    Does not stick to anything in my vehicle

    This is the second mount I've purchased of this model, and the second one I will be returning. The suction cup sticks great for the first 15 minutes or so then just falls right off. I have tried to hold the suction cup directly in front of my heater on full blast to get the glue hot and make it more sticky. Then I put it back on the windshield and pressed firmly for over 2 minutes before letting go and flipping the suction clamp closed. A gentle tug would suggest that the glue has firmly adhered to the window and that the suction cup is fully fastened. Then, literally seconds later, the mount falls off my window -single every time. I have an older model of this mount in my car that has a longer neck and no glue on the suction cup. Though I had to return the first one of this model too, because the suction cup had broken off of the clamp piece during shipping, the second one I bought works just fine. I hope to find one of those again to replace this newer one with for my truck (I can't find it at best buy, I think I got the old one at Walmart). DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY on this new design! It's terrible.

    Best Phone Holder Ever

    So my family and I have tried a few items on the market to hold our phones up in clear view while we drive for directions. The phone vent type failed us because it kept falling down and was also partially hidden behind the steering wheel. The plan suction cup type window phone holder. This one was annoying because no matter how small the phone it kept falling off the window. It was also time consuming to ratchet it to lock in place and then to unlock it when your ready to leave your vehicle. Scosche - MagicMount Dash/Window Mount for Most GPS Device took out the falling of the window by using a renewable washable sticky gel on the inside of the suction cup. They also made it faster to mount your phone to the holder by using a magnet. You do not have to stick he metal directly to your phone if you are using a phone case. All you have to do is drop the thin piece of metal in the center of your phone case put your phone case back on your phone then just lay your phone one the holder and your ready to go.

    Really good cell phone mount!

    I really love this cell car mount, I had gotten a multi-pack of this same mount elsewhere for my parents, and decided to get one for myself. I lucked out and got it on sale, which was a bonus. I use a PopSocket on my phone, so the only reason I'm take off one star is because sometimes my phone kind of falls forward or falls off because it's not as stable of a holder with the magnet that goes inside the PopSocket. I'm debating adding another magnet to the actual inside of my case in addition, though I'm not sure it will work if the PopSocket is in the way. But for the most part, it's the best mount I've used so far! I'd definitely recommend if you don't use a PopSocket, but would recommend even if you do, with the caveat that's it can have its struggles.

    Great short armed phone mount

    I purchased two of these mounts for my two new cars (wife and myself). I was tired of setting the phone in the cup holders and had seen Lyft drivers use mounts for their phones. I knew where I wanted to mount (plastic triangular area on the driver's side door opposite of the side view mirror) and was looking for a mount with a short arm and that would would be removable as well as stick to any surface. Having the ability to be remove and reused is a plus which this mount offers. Lastly, I didn't want a mount that "clamps" since I think it looks tacky. This Scosche mount did the trick and has been working flawlessly. The arm is slightly flexible and I was able to position my phone at a perfect angle in both cars. I do have a problem with one though as the arm is now beginning to wiggle and not be as firm as the other. I use the larger magnet (it comes with a small and large) on my iPhone 6+ w/Apple leather case and it holds solid. I'd definitely give this mount a shot if you are looking for a short arm!

    It has a good concept behind it. Personally, I prefer a magnetic phone holder any day to those jenky spring-loaded-clip pieces of junk. Score one for science! (Magnets...How do they work?). The downside is that you have to stick the other half of the magnet, the mating piece, to the back of your phone case. If you're like me, and you change your phone cases out every once in a while, then that puts you quite a predicament. Maybe the next model could be improved by using a stronger magnet. That way all you have to do is attach it directly to the back of your phone, sandwiched between your phone and case, and have it work successfully through the case... any case. And considering that these things are going for $30 a pop, asking for a stronger magnet is not asking for much, imo. Other than that, this thing is pretty decent. 8/10. Would recommend.

    Not Your Normal Suction Cup

    I have owned several GPS and would always try the stick on mounts that came with them only to reattach them every few days to maybe 2 weeks if I got lucky. Grew tired of that and went to the bean bag mount which was much better except it would slide around some and even block my view of gauges or clocks in some vehicles. I noticed my son's phone mount and asked about it. Told me it was a Scosche mount from Best Buy. I went and bought the GPS mount within a couple of days. It's like the suction cup is made with some type of sticky substance that doesn't cause a mess on the windshield. Two months and not a single case of falling off the windshield and that includes several days of direct sunlight. Love it and I will purchase more of this company's product from Best Buy.

