cheap feeling product I've ever gotten from spigen.

u/bmf666 · 4 pointsr/GalaxyNote9

I use the Spigen Kuel A200 magnetic mount on my phone in the car. Like the Note7 and S7 Edge I had before my Note 9, this mount is capable of supporting the phone in my car through 99% of my driving with the exception of extreme bumps WITHOUT any additional magnetic material added to the case or phone. There is enough force from the magnets to the magnetic material already in the phone to support it. The mount does come with magnetic stickers (well, I guess ferrous stickers) to improve the magnetic force, but I find them unnecessary. Also these stickers interfere with wireless charging which I use a lot.

edit - I didn't go through lots of mounts or anything so I can't say if other magnetic mounts work well enough. This one worked on the first try back with my Note7 so I never had to try any others. Also, I use very thin TPU cases which will play a role. My case is:

u/lioncat55 · 4 pointsr/AmazonFlexDrivers

This is the one I have. I find it quite easy to use. Push to snap the phone and then pinch the sides to release it. When you pinch the sides, it's easy to grab the phone at the same time.

I have a buddy that does food deliveries and also uses it. he loves it so much that when his failed he got a warranty replacement.

u/zerodameaon · 4 pointsr/FiestaST

I use the Iottie 3 and have it mounted to the wing window above the side view mirror. The long neck works great and I can see it out of the corner of my eye without taking my eyes off the road. I ran a long cable up through the center console and under the steering wheel so I can charge my phone while driving.

EDIT: No photos but I was able to find this guys post who did the same thing.

u/OllieMcJeeves · 3 pointsr/ProjectFi

I have this one in my MINI and it is fantastic. Very slick and holds pretty much any phone (including my Nexus 6) with no problems at all.

u/monicakmtx · 3 pointsr/GalaxyNote9

If you're looking for something very minimalist, my husband and I are both very happy with these. For fast charging I just use an Anker fast charger and fast charging cable. The charger is out of sight in the center console. With the battery life of the Note 9 tho, I rarely need it.



u/candle_this · 3 pointsr/opiates

Hey me too! If you don't already have one, I just bought this phone mount and it works great, highly recommend it.

u/darkamikaze · 3 pointsr/Nexus6P

To answer your magnet question, no it will not affect your battery at all. Even compass for me hasn't really been affected but I only really get to see it used in Maps which works great 98% of time (2% when I'm stopped, it thinks I'm facing the other direction)

I've owned Steelie and the nGroove by Mountek.

Steelie is alright. It adds a bit of fun in life by making you question, "hey, is this metal?" and you test your steelie on it. This becomes a fun habit. As far as a dedicated car dock 7-8/10. Having only a small portion of your phone mounted means it can be tougher to use while docked compared to the nGroove (it will wobble here and there forcing you to put your hand slightly behind it to counteract the force). Finding the perfect angle can also be a bit tough. I've had my steelie for about 2 years now and the padding in the center has lost its grip. I had to rip the padding out and ended up replacing it with microsuction tape. Without the padding your phone will just slide down so the microsuction helped there.

I originally had it on my Nexus 4 which was quite a heavy phone so on longer drives you'll see it start angling down due to the weight. I've just recently put it on my N6P just to try it again and I haven't witnessed this but I haven't really had the chance to use it too much. I think the problem is the small contact surface the phone has with the mount.

In summary, I can't recommend it too much unless you find enjoyment having a magnet on the back of your phone (which like I said can be fun!)

I would recommend the metal plate approach just cause it adds more contact surface and the dock itself will have a stronger hold with your device. You'll have no problems of it swaying in big bumps or trouble using it with one finger since it's really secure on there. TechMatte MagGrip CD or the nGroove Snap 3

After reading The Wirecutter's article on it, I got the TechMatte CD slot magnetic one, and I've been really happy with it. It does definitely block a bunch of buttons on the center console but I rarely use them anyway, and it's just so simple to use. I've never had to fiddle with anything or worry about it in any way.

u/nk00 · 3 pointsr/iosgaming

I have a magnetic mount in my car (fits right into the CD Player slot and is extremely convenient since I never use CDs anymore), and a metal piece that goes into my case (case even has a built in slot for the metal piece). I've never noticed any issues with the magnet or metal piece, no phone weirdness, no signal strength or reception issues, nothing at all. I've used it for the last year on my old 5S, and now for a few months on my new 6S+. highly recommend.

u/FireReadyAim · 3 pointsr/Justrolledintotheshop
u/iampanis · 3 pointsr/zenfone2

This is what I use. It has a magnet that clips onto an air vent and a steel plate that attaches to your phone to stick to the magnet. The plate is probably intended to go under a case but will fit under the normal backplate of the ZF2 if you don't use one. This might break NFC functionality if you care about that, haven't tried it. Has worked pretty well for me. There's a bigger version with a stronger magnet but it doesn't really seem necessary even for a big phone like this.

u/RedOctober357 · 3 pointsr/WRX

I bought a magnetic air vent clip that came with a magnetic back plate that I attached to the accessport. Here's the link. No problems holding the accessport and you can move it to the far left of the vent to where you still get some air.

u/octobereighth · 3 pointsr/nexus5x

Depending on where you'll be traveling (i.e., depending on the temperature), you could get a magnetic phone mount that clips to your vent. Then turn the AC on - the AC will blow right at the phone!

Doubly good, since it will (hopefully) put your phone in a convenient navigation location.

I have this one and it's been great; there are tons of others on Amazon pretty cheap.

The iOttie Easy One Touch 3 has been a pleasure to use. It fits the Nexus 5X well, and the one touch design is not just a gimmick - it is legit so much more convenient than any other mount I've used, and no need to attach anything to your phone like the magnet based ones. If you'll notice, the product is listed as "One Touch 3 (V2.0)". The 2.0 is important because the first iteration had a bad spring mechanism that would break in relatively short amounts of time. Been using the 2.0 for a long time now, so far so good.

USB Power $10 I used one for the phone itself and one for the hub, however you only need one. I just didnt not want the amplifier taking power away from charging the phone. Redundancy is nice too. Extra USB ports for whatever.

USB Hub $7 For all the gadgets.

USB Phone Power Cable $5 This is the real weak point in the setup. I've gone through a lot of these. is good for really cheap cords.

[Phone Audio output(between phone and amplifier)] (
$7 Quality cord here. Purchased for the right angle plug.

Amplifier output connection: $30 After not being able to hear very well with no amplifier, this greatly improved the experience.

Helmet coil cord $5 With this cord you never know the cord is there until you get off the bike and it will break away.

Helmet speakers: $10 I found a great deal on ebay for some "hoodie" speakers and I epoxied them in the helmet. You could always use this setup with earbuds too, but I was never fond of getting them pulled out while riding.

Phone mount $35 I would trust it will an $800 phone.

If you like to tinker with stuff you can get a close (but rough) imitation of a DIY laptop using the Motorola Atrix Lapdock with a board like the Odroid XU or the Odroid XU Lite.

If you google "raspberry lapdock" you'll find many guides that will help you to get started.

If you want a "full" DIY experience you'll have to hunt down the parts. Example:

  • the Screen
  • the Controller (also check you get the proper controller for your screen, i just posted random ones)
  • the board of your choice (Odroid, UDOO, something with a decent CPU/GPU)
  • a small keyboard (this have a touchpad, also here a random one)
  • a proper battery pack (you need 12v to run the LCD usually, unless you tinker a lot with it)
  • all the peripherals (bluetooth dongles, wifi dongles, usb sticks, sd cards, HDDs, speakers)

    You'll need some decent electronics knowledge, linux experience and lots of patience.

    Recently i wanted to build a 11.6" laptop with a UDOO Quad board (since i could get one from a friend for a low price), after choosing all the parts i wanted, the cost was about 220€ (270$).

    The hardest part is putting everything togheter in a case. I would recommend a 3d printed one or laser cut one but remember that it won't ever look as good as a manufactured laptop.

    This will be by no means an easy or cheap project. You're going to put much time and money into it. If you value the experience itself above everything else, go for it. If you just want a laptop, buy one.

    P.S. Probably i made some mistake here and there, so forgive me. Also, i'm no expert, iìm just a guy that likes to put projects on paper and never actually build them because i lack the money or the tools. So, take my word for what it's worth :)
u/studdmufin · 3 pointsr/PanasonicG7

let me preface this with: You do this at your own risk, while I haven't had issues does not make me responsible if anything of yours breaks.

The camera technically uses a 7.2v battery even tho the bottom of the camera says it accepts 8.4v. I'm not sure why there is a discrepancy.

Any battery bank with a 9v dc out would work. XTPower 10000 mAh has 4 LEDs on it to indicate power.(There are multiple sizes in that link too) or if you need even more power the RAVPower 23000 mAh has lots of juice, a display for remaining % and voltage options ranging up to 20v which can power some laptops.

I've used AIM data loggers and made my own arduino based accelerometer and GPS data acquisition systems; but lately I prefer the phone/tablet based GPS logging apps when paired with an external 10Hz+ GPS. IMO, the ability to easily review the data on the spot and provide immediate feedback and comparisons between runs far out weighs the bell and whistles of the more advanced systems that typically require plugging into a computer to review the data. Phone mounting is really not an issue if you get a good mount (I use a ram mount or [kenu airframe] (

I didn't like the high cost of Solostorm, so I prefer RaceChrono for it's simplicity, while some people like Harry's Laptimer. They will all give you speed, position, and accel from the GPS data. How they differ is in the user interface and presentation of the data. For overlaying data on video, I use [Dashware] (

Regarding the actual data, I personally find the speed and position data more useful than just the long/lat accel data. Pro Tip: You'll gain a lot of insight by logging data of people faster than you.

I used to use the unicorn beetle pro. The screen protector is a cheap piece of plastic which didn't sit flat on the screen and scratched easily. I actually just ripped the plastic off and used tempered glass. It is quite durable. It is a bit thicker than most cases and should provide ample protection. As for taking it off an on, it's a bit annoying, but should only take like 10-20 seconds. I'm not sure if it's from me putting my case on and taking it off, but I did notice some of the paint chipping away on the edges where the case would rub up against when putting on or taking off the case. I liked the case overall, but I use one of these
I had the metal plate between the case and the phone. The case was a bit too thick, which made the magnetic mount a bit useless. I ended up switching to the Unicorn Beetle Slim and don't look back.

u/ImFrank · 2 pointsr/motorcyclesroadtrip

A phone mount is worth the money and such an incredibly cheap option compared to only ten years ago when you needed a garmin. Invest in a good case like a life proof or otterbox and get an x grip phone mount by ram ( IF you really want the best set up, also buy a good USB outlet that connect to your battery and have your phone charge while you ride. An open map sucks battery pretty fast.

As far as apps, use motion x gps road, and download any gps tracks your heart desires. Motion x gps allows you to pre download map tracks to any level of detail you like and works great on airplane mode.

Old school is nice and all but is a different experience and makes progress slower and requires much more planning.

I remove the phone's back cover to expose the hot area, especially the area around the rear buttons and camera, and use tape to keep the battery from falling out.

Hold the phone with a phone mount that doesn't cover a lot of the phone's surface area (I use a $5 clone of the Aduro U-Grip, or maybe something like this?, and I bet there are better options). Secure the holder so it doesn't topple over since most car phone holders tend to be front heavy when used as a desk stand and their sticky suction cup mount suck.

