    Do any of you use a mount in your car that holds your cell phone? I was looking into getting one of those for my note 5 and was curious what anybody else used it was decent.

    I use this and it works great for navigation and Android Auto. I slipped a magnet under my OtterBox and it works flawlessly. Hope this helps. http://forums.androidcentral.com/e?l...token=xxkg-d8G

    Also- vent mounts are always a bad choice!

    I'll probably look for a suction cup style mount that sticks to dash and holds the phone. I drive a van and like the phone closer to me than the windshield mount would allow

    I use this one, stays on the dash real nice. It'll come loose once a year in the heat of the summer.

    Why do you say that? I love my magnetic vent mount. Only complaint is it doesn't hold well with the OtterBox Symmetry but that's a case design issue because it works well with the commuter.

    I recently tried a vent mount, but it totally blocked my vent and the plate I put into my case nullified wireless charging and Samsung Pay so I had to take it out.

    I use this, was wary of vent mounts as well but window mount is too far and I didn't want to mar the dash with any adhesive, vent has been fine...

    Qi-Infinity Fast Wireless Car Charger Dock; 1.5A (2A Max, 10 Watt) For Samsung S6 Edge/Note5 & Compatible with Qi-Enabled Devices https://www.amazon.com/dp/B018INZ10O...cUvbUpU5632734

    Wireless Quick Charge works great, I've had an issue with regular charge where if I'm using GPS and streaming music through Bluetooth I'm running at a power deficit while charging, with this I can do all of that and still get a full charge. Charges through my Speck case...

    I won't use the magnet mounts, I've heard they screw with the screen, making dead spots where you can't write.

    I just got this one today https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01...droidcent08-20 Works flawlessly and it goes in the CD slot which is never used so it's not taking up other space. Previously I had the https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00...droidcent08-20 which worked just as well but was more bulky and relied on the ratchet action to make sure it was secure. I'd recommend either of these if you don't use your CD player anymore.

    I get that. I just swap the phone into a different case to mount it in the car and then back to my normal case when I'm not driving.

    I got this one from ShopAndroid: iBOLT sPro2 Kit - Android Car Mounts - ShopAndroid. Oddly, it says that it won't work with the Note5, which doesn't make sense to me, since it holds my Nexus 6P perfectly.

    I have a CD mount for our other car that has a CD player, it's real sturdy, flawless, but I put an aftermarket in my pick up and there is no CD slot. The iOttie dash mount is perfect for me it keeps the phone close enough to operate and I plugged an Anker Bluetooth adapter into the head unit for hands free.

    I have used everything from cup holder mounts to vent mounts and other magnet type mounts. Was considering the Caseco 360:

    but went with the iOttie dash mount for my 05 explorer sportrac and love it after 24 hours. Doesn't rattle, etc.
    iottie easy one touch 3. Not perfect but damn near close.

    I made a holder for my Note 5 from plexiglass. It attaches to a disc on the dash with a suction cup. I took the coils out of a wireless charger and put it behind the holder. Now, I just drop the phone in and it charges while I drive and use it.