    Magnet works but nothing else

    I purchased this item at my local Best Buy a couple of days ago. (Val #:000080-692667-115053-263774-394565-590) I've tried 3 vehicles to get the mount to work. Just in case there was something funky about a cleaner that I use I tried a neighbors vehicle as well. It will not stay attached no matter what I try. I used the included wipe to clean the windshield, it falls off every time. The suction mount does not work for me in any way. I've tried it dry and moistened for a better grip. I can never mount my phone (LG G3) because the windshield mount falls off before I can get it there. I've had many similar mounts for phones and GPS units over the years. We're not talking about rocket surgery here. After the umpteenth time of having it fall off, I threw it out the window. Should have returned it but was over it and I wanted it gone. At 43 years old, this is my one and only online review ever. I hated this so much I wasted the time to pass along my hate.

    Broke in less than a week

    I had just bought a new car and needed a dash mount for my phone. I decided to try the Magic Mount because the price was good and I wanted to try a mount without noisy brackets. It worked beautifully! Suction adhesion to the dash was nice and strong. The magnet held my phone in place very nicely. The cord clip kept my phone's power cord in easy reach. It was working just fine. Then one day I made a turn only to watch my phone still attached to the Magic Mount go sliding off my dash and land on the passenger side floorboard. The suction cup was still firmly attached to the dash. The suction cup had broken where it attaches to the mount. There was no way to fix it. Now, I may have just gotten a faulty one, but to break with less than a week's use? That's just not good. I ended up replacing it with Bracketron's SI magnetic dash mount, and have had no issues with that one.

    Broke in 20 days

    I attached this to my dash as instructed and the suction cup piece broke from the frame. When I took it back to show them the associate just looked at me and asked "what do you want me to do about it?" I explained it only lasted 20 days and it was actually only attached 16 days. I got the good ole sorry but there is no return policy for this product. Sadly this is the first time I ever experienced this non nonchalant, whatever kind of a response from a Best Buy Associate. I was so taken back by it I couldn't even go to the manager in case I was to get the same response from him. So I ate the $32.00 and chalked it up to "don't buy from there anymore. I wouldn't recommend this product though. It really does not work well at all. The magnetism device in it though is outstanding, if they could only get the rest of it to work

    I got this mount for my iPhone 6+. Although I couldn't get the suction cup to work on my dash, it works great on the windshield. The magnet is surprisingly strong, and worked great on my leather case. I recently bought another case (magpul), and it is significantly thicker and has ridges. I have had problems with it staying on securely. The concept and functionality is so good, I am considering ditching my new case (which I love btw), just so I can continue using the mount. In fact, I was about to purchase another mount to leave in our family vehicle so that I can easily mount my iPhone in either vehicle I use. Other than the problem with my new thicker case, I wish the mount was more easily flexible and easy to twist/ turn in the direction desired... it's pretty stiff. If you have a thinner type case, I highly recommend this product!

    Best Dash/Window mount!

    I bought this to use with my cell phone while driving, either in GPS or talk mode, hands-free. It can be mounted on the dash or the window and works great either way, and the flexible neck lets you adjust it to your liking. I love the magnetic mount because you don't have to make fitting adjustments; it just sticks right on. Since I always keep my phone protected with it's Otterbox cover, I attached the larger magnet on the outside of the case. It is slim, unobtrusive, and holds strong, even on bumpy roads. We all liked it so much, I bought one for each car in the house. It keeps the phone up where you can see it safely and best of all, out of your hands where you won't be looking down at it and taking your eyes off the road. One of the best products I have bought in a long time. I highly recommend it.

    The Best Phone Mount

    I purchased this mount after purchasing the window version of the mount. I use the window and dash mounts on two vehicles. This mount can position the phone directly over the screen in the dashboard. This mount remains secure on the textured surface of typical vehicle dashboards. The magnetic base keeps the phone secure on the worst of roads. I appreciate that the magnet is on the base and not on the plate that attaches to my phone case. No more erased credit cards. I STRONGLY recommend this mount. I love this mount so much I have the vent, window and original versions in my car.