Aim something like a small USB fan (or air conditioner flow) at the back of the phone. It is barely warm when running Pokemon GO in 85+F ambient environment.

Engineer here, but I do lots of reports (Bluebeam for PDF, Office 365).

Scaling is a real thing - it's annoying but not show stopping. When you dock/undock certain things are likely to not work 100% correct. (1) if your scaling is difference, the scaling on apps may or may not work right. 99% of the time it's still usable, but 1% of the time it is not. When you dock, your USB ports may not sync up right (I have a Logitch G13 Gaming pad I use for CAD's hit or miss). When you undock, the audio might not work exactly right.

Logging out and immediately back in (not rebooting, takes ~6 seconds if you aren't running programs) fixes all of it. Both on dock and on undock. The bad news is that you have to exit out of everything that is running when you log out. It's a pita for me as I have ~8 chrome windows open with multiple email and web apps. If it's word and Drawboard it's nothing - they will offer to bring you back to where you were when you last exited. I run 2 - 4k, 42" monitors off the dock. It took some fiddling, I'll be honest. I've heard lower res monitors are not so fussy.

The active adapter seems to be somewhat funny - some people need them, some don't.

Accessories: I still prefer a real mouse, and the MX Master is very nice. Also, I have a MS Designer BT keyboard. It matches (mostly) the layout on the typecover and, as such, is very easy to switch back and forth efficiently. Since my 2 monitors are so large, I've taken to putting my SP4 in front of one of them, and the keyboard and mouse in front of the other. Lazy? sure. Efficient? yes. You're probably billing twice what I am (maybe more), every second counts.

Nothing on the market is faster, lighter, and has a digitizer pen. Which reminds me - you're going to want some external batteries if you have to spend all day in court and don't have a power outlet. 6 hours is going to be the outside of what to expect from the battery under your loading conditions. You can extend that by force sleeping more frequently (close the lid - it wakes in a fraction of a second), but your screen time is what it is. You might have 3-4 units in the office you can share and take with you "just in case". Even something small like this: will give you an extra 4+ hours of "on" time if paired with a SP4 charging cable (~$10-12)

So I work Support for Teradek so obviously there is some bias. I can give some insight on the solutions as from my perspective as some of the pro's vs the LiveU.

  1. I can tell you that Teradek boxes give the best quality for the bitrate. We've tuned that processor well.
  2. Teradek devices don't require a service unless you are bonding or want to do simulcasting. The LiveU devices become bricks if you don't purchase their service.
  3. Teradek has better API support. I believe the bottom level LiveU devices support RTMP only.

    Battery requirements would need to be 6-12 volts and I would suggest having a battery that has barrel connection outputs similar to this:

    As another note, if you are going to do switching between cameras, you need to have a seamless switcher, maybe something like this:

I pm'ed vk2zay (Alan Yates) a while ago. Initally, I wanted to go with eneloop batteries + casing. I changed my mind.


(...) I wanted to ask a question which has been @reddit for several times, but there's no exact
defintive: I want to use batteries to power the Lighthouses. (...) Will the AC port still be the same
on the consumer version and do you think this will work fine with the setup I am going for (12V)?


Yes, it is still 12 Volts. It is better to use a regulated supply like these: I've never tested a simple
collection of cells, it may work fine.

u/DutchMasta · 2 pointsr/arizer

That is a 5V battery pack for cell phones and tablets. You need a 12V source to charge the solo.

Something like this:

You could also buy a 12V solar panel and charge the solo that way.

The best vapes for off-the-grid use (except at altitude) are butane powered vapes (Hammer, Lotus, Wispr 2, etc.)

This Kenu mount is the best one you can get. Works perfectly even with a case...

u/dlerium · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

I love Wirecutter but at the same time I feel like they're not as "expert-y" as they should be. They tend to dive into things more than your average consumer, but at the same time they get criticized heavily by enthusiasts for not looking at the right models.

I don't consider myself an enthusiast for cell phone holders, but I've spent enough of my own money to try to figure things out. Kenu in general runs pretty good but its not the best either. For instance I tried their air vent holder. It's a standard holder. Nothing special. In fact with phones going glass (e.g. iPhone XS) and heavier than ever, these holders start to not work out so much. I found a better air vent holder (IMO at least) that uses two arms to grab the air vents. The higher Amazon reviews also help with my confirmation bias to reaffirm that this new vent holder is better.

The same happened with their CD slot holder recommendation. I'm a huge fan of CD slot holders, but the one they recommended was an iOttie one which uses a magnetic mount. That makes it hard if you switch up phones or multiple people switch up their phones being mounted because you need to attach something to your phone. Their previous recommendation had a weird clamp mechanism and it didn't hold the phone well. I went back to my previous personal pick which uses a straight forward spring loaded clamp.

The fact that their picks have disappointed me twice in this field makes me a bit upset. Bottom line is I would recommend those two holders I ended up liking (both the air vent and CD slot holder). Those both are better than the Wirecutter picks IMO. I would have thought a company dedicated to buying and reviewing products would probably be able to find at least the same products I tried if not better ones.

u/Fire2Ice · 2 pointsr/uberdrivers

Driving a 2009 Civic, I picked up a Kenu Airframe to mount to the far left vent. It helped keep my phone from overheating in summer to keep it in front of the ac vent.
My gf has an iOttie dash mount which also works much better than the older dash mounts i'd tried in years past, although i prefer the kenu airframe because it keeps the phone closer to key in things.

Best of luck.

u/shyboot · 2 pointsr/Miata

This works well with my Galaxy S5 on the vent. You can't run the heat through the top vents while using it (I typically just run it on my feet anyways though).

u/brewingcode · 2 pointsr/roadtrip

My tips:

Things to bring

  • Bring a USB Cigarette car charger - Link
  • Cell phone dash holder - Link
  • Headphone cable - Link
    (Listen to your jams while driving)
  • Some snacks (stop at Trader Joe's or similar store)
  • Bottle water
  • Map of the region (Yes we have internet.. but not everywhere)
  • Plastic bags as you acquire them (at the grocery store, gas station, etc.. work great for garbage)

    Tips for Rental Cars

  • Don't get the insurance
  • Don't get the insurance
  • Get there 20-30 minutes early and be nice to the guy/gal. It's going to be a busy time for them and they will have a lot of angry people. Usually if you're nice they will upgrade you to a large vehicle because they have too many reservations and not enough stock on lot.
  • Don't rent from the airport, always go to a lot off site.
  • Be sure to do the walk around, it's as much for you as them.
  • Do not pre-pay gas. Just fill it up to where it was before dropping it off. I always keep an eye out for the closest gas station before I leave.
  • Double check you got all your stuff. Even if you have to make a list. I've found all sorts of stuff in cars that even the detailers missed.

    I travel/road trip quite a bit; If you've got any other questions, please let me know.

I've been using the Kenu Airframe, an overpriced but effective vent clip in my 2016 WRX.

u/cmbeid · 2 pointsr/nexus6

The InfiniApps mounted car holder (CD slot version) doesnt have enough grip. Probably due to the back of the phone not being flat.

I purchased more magnets and will be modding it with more magnets to see if that helps.

u/thezlog · 2 pointsr/iphone

I like my Slyde CD mount way more, doesn't block my vents, instead it blocks my "Compact Disc Player" slot whatever the F that is ;-)

u/chriskmee · 2 pointsr/subaru

The mount I use and love is this:

I have this in my 2014 wrx and love it. It makes it much harder to use your CD player, but since I have never used the cd player once in favor of bluetooth or the AUX jack, that wasn't a problem for me.

The only downside to this mount is that you need a case for your phone. It comes with two metal plates, a normal one, and one with a sticky back. Just put the metal plate in between your phone and a thin case (the thicker the case the less the magnet will work), or use the sticky backed plate and attach directly to the back of any case. I have a galaxy S5 with one of those rubber inside / hard plastic outer shell cases, and I put the plate between the two layers of the case. Another option is to get a cheap case that is easy to take on and off, then stick the metal plate directly to the case and put the case on only when you are using the phone in the car.

edit: If the cd mount is not your style, they have a dashboard version on their website, which uses a gel suction pad that should stick to any dashboard surface.

u/yasec · 2 pointsr/iphone

Spigen slim case

  • Love this case! Thin and keeps me from scratching up the back of the phone.

    Rhino shield

  • Scratch and impact protection, without the fear of shattering. I backed the kickstarter for the original and continue to love their screen protectors. This is my 3rd phone I've used it on.

    Amazon Basics charging cables

  • Not worth paying the apple tax for an extra charging cable. I have one for work, and one for mine and my wife's car.

    InfiniApps CD slot car mount

  • Love this mount. It works perfectly. The magnet keeps the phone stable, and it just pops right on. My last magnet mount (Tetrax) wasn't anywhere near as easy to use.
u/glendonray · 2 pointsr/subaruoutback

Honestly, it's cheaper and easier to use something like a Nexus 7 mounted in your car with the Android Auto app. Works exactly the same, non-invasive, and is easier to update.

Granted it's not as integrated, but it's what I have in my 2011 OB. I bought this CD player magnetic mount that holds my Nexus 7 (2013) fine. I do have T-Mobile so I tether at no extra charge to it from my phone, but this whole setup only cost the price of the mount for me and I love it.

u/sassafrasAtree · 2 pointsr/iphone

Here you go:
I have been using this case for my last 2 iPhones, and a new one is on its way for my 6+. At $11 it is a steal, and allows you to insert the phone in the protective sheath (that has a belt clip) either face up, or face down for more protection. I run with this case, and can't say enough about it. Plus, when I don't need to use the clip, I just use it with the inside case (it is two parts). The case has a kickstand on the inside case part.

My car had no real workable way to mount my iPhone. In my older car I used a vent clip (which was only fair, and ended up mangling my vent). This device is under $20, and is simply awesome! It inserts into your CD slot, and has a powerful magnetic disk/holder on it. It comes with several high powered magnets that go on your phone. One with adhesive, if your phone is naked, or simply place it under your phone case, which is what I did. The magnets are very strong, and I have never had it bounce off. Plus, the base part is adjustable.

I heartily endorse both products. Cheap, effective and work well beyond their price point. Cheers.

Can't recommend this enough, been using it for almost a year, with 6P and my 6 before it. Fits my 6P with no problems, even with a case on, and its easy to stick the phone in it one-handed. Seems secure, hasn't fallen out yet, and we have some really shitty, bumpy roads around here lol.

u/J4mm1nJ03 · 2 pointsr/Android

Sure thing! I have the Koomus CD-Air.

I can't compare it to any other ones as it's the only one I've tried, but it has been working fine for me with the Rhino Shield Bumper and it's been pretty stable. It'll bounce a little bit sometimes, but not enough to really affect the readability of Google Maps/Waze navigation or anything like that. Neither the phone or the cradle have never fallen off either. There are probably cheaper ones but this one has pretty good reviews, so it's what I went with.

I have a 2016 Ford Fusion for reference. It totally disfigured my little CD dust curtain thing if you care about that. I am leasing my car and I don't really plan on ever removing the thing to play a CD, so I'm not too bothered by it.

I did upgrade the cig adapter from the Mpow unit to a double Anker unit so I can charge my phone at the same time.

All of this was super simple to install.

