    Does what it says on the box.

    I bought this because I frequently use Google Maps for navigation and have to try to hold it with a couple fingers while my hands are on the wheel, or put it on the passenger seat and hope the voice alerts me soon enough to make my turns. I initially mounted it on the dash, but found the position awkward to see the screen, and it was too easy to bump the charging cable and knock my phone down because part of it touched the dash and prevented a solid connection with the magnets. Ultimately, I moved it up to just left of the rearview mirror, where it is easy to see and the charging cable can be draped out of the way. This has been a great place for me as it's not blocking any of my vision and doesn't make me take my eyes off the road like looking down toward my dash would do. It comes with two magnet sizes to mount onto the phone. I used the larger one, feeling that it makes a bit better connection and I can nudge the phone a little if needed without it coming loose. The instructions say to mount the magnet onto the back of the phone, but instead I mounted it inside the hard outer shell of my phone case. If you need to reposition the mount, you will need to clean the suction cup as it's very slightly tacky and will get covered with dust and fuzz, preventing it from sticking to the new surface. I just used the little cleaning wipe provided with the mount to get everything off the cup, and to wipe off my windshield where I chose to place it. Once it was cleaned, it made a strong connection to the new surface and I've had no issues with it moving or losing suction. It has been working just great for me, and it's so simple just to press my phone up to it and let the magnets hold it without having to fiddle with clamps or screws etc. My phone has never fallen in the new position I placed the mount. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a simple phone mount so long as they're not wanting to put a giant phone or iPad/tablet on it as the magnet will not be strong enough to hold them.

    Great idea and pretty good execution

    I purchased this to allow me a phone as GPS mount that I didn't have to remove from the windshield to put my sun screen up. The rough surfaces mount was the primary selling point with the magnetic mount being second. The rough surface mount has worked very well. Despite cleaning the area really well, I did have some issues with the mount releasing. After a few iterations it seemes to have cleaned off any tiny stuff I missed and is now holding without issue. The magnetic mount is great, though it required that I purchase a new case and mount the plate externally. I had not expected that based on the description, but it was the only way I could make it work. Overall I am happy, but the lack of strength on the magnet through the case was a bit of a let down

    Bought this unit for my Jeep Wrangler, but it took up too much real estate on either the dash or the already cramped visibility of the Jeeps windshield (for my Jeep, I went with the cigarette lighter/charger mount). I put THIS unit in my wife's Dodge Journey mounted to the top/center of the dash, and it fit's perfect! The mount is absolutely rock solid, and will not come off unless you REALLY want it to. The magnet hold her iPhone 7s in place like it's permanently attached using the large metal plate (both large and small metal plates are provided). Overall, this unit is very impressive in quality, durability and functionality and I intend on having one for every vehicle I own from now on.

    This is the third one I have had. It is the only one that works in my 2015 Camaro Convertible. The dashboard is mostly curved and different textures. This is the only one that fits into the tiny space I needed it to be for comfort of distance and proper angle. I said this is my third one because my car is Black and it gets extremely hot inside in the South Florida sun. As with anything else down here most things dry out and just stop sticking. Other than that it fits exactly where I need it to be. Even my radar detector falls off the windshield a lot and I paid $500 for it. So even top of the line things don't always hold up. I HIGHLY recommend this!!!

    Probably good for phones smaller than S9+

    Concept is great and easy to use however I prefer to have my phone in a horizontal position when driving and the magnet was not strong enough to hold the S9 + in place. Phone never fell off the mount but It would spin around and end up with the top of the phone pointing to the cars floorboard. To be fair the metal plate was mounted near the bottom of the phone so it would not interfere with the Qi charging, if you put the metal plate in the middle of the phone would probably work well enough , same with having the phone vertically mounted. The XL model which is made for tablets and such would be a better choice for larger phones.

    It does the job when placed on the stand vertically, but horizontally it slowly slides off. If the magnet you place on your phone was larger you probably wouldn’t have this problem, but unfortunately it’s about the size of your finger nail where the magnet on the stand is about 2” x 2”. As far as the stands suction, it’s incredible. It works just as well as an adhesive. But doesn’t leave a residue on your dash. If they make a larger magnet, I would highly recommend this. If not, try and see if there’s something else unless you just want to use it vertically.

