Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works good, but feels awkward in my hands I really liked how I could adjust the iPhone screen to face me. But here are some problems... 1) the magnet on your phone sticks out so much and it feels awkward in my hands 2) the magnet makes phone slides on a hard surface 3) the magnet has to be placed right in the middle of the phone. Otherwise the phone tilt while driving. I have iPhone 6 Plus, so smaller phone might not have this issue. 4) the magnet won't stick to the silicon cover as the instruction states, so you may need to purchase a new case. I ended up returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't expect to like it Ok so I am taking zero points off for my own mistake. You MUST center the magnet onto the back of your phone or phone case! If you put it too high, your phone or your phones charging cable might hit your radio's touch screen if you've got one. It clips into the bent. I thought it would make my bent unusable of break it but nope! Glad I saw this in the store. Actually a salesperson gave me a good review of it so I got it since I was saving $30 on a Thule phone case right next to it that she also pointed out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought the vent mount steelie so can change it from car to I bought the vent mount steelie so can change it from car to car. I used it recently when 4WD in desert on steep rollercoaster, washboard road fraught with quad drivers and free range steers. My parking lot card attached in plastic pouch on dash was shaken out of its holder but not my GPS/phone holding on via steelie vent attachment. Never lost my way! Great device!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a superbly designed, practical, innovative and attra This is a superbly designed, practical, innovative and attractive device for mounting a smartphone or tablet in your car. But be sure to READ THE INSTRUCTIONS MANUAL, which clearly spells out, albeit in the teeniest, tiniest print, all the do's and don'ts of attaching the two components of the kit. More importantly, the user is specifically warned NOT to put the magnet near credit cards, computer hard drives, pacemakers, floppy discs, cassette tapes, video tapes, CRT (picture tube) TVs, monitors and displays. It will wipe the magnetic strip on a credit card clean of its operative info and cause varying degrees of damage to the other items listed. Smartphones and tablets are not affected, however.Don't be fooled by the size of the small magnet that you attach to the back of your mobile device. It's powerful. My iPhone 6s, wearing a Mophie Juice Pack Plus is almost 10 oz, and is held so tightly into the metal ball, that it takes a tiny bit of effort to remove it from the mount, nothing extreme, but enough to let you know that when joined together, the attachment is very secure.Some people have commented that the magnet affects the compass and or the GPS capability of their device. I've had no such problem with either of those features. Not in iOS Maps, nor Google Maps, nor Waze nor the iOS Compass app.Interestingly, the small, shiny steel 1" diameter ball and mount, with my iPhone removed, has a simple, attractive elegance that makes all the claw-like/vise-grip phone and tablet car mounts look gross and obtrusive.My first thought, after installing the kit and realizing how well it works and looks, was "why didn't someone think of this before?" Then it occurred to me that they most likely did, and I'm just late to the table.Best idea, both in design and practicality, of any mobile device car mount I've used or researched.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good idea but... For very light phones this is OK but it can't maintain position for heaver phones or GPS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snap that Always on the fence on buying the phone mount for the car. And this vent mount was just awesome without having to stick gooey stain on the car coz of the sticker. And the magnetic snap on /off phone is even easier.