For some reason peripherals plugged into my cig adapter will stay powered on even if the ignition is off, so I have to plug/unplug the socket. I have to plug the lightning cable to keep my phone charged anyways, so this works seamlessly for me. Just hop in, plug in and my phone automatically connects to Bluetooth + my phone is right above my shifter for easy access/swiping.

zero affect on performance, i've been using magnetic holders for years and they dont affect the phone at all. the only thing that might be possible is the NFC, but in the 6P i believe it is in the area with the glass and camera so your shim won't block it (the phone is metal anyways).

If you want to use a magnetic mount, the magnetic plate will most likely block wireless charging, and may cause issues with NFC.

u/HlValadeen · 2 pointsr/oneplus

Depending on your cars layout this magnetic mount is what I've been using for quite a while now. You slide the mount into your AC vent and there's a metal plate you place in your phone case/stick to your phone. All you do is press your phone against the mount and it holds the phone firmly.

There is this one that attaches to your dashboard instead of the AC vent.

I've got this one for my 6 Plus, it works well with the phone in Portrait. I really enjoy it.

>So you don't use a case?

I was using the adopted case, but i don't know how the case you are using compares, so trying it without the case could show if there is a difference there?

>Are phone CPUs inconsistent like regular computers? Ie some same model can tolerate more over clock and some might even get too hot regularly, bad thermal paste job or whatever. Just worried I got a kind of punky one maybe.

I don't know any specifics, but I would think they would be similar because they have similar manufacturing processes, but they should all be able to run at the rated clock speed? If you are overclocking yours that could cause the rebooting problems...

And as far as thermal paste goes, in the ifixit teardown, it looks like they just put a glob down, so yours is probably fine. Especially if your whole phone is getting hot, that means the heat is getting from the cpu to the case

I remember it being cheaper, and the one downside is it doesn't seem to work in all CD slots equally - works great in my car, not at all in my truck. I would avoid this thing tho, it broke within a week.

I found the vent mounts were the same, did not work equally in all vehicles (different vent designs work better than others for a mount).

Edit - found a cheaper one that looks similar to the one I have.

If your head unit has a CD slot that you don't use, then this is awesome. It doesn't mount very well in units with a removable faceplate though.

u/cgjjaf · 2 pointsr/crankshaft

If I could give you my two cents on this, as I just spent the whole last week looking for the less "intrusive" way to mount the raspberry screen with the case that your are talking about.

I tried a magnetic CD mount that I have for my phone and that wouldn't hold the pi, neither the magnets nor attaching it directly with screws to the pi. It probably has to do with the weight of the screen and the mount being for a phone, but also the fact that the back of the pi case comes off very easily, so you are going to have to find a way to secure it better. If you want to try the magnetic mount, I would recommend something like this one:, because you will be able to tighten the part that holds the magnets, so it might be able to support the pi screen.
Another thing, with this mount the pi screen is going to protrude a lot, so it won't be flush to the CD/stereo. In the bright say, you will be able to angle it as you please and it will be closer for use.

I agreed that the 2 DIN slot is the best looking way, but it depends in the car that you own and how important is your stereo to the overall operation of the car. In my case, I can't take the stereo out, as it is linked to the rear view camera and I really like that.

I did a custom install, picking up ideas from other people in the forum.

As for the mount, I've been using the TechMatte MagGrip CD slot mount

u/TheEdgeOfTheInternet · 2 pointsr/nexus5x

I've been using this TechMatte mount since March of this year.

  • I used the larger rectangular plate pictured on the linked Amazon page.
  • I have it installed inside of the back cover of my 5X.
  • I don't have a skin or case on my phone so when my phone is mounted it's direct contact between the phone's standard back cover and the mag mount.
  • Experience has been fantastic. My car has a broken strut in the front end and when I hit a bad pothole it can be quite a jolt and the mount itself will shake quite a bit. Regardless the magnetic connection holds tight and the phone doesn't budge at all.
  • I don't use NFC often, but the few times I've used Android Pay have worked flawlessly with the metal plate installed.


    I also just wanted to throw in as a little bit of an afterthought, after I got the magnetic car mount and installed the plate in my phone, I bought a few of these flat stick-on magnets to stick certain areas my phone tends to spend a lot of time like on the wall next to my bed. Just a little added bonus.

u/fairlydecent · 2 pointsr/Austin
u/bastardpeaches · 2 pointsr/nexus5x

This one: Amazon but probably any mag mount with a vent clip will work. The clip part screws into the round plastic that holds the magnets. You may have to find a longer screw if you want to screw into something thicker.

I'd avoid the ones with the ball-swivel mount for this method. Those sockets or ball sections are molded in, so they'll be harder to attach to a flat surface. I didn't need the adjustability since the panavise bracket already tilts it to the correct angle, and I preferred the super low profile.

u/CommondeNominator · 2 pointsr/Audi

Fair enough, definitely easy and error-proof. Cords just bug me when I'm driving, I don't even have my phone charging unless it's nearly dead. Having a manual trans doesn't help.

I came up with a different solution though.

I used two of these nifty magnetic mounts and put the two rectangular metal plates on two corners of my iPad, placing the mounts in about the center of each of the middle airvents. The result works really well.. Makes it easy to just hand over the iPad to anyone who wants to control the music. Also have an apple music subscription, I think that covers about anything you want to listen to.

I realize this won't work for everyone, but this would work equally as well on any tablet (let's face it if you're driving an Audi you can afford a $150 nexus 7) and with any streaming audio service or just a very well stocked library of songs.

It uses magnets, so you can put it in any orientation easily and quickly. The magnets are strong, so you're phone definitely won't fall off. It's also quick and easy to pop it on or off. You can either put the magnet directly on the phone or inside of a case. I recommend a case so you don't get any sticky residue on the back of your phone. It's also only 7 bucks.

GorillaPod makes one that is suitable for a point and shoot.

Then there's this for only $800 without a head. But it seems like it's exactly what you have in mind.

You might be able to DIY by removing the feet of the tripod and shoving a cell phone magent mount like this and securing with gaffer tape. I have one of these, and the magnet is quite strong. If used at a higher speed I'd be double-sure and use tie-downs on it.

u/mattymck · 2 pointsr/cars

a decent phone mount is what you need. If you have a case on your phone get a magnetic mount. You stick a thin metal plate on the inside of your case so that the magnets of the mount stick to the phone.

this is the one i use.

u/newton_surrey · 2 pointsr/galaxynote4

Bought something like this off aliexpress for like $2. Works great I just stuck a magnet to the outside of my case and it sticks to the vent. Had it for a year, no complaints.

u/bellmanator · 2 pointsr/coupons

I have three of these but not this brand. Two are Logitech and one is Spigen. They all work well but I paid over $30 for the Logitechs. I recommend the Spigen it holds my iPhone 6 in a heavy duty case with no problems, looks and feels better too. It's close to the price of this one.

u/heath_says_wut · 2 pointsr/mazda3

Just don't buy anything that glues to the dash/window (including the Scosche). It will unglue or make a mess from the heat if you're in a hot southern climate. I didn't like the vent mounts either but for the new model you don't have any good dash locations. I went with the spigen. It has a soft rubber surface and won't scratch your vent and the magnetic disc is super thin, I've had a few cheap ones and the difference in quality is huge.

If you don't want to block the vent, get the Proclip, your budget should cover it.

u/ml0v · 2 pointsr/nexus5x

This one is fuuuuuucking awesome. Just got it today, can't recommend enough.

Spigen Magnetic Mount. It's $7 and it holds the phone really well.

Used to use ProClips with my previous 2 phones, but there's no charging holder to use the 6P with a case.

u/pohlinger31 · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

I have this case:

I do however have a small metal plate inside of the case to use with the WizGear car mount:

Not sure if that plate would make any difference.

In my car, the phone is like less than 1 foot from the bluetooth receiver, and with my headphones it's within 2 feet.

u/keanex · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

This is the one that I have. Not sure if there's better, but this has been working well for 4 months now!

u/janelgreo · 2 pointsr/fordfusion

Magnetic Vent Mount hands down.

I used to use the ones that clip to the sides of the phone but after I discovered the magnetic mount, there's nothing better. You can't beat the ease of the magnetic mount.

That being said, for your situation get the ones that protrude that you can adjust. i.e.

u/Gordonpn · 2 pointsr/tasker

I'm using this mount:

I also got a mount for my dad from eBay for really cheap, took a month to receive and works well, but the magnet just isn't as strong.

Tasker actually has a magnetic field state you can use without too much tinkering:

u/Diggity_McG · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

The nice thing about this magnetic mount is that you do not need to attach a metal plate or a case or anything to the phone. The wireless charging magnets inside the phone make it stick to this mount without any issues at all. It's not a wireless charging mount, but I don't care about that to be honest.

This car charger is the one that I got based on my needs. I only have one quick charge device and that's my phone. The other two devices are an iPhone and a Bluetooth speaker. This also comes with a USB C cable for the phone.

Nova launcher for gestures.

No case or screen protector here.

I'm using adhell as an ad blocker. My home network runs pihole so not as big an issue while I'm at home which is most of the time anyway.

I cleaned her up in time for Spring (Ontario, the snow is finally all melting after the recent brutal ice storm), picked up my summer rims and tires yesterday from Allen at Simply Tire in Toronto, and took a bunch of exterior and interior photos for you lovely folks:

u/DarienStegosaur · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

If you are unable or unwilling to stick a magnetic plate to your phone for whatever reason, you can use this.

Pressing the phone into it automatically locks it into the place. Suction cup is ridiculously strong. The arms open wide enough to use with any case (I use the Otterbox Defender with it).

u/hydraSlav · 2 pointsr/AndroidQuestions

I just went through this myself. I used this article:
Their #1 recommendation doesn't do auto-connect, have to press a button each time (they do mention that). I went with their #2 recommendation.

Pay attention to the model number of the #2. The one they recommend is HB01, not HB01 Plus. They mentioned that the Plus has ground loop issues. Some people on Amazon also mentioned it, but not enough. I gave it a try... had to return cause I also had ground loop issue, along with echo on call. The recommended HB01 worked great so far.

For the mount, I got this. Have it mounted on the dashboard, but it mounts to windshield too:

u/DegenerateMotoring · 2 pointsr/ft86

I use a magnetic car mount off amazon. I used a dremel and routed out a little piece of the plastic trim around the head unit and ran the cable down that and through the center console. Then I used a switched obd2 power cable to extend to the OFT cable.

The install is super clean if you're willing to cut into your trim piece a little bit.

u/xchristobal · 2 pointsr/WRX

I had trouble with this at first as well. I like my phone to my right, but every spot in the middle seemed to block something. I ended up using a magnetic vent clip mount that works very well. I put it on the vent to the left of the steering wheel. It doesn't block anything important, and it holds my huge galaxy note 8 perfectly. It has never fallen off, or moved in the slightest. The way I have it mounted only blocks half the vent. No matter what you have to block something lol. Got used to it on the left, and ended up putting my accessport just below where the trunk release button is. Link to phone mount

u/hotmoltengarbage · 2 pointsr/mazda3

Buy a magnetic vent clip! I got one, then bought some for my parents, and they've bought them as gifts for other people. You mount the magnet to your vent (the feet are silicone and leave absolutely no marks) and add a magnetic sheet to your phone (I stuck mine to the inside of my case). When you get in the car, you just smack your phone on the mount. No clamps. No suction cups. No stickiness or goop. It's brilliant.

u/kekspernikai · 1 pointr/iphone

I just use the one I got on sale from Amazon. It was maybe $5-8. My friend has a different one and they're all about the same. It's really strong and I love the setup, but every once in a while it seems I have to rotate the magnet piece clockwise, like it comes loose or something.

