    Solid Mount for CD Drive

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Hold, Product construction, Safety
    Cons mentioned:
    Charging, Small

    The iOttie CD Mount is made to slide into an EMPTY CD slot in your car in order to be able to utilize a good spot for your cell phone while driving. This can be hit or miss depending on the vehicle that you drive. The iOttie CD mount comes with the mount itself, a small metal plate, a large metal plate, clear plastic protective sheet, black adapter clip, and instructions/warranty (1-year). DISCLAIMER: I used this product in a 2017 Nissan Frontier truck. I used both a Samsung Galaxy S9+ and a Samsung FOLD for testing purposes. PROS: ----------- * The design is very simple and easy to use and install * Extremely durable build. High-quality materials, feels solid, does not have a cheap feel * Magnets hold device in place extremely well in portrait orientation * Ability to angle device to the perfect viewing angle in any direction is great * The design will allow, in most cases, your phone to not block any air vents * If the initial installation fit is too loose, the small adapter piece will cause the middle "wing" to push up further to keep in place better. * The Samsung FOLD has a thick metal bar/hinge down the center of the back of the phone. I was able to adjust the FOLD to any angle as the magnets attached nicely to the very center of the back of the phone. It worked great in both landscape and portrait orientation AND no metal plates have to be used. This was a huge plus. Keep in mind that I have no case on the FOLD and it's heavy for a hand-held device. CONS: ----------- * Depending on your vehicle, your phone may or may not cover something important (A/C controls or stereo). Where you put the metal plate will also impact viewing area - if the metal plate is on the bottom of your phone, only the area above the CD player slot is impacted. However, if you put the metal plate in the center of your phone, then you'll have 1/2 of your phone sticking out (top/bottom) and blocking 2 things. * Obviously, is you listen to CDs, this will not work. The CD slot must be empty to use effectively * Though magnets hold well, keep in mind that if the metal plate is installed on the bottom of the back of a bigger phone, it may be more difficult to maintain a horizontal orientation of the phone as it will want to dip on the non-magnetic end due to weight. If the metal plate is in the center of the back of the phone, this should not be a problem but could affect wireless charging. OTHER OBSERVATIONS: ----------------------------------- * The instructions state that the small plastic adapter piece (used to make loose connections tighter) can be shaken loose in order to remove. I was unable to remove using that method; however, using a pair of needle-nose pliers pulled it out safely and easily. * With the CD player usually near the radio controls, just be mindful of those controls if your phone is blocking them. If you are streaming and using your phone for all things audio, then you may not have an issue. Also keep in mind the location of your car clock as the clock on some phone faces is very small and may be hard to read while driving. * Mounting the metal plate directly behind the inductive charging area could hinder your wireless charging feature. Be mindful and test before adhering to the phone. * iOttie makes another mount with an induction/wireless charging option. This mount does not have charging built-in and costs less. CONCLUSION: ================= This is a great device and very useful especially for phones/devices that have metal already as part of the housing. This CD mount concept will be hit or miss for everyone as the CD slot is located in so many different places depending on your vehicle. Some are up high which is good (like my Frontier), and some may be low (some newer Infiniti models amongst others) which could be a problem not only with viewing angle, but interference with other controls. The thing I enjoyed was the strength, durability, and the ability to change angles of the device so that even the passenger could use easily if needed (movies on long trips). While magnetically engaged, the phone can still be plugged up for charging (a wire is also used for wireless charging version of this mount, but to the mount itself). Overall, a great concept. With everyone using their phones today, this may help with creating a safer driving experience inside the vehicle. Please Don't text and Drive.

    I purchased a similar product from another retailer that was shaped in a way that interfered with my radio volume knob, and you had to squeeze the clamp to get the phone in or out. It broke about a week later and I looked all over for a cd mount with a slim profile like this one had in its pictures and I love the magnetic mount versus having to squeeze. I think I’m going to be a big fan of this mount for a long time to come, thanks guys!

    Good mount for certain cars/devices

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Hold, Safety, Sturdy
    Cons mentioned:
    Small

