    I do quite a bit of driving on the daily bases and use my phone through my day. I have been very particular with my mounts and have purchased a new mount every few months due to breaking wear and tear. I have used quite a bit of different varieties. Most of them purchased at bestbuy. All of the mounts that have arms and hug your phone I have tried. They have the spring loaded mechanism. I found them to always wear out and eventually break. This mount using a magnet is absolutely great. Easy to slide off while your driving and more importantly so easy to put your phone back on. Basically slap it to the magnet and your golden. I've worried about the phone falling off during bumps and rough terrain but I have to say the Manet is amazing. Phone doesn't budge at all. I have a mophie battery pack which is a secondary battery on my phone which essentially is a phone case just much thicker. I placed the inner magnet on the inside of my mophie which did NOT work. I had to place the magnet on the outside of the mophie which is on the back of the phone where it grabs magnet to vent mount magnet. Overall I've seen 20 different mounts mostly from Best Buy. This one is the best. Don't waste your money on the spring loaded devices. The spring breaks over time and you end up buying a new mount and taking your hands off the wheel to put your phone up on the dash. This thing just slap your phone on and keep yourself focused on the road. That easy

    A very good product for smaller phones

    I read a lot of reviews prior to buying the product. All the comments I read were accurate. I drive a 2015 Prius and the location and layout of the vents in the car are not the greatest for this product. The vents are thicker and are horizontal versus vertical. I have a Samsung Note phone and it is big and heavy. Because of its size and weight, combined with the horizontal vents, the phone slips off. The main vent is so close to the dashboard, that the sun coming in makes the screen difficult to read when you have the GPS on. I can attach it to the vent on the left side of the steering wheel, but it is unnatural to look there and take my eye off the road for the purpose of navigating. In addition, the phone blocks the ventilation and takes the brunt of the cold or hot air flowing through. I am sure that is not good for the electronics. /an option is to close the vents. Still, I do like this product and think it is ideal for a smaller phone. I encourage you to scrutinize the layout of your vents prior to making the purchase or testing it out and considering returning it if the vents in your car are not favorably set up.

    Comes with a separate magnet that it needs to contact with. There are several ways to mount it but I actually used my brain and stuck it to someone’s business card I was handed and slipped it behind my phone and case. Not visible and will not leave sticky residue on my phone! Use this trick and you have a phone mount that you literally slap the phone onto and forget about it. Also people think you’re super trendy when your phone mount literally takes no effort and you just put it on the mount. Very useful. ONE MORE TIP. Wipe off the mount every once in a while. Will collect dirt from your phone. If you notice it not holding as well as usual it’s probably because the mount is collecting dirt. Wipe off or clean with a Clorox wipe and you’re back in the game.

    This purchase was initially a result of a mistake -I accidentally ordered another product for store pickup. Totally my fault. However, had it not been for a very knowledgeable gentleman at the pick up desk who made a recommendation for this product, I would have walked out empty handed. What a great product! I have tried numerous 'vent clip' ideas in the past but none have worked as effectively as this little gem. As a matter of fact, most either break or damage the car's vent. Not this one! Perfect fit and it holds the phone perfectly as well. As a driver of an enthusiast car, it's also great to have the screen in my line of sight right there with the instrument cluster so my eyes stay straight ahead. Overall, probably the least expensive, most valuable purchase I've recently made at Best Buy.

    Useful but limiting

    This gadget is pretty handy. I love how convienant it is to just throw your phone on it as soon as you get in the car and your phone being in front of you and easily accessible. However, in my car, particularly, I cannot place the mount in my middle vents (above my stereo) bc my stereo buttons protrude out and my phone, when placed on the mount, does not make full contact with the mount. So I have to mount the mount on the drivers side vent near the door. Which isn’t awful but my aux cord and charger cord do not reach over to the drivers side so I can neither charge nor listen to the music on my phone while my phone is mounted. This is only the case with my car. So be aware of your car vents and what’s going on directly under them! Other than that, the mount is useful!

    Great product, but not perfect

    What I like: 1) Magnetic is so much better than suction cup mounts, and is plenty strong enough to hold the phone even on bumpy roads. 2) The small metal plate you adhere to your phone case is minimally intrusive and adds virtually no bulk to the phone itself and is nice and big. 3) Can be transferred easily to other vehicles. What I don't like: 1) This is really just nitpicking, but although it'll fit in any vent, depending on the exact style if your vent, you may be limited in the angle in which the mount can be set to, but you generally can still rotate your phone freely to any degree you like. I'd still recommend this product because you can't blame it for your vent style limiting it's ability to be angled. I don't use it in my personal car, but use it daily in my work car.

    The holder clips on to the vent louvers quite well. However, the magnet is not powerful enough to hold the phone securely when the steel plate is between the phone and my Speck phone case. It does hold marginally, but the phone tends to slide down and eventually fall when the road is rough. This is particularly an issue if the phone is plugged into the charger -- the additional weight of the cord often proves too much. I imagine if I glued the plate to the outside of the case (an option) the magnet would hold securely, but that would be ugly. Also, the product claims to have a strong enough magnet to work through the case, but it's marginal.

    This is a thoughtfully designed $21 solution. The base, which contains the magnet, clips on firmly to a vent slat or similar object, providing a vertical or near vertical attachment surface. Each of the two pads can each be self-adhered to the back of a device which is then held to the base magnetically. The magnet is strong enough to allow use of the touch screen, yet the device pulls away easily when detaching it. The adhesive works well, yet I was able to carefully remove one of the pads with a paint scraper when my phone changed and reattach it to the new one with my own contact cement. Worked perfectly for me but you might have a different environment or needs.