If you get one with a ball socket, it may be better, but then you obviously can't hide the iPhone side of the connection.

There's a bunch like this- this is a different brand but identical product.

u/jbone2k · 1 pointr/S7Edge
u/sam_rowlands · 1 pointr/SubaruForester

I got a cheapo one from the local hardware store, just a couple of bucks, the main part is inserted into the air vents and second part is a simple metal disc that I inserted between the phone and case. I've had it a couple of years, it's small and neat and works really well IMHO.

Edit: looks very similar to this, but is unbranded and the mount part is adjustable.

u/levelxplane · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

u/daniengrey · 1 pointr/nexus6

I use this one by Spigen; it easily holds my Nexus 6 even in a case.

u/thatgreekgod · 1 pointr/nexus5x

this has been my favorite case so far:
the button pressing action has been really nice--minimal resistance. the case itself is very customizable as you can use the template with any background or picture.

phone for use in my car:
best FM transmitter i've ever found, and highly reviewed via wirecutter.
i don't actually own this dash mount but man, do i want it. game changer.
this and this make a pretty sweet car charging duo. the cable isn't flimsy, it's affordable, and spec compliant.
if one would be blessed not to need an fm transmitter on their automobile, i really like this

finally, as you start playing around with ROMS (to improve device performance as stock is pretty buggy and not particularly bueno with respect to battery life) you'll inevitably start making backups in twrp. you'll need to. those take up a lot of space. to ameliorate that, i suggest these:,

I've been using a similar one (mine slots into a CD drive rather than air vent) for a little over a year now with both an iPhone 6 and a 6S+ and have seen no problems what so ever with it. I can drive down the highway in my jeep with top off at 70mph and don't worry about it popping off unless I want to take it off. Haven't met a bump that will make it come off yet.

Here is the one I use

u/mchannah88 · 1 pointr/Miata

I took the magnetic mount off of a CD slot phone holder and screwed it in to the cubby. Basically what I've ended up with is a magnet base sticking just a little bit out from the cubby so that I can slap my phone on there and turn it to any angle. I'll try to get a picture tomorrow so it's easier to see. This is the mount I modified:

u/icedcoffeeblack · 1 pointr/XVcrosstrek

Personally, I've updated my LED's (diodedynamics) -- haven't done much else myself.

I don't use a mount for my phone anymore, but I do highly recommend the Tech Matte magnetic one -- that is, if you're not listening to cd's.

It got great reviews on, and I bought it for my previous ride. Great mount, but I do listen to cd's on occasion, so I just keep my phone in the little "cubby" of the center console, and rely on StarLink for navigation rather than Waze on my phone (which is not always the best, but whatever).

Not this one I got it and it's freaking useless. The magnetic disk part twists on, but the range of motion is like 10-15 degrees so it comes off very very easily. You could get it to work with some sugru or glue or something but otherwise, dont waste ur money.

I recently got the Aukey which is a magnetic mount. It's pretty cool, you put a metal plate in between your case and your phone then all you have to do is jump into your car and place it right on the mount. Super easy and hassle free. The only thing I kinda don't like about it is that it mounts on your A/C vent. It's cheap, like $6 so not a huge investment if you want to give it a shot.

u/xdarkpandax · 1 pointr/nexus6
u/AgainstFooIs · 1 pointr/mazda3

Get this, I know you have tried something like this before but I promise the spigen one is superior in every way.

  1. The magnet is much more powerful than the other brands and holds it tight, I'm using it for 9 months already and I never had it slip or fall, I have a 6s and I even put the magnetic disc behind my phone case.
  2. The clip is made from a soft silicon rubber so it will not scratch your vents and stays put without moving.
  3. The magnetic disc is super thin (thiner than other brands) if you put it under the case you won't even notice it.
  4. This is so tiny that it doesn't take any space at all and you never have to take it off as it is basically a 1.5 inch circle, if you are like me and don't like uber like cradles and stuff attached to your windshield or glue residue from the other ones.

    The only downside is that it will block the airflow of the vent somewhat when you have the phone attached.

    My second choice would be the proclip but that one is around $60.

Good topic, and I learned something today as I didn't know a magnet would stick to the G6 without the plate.
I've been using a MOCI car mount for a year and used it with my G4, G5, and now G6 and have not experienced any issues.
Below is a link to the current case I bought, permament MOCI mount, and a travel one. The reason I bought the travel air vent mount is that I wanted to get away from taking my Tom Tom GPS when I travel for work. This allows me to use the magnet so I can use my phone GPS, plus it's a nice kickstand for plane trips.

I was originally against them as I didn't want to stick the metal plate on the back of my phone but since I'm using a case to protect my's hidden.

I really like how easy it is to just touch my phone to the mount and it stays there. Since we are both using the same setup, we can mount either phone in either car. I liked this so much, I picked up a couple of these desktop stands. I've got one on my desk at work and at home. I like having my phone elevated off the desk.

A bonus use with the desktop stand, they have some decent weight and I'm able to use them with my 10.1" tablet (in landscape) without them tipping over.

Edit: Darn it! I didn't realize the desktop stand was available in a gloss black vs the chrome.

Edit 2: You keep a 2nd phone mount in your car for passengers? I've never heard of anyone doing that.

I agree, I've been using this for about 6 months now and love it. However yesterday the rubber parts that grip the air vent pulled out. I was just looking at this thing instead. Same basic idea just taking the air vent out of the equation.

u/Tragic-Hero · 1 pointr/SciontC

I use the other one that uses a 3m tape to mount. Works great.

u/dan1101 · 1 pointr/FocusST

I use this $9 one, it fits well into the cubby to the left of the shifter on my 2013.

My best advice on anything with adhesive pads is don't skip prepping the surface with alcohol and then letting it dry off. Otherwise you won't get good adhesion.

u/iamnotcreativeDET · 1 pointr/cars

I always got the magnetic ones.

I have this one in my Civic

and this one in my ranger.

I just ordered this one to replace the on in my Ranger, as my new phone does iQ wireless charging

the benefit with all of these mounts is I can just toss my phone at my dashboard and it sticks, no arms to adjust, no springloaded mechanisms to go flying, I just put my steel plate between the case of my phone and the phone, and never have any issues.

As far as falling off, the one in my ranger has a pretty stout magnet, and the dashboard vibrates like crazy, I haven't ever had it fall off, and my phone is one of the heavier smart phones on the market.

I thought Spigen made their own magnet car mount thats compatible with their cases. I remember seeing it on Amazon and I was thinking about getting it for my phone since having a mount on windshield can get me pulled over in my area. I'm not sure if it's still available but I will link it here if I come across it.

EDIT: Here's the link. They seem to have a couple selections for car mounts. I hope this helps!

u/xd366 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8
u/Will-In-Cincy · 1 pointr/ram_trucks

Wiz gear or Sipgen. I use Sipgen:

My 2016 has a vent on the left by the steering wheel that’s not adjustable, so that’s where I mount it. Otherwise your phone will weigh down the vent.

u/Exvalidus · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Spigen works for me. Definitely works naked, works very well with a thin case, works acceptably with Spigen Neo Hybrid (very bumpy roads can cause it to fall)

u/fullmoon_coldbrew · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Yes. I particularly enjoy the air vent mounts because I can charge my phone and actually have it charge when it is 100F out because the back is being blasted by AC. I similarly live in swamp ass territory.

Here's the mount I use:

It comes with a few metal plates that you can stick to the inside of your case to increase the magnetism (or directly to the back of your phone, which I do not recommend). As I said before I don't find this necessary (my phone has never slipped off the mount) as the wireless charging coils exhibit enough attraction with the magnets to hold it up.

u/Aceofpwnage · 1 pointr/fordfusion

I used something similar and it didn't adhere well due to the texture of the dash, mine even had a semi-sticky substance in addition to the suction cup. I opted to go for a vent based mount like This And it seems to work out a lot better.

u/yoshiiBeans · 1 pointr/FocusST

I've had this got a few weeks now, works well. It clips onto vent. I had to play around with it to prevent the vent from flopping back and forth. Tiny bit of movement around hard corners

u/papaguan · 1 pointr/ft86

I personally use this magnetic vent mount. I have it on the driver side vent above the head unit. When I have it mounted, I just put my phone in landscape mode so it doesn't block the head unit. I don't have any issues with the mount becoming wiggly and coming off the vent by itself (I've had my car since April and have just under 5000 miles on it).

u/Bleekman1 · 1 pointr/ft86

Just picked this one up today:

Pretty sleek, slides on the AC vent, I put mine on the middle passenger side angled towards me so it's like I'm looking at the radio. Magnets are incredibly strong. didn't fall on the biggest bump in my city or potholes. Black hides with the interior nicely.

u/SoSquidTaste · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

Give the iOttie Easy One Touch 3 a shot.

Folks around these parts and on XDA (haven't searched for the specific thread I remember reading it on but it's around) have confirmed that it fits at least the XL without hitting volume keys. I'm still waiting for mine to arrive before I can confirm either way about the non-XL Pixel.

u/Ganrokh · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I use this car mount and I haven't had any issues with it activating GA.

u/rtechie1 · 1 pointr/nexus6

> So I should just take a wireless charger with me everywhere I go?

And you're not doing that now? Can you just plug your phone into any random wall outlet? NO. You need a USB charger. Just carry around a wireless charger instead of that.

Want a battery? Here you go.

> And how would that work on long car trips?

Qi car charger.

u/aussie_jason · 1 pointr/CherokeeXJ

Ok firstly you don't use a mount to charge your phone, just get an accessory port (cigarette lighter) USB adapter and whatever cable your phone needs , just make sure to get one that is at least 2.1 amp, my current one has 2.1 amp ports and one 2.4 amp port.

As for the mount I currently have - iOttie Easy One Touch 3 (V2.0) Car Mount Universal Phone Holder for iPhone 6s Plus 6s SE Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge S6 Edge Note 5 4- Retail Packaging- Black

I'm trying to get it and the dash to cooperate but the part of my dash where it attaches flexes quite a bit so am contemplating solutions for that outside of just duck taping that panel to the one behind it. If I can't get it to work on the dash I'll just flip it around and put it on the windshield like I had my previous one.

u/wcrisler · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I use the iOttie one touch:

No issues with triggering assistant. I haven't seen it come close, but the phone will not react to the squeeze if you hold it for more than a second or so.

u/ipbonilla · 1 pointr/CX5

I have a 2016.5 in use this iOttie Easy One Touch 3 (V2.0)

I love it, in use it in front of the gear selector, i know is low but the mount is telescopic and give some high stand is you put it right also i use android auto so i like it there for the usb cable.. here's a pic:

u/Why_Is_This_NSFW · 1 pointr/Dashcam

When/if you get the Viofo understand that many are reporting the quality "red back" 3M sticky pad might be a knockoff, so in high heat it could come off. I would suggest getting a standard low profile suction mount, which, depending on the mount, will allow you to rotate the camera should you get pulled over.

The G1W comes with a 360 suction mount, which is great. The A119 is fixed in the front position. The camera lens itself moves, but if you want to rotate it 180 during a road interaction or cop interaction it wont allow that.

