My car as I like the design of the holder, also like the service I got from Mobilefun.co.uk. I will recommend Mobilefun to my friends.
I installed in on my dash and was concerned it would not stick enough because of the curb.
So far it's been the easiest mount to use with my iPhones. I slide in the magnet between my iPhone and it's case and it is perfect to hold my iPhone while driving while making it it easy to remove with one hand.
Really love it so far:
- Great small design
- Very easy to install/Use
- Works with any device
Sorry to be so negative.
I followed instructions to the letter as I always do: cleaned surface (vinyl car fascia) with the supplied cloth; allowed to dry; applied Magic Mount in required location and held in place with some pressure for approx. 2 minutes to allow adhesive to fix.
At first it felt rock solid and I thought I had found the perfect discreet solution for mounting my Galaxy S5.
However, the following day I was driving along and the phone fell to the floor (with the Magic Mount still attached!!). Luckily the phone is not damaged!
The magnet part of the design is brilliant but unfortunately the adhesive does not appear to be able to hold on a vertical vinyl surface.
The images and videos clearly show devices (even tablets) being held by this solution on vertical surfaces so I thought my Galaxy would be no problem, even with case. I was wrong and the holder is now useless, i.e. the adhesive is shot.
The only slight downside is that the holder has to be stuck to the dashboard instead of using a suction cup approach.
Would recommend fast delivery
We stick the enclosed metal plate on the back of the tablet and it sticks beautifully to the powerful magnet of the Scosche mount.
We are so impressed that we bought 3 !!
The plate needs to be placed near to the centre of the phone back for stability. If the plate is placed too near the bottom of the phone, it shakes off the magnet on road bumps.
It is an excellent mount from an excellent concept.
The only problem is the the M8 has a curved back that presents minimal contact with the holder. This means that the magnets in the holder are not strong enough to hold the phone securely - even with the larger of the two metal plates. Even minor road bumps will send the phone flying around in the car. It should not have been placed under the M8 choices for holders.
In the end I settled for using the mini-pad which fits neatly inside the battery cover on my S5. It attaches within seconds of getting in the car merely by holding it near the mount and seems to be extremely strong. The only criticism (minor) would be that if your battery cover is very loose, the powerful magnet can actually pull it off your phone when you take your phone off of the mount.
My sceptical husband thought it would not e strong enough for the job. He is wrong! It holds firmly, with no vibration, and is so much better than the previous arrangement, heavy cushion and shiny pad, which kept on coming adrift on my sloping dashboard.
The rest of the item appears to be good quality!
Using the OSMand app - I now have an 8" Sat Nav in my car (a cheap old banger!!) that doesn't jump around - and is VERY easily removable (by me - rather than a thief!!)
My satnav is quite wide and other devices would not hold it
Best in car holder I've ever had. Real neat!