    This is may second Scosche magnetic product, the first one was a Magnetic holster with a heavy mat ( or pad). This convinced me to buy this one for my other SUV. First, the suction cup is not as strong as I thought, especially in a hot environment ( 100 degrees F); and the magnet will hold only if your phone is not heavy. I tried on an iphone 6 and works great, but when an iPhone 6 Plus with a case was set, it continue to slowly slide and has to be re-center. The other one ( the "Mat") works great with both phones, so my advice-if you have the space to put in on the dash or next to the gear box-buy that one. As phones exponentially gets bigger in every next model, I may suggest the company must try a especial edition for them. Its a product you get to love over time despite the flaws.

    Best suction cup mount I have ever had.

    At the time of this review I have had the product for about a month. I placed the suction mount on my dash, not window. Living in SC and the heat it is exposed to during the Summer I was prepared to have to remount the suction as that is the norm for most suction based mounts. To this point I have not had to remount. It is Summer and the outside temp has been triple digits numerous times so you know inside a vehicle it is way hotter. I have the base plate on the backside of an Otterbox case but under the silicon outer cover. The magnet holds pretty good. Every now and then I may have to adjust because of uneven weight distribution of the phone on the mount and rough roads. Overall, I have been very pleased so far.

    I was in desperate need for a phone mount on our trip to California in July. While on vacation there, I found a location in San Francisco. There were very few options in stock. This one looked nice and a little different. It works great once installed. But, we had a tough time getting it to actually work with its suction cup. It was nearly a bust for the trip but it works great at home. The magnet piece that is needed to adhere to the phone/case is sometimes annoying especially those who enjoy a smooth, bump-free back to their phones or cases. I got over that. Finally, when mounted, the phone had a hard time staying straight on the magnet area. It tipped quite a bit side to side. Overall, it's a pretty nice mount all in all but there are annoyances that go with it.

    I loooove this thing. It's so easy to place, remove, and put back my phone. The clamp ones are awful, because it takes 2 hands. This is just as simple as pulling it off. It's a great magnet. The thin magnet can be placed inside of my thin case and still connect. I can actually connect to my Samsung Note 5, because of its metal back, but it's not a strong hold. No big deal. The magnets are super thin and my case is thin, so I just stick it inside the case and no one is wiser. A word of caution though, you can't wirelessly charge with it on. The magnet interfere with the connection and it won't work. That's not an issue for me because I charge my phone plugged in, because my cat likes to throw my phone off of the wireless charger. Lol Cats.

    First of all I doubted this product when I bought it but was pleasantly surprised when it worked well. The only things I didn't like about it was that it required a sticky steel plate to be stuck to your phone and the suction cup to mount to the windshield also had adhesive on it. I got around the first because my phone case fits so tightly that it holds the steel plate in place next to the phone without the adhesive. But the other part, I just bit the bullet on and stuck to the windshield, adhesive and all. After that it works pretty well but you have to use a soft touch when it is on the holder.

    Excellent Car phone holder

    This car cell phone holder works really well. I have my iPhone in a case and first mounted the magnet to the phone under the case and it held just fine to the holder. However, the magnet was a bit too thick so the plastic screen cover didn't retain the touch sensitivity in the area where the magnetic was mounted. So I put on the case itself and that solved the issue and still mounts perfectly. I had a previous holder that I had to manually release and tighten to hold the phone which was a pain and it eventually broke. I was skeptical at first that the magnet would hold my iPhone 6s with a case as I thought it would be too heavy, but it holds up like a champ. Highly recommend.

    Do any off road driving - run your car kind fast - crush some bumps now and then? If you answered yes or no to any of the above, this MagicMount is perfect for you. It does require that you put a thin metal plate on the back of whatever you wish to stick to it - but I can say it will not fall off unless you roll your rig. I have a jeep and travel 2 to 3 thousand easy to rough road miles on my vacations. This mount has never failed. It is so easy to use. Put the plate on the back of your device, put the device upto the holder. Thats it. easy on easy off, but I wont fall off. There are two sized plates - small and large. I use the large on on my Note 4 Samsung phone. Stick the landing every time. Enjoy with confidence. G

    Perfect mount for phone

    I love this mount! I have it on my dash since I hate windshield mounts. I was skeptical about it's staying power, since my dash is textured and not super smooth, but it hasn't budged. I live in GA half the month, and FL half the month, so it's been exposed to some almost uncomfortably hot temps so far. Still stuck as securely as it was when I first installed it. I put the included magnet on my phone, instead of on a case. Depending on the thickness of the case, the magnet *can* work through a case, but it's not as secure. I just take any case off while I'm using it. Very happy with this purchase.