The suction cup for my mount on my most recent G1W came off, and after it came off I noticed it was never really put on well to begin with. I used GOOP automotive, which has always worked well for me in the past (it kept my side mirror on for 3 years after I accidentally knocked it off) but it couldn't keep the cup to the mount, so you may want to invest in a better mount.

The slot used for the G1W and A118/A119 is the same. I had an old mount I got on ebay a while back when my mount broke that fit the bill. So, if you want to be able to rotate your A119 toward you for any reason I suggest getting a half decent suction mount. $8 on Amazon should fit the bill. That should work with G1W and A119.

EDIT: As an aside, if you're looking for a good phone mount, for GPS and whatnot, I highly recommend this one. It's awesome. I've burned through like 5 phone mounts until I found this one, and this thing is great. You open up the clasp and just press your phone into it and it locks on. The suction mount is a bit sticky, but it holds great. It has been a godsend for me being a road warrior.

u/TheSarcux · 1 pointr/doordash

I use these in two of my cars, they rock

iOttie Easy One Touch 3 (V2.0)...

u/BGT456 · 1 pointr/ProtectAndServe

I recommend this one. It can use regular suction cup or gel. Gel is 100% secure and will never come off accidentally. Only disadvantage if you need to take it off ever it's difficult. Especially if it has baked on tmin the heat.

Otherwise get a Garmin. They come with a mount. But if it does stay one you can get the phone mount and use it for the Garmin.

u/TheSmokey1 · 1 pointr/JeepRenegade

I've used this with really great success: iOttie Easy One Touch 3 (V2.0) Car Mount Universal Phone Holder for iPhone X 8/8 Plus 7 7 Plus 6s Plus 6s 6 SE Samsung Galaxy S9 S9 Plus S8 Plus S8 Edge S7 S6 Note 8 5

The suction pad is really sticky. It's not a normal suction pad. The sticky part helps it to really cling to whatever it's attached to. I use it on the dash vents on top, though I think I have it attached to one of those large round disks that I stuck first to give the mount something to grab to.

u/pandito_flexo · 1 pointr/Autos

I bought one of these for each of my vehicles. Best mount I've had. I don't like the vent mounts because usually, the vents are in use, which means the phone is either really hot or really cold.

u/shrike1978 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I use the iOttie Easy One Touch 3. It comes with a reusable dash pad with a non-destructive and renewable adhesive for dash mounting, or you can mount straight to the windshield. It has a ton of versatility in mounting location due to the high level of adjustability on the mount itself, and has a easy in, easy out system where you're never fidgeting with clamps...just press your phone against the back and it snaps closed, press the buttons on the back and it locks back open.

The one-touch mounts from iOttie are the best:

There is nothing better. We have multiple models in my household (4 cars). All of them fabulous.

And yes you can mount it backwards, upsidedown, etc. The unit that accepts your phone can be rotated into landscape (that is how I use it, for maps). (mine sits super low like the setting on the far left because our local cops are assholes about things on your dashboard)

u/TTwoTerror · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

Yup, it's this one... I have both of these, but the newer one is obviously better. The new one's clamps sit just shy of the volume button on my regular pixel. The old one covers the volume down button.

u/Socialistfascist · 1 pointr/nexus6

I've had this phone holder for multiple long distance trips and has not failed even once. Easy to use, easy to setup and adjust. Don't lose grip, doesn't jiggle and doesn't slowly lean.

This iottie is pretty popular for a reason, the design is pretty fantastic.

u/decoherent · 1 pointr/MotoX

I've bought two of these mounts for both cars (for both Moto X's). They work disturbingly well. The cradle things work fine and are easily adjustable so they don't hit the buttons, the extensible arm is pretty solid, and the suction cup is made of some crazy unobtanium. Our dashes are just the standard textured vinyl, and the suction cups don't need an adhesive base, they just stick right to the dash. They finally fall off maybe twice a year, and we just stick them back on.

u/robots3humans0 · 1 pointr/iphone
u/bubbabanger · 1 pointr/rav4club

I use this one but on my windshield instead of the dash as some people have reported it's so sticky it can damage the dash. So far I love it and it's been working great.

u/TheStoneAge · 1 pointr/iphone

$40?! I use this one off amazon and it feels almost as fast as a magnetic mount.

u/you_are_breathing · 1 pointr/GalaxyNote8

I have a car CD slot mount for my phone, but with the Otterbox case and the phone weight, the mount sags when I drive, so I need to find another solution, maybe I'll get this to mount it to my dash.

u/InitiatePenguin · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I bought this one when I had the Moto X

With the support of the power cable there's just enough room to also still plug in your aux if you don't have Bluetooth.

u/sicilian504 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

I have one of these and while it does work great as a mount, it sure enough did kill my wireless charging. So I'd avoid that. I tried adjusting where the metal was under my case (UAG Plasma), but I noticed it didn't stay put that well unless the metal was placed in the center of my phone. So unfortunately I don't have wireless charging anymore. Which sucks because I miss just putting my phone down at night in it's cradle and being done with it.

I just got this one, it's a magnetic mount but it's really strong and it clips onto my vents pretty well. The only thing I dont like is that you cant tilt your phone but luckily my vent is in a nice spot. the second link is one i found after, you can tighten the clip on that one and tilt your phone which is nice.

u/PilotZing · 1 pointr/Wrangler

I bought this,

and already had this.

Popped the magnet away from the base, two part epoxy, and some binder paper clips overnight, and it's rock solid. The magnet the kit comes with I found way too weak to hold the phone up and I have a smaller iphone 5S. The wrangler suspension doesn't help. But since I swapped it out for a more powerful magnet, it's amazing. I love it.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/galaxynote5

I got this from Wizgear. Holds pretty well onto my vents, and the magnet is pretty strong to do its job. It has never fallen off for about a year now that I had it.

u/dstaller · 1 pointr/GalaxyS8

Naked naked? The glossy slippery back is tough to hold it's not even so much about magnetic strength but just it's lack of friction. I'd recommend getting a dbrand skin or something similar for the back. Will hold much better and frankly just looks better while not having fingerprints smearing. Also better grip.

I use something similar to THIS with a dbrand skinned S8 and it holds fine. Slips otherwise.

u/akatherder · 1 pointr/DiWHY

There are many better options to both of those. The ones you stuff in the air vents are decent.

I just used double sided tape and affixed a magnetic holder to my dash and stick my phone to that.

The round part from this type of mount:

They come with a small metal plate you slip in your phone case.

u/zombieguts7 · 1 pointr/JeepRenegade

I use this and I like it! My phone stays connected to the magnet while the bottom of my phone rests on the dash, via the vent clip. I'm in Florida, but I don't really have a problem with lack of air flow due to the phone being right in front of the vent. I went this route because I didn't want to stick any adhesive on the dash or window.

u/pbae · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I highly suggest a Ram Mount.

You'll need 3 pieces to make it work for your bike.

First, you'll need a base. I use this one:

But there are other bases available. Check out what Ram has and pick which suits you best.

Next, you'll need an arm that attaches to the base. Ram has 3 different lengths available but they look like this:

And the last thing you'll need is mount. I use the X-Grip which looks like this:

But I use it for my cell phone and not a GPS.

If the X-Mount isn't suitable for your GPS unit, you could see if Ram has a specific bracket for your particular GPS from their website which you could find here:

But if you go that route, you'll need a 4th piece to attach the bracket to and it looks like this:

Hope this helps out and good luck.

BTW, how do you like the GW250? I am very interested in getting one of those.

u/Damean1 · 1 pointr/uberdrivers

I got you fam. Fits my note 10+ in a symmetry otterbox case with room for more if needed.

u/ArmadillofromAZ · 1 pointr/motorcycles

Ram Mount X Grip for iPhone 6s.

I post this to get feedback from riders who used the Ram X Grip with an iPhone 6s (not plus).

According to Amazon reviews, the original x grip interferes with the volume/power buttons of iPhone 6s ( and apparently 6s + too).

Then Ram offered the x grip large apparently to better fit iPhone 6 + and 6s + and other large droids.

I noticed that there are reviews that reported the same previous problem with interference with volume buttons of iPhone 6s even with the newer mount.

Any thoughts? Did it work for you just fine? Or is there another RAM alternative? I don't use a case for my iPhone.

I'm planning on pairing this with the RAM tough claw on an 07 FZ1.

u/EolianPipes · 1 pointr/htcone

I got the Ram Mount X-Grip. I had read a ton of reviews and it seemed that it could hold just about any phone and be sturdy enough over time. It's been about 6 months now and I still love it.

u/Surefire · 1 pointr/ft86

OOH, You are just the person I need!

The actual mounting part: Can you unscrew the ring around that balljoint to put in a different ball joint?

I want to use this instead of something that attaches to the L-hook bracket thing.

None of their compatible phone holders that attach to the actual mounting bracket appeal to me.

Picture because easier.

u/sparksterz · 1 pointr/motorcycles

So my setup is similar to /u/RocketGrouch but a bit more rudimentary. The over view is Ram mount, usb cable, battery tender pigtail to usb connector.

Ram mount parts I used: handlebar mount, connector bracket, phone holder.

I already had a battery tender setup, so figured using this was a no brain-er.

Then I used these cloth braided cables. Didn't know how much length I'd need, but the 6.5 feet was perfect for my use. Allowed me to tuck it around my tank, under my speedo housing shroud and discretely to the handle bars without slack that would risk getting caught.

Certainly not the prettiest solution out there, but I only use this set-up sparingly and store it in my rear bag.

Ram stuff is totally worth the price. Start here and click through. You might get lucky and find they have an exact holder for your device. If not I used the X-Grip both on my HD (LOTS of vibrations) and now in my truck.

u/Ediec · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I use the Sena smh10r. Just dont attach the mic and hide the mic connection behind the padding. And the Ram x has done me good so far.

u/addy8 · 1 pointr/MotoUK

It depends what phone you have, whether you want to charge and use it in the rain, short or long journeys.

quadlock is good if they make a case for your phone otherwise you have to stick a universal adapter to the back of the phone/case. If you stick it to a case it has to be a flat smooth case otherwise it might come off.

Ultimateaddons make some strong waterproof cases, good for long journeys or they do a universal mount and lots of different fittings.

Other universal mount options which you fit to your bike using different RAM mounts are Cliff-Top and RAM X-Grip.

u/PigSlam · 1 pointr/apple

The Ram Monut suctoin cups are beefy. They're about the size of the ones glass guys use to handle huge panes of glass, like for a storefront. You do need to keep the window clean and dry where you attach it, but once you do, it doesn't come off.

Here are the parts I used in my CJ:

[xgrip] (



Altogether, it costs about $40, but that's not a crazy price for an in-car phone mount, and they don't get much tougher than these (though they do make a bigger series that the company I work for use to mount Android tablets to farm equipment)

You may want a longer arm, depending on where you would bolt it, but I have mine in my CJ right behind my steering wheel so I can use it as a speedometer, since my stock speedo is rather inaccurate. There are many other parts available, so hunt around amazon. I'm not sure if they're available anywhere else; this is the only place I've been able to find them.

Good luck!

u/shagzomatic · 1 pointr/motorcycles

Yep. I use the x-grip for my phone, though I use a different base mount. Bought earlier this year and I've done a couple thousand miles with it now -- I really like it.

Except that I have my phone turned sideways, not straight up like that.

