Our take on the Scosche MAG12V magicMOUNT™

by Alexander Hrabe

Scosche MAG12V

Scosche's magicMOUNT™ makes mounting a smartphone or media device in your car so easy. Plug it into your car's 12-volt power port and you can use the integrated USB port for charging. You'll need to stick the included MagicPlate™ onto the back of your device, but Scosche gives you two ultra-thin sizes that are easy to hide behind a protective case or battery cover. Once you apply the MagicPlate, simply place your device onto the heat/cold-resistant magicMOUNT and it stays put.

The MAG12V's bendable neck and the cradle-free mount allow you to position your device any way you need it for safe interaction in your car.

Magnetic Smartphone Mount: The Scosche MagicMount is a new magnetic mounting system for conveniently mounting smartphones and more. Just hover your device near the magnetic surface and it instantly locks securely in place. Its sleek cradle-free design uses high-powered magnets to secure your device where you use them most. Place your device at any angle for convenient viewing.

12V Charger: Part of the Scosche MagicMount system is a 12-volt car charger which plugs into your vehicle's cigarette lighter or 12V power port. The 12-volt charger has a USB (type-A) port used to connect your mobile device's USB cable in order to charge the battery of your mounted device. The USB charging port is rated at 7.5W/1.5A.

Installation: This magnetic smartphone system consists of a 12-volt car charger with flexible arm, magnetic bracket, and two magnetic plates. The 12-volt car charger plugs into your vehicle's cigarette lighter or 12V power port. The magnetic bracket mounts to the flexible arm of the 12-volt charger. There are two magnetic plates; one small for smartphones or smaller GPS units, and one large for tablets or larger GPS units. The magnetic plate adheres to the back of your device or case with 3M tape. The other side of the magnetic plate joins to the installed magnetic bracket on the 12-volt charger's flexible arm. Once your mobile device is mounted, you can connect your device's USB cable to the 12-volt charger's USB (type-A) port to charger your device's battery.

Angle Adjustment: Once your device is installed on the MagicMount, you can extend, angle, swivel, rotate, or tilt your device for the best viewing angle.

Compatibility: The Scosche MagicMount system works with Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablets, portable GPS navigators, and other compact portable devices.

Note: Scosche does not recommend using the MagicMount for any device with an external hard drive (iPod Classics, Zunes, etc.).

Great for holding any mobile device

Written By Carl, New York on Tuesday, October 07, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I purchased this to allow me to hold my cell phone, iPod, and GPS. The MAG12V magicMOUNT works perfectly. It only comes with two metal plates, but more are easy to come by. This is a piece of cake to install and it's very solid in the power port. The magnet holds all three devices extremely well with no sliding at all even when there is an attached cord for powering the device... which incidentally, the integrated USB port makes very handy. This is easy to use and works perfectly !
Easy to use. Does exactly what it's supposed to. Holds all devices securely.

Excellent product to hold your hand held device.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I have tried other devices but the Scosche Magic-Mount is by far the best product that meets my needs. It easily mounts in the cigarette or 12 volt port and actually stays securely in place. The magnet makes it simple to remove and/or adjust the hand held devise (in my case an iPhone) to either a horizontal of vertical position. It is especially handy when using my iPhone GPS APP. I liked this product so well that after trying it out, I immediately placed an order for additional units to be given as birthday or Christmas presents to friends or family members.
Easy to set up and the magnets do hold my iPhone securely.
No cons whatsoever.

Cant Get Much More Basic Than This.

Written By g00glyeyes, Pittsburgh, PA on Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Honestly, I don't know why I didn't think of this. So easy to use you don't even need instructions. Holds very well, especially with the Pittsburgh roads. I have one in my car and one on my bike.
Great Hold