    This mount is very simplistic so really anyone could set it up but there are a few key items to mention regarding the use in relation to the car and what phone someone may have. In the box: - Mount - 2 Sizes of magnets (Small black, Large Silver) - Manual - Clip to adjust locking of mount in CD Player for certain applications The mount slid into my CD player without a problem and without the need to use the supplied clip. My guess is that clip is used for certain vehicles in which the CD player gap is a different size so it will actually lock properly into place. The magnets are of two sizes, one smaller meant to be mounted on the phone/case directly so it touches the mount. The larger/stronger magnet is meant to be on the inside of a case or on the back of a phone with a case on. I choose to use the smaller black magnet on the outside of my black phone case towards the bottom of my LG V40 and it works fairly well... until you want to use the phone sideways on the mount. The manual says to mount either magnet lower on the phone if your device uses wireless charging so it does not interfere with the charging. Since I do use wireless charging from time to time I did as the directions stated and mounted it about 3/4 of the way down. The mount does hold the device well in the upright position but is not strong enough to do so sideways because of how I mounted the magnet on the phone. If the larger magnet was also black and not bright silver I might have choose to use the larger one because of its extra strength but was limited to the smaller black one due to the color and how I wanted to mount it on the outside of my case. If you plan to use your phone sideways a lot make sure to plan according while choosing how to put the magnet on your phone/case. The mount itself as a fairly large range of swivel (Plenty for the average car). It is very secure within the CD player and did not notice any movement while driving. Any movement while driving was coming from the phone and strength of the magnets to each other. Pros: - Quick Mount/Dismount of phone - Stealthy way to mount phone (If magnet is hidden under a case) - Uses CD player which I never use and is out of the way Cons: - Larger magnet is not black like smaller one - Larger phones can be a bit heavy for small magnet depending on mounting location of magnet on phone - Magnet needs to be mounted to phone/case which adds a little weight to your device - Location of CD player in my car is directly above my touchscreen so when my phone is mounted it hides part of the screen - Wireless charging can hinder where you are able to mount the magnet on your phone Overall I would recommend this mount if you are ok with where your phone sits in relation to a potential touch screen or screen in general. Also consider what phone you have and where you would be able to mount the magnet on your phone and whether your phone has wireless charging or not as this can limit you to using the mount in only one position like myself. This is a good mount for certain people just make sure you are one of them!

    Finally a use for the CD slot!

    Hold, Safety, Set up

    The iOttie - iTap 2 cell phone holder for the CD slot is my new favorite cell phone holder for my car. I have an iPhone X and this is a perfect fit in my 2014 Honda Accord. It puts my phone within reach without totally obstructing the view of my dash camera or media system. The magnet provided sticks to a clear applicator which sticks to your phone - so you don't have to worry about having to peel off a heavy magnet when you switch out phones. I have the magnet under a Soeck case and it has worked great. There have been NO issues with the phone falling from the mount when driving. I feel it is secure and it was very easy to install and remove. Would highly recommend for any older cars that have a CD player that never get used like mine.

    I just got a new used truck with a CD holder and I bought this to put my iPad mini. I have all my two thousand iTunes music, audiobooks & podcast on the mini and that's all I listen to. It covers the radio which I don't play anyway and use the steering wheel volume control. The mount is strong enough to hold the mini and I wouldn't doubt would hold most any iPad.

    Pros mentioned:
    Hold

    I've tried several suction cup phone mounts over the years, but they never really worked very well. There was never a smooth surface in a convenient location, and they would always come loose and fall off. I eventually gave up and quit using a mount. However, since my current car has a CD slot I never use, I thought I'd give this a try. After using it for a week, I'm loving it! I have a Samsung S9+ and I use wireless chargers at home and work--almost never plugging it in. My first concern was if the small metal plate would interfere with that. So, for the first day I used masking tape to keep the plate in place and then used it on all three models of wireless chargers I use. You can see in the photo I put it as close to the bottom as possible, and also had to shift a little to one side for the kick stand. It worked just fine on all of my stands (flat, portrait and landscape positions). Next, I used the adhesive to attach it permanently (hopefully) and actually used it on the mount in the car. It held it in place amazingly well. After a couple particularly nasty bumps it did tip a little to one side, but that's not a big deal to me if it's a rare occurrence. The important thing is that it's holding my phone in a convenient place to view and use it. As others have said, the position of your CD slot is extremely important. Mine is at the top of all the audio/climate controls, so my phone goes above that and just blocks the display which is only a problem when I want to see the backup camera. (I just pop the phone on after I've pulled out of my parking space.) It does nearly block the clock display, but if I lean just a bit to the right I can still glance at the big clock. Individual cars will vary widely, so you'll want to think about your setup before you buy. Also, it looks like you can buy extra metal plates for other phones if you need them. I'm glad I finally have a usable car mount for my phone!