Then I just put my headphones, put on my helmet over it, and attach them to the phone when I need GPS and I am good to go.

I use a Vector Offroad bar across the dash

It's just like what it looks like, a secure bar across the dash. Low profile, doesn't get in the way. I then use one of these.

With this,

You can basically customize your dash to fit YOUR exact needs. With all YOUR exact items. It's been nice.

u/JingJang · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

I've tried a few.

I have ended up with the following for three bikes:

The last one attaches to your handlebars, the middle goes in the middle, and the "X-Claw" holds the phone.

I commute ~19 miles a day in an urban environment. I have hopped curbs with this setup successfully and Icebiked over rough uneven icy/snowy terrain.

It probably would not be good enough for single-track or similar.

It has an added benefit in that the design works for almost any smartphone.

The spring in the first one I bought three years ago got soft this summer so I bought the "X-Claw" part to replace it. (which is nice - you fix only the part that isn't working).

Its an awesome setup - I recommend it.

I also got the weather tech floormats. I used to live on a gravel drive way and it was well worth it. Now that I live in the city, they are still really nice. The factory trunk liner is worth it as well. Keeps stuff from sliding around.

Only other accessory I got was a V1 with the remote display. The remote display fits perfectly next to the start button, and the cables can be hidden easily using the power supply in the glove box.

It should be noted that a) RAM stuff is awesome, and b) RAM stuff is modular; the X-Grip is just the phone holding end of a mount and you'll need additional parts to get a full car mount.

It turns out that theres really not, i moved the clutch and brake levers all the way in an attempt to gain a little room for the mount and I probably could have squeezed it in with a Dremel but I really didn't want to do that.

Anyway after fighting the U bolt version for about 45 min i eventually decided that i was just going to mount it on my mirror, which...worked, and honestly worked very well. I tightened the mirror screws about a quarter turn more to ensure tightness and mounted this mount. It works very well. it doesnt vibrate much and its almost at eye level which is really nice.

Im only posting this in case someone was wondering which mount to purchase. I'm not telling to to buy this mount this is only what ive discovered using this. hopefully this gets archived until someone eles has this question.

This Ram mount is a good bet. I have a couple of knock off ones the same design (only about $15 on ebay) that have served me well. I even use them for enduro and my phone hasn't fallen out, so they're pretty secure.

u/daniell61 · 1 pointr/motorcycles

$47 aint that bad dude

or $57

if you want cheap you're not getting a ram mount.

u/2009miles · 1 pointr/PKA

Really happy to see Woody got himself a thumper and will be motovlogging. /u/vanguard_anon you mentioned you were looking for a phone mount and most motovloggers i see swear by these things: RAM mounts. You should definitely give those a look if you haven't gotten a phone mount yet.

Also, you probably already looked into this, but something like this would be a great start for when you do your first motovlog, specially the segment from 9:50 to about 15 minutes, that should help you set up the camera and mic so we can get a good angle and as good quality audio as possible. (keep in mind the helmet is a big variable in all this, some are just better than others when it comes to audio recording)

Really looking forward to those motovlogs, also the guy on the video, Dan, would be a great guest for the podcast and /u/DrChiz should definitly try to get him on.

Hope this helps. ^^if^you^actually^ever^see^this.

Under $300- easy. Sena headset intercom kit.

It goes in her helmet and lets her talk with other riders. But, it also connects to a mobile phone with Bluetooth, so the phone can play music, phone call audio, AND nav directions right into the headset.
Sena 10S motorcycle bluetooth intercom kit $215

If you want to spend a bit more than $300, there's the 10C for $350 which has a built in camera. That can be a safety thing, so if a driver does something bad she has evidence of it.

Note- if she has a Schuberth helmet (expensive European brand) get her the Schuberth bluetooth kit as it integrates into the helmet...

If you want cheaper, try a $45 RAM Cell Phone mount so she can mount her cell phone on her bike handlebars.
This may not be a great gift if she's really new to riding though as the mounted cell phone can be a distraction in some cases...

Ram X mount. This is the handlebar clamp option but you can also get a mount for your brake reservoir or handlebar clamp bolt mount. This is the best mounting system I've ever owned.

Hello folks!

While I wait for my 2018 MT-07 White Intensity model to arrive at my dealership, I am putting together a list of things I would like to change up.

Planned mods:

  • Color: Flat black on tank, rear side panels, plastic under head light and exhaust pipes
  • Black Widow Exhaust 200mm (link)
  • Engine Cover (link)
  • Frame Sliders (link)
  • Integrated Tail Light (link)
  • Radiator Guard Cover (link)
  • Windscreen (link)
  • Phone Holder (link)

    Any tips or suggestions are appreciated!

Here's a universal car mount. I believe it is a bolt on. I don't know if you drive for a living the way you described, but companies can and should accommodate. I would find it bizare if no one had supplied a solution for what you described.

u/Obvious0ne · 1 pointr/Nexus5

I use this handlebar mount on my boat - but I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable with it on a motorcycle.

u/Sneeko · 1 pointr/LGG3

I use the Aduro U-GRIP PLUS and it works like a champ with the G3.

u/Gestapo_with_boba · 1 pointr/LGG3

Don't let the price/appearance fool you.

Copycat models cost half as much but their suction ability is terrible and will fail on you.

This is simple and works with Samsung Note sized phones as well.

The suction power on this device is awesome. I just make sure to wipe dust off the dash with the back of my hand (no oils) before applying.

u/vorin · 1 pointr/MotoX

I have this Aduro U-Grip installed near my rear-view mirror, which I've had for nearly a year.

It stays put, grips hard, and I've clipped it in one-handed, which is nice.

u/i0nicx · 1 pointr/ft86

I use this:
I just have it slapped on the dash next to the instrument cluster. Cheap and works fine, has a little wobble but doesn't bother me.
Edit: works with my iphone6 and nexus 5x no issues

u/je-june · 1 pointr/mazda3

Try mounting one upside down on the windshield?

I have a 2014 with the stock radio (no touchscreen) and I can fit an Aduro U-grip to the left of it (highly recommend, cost me $10 and I've been using it 4 years in 2 cars, have bought for 2 other people.)

I'm not sure if it would work with the touchscreen though since it's taller.

I doubt an Aduro U-GRIP for my Nexus 5, and I think it works pretty well. It seems to hold onto the phone tight, and hold onto the dashboard well.

u/ctskifreak · 1 pointr/nexus5x

Cable: CHOETECH 1.6ft (0.5m) USB-A to USB-C - I have the 1 meter cable as well, but realized I didn't need that much slack.

Charger: PowerGen 4.2Amps / 20W Dual USB Car charger I've had this for a while now - close to 3 years. (I seem to have an older version as my order history says 3.6Amps / 18W.) I bought it when I had my Google Play Edition Galaxy S4 and a company iPhone 4s. It shows as Charging when plugged in - not rapidly but not slowly either. I use DashClock still and it shows as "Charging (AC)" instead of USB, and it keeps up with running Google Music and Play music at the same time on long trips. I don't have the brightness jacked up, about half way, and it will charge will driving long distances.

Case:Spigen Thin Fit Nexus 5x Case I've liked Spigen and I wanted a thin case. I don't have the biggest hands in the world (reason I didn't get a 6p) so I didn't want a case that added a lot of bulk.

Screen Protector: ANSOTT LG Nexus 5X Tempered Glass Screen Protector I rolled the dice as there are a bunch out there and so far it has been fine. I see 2 chips in the protector from what I assume are drops I caused.

Car Mount: Ipow Long Arm Universal Windshield Dashboard Cell Phone Holder This is to replace this mount which I had for about 2 years. The design of this older one used some springs and plastic grooves that the 2 arms slid on and it eventually wore and cracked. The only problem with the new one is that due to the power and volume buttons on side, it has to be mounted in one spot to not hit any of the buttons. The grip is strong and the arm is nice as it's closer to me than the old one - I don't have to reach as far. This plus the new Android Auto update should make trips nicer.

u/Peteostro · 1 pointr/Vive

Im thinking you can pretty much use any recent battery pack that has a USB port on it. Might need to be 5v out put I think
Anker is a good brand

Here's a Reddit post about it

Update: that post says they are 12volts. So you need a pack that can do 12volts

Looks like people are using this one

u/MolassesBrown · 1 pointr/Filmmakers

Solid, thank you!
Do you know if I can use the regular m4/3 metabones adapter with the bmpcc? I know there is a specific one for the bmpcc but right now I only have the regular adapter for my gh4.

Also I was thinking of this for a battery solution:

Is there something else you'd recommend?

u/HybridCamRev · 1 pointr/Filmmakers

> Do you know if I can use the regular m4/3 metabones adapter with the bmpcc?

Yes, it will work. The major difference between the two is that the BMPCC-specific adapter has a 0.58x focal length reduction.

> I was thinking of [this] ( for a battery solution. Is there something else you'd recommend?

Yes, instead I recommend a [$19.80 LED NPF-Series Battery Plate adapter] ( with a couple of [$8.14 Sony NP-F550 batteries] ( (and a [$13.99 dual charger] ( [Referral Links]. [Here] ( is what it looks like on my BMPCC with a pistol grip.

If you do end up buying the camera, you may want to subscribe to /r/bmpcc

There are a lot of knowledgeable folks there who can help you get the most out of your new camera.

Again, hope this is helpful!

POWER BANK. Needs 12V DC output. And the size of this one or less
Couldn't find many options, that or this is all I could find

It's gonna go in my heated jacket gadget this winter so it really can't be over 6" and has to have the 12V DC plug port.

u/dudenow12 · 1 pointr/craftymighty

I think something like this would work since it has a 12v dc output port and would charge the mighty. I don't know that other USB battery packs output the 12v that the Mighty requires to charge.

The dimensions look like its slighty smaller than the Mighty itself.

u/afrotec · 1 pointr/Surface

What external battery do you have? You need one that's capable of 12v output. USB 3.0 standard is 5.0v I believe, so any external battery capable of 12v output will probably use a barrel-type plug for power output, like this battery:

So you'd need a SP4 to barrel connector cable + a 12v output external battery. Or an S3 that charges using conventional usb standard connectors

u/dtabitt · 1 pointr/bmpcc

This and a dummy battery. Works great so far and I had them because they worked for the pocket too.

u/ProMacGyver · 1 pointr/HoverJunkers

Hello Devlin,

There are many options for batteries to use with lighthouse.


Smaller battery Options:

Amazon: Anker 2nd Gen Astro Pro2 20000mAh


Amazon: XTPower® MP-23000 Power Bank

These two battery options have everything you need to plug right into the lighthouse basestations in the box. And should last about 6 ish hours. They no longer sell the exact unit that we have which is the "XTPower MP-10000" which was the cheapest option.


Large Battery Options:

1: V Lock Battery:


2: Anton Bauer Battery:

And you will also need:

These are the two larger batteries we use for lighthouses when we need them mobile. The V-Lock batteries are the best because they normally have D-Tap connections built into them. However I have not found a nice battery mount that attaches to a lightstand for V-Lock batteries. But if you buy Anton Bauer batteries you can get a mount that goes directly on a light stand easily with D-tap ports as listed above. However it is the D-Tap connection that we need in the end.


D-Tap to Lighthouse Cable:

Amazon: D-Tap to Lighthouse Cable:

This is the cable we specifically got because it is the cheapest and is long enough to reach the batteries with the mounts we have on the light stand.

