If you’re looking for the best Car Phone Mount, I’ve got a surprise for you. There isn’t one. Countless options exist, and choosing the right one might not be the most straightforward task. If you wish to explore more on this topic, read this all-inclusive guide till the end.
There are four types of phone mounts available on the market:
- Automatic – Uses an IR proximity sensor, which adjusts its grip on the phone to secure it.
- Spring – Works with clamps that hug the phone; some even utilize gravity to lock the phone in. These require a more hands-on approach.
- Magnetic – Works by installing a metal plate on the phone, then magnets inside the mount will hold it firmly. You can install the plate on a case or inside it if thin enough.
- MagSafe – Attaches to the MagSafe array on newer iPhones, starting from series 12; or any phone with a MagSafe Sticker installed.
Options #3 and #4 are easier to use, more minor in size, and, in most cases, are of better build quality.
Vent, Dashboard, or Windshield?
Plenty of options exist if you have traditional rectangular vents in your vehicle. A vent mount can offer a low, unobstructed view of your device. This type of mount usually isn’t compatible with smaller or circular vents.
Dashboard and windshield mounts offer more versatility in terms of installation spots. They attach to the surface area via a VHB adhesive or suction base. Choose the installation spot carefully.
What about Wireless Charging Mounts?
Mounts that have Qi wireless charging built-in are becoming increasingly common. It’s an excellent way to skip the cable fuss and keep your phone battery up throughout the day. Most of them are compatible with both iPhone and Android devices.
Our role in all of this:
We’ve been in the industry for a while now and can confidently say that we’re experts in the field – providing simple-to-use and elegantly designed products. With that in mind, let me introduce you to our specialized mount lineup.
The Car Dashboard Mount
Built with cutting-edge technology, it incorporates eight small neodymium magnets, enabling you to secure your smartphone like never before. Do not be fooled by its small size cause our Car Dashboard Mount can comfortably hold any device weighing up to 0.8 lbs.
Find the perfect spot on the dashboard, then let the NANO adhesive sit for a few hours. If you decide to change its location, later on, an extra sticky is included just for that!
After you’ve found a spot for the mount, install the metal plate on your phone.
*Remember, if you use wireless charging, ensure the plate isn’t on or near the charging coil.*
The most common questions about this type of mount are, “can it vanish my files, affect my GPS or warp my screen?”. In brief, no.
Smartphones today are of top-notch quality, and the magnets inside any magnetic mount are just not up to the intensity to affect the workings of a phone. Only big and powerful magnets can have an impact, but not these tiny ones.
You can eliminate any worry regarding this topic, as magnetic mounts are some of the best essentials you can get your hands on!
The Wireless Mount 2.0
This might be perfect for you if you’re looking for a wireless charging mount. It’s based on MagSafe technology and has a 15W charging speed. But what if you don’t have MagSafe inside your phone?
Well, as long as your device supports Qi-based wireless charging, then our MagSafe Sticker will be able to make it compatible.
The standard version attaches to the air vent, but if you’d like to install it on the dashboard or windshield, the Suction Cup Holder comes into play.
Do not mistake this for an independent mount, as the Suction Cup Holder is purely an extension piece for the Wireless Mount 2.0. If blocking your air vent is of no bother, you can skip getting this handy extra.
Magnetic mounts are simple but one of the top-ranking options for any car interior. If you’ve decided to place your faith in us, click here to activate a sneaky 10% off coupon on your next (or first) CARMOUNT order.