    Not the Option for Me

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Sturdy

    I needed a car mount for my cell. Normally, I can wear a lanyard to have the phone in easy reach. However, it makes it difficult to view maps or access music if I need to do so. I wanted a basic mount that allowed access but wasn’t a permanent mount. The iOttie that I tried is a CD player mount. When I ordered it, I thought I had a traditional CD player. However, I realized too late that I had a DVD player that was behind a computerized display. The first step is to attach either a small or large metal plate to your phone or case, as the unit is magnetic. Both plates are hideously ugly. You would not want them on the outside of your phone. I have a phone with wireless charging capability, so the recommendation was to use the smaller plate on the outside of the case. However, that would cover up part of my decorative case, and it interfered with my PopSocket. So, I placed the larger metal plate inside my case. Placing the unit in my car proved to be a challenge. The unit would not fit in my DVD player at all. Trying to force it was out of the question because of how my display folded down – I was afraid to damage it. So, I tried it use in my vent. The unit fit, though I was unable to lock it into place. The phone seemed to sit OK, but had I taken a sharp turn I’m not sure it would have stayed put. I would have rather had flexibility to use it in a CD player OR a vent OR some other spot as one kit, rather than being stuck with only one option. Yes, I was able to use it elsewhere, but that wasn’t how it was designed, so I cannot award points for that. The magnet was strong, but the phone was mounted higher than I would have liked. It was mounted on the lower third of my phone trying to keep access to the wireless charging. If you have an older vehicle (pre-2010 maybe?) you might be OK using this unit. If you have a newer car, I would look at other mount options.

    Good option if your choices are limited

    Pros mentioned:
    Hold, Product construction, Safety
    Cons mentioned:
    For dashboard

    The iTap2 magnetic CD slot phone holder is an ingenious idea. If your car's vents are the type that can't support holding the weight of a bracket and phone, then this could be your answer. The iTap2 is very well constructed and sturdy. It has an innovative design that has you insert rubber-covered "fins" into your CD slot in the dash. You then tighten a clip that causes the middle fin to move upward, creating pressure against the edges of the CD slot that holds the mount in place. Once locked in like this, it's basically impossible for it to fall out. It's also pretty tough to unlock that clip, so it's best if you are able to leave it in place for a while. You also shouldn't have a CD in the slot when you use this mount. I'm not sure if this would hold true for multi-CD players, so you may want to see what others are saying about that. Depending on how much you use your CD player, this could be a big drawback. The part that holds the phone is a magnetic base on a ball joint. This allows you to move it to whatever position gives you the angle you want. This is difficult to move, but that's as it should be, since you don't want your phone moving around while you're driving. The magnet connects to a metal plate that you put either on the back of the phone itself, or inside the phone's case. Two sizes of plates are provided, a larger one and a smaller one. The small one is designed to be small enough not to block the Qi charging area on your phone, if you have that. Ideally, you want the plate to be in the middle back of your phone, so that it doesn't spin around, but that will depend on your phone and what works best for you. Once everything is in place, the mount holds the phone securely and works very well. The only issue I found (and this could be a big one) is that your phone may block access to buttons on the dash. You'll want to take this into account before you buy the iTap2. The position of your CD slot makes all the difference. If there's nothing you need to access behind the phone, then you'll have no problem and this mount will provide a secure and well-built alternative to window mounted holders or vent mounted holders. If all of this sounds good to you, then I think you'll enjoy the iTap2 magnetic phone mount.

    At first I was skeptical because I thought it was solely for iphone, but it is for any phone as long as you are willing to attach the metal magnet to your phone or case. The magnet attaches to the cd player insert, so be prepared to not use it while having this setup. It is also slightly hard to remove due to the fact that you have to clamp it down, so beware. But other than that it is a great and nifty phone holder.

    This works very well and I was happy to try it in my car, but when I got home and put my phone of the charger it would not charge. I do have it in a life Proof case and once I added the metal plate it was just to much for my charger so i stopped using the car mount and went back to the old one I had.

    Very sturdy phone holder. I’d tried those AC vent clip types before and always ended up with phone flying off. This works very well. I purchased a separate phone case elsewhere with magnetic back built in.

    It will hold iPhone11 horizontal or vertical. Comes with a magnet you would put on the inside of your case. I did not need to use this since my case was already magnetic. Depends on the model of auto if it obstructs view of radio.

    Make sure your car has a CD slot, if so, you probably don't use it so this is a great alternative to clipping to your vent and blocking air flow. Two magnets included along with film to protect your phone. If you use wireless charging often, look into details about the conflicts. I don't use wireless charging so this potential conflict didn't matter to me. Magnet head on the mount swivels to angle your device to best suite viewing angle.

    Works well. Had to add the extra piece to keep it stable. Make sure you add the magnet to a clean phone/case so it sticks on.

    The CD slot mount is perfect. I did not want a cup holder mount, some suction cup sitting way up high on my dash or something blocking my air vents. This mount worked perfectly in my 2016 Tacoma I do not use the CD player so the mount has a permanent home. Rotates easily when I want to see my reverse cam. The under case magnet didnt hold so well under my otter box case but I switched it to between the two layers and now works great.

    This product was good when I use to have my old Chevy Cruze. Be able to put my phone on this then use the phone version of android auto made it feel safer. It only fell out once a month probably