You can create your own custom setup of batteries as long as there is a D-tap connector that comes off the battery/batteries. I can post links to another idea/cheaper idea for a D-tap solution.

u/Harumpty · 1 pointr/bmpcc

Sorry, late for the party...

I will soon be getting the BMPCC 4K and thought I'd ask about my current power solution for my Canons. I've been using the following combo for the past 4 years and have had zero problems. The unit has a switchable output of 12v and with the dummy battery it works least for Canon bodies. Anyone see any reason it shouldn't work for the BMPCC 4K?

u/mattmaz · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

While it sounds like you have the batter already, there are batteries with 9-12v along with 5v.

I have used that to power a PI2 and a 5inch 9v screen.

u/Tele72Dlx · 1 pointr/diypedals

I got you Fam

Selectable 9v/12v. Remember to flip polarity though (using one of the Voodoo Lab cables with the white end or similar)

Guess you could even use the USB 5v outputs for board-mounted LEDs ?

u/FlyingPhotog · 1 pointr/photography

I wondered why I hadn't seen an external pack like people use for their smartphones, so I googled. Turns out someone has found a way to use a specific external Lithium Ion pack with a "dummy" battery on a cord. Here you go:

Should give you significant uptime compared to a grip. Here's the video I found it from:

u/vk2zay · 1 pointr/Vive

I've had good experiences with these off-the-shelf packs:

This one isn't regulated but works fairly well with some loss of sync range as the battery depletes:

Many similar ones are suitable. Better to use regulated ones than simple "12V" battery packs, which are typically 12.3-12.6 V fully charged and drop off as the batteries discharge. The slightly higher voltage is fine, as is the drop towards 9 Volt, but their management ICs will normally cut off the load before the cells might be damaged by excessive discharge. The low voltage cut-out in the base will turn off the base station before it might get confused by too low a voltage if the battery pack is unprotected - such as with primary cell holders.

u/edge11 · 1 pointr/Filmmakers

You don't have to go that expensive Plus based on his budget I don't think op needs to. You can get away with using this guy

u/DarkStar851 · 1 pointr/trees

I'm not sure what kind of cable you'd need, but you want a portable battery pack of [email protected] (or more). This one seems to be appropriate.

There's also a car charger accessory from Firefly, if that's useful to you.

The FF2 can charge via USB, so any battery pack will work, just get a silicone wristband to hold the unit in the cradle. It performs significantly better than the FF as well.

u/jmenendezn · 1 pointr/AskElectronics

Do you think this type of usb power bank will work?

It can be regulated to 9v and 12v

u/rossenp · 1 pointr/Nexus5

here's what I've been happily using & recommend:

  • this car charger. It will fully charge your phone while using navi with the screen-on at all times, if the charging cable is plugged in the NA-marked port and no other device is being charged at the same time. I've been wanting to experiment with a charging-only cable such as this one to see if it would help with better/faster charging and the possibility of charging a second device at the same time.

  • kenu airframe car mount. very simple, small, well-made, and works pretty much universally on all types of air vents. i frequently rent a variety of cars and have yet to stumble upon a model where the kenu wouldn't mount properly. holds the phone perfectly and takes a couple of seconds to mount.

    as far as actual navi, GMaps has been unreliable for me during the last couple of roadtrips. I only used it because I knew I had a backup (standalone navi). it would crash silently and I'd have to pull over, and set it up again (and hope there is data/coverage because if there isn't, i'm SOL). this happened at least 4 times during a 6-7 hour drive. for this reason, have either a standalone navi backup, or another app that you can rely on, such as nav free or CoPilot, both of which i've heard good things about.

    have fun!
u/walkingliberty · 1 pointr/Austin

If you won't want to use the suction cup mounts and your vents aren't broken like mine, this looks promising, too:

u/zobx · 1 pointr/XVcrosstrek

I've got this one:

I started with one of the CD slot mounts but it blocked the hazard light button, which I wasn't a fan of. This I have mounted to the vent next to the steering wheel so it's close, and the phone gets to cool down when the AC is on! (Not so good in winter with heat on.) It works very well overall... easy to use, reach, handle. Small enough to take with me if I switch cars, and rather durable. Been using it two years now.

u/Sad_Ballsack · 1 pointr/Lyft

I absolutely love the Kenu Airframe. It clips into an airvent and stays put. I've had mine for about a year and it still works just as well as the first day I got it. Plus, at $25, it's relatively inexpensive in comparison with some of the other mount choices.

u/Law_Doge · 1 pointr/subaru

Kenu Airframe. It attaches to the vent below the nav/radio. I've dealt with a lot of phone mounts, and this one is by far the best.

u/theprimeministr · 1 pointr/FocusST

There are plenty of options for mounting your phone, but I suppose it's a matter of what your preferences are (e.g., vent mount, CD slot mount, dash mount, other) in terms of obstructing certain things in the car.

I personally use a Kenu Airframe vent clip mount. I mount it on the left center vent which offers great visibility. I personally don't mind vent clip mounts as the A/C keeps my phone cool during the Summer months and it doesn't interfere with the nav display at all and is quite discreet.

If you're okay with using a case and/or sticking a magnet on your phone, then you could also consider the KUDA mount which offers a fairly OEM appearance.

u/djsubtronic · 1 pointr/FordFocus

Why don't you just close the vent on which you mount the phone?

I use one of these:

They are small, snug, and hold the phone decently enough and you don't have to worry about any long-term damage to the CD slot.

u/rand_a · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

Hands down the best is the Keanu airframe. Been using one for years. Actually just bought a second one since my old one was too small to fit the pixel xl. No magnets and no bulk and no fuss.

u/Lobstrich · 1 pointr/FocusST

I use the Kenu Airframe You should check out their video. Really great product, even better than I expected. Works with any phone, and even a tom tom, if you remove the bracket first.

u/AlucardZero · 1 pointr/MotoX

I don't believe in suction cups as they leave marks on the dash/windshield that say "expensive electronics probably inside! rob me!".

This is good, but the air vent holder did NOT easily fit on my air vents. I sold it to a friend.

I got this instead which does fit on my air vents. You can't swivel it from side to side but other than that I am happy with it.

u/synackbar · 1 pointr/Audi

I'm very satisfied with this phone mount: link

u/travmak · 1 pointr/Volkswagen

do not! EVER! use a suction cup on the dash, even one of the sticky kind that will hold to a textured surface. The dash is soft and I found out the hard way that the suction cup will deform the dash. I had one in the prius that worked great because even tough the dash was textured, it was solid plastic.

I use this vent clip in the vent to the right of the steering wheel.

u/smallbag · 1 pointr/mazda3

I used to not like vent mounts either but after going through dozens of other mounts I finally gave it a fair shot and like them much better than I thought I would. Makes it very close to you so you can see and adjust things easier. This is what I use:

u/impecuniousyouth · 1 pointr/AskWomen
  • my mini keychain flashlight is one of the best things and very helpful for when I'm trying to key into my house when it's dark outside or looking for things in the car or really whatever. It's really bright and sturdy and you can replace the batteries.

  • phone holder thing for the car gets used literally every time I drive, two years later is still gripping onto the vent like a champ, it fits my iphone 6s but also my dad's galaxy and my brother's note, all in all a really good way to be able to see music and google maps within reach and minimize distraction.
  • I like these swing bottles that I originally bought to put my mouthwash in so it looked ~nicer~ in my bathroom, but after I ran out of mouthwash and didn't like that method, I rinsed it out and use them to hold water in beside my bed or keep water cold in the fridge, stuff like that.

If you plan to stick to sub-5" devices, the Kenu Airframe is a good choice. If you plan to upsize to the Pro range, choose the larger model I have the larger one, and it's been rock solid yet easy to put my phone in and take it out one-handed.

You could try a magnetic mount that goes into the CD player of your car (

u/nilleo · 1 pointr/Nexus5

The magnetic mount that comes with this one holds an N5 quite well. It holds mine much better without a case, but it still manages to hold it even with my Ringke slim case on.

The little magnetic disc has a ball style mount receptacle like some GPS mounts so you can remove it and use it with another mount style that doesn't take up your CD slot.

u/ponyboy3 · 1 pointr/Toyota

u/whileinchina · 1 pointr/Android

i think mountek is biting off of these guys. I got these a while back and they work really well.

u/chadcf · 1 pointr/mazda3

I put this one in:

It's ok. It works for me because I don't use CD's, so I don't care that the cd slot is take up. It doesn't bounce around too much and holds the phone securely. The negatives are that the phone will be mounted down very low so if you want it for nav it's not easy to see, and it is mostly only an option if you use a case with your phone (unless you use a Nexus 5) because you have to put a metal plate on the case to have it stick. I mean you could put the metal plate on your phone but who wants to do that...

The alternatives aren't too great either. Vent clip ones are not bad and keep things up high closer to your line of sight, but they they also block a vent. Suction cup ones are iffy and I've had very few of them that didn't fall off when it gets either cold or hot. Plus they block part of your view out the windshield. You can get some neat ones with an articulating arm to mount your phone too, but then you have to drill holes somewhere to mount it.

These ones look kind of neat, but also look like they take up some passenger knee space and they're quite expensive (over $100 when you have everything you need).

The last option would be one of these. I actually got my dad one of these to mount his tablet in his car and they work fantastically, however in the 3 the cup holders are so far back I'm not sure how well it would work. Plus, you lose a cup holder when this is installed...

This one looks like it might be a good option though. Clips into the dash seam. It's just a mount plate though, you still need an actual holder to put on it (they sell them, or you can use a suction cup or adhesive tape mount). My only issue with that would be that it's kinda out there and ugly. My cd slot holder is at least not very visible or in the way when not in use.

u/afr33sl4ve · 1 pointr/OSHA

The light had just turned green, and had to wait for a good angle. But, you're right. My phone is always in the CD holster.

u/xipseki · 1 pointr/subaru

I use a CD slot phone holder. It does not block the top display, but it does block the stereo screen. For me that is not an issue since I rarely use my stereo screen, I usually use the steering wheel controls to answer calls, change songs, increase volume, etc. Only time it is a hassle is if you want to see the rear view camera, but you could get by just going old school and use mirrors.

Side note: I have a Galaxy Note 4 with a case and this holds it very securely.

Here is the holder:

u/cardboardcowboy · 1 pointr/galaxynote4

I've had this one for 4 months or so and I absolutely love it.

The pieces that actually hold the phone aren't super bulky, which I like, so it maintains a relatively stealthy visual (about as much as you can get with this type of holder anyways).

I also like that it doesn't fully cover up a vent which should be nice as it starts to get hotter in the next month or so.

Koomus CD-Air CD Slot Smartphone Car Mount Holder Cradle for All iPhone and Android Devices

u/DisconnectedChild · 1 pointr/GalaxyS7

Bear in mind that there may be differences in terms of how well one mount will fit in one car stereo, versus how it will fit in yours. (Obvious, I know, but felt I should mention it anyway).

That said, I've been using this one in my Nissan Rogue with my Galaxy S7 Edge and it's worked very well for me:

It's quite easy to insert the phone into the arms of the mount, the mount has held onto the phone very well, and it's simple to remove the phone from the mount. It also leaves the power and volume buttons accessible when the phone is in the dock.

I've been very happy with it overall.

