The best place to mount your smartphone in your car?

Today, we’re going to help you figure out where you should mount your smartphone in your car and the best type of mount for that space. Out of all the car mounts that we’ve used, we prefer magnetic mounts because of how easy they are to use.


We’re going to talk about five locations in your car that you can mount your smartphone and the types of mount we would use for each location.


Using different car mounts, in different cars and here are the five areas where you could mount your smartphone:


1. Dashboard Holder

2. Vents Holder


4. Cup Holder


Before we go through the best place to mount your smartphone in your car, there are two questions that you’ll need to keep in mind when getting a car mount:


1. Are you mounting a small phone or a large phone?

2. Are you going to mount your smartphone all the time?


So lets get started.



On car, the cup holder mount get in the way of the gear shifter which is pretty important in the operation of his manual transmission vehicle.Cup holder mounts might work for larger vehicles like trucks because the bigger consoles. But at the end of the day,  you’re losing a cup holder. And let’s be honest, cup holders are generally very useful to store anything but cups.

Vents Holder

Vent Mounts are the best for people who don’t need to have their devices mounted in their cars all the time.  he only needs to see his iPhone if he’s navigating to a place he’s never been to. Or if he’s waiting for a call while driving. For the average person, we believe that these vent/CD mounts are the best place to mount your smartphone in your car.

To us, being able to securely and temporarily mount an iPhone seems very efficient to us. Like the rear view mirror/central dash, we’d go with a magnetic vent mount. Make sure you get one where the mount has a joint to allow you to turn your device towards you.


Our only issue with these mounts is that you’re blocking an actual vent. This might not be an issue in a place where the weather is mild but we operate in a place where snow and cold weather exists for 4-5 months out of a year so heat is very important to us.


Dashboard Holder

This is our preferred location for our smartphones. It’s out of the way and we can still keep track of directions or monitor potential phone calls.


The only reasons why we wouldn’t keep it here is if the setup would block a vent or if your device is way too big to fit in landscape mode. An iPhone 7 Plus in an mount in landscape mode is comically too large. Also, keeping your device charged 100% of the time might be a bit more cumbersome as you’ll have to thread your cable over your steering wheel.

We’d go with a magnetic mount over other mounts because of the ease of use. The mounts themselves are smaller so they take up less real estate on your windshield and you can easily change the orientation of the device.

The downsides of a magnetic mount is that it uses magnets. You either stick one to the back of your iPhone permanently or you get a case that has metal plate on the back. Depending on your device, the magnet might have an adverse effect on your device. We know for sure that magnets will effect the iPhone 6 or older but the iPhone 6s and newer are shielded a bit better so don’t go navigating using the compass on your iPhone 6 or older with a mag mount.
