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'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

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/B018INZ10...ag=hawk-future-20&ascsubtag=UUacUvbUpU5632734

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 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 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 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.