If you have a CD tray you don't use, get the Koomus CD mount,

the thing is great! fits my 6P with a case, grip is tight on the phone, but easily removed. it fits very securely into your cd tray, not at all worried about it falling out of a big bump or something. and it doesn't block your air vents. ;). Of course, you can't use your cd player anymore but I use AUX so it doesn't matter. I prefer these to magnet ones since no one else can use the mount in your car but you.

u/diabolical_furby · 1 pointr/mazda

Check out the CD player mounts as well, I have one and with the position of the CD player in this car right above the infotainment center, it's amazing. See for yourself! (Sorry no phone in the picture because I was using it to take the picture lol) In landscape mode it doesn't cover any of the touchscreen, as you can see in the picture, besides the Pandora button, and who uses that anyway? :) Besides, there's still room under the mount to reach under and press it anyway, you just can't see it.

Also, the top part of that mount retracts and grips the phone, so even if you have a larger phone it won't cover any of the touchscreen. It's sturdy enough for the phablets too, I've used it with my Nexus 6P and it works amazingly. It does rotate around as well if you prefer the portrait mode.

I just built one of these last night. I took an old begginer set driver and cut the head off the shaft. I then took one of these and cut the arm from the base. I then epoxied it to the end of the grip. Easy to transport and should be sturdy enough. I can always add more epoxy. I'll upload a pic of the finished product when I get home.

Currently using

It stays in place very well with the included magnetic mount that I put in my case. Makes good use of the CD player since I never use mine but if you do it won't work.

The Kenu Airframe+ is pricey ($30) but came highly recommended & after 2 weeks, love it. I promptly threw out my previous holder attached to the windshield - it is sooooo much nicer to have yr phone to the right of your wheel without having to reach!

u/fammoney · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

Thanks for #1! I tried going back to my Mountek nGroove but traded it. While it held the 6P with the Spigen case linked above I could not trust it as the 6P was too tall to make me feel comfortable using it.

Right now I'm back to using my Kenu Airframe. This holds the 6P in case with no problems.

u/austinanimal · 1 pointr/Austin

I love my Kenu Airframe. They do wear out eventually, but they seem to endlessly replace them for free.

u/PlaidDragon · 1 pointr/galaxynote5

I recommend this

I have the non plus version, but since you have the Otterbox, you'll need the extra extension. The non-plus version will fit the Note 5 without a case.

u/wsoul13 · 1 pointr/TheSilphRoad

Alright I just Solo'd an Alakazam right now he had Confusion (rated Challenging by gamepress) and Future Sight (rated Easy by gamepress) and it took me 4 attempts to get it. I went with lv30 Houndoom (S/FP), lv32 Houndoom (S/C), lv32 Scizor, lv30 Mewtwo, lv32 Tyranitar (B/C), lv30 Tyranitar (B/SE). I kept timing out as you can tell based on my unoptimized squad. Some issues were hitting me like timing out with 5 seconds left. What I discovered with this little experiment of mine was a nice little hack to improving your phone performace underpressure. I have this car mount and it's on your air vent. What I did was turn my car on and placed my Airconditioner on low and removed my phone case, shut all my vents off except for where my phone was mounted. It worked I beat Alakazam with 0 seconds left.

So would I recommend challenging any Tier 3 higher than Intermediate on Gamepress ratings? No. Don't do it. There may be exception if you have a tracker and know the moveset and have an optimized team for that moveset but it took me too much time and resources to solo that Alakazam and I regret doing it to be honest though I am stoked to have won.

Something of a lesson/cool story for you guys.

EDIT: The Houndooms were caught in the wild. So look out for lv35 15 attack houndours/houndooms on clear or foggy days.

EDIT: I'm also updating the guide with some performance hacks

u/Des88 · 1 pointr/SonyXperia

Yeah, this is the one I've been using specifically so it's the only one I can really vouch for:
The phone doesn't slide and the holder won't rotate by itself either. Could probably get away with a cheaper one though.

u/erikrichter8 · 1 pointr/mazda

I also use my phone for Waze since the NAV is crippled with no real-time traffic. The Kenu Airframe ( works great right under the main screen.

u/coco_not · 1 pointr/Moto_Z

Kenu Airframe+ I use this since MXPE and now ZPlay, no issue with the width, not sure about the depth with a large mod attached --

u/redmongrel · 1 pointr/SubaruForester

Ditto, cheap, easy, solid, and goes with you anywhere. I almost bought one of those steel setups before realizing what a mistake it would have been considering that you can't use the big chunky mount on the back of your phone when you're renting a car elsewhere.

Don't get the ones with four sides, you just need two. Like so

The $5 section at Target has a similar style.

u/ferndom_ · 1 pointr/galaxynote4

I use the Kenu Airframe+ mount. It's a bit expensive, but it is very sturdy and has a minimalistic design. It clips on to your air vents.

u/SQLBek · 1 pointr/GalaxyNote8

Kenu Airframe + for me.

I travel and am in rental cars every now and then, so being small & portable is also a nice bonus for my needs.

u/quacktards · 1 pointr/videos

She uses the Airframe Plus. I'm pretty sure it is spec'd for the S7. They also have the regular Airframe which holds phones up to 5".

u/Clawz114 · 1 pointr/nexus6

Anyone tried the Kenu Airframe + with the Nexus 6?

I'm currently using the regular Kenu Airframe with my Nexus 4 and I really like it. I was planning on getting the plus version when I get my Nexus 6.

u/billj457 · 1 pointr/nexus6

I use a Kenu Airframe+, works great.

u/SkiRek · 1 pointr/Minneapolis

Good on ya. Thanks for reading. Stay safe out there. Here are some good docks that aren't expensive if you're looking to buy.

One with a suction cup
One that fits on a vent

u/harrisonboll · 1 pointr/Chevy

I have a 2014 Equinox and I bought this last week, I just installed it this morning. It works well with my IPhone 7 but there isn't a great spot for it due to the vent orientations. I have it up high on the center vent right now and it works okay. They also sell a version the auctions to the window, that way it can go anywhere.

u/BrownEye1187 · 1 pointr/nexus5x

It uses your vents to hold the mount, and it magnetically holds your phone. It comes with a flat metal piece that will stick to your phone or case, and allow the magnetic suction to work properly.

I put the metal disc in a cheap case that I bought and just put my Nexus 5X in the case when I want to use the mount.

u/Zlatty · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

I've been using one of these vent magnet things and it has been pretty reliable.

u/q-w-e-r-t- · 1 pointr/lgg4

It fits, but it's close.

I switched to a $7 techmatte magnet vent mount. I keep the metal tab between the case and phone. My phone has never fallen off yet, even with a case on and rough roads.

They have a CD slot version for $10

u/Tim_Buk2 · 1 pointr/mercedes_benz

It really is the most logical and elegant place if one uses one's phone for google maps and/ or waze.

For the last years, I have been using a variety of magnetic mounts and they are good in all cars I have used except the W205.

I have a thin, flat magnetic sticker plate on the back of my black iphone. Almost invisible. The magnetic attraction grip with the mount in the car is excellent and is quick and easy to put on and off.

It is almost unbelievable that Mercedes themselves have not integrated a series of hidden magnetic mounts in the cabin.

The person who markets an elegant solution for my problem is going to make a mint.

u/cronson · 1 pointr/CarAV

I just use one of these so my phone is displaying all that anyway. I never really mess with displaying song info. It's just a single LCD line display so it's not ideal for scolding all that data.

u/TheDreadedPlague · 1 pointr/Jeep

I bought this and I absolutely love it.

u/wags_259 · 1 pointr/subaru

17 sti with a vent phone holder too.

that clip to be exact; works fine. I do find that spinning the clip every now and then helps with holding better

u/Pandarocious · 1 pointr/subaru

I use a magnetic phone mount that sits in a vent. It's quite sturdy. It comes with 3 magnets, 2 with a sticky side and 1 without. Just slip one of the magnets between your phone case and it's ready to go.

u/DisgruntledNut · 1 pointr/cars

For the radar detector, consider hardwiring it (not difficult) and mounting it below the mirror with a mirror mount.

For the cell phone, you can use a magnetic vent clip to put the phone on one of your A/C vents

u/Erased-Improved · 1 pointr/AskMen

This phone holder for your car. Have had it since March and have had 0 issues with it. I drive a pickup as well, so it gets pretty bumpy, and this thing is solid.

So bad ass to just take my phone out of my pocket and stick it there.

I appreciate the suggestion! If anyone else is interested, it’s only $8 on Amazon.

Ahh fellow wazer! I gotta say though, I would totally settle for Apple maps or Google maps with the car integration instead.

In my 98 I use a vent mount with a magnetic end. Amazon Link . Basically my vents are stiff and are able to hold my phone up magnetically. Magnets on the vent, metal plate between my iPhone and case. Not sure, though, if the newer circular vents can do the same.

Not really a cradle but they do offer that option.

WizGear Universal Air Vent Magnetic Car Mount Holder with Fast Swift-Snap Technology for Smartphones and Mini Tablets, Black

I stuck the metal plate inside the ZeroLemon cover and you don't even notice it.

u/Notch__Johnson · 1 pointr/genesiscoupe

Got one of these that I mount in the vent by the A pillar usually. If I'm using Google maps for Navi the A/C keeps the phone cool. It's easy to move around and I also use it in my work vehicle. You need a phone case to put the little metal plates in though.

I used the CD slot type in my last car but it messed the slot up so I didn't like the way it looked when it was not in the cradle. Plus I have a double DIN Pioneer now with no exposed CD slot.

u/mf-dave · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

I got myself This holds the phone perfectly, lots of shit roads around me and has never slid off. Easy placing and removal.

u/bigbillpdx · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

The magnetic mounts are the way to go. I use this variant in two cars and they work great in both for both my 6p and my wife's 5x:

Thanks! We use these magnetic mounts and they've been great

I use this, it blocks a vent though. I can take a picture if you like.

u/professor_doom · 1 pointr/Connecticut

You need this thing . It's saved my ass many times and is super easy to use

u/PSX_ · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

I use a phone vent mount that just slides over a vent fin, and I mounted stuck the sticky side of the metal backing to the back of the AP, it never budges unless im messing with it.

Same model as this.

u/floop14 · 0 pointsr/motorcycles
Bought this same setup last week. The small universal X-grip (UN7) works for the the average smart phone, yours included. I have the galaxy S5. A thick case like an otter box might be too big. I believe the item description gives the maximum and minimum measurements for phone height and width.

u/jdbrew · 0 pointsr/HondaElement

I have the Koomus Magnetos cd slot mounted magnetic hokder. I really like this because my wife has the dash mounted Magnetos holder in her car, and both my parents have a Magnetos holder in their cars... so I can just in any car in the family, and the Magnetic plate I have in my phone case allows me to place their phone on their mount without needing to resize or change anything.

u/berny227 · 0 pointsr/Audi

Looks good, but pricey. I got this for my A3. Works great, is relatively low-key (aesthetically) and the price is awesome.

u/KCintheOC · 0 pointsr/Nexus6P

I purchased the Spigen magnetic air vent mount and it is the best car mount I've ever had. I've had dash stick-ons, CD player inserts, but this one takes the cake and its the cheapest of them all at 8 bucks. Nothing to open or release, just stick your phone on and pull it off. It's super secure and doesn't wobble at all. I haven't tried a crash test yet but it certainly holds up to hard breaking just fine.
