We’ve mentioned a couple of air vent mounts in the past, each one with a different feature, but all of them are cradle mounts. However, there is an easier way to mount your iPhone to your car so you can set up and go.
TechMatte’s MagGrip is a magnetic mount for your car’s air vent so you can simply set it on the base and drive off. There is no need to clip it or snap it to your iPhone 6. When you want your device back, pull it away from the magnetic base and you are done.
The magnetic mount features a four-prong mounting system with extra long prongs and adjustable tightness to fit a wide variety of car vents, although, some circular and vertical vents are not compatible.
The round base houses a super strong magnet. In order to attach your iPhone to the magnet, you will need a metal plate. The kit comes with two different metal plates. One has a 3M adhesive strip on the back so you can actually stick it to the backside of a case (or even your iPhone if you don’t care about permanently sticking a piece of metal to it). The other is just a plate, which can be slid in-between your iPhone and its case so you don’t have to worry about getting sticky adhesive all over your expensive device or accessories.
The MagGrip air vent mount is available in black, blue and red for between $9 and $11 on Amazon, depending on your color choice. Since one of the metal plates is reusable, this car mount is universal and compatible with multiple devices in the same household if you pick up the plate replacement kit for $7.