    Says it holds on textured surfaces not in all instances is true. I found in winter with heater running it looses its hold had my phone fall multi pull times. On the windshield no issue. The other problem is when you use wireless charging you have to put the metal plate all the way to the bottom of the phone so when windshield mounted you have to tilt phone at a downward angle or put the mount very low on the windshield. As far as recommending to a friend it's more a mabe!

    I have been looking for a proper stand for my cell phone. After several purchases of the types that you stick it into the vent or the CD slot, my experience is that they all eventually fall out or prevent air flow. I purchase this one. This one is perfect and allows you to charge a second phone with the USB port. Make sure that your lighter Port is accessible. I use this on a Ford Focus hatchback.

    I have used many of these suction mounts and it holds very well! The magnetic strength is great! My car has a lowered suspension and even with it being bouncy the phone has never fallen. Easy to grab the phone and re-attach it with one hand. Beats those other holders where you need two hands to release it and put it back. I’ll never go back to those again. Magnetic is the way! Excellent product for the price!

    Purchased to use my phone as a GPS

    I purchased this primarily to allow me to use my phone as a GPS and it has served that purpose well. Mounted the unit to my dash and a magnetic strip to the back of my phone underneath the case. The strip is so thin if doesn't affect the fitting of the phone case. My car already has Bluetooth and a nice touchscreen, but using the GPS on my phone is cheaper than buying one or subscribing to OnStar.

    This thing is outstanding! It has stuck to the windshield of my truck since day one and has not loosened up at all. Very very reliable. And the magnet works extremely well. No movement whatsoever as long as you place the metal on the outside of your phone case and use the larger one if you have a larger phone. You do that, and your phone will go nowhere! Great great buy!

    Just installed yesterday. Suction cup took a little work to find the right spot to install, but once it took it's working great so far. The magnet feature is outstanding. I have a Galaxy Note 8 so a very heavy phone and the magnet holds it well. I've even flipped between portrait and landscape with no issue. Can't beat the price either.

    Love this thing! It's sturdy and holds my phone very securely. The adjustable base allows me to move my phone around to find the perfect viewing angle. It does leave sticky residue on your windshield when removed so it's not something you can easily pop on and off just FYI, but I don't ever remove mine so it's not a concern for me.

    This is my second Scosche mount I have purchased for myself. I like this one because you can stick it with the suction cup to a window or any part of your vehicle. The magnet is strong enough to hold your phone from even the worst pothole or railroad tracks. Do you have a thin phone case though or take your case off so the phone is not too heavy

    I was looking for someting to put my cellphone while Im driving. This was exactly what Im looking for. It sticks to any place you want to place in your car. I like that I can also use it when I place it on my bedroom table. Now my cellphone has its own stand. I would look if they have any for an ipad.

    Strong Magnet

    I bought this holder for my TomTom since the mounting bracket that came with it broke. I applied the magnet, and it holds it firmly. It's a little top-heavy, but that's because it's not really designed for the TomTom. I have another stand that sits on the dash that the front of the TomTom rests on. Works great.

    This thing will not adhere to any surface. The suction will not stay attached to my dash or windshield while bearing the weight of my phone or ipod. I emailed the manufacturer and requested a new suction cup be sent out. It did not work either. At that point it had been too long for me to return the product and get my money back. Do not purchase this product.

    I’ve used a number of suction cup magnetic mounts, this one is great! I’ve used this on a number of surfaces in a number of environments. In the car, on the plane, on dressers, mirrors, etc. This mount held strong in all environments and locations keeping my phone in view for any length of time.

    This mount is absolutely perfect. Holds my Pixel 3 XL without any issues. The phone does not fall or shift while driving. The mount stays secure and has not had to be reattached. It is secure right where I installed it the first time. Love it and highly recommend. I would purchase again.

    This is a great mount! It's been suctioned to the windshield without problem (no drops or falls) for over a month with no issue. The included multiple metal plates are a nice touch. I have one on my phone, and my wife has one on hers. Highly recommended.
