    Default Tetrax magnet on SGN

    Has anybody tried the tetrax mounts yet with their galaxy nexus? Before I purchase one I'm curious of two things.

    1. How well does the the magnet stick to the battery door since its textured? I have an extra cover that I'll use simply for this.
    2. Does the magnet interfere with the NFC at all?

    Someone out there has had to try one of these on their Galaxy Nexus! Here is the Textrax I'm referring to in case you don't know what I'm talking about:

    They are only 3 or 4 bucks shipped on verizon's website or just call in and order one. I went ahead and ordered the Tetrax and remain pessimistic that it's not going to work. Someone from another forum said he didn't have to good of luck. If it don't work I'm going to just put it on a smooth case.

    My biggest worry is it interfering with the NFC and/or compass.

    I was very interested in using this mount so I bought a FIXWAY. I installed it this afternoon and I also tried it out on my tab 10.1 as well. Pics are attached so you can see how it looks.

    The mount seems nice. Overall I am very happy with it. The mount works in landscape and portrait but if I have any cords attached in the bottom then the phone becomes too heavy for the mount and it only holds in the portrait orientation. I also mounted the metal button pretty high on the phone so if the button was more centered on the phone then I'm sure it would balance better.

    Here is the FIXWAY on my dash:


    The fix way can be detached whenever and the only thing left is the metal square that is left fixed


    The metal button on the back of my nexus case


    Nexus in Portrait


    Nexus in Landscape


    Button on Tab 10.1


    Tab 10.1 in Portrait


    Tab 10.1 in Landscape


    If you have any questions or any image requests let me know and I will try my best to hep you out

    There has been a few pages of discussion about this on XDA forums. Without a case the two sided tape will not stick to the back of the Nexus very well. After a short period of time it will come off.

    The Tetrax system is great overall but you'll need a case if you plan on using it for any significant period of time.

    Does anyone know if the magnet will mess with the NFC at all?
    I know it stops the internal compass from working while connected, but thats understandable...

    I just dont want any lasting/permanent damage done...

    thanx

    Watch the video from Tetrax's FAQ page. About a minute in, they demonstrate how the magnetic field works. I tried it myself and it was proof enough for me that my device would be safe. NFC still works to buy my coffee. Great mount.

    Do you think it would stick to a TPU style case?

    So do you have to buy a mount unit and an accessories kit? Or does the part that sticks on the phone come with the purchase of the mount?

    I have debated on this mount for years since I had the soundgate mount.
    35.00 is a lot for this puppy but it may work better then my grip it cup holder mount.
    Problem I have is finding a spot to locate it on my dash....

    the one vent on the right is really loose, but also they are really round.

    was thinking of mounting it on the right side of the radio.