    This Scosche MagicMount Universal Car Vent Mount is great for all drivers, especially Sales Reps (like me) who basically live out of their vehicles. It allows you to mount your cell phone quickly & easily . The adhesive plate adheres to the back of your phone & works with any magnetic phone mount. The advantage of the Vent Mount is that it is portable. The magnet is strong enough to hold an iPhone 6. You can use the Vent Mount in any vehicle since it easily attaches & detaches from vents. It is also inexpensive & allows you to position your phone as a GPS. The obvious disadvantage is that you cannot be blasting the heat while using it. That is why I also have the Dash Mount!

    I have been looking for a better option when it comes to mounting the GPS to where you can see it and it does not fall down. Vehicles are getting harder and harder to find a spot to place the GPS and still see and use it. When you rent cars often you need something universal - every car so far has had air vent reasonably located to where you can attach the adapter and magnetically connect the GPS to it and it stays. The only plus the device that would make it even better is if it offered a way to pivot the screen - not a deal breaker but would be a great addition.

    Used extensively while on vacation in Phoenix. Clipped phone to dash vent on new Chevy Malibu and used mapping quite a bit. Be aware that the steel plate which nestles in the case on the back of the phone may interfere if the case has some irregular shapes molded in. Not a problem if you are willing to sculpt it a bit to fit. I did that with the hard shell case for my Droid and it worked perfectly. It is magnetic and makes mounting the phone really easy. The phone gets cold or warm because of the air flow from the vent... If your vents have levers sticking out of them that may make use more difficult.

    I did a lot of search and tried too many products which fits on vent. In all cases my phone was falling off because the magnetic wasn't that strong or rotating when I turn my car. Finally, tried this one which was recommended by bestbuy employer. No accidental fall or rotate. The only downside is when you attach the metal plate at the middle of phone, the wireless charging won't work anymore, and if you use case the thicker the case the less strong the magnetic. If you decide to attach the plate inside your case then you stick with only one case.

    If you're thinking of purchasing this particular mount, just walk away. First, Scosche claims you can insert a plate inside your phone's protective case and then the "powerful magnets" will hold your device in place. WRONG! I tried it that way... obviously it didn't work. I could have stuck it to the outside of my case, but why would I want to deal with cleaning off adhesive later on? Second, there is no adjustment with the vent mount, so if your vents aren't perfectly straight, your device will hang at an angle. Or, you'll have to point your vent up so high that it will do you no good for ventilation. The bottom line? Invest in a Steelie

    A friend at work had one of these. I got one and love it. I am able to set my phone on it and it works great. I use it on a Otterbox and it is between the ruler and the hard plastic on a iPhone 7. never had a slip issue. I also had some other rare earth magnets. I glued one to the side of my work bench and no my phone connects to it with no issue. Package comes with 2 plates, so you could use the small one on a phone and larger on iPad. I used large on my phone, just to have the extra surface area. Also my case is thick, so wanted more metal. I would recommend this!

    been looking for a car mount for my phone for a while without having the time to struggle to put on and take out when im always on the go. This def. made my life so much easier! all i had to do is put the metal inside my case and attach it against the magnet and not have to worry about where im driving. The only minor downside is that if you put the metal piece inside the case it's not going to hold as strong vs when you stick it outside your phone. So when you hit some bumps don't be surprised if your phone falls off

    So I bought two of these because I have two phones. The first thing I noticed was that the magnet I put in my galaxy does not stick to the back well. So each time I would pull the phone of the other end the magnet would slip of. The magnet sticks really well on my iPhone because the back is matted, however it does look really ugly on the back of the phone without a case. I do love the convenience of just being able to sleep right there on my vent, and it does t come off with hard turn or breaks.

    This product was recommended to me from an employee here who also purchased this item. I have a Samsung 6 and I attached he magnet to my phone and put the case over it. It is stronger if there is no obstruction between the the two magnets, but it is still very strong. I comes with 2 sizes, and a thin film that if you use it between the phone and magnet, it supposedly makes it easy to remove with little residue. Simple to use and install. The mount itself is strong and it stays put. It's worth it.

    I purchased a previous model of the same brand that also clipped onto the vent of my previous car. I loved it, but the clips sometimes came loose from the vent flaps. This model hugs the vent flap tight and holds the phone closer and much more securely. I have an iPhone 6S Plus, so it's a bit heavier than some, but the magnet mount holds it with no problem, and I like how easy it is to attach or detach compared to ones that clip your phone in. Great product, and it was at least $10 cheaper than the previous one.

    I live in a hot area, so of its hot outside, it gonna be very hot in my car. The other two types of mounts I've bought (the stick on dash, and the other type of vent mount) both broke down/melted in the heat. I've been using this one for some time and it's still holding on to my vent and my phone tightly. The magnet is powerful enough to reach though silicone, but if you have a case on the thick side, you phone won't stick on well. It works best when the metal and magnet are right on each other.

    Was looking for a way to mount my new phone in the truck where I could see it and easily reach if need be. I saw this in the store and decided to try it. I AM IMPRESSED AND PLEASED. This product exceeded my expectations. I have used it during my travels across the US and it has not failed me. It was easy to install and holds my phone tight. I will buy another one in the future.
