Our take on the Scosche MAGDM magicMOUNT™

by Alexander Hrabe
Scosche

Magnetic attachment

Scoche's magicMOUNT makes mounting a smartphone or media device in your car so easy. Just apply the heat/cold-resistant, adhesive-backed mount to a convenient spot on your car dash, then stick the included MagicPlate™ onto the back of your device. Scoche gives you two ultra-thin sizes that hide easily behind a protective case or battery cover. Once you apply the MagicPlate, you simply place your device onto the  magicMOUNT and it stays put.

The MAGDM's adjustable, cradle-free mount allows you to position your device almost any way you need it for safe interaction in your car.

Nice Mount

Written By KenM, Wilmington, IL on Thursday, September 25, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Small, unobtrusive mount. Holds the phone really well and was a breeze to install. So far no issue with the adhesive backing as someone else had mentioned. Placed the larger plate between the phone and the case so can be much less precise about phone placement.
Pros:
Small, holds phone well.
Cons:
None so far

Best product for car

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The Scosche magnetic car mount is the best product that I have purchased for my car this year. My iPhone is very secure (even driving thru bumps and holes on the street) it looks very cool on my dash board and is very easy to remove the phone when I need it. No drawbacks or issues with this product...
Pros:
Everything is fine with this product
Cons:
None

Magic Mount

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Just installed in my 2005 Town car, very pleased with it. Only took a few minutes to install and the phone stays in place with no problem. I used the large metal clip and just put it between my otter box case and the phone.
Pros:
Small size you don't notice the Magic mount when phone is not on it.
Cons:
None

great mount

Written By MJK, Roxborough, Colorado on Tuesday, September 02, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I've been working my way through many phone mounts that do not require some level of clipping your phone in and out or some snake like mount to the windshield. This mount is small and so convenient to use with the simple magnet connection. No clips, no adhesive backing that you need to clean to get to work again.
Pros:
easy on/off connection method for phone to mount

Magic Mount No Stick

Written By Mike T, Thiells NY on Sunday, August 31, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The mount installed easily onto the dash of my 2011 Toyota Tacoma. The magnet works great holding the phone in place right in front of you for easy access. Problem is I left the phone attached to the mount by accident when I went into the office on a warm morning. I went out at lunch to grab my phone, only to find the phone(still attached to the mount) were on the floor. I was disappointed. to say the least. The mount was properly attached per the directions and the surface was properly cleaned as advised.
Pros:
Easy to install. The magnet works great.
Cons:
Mount fell off after several hours with phone attached.

Great Product

Written By Shawn P, Williamstown, NJ on Saturday, August 30, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have to say I was suprised a week into having this mount that it holds as good as they say the product should. The magicmount allows you to stick the adhesive side to anywhere in your vehicle no matter the curves or weird angles! And the best part about it is it holds! I didnt think it would be as great of a product but I trust Crutchfield and everything they have, whenever I need to use my gps on my phone I drop the magnet right between the phone and the case, and in no time im on my way and have my phone right in my sight. Otherwise I use it to keep my ipod in front of me so I dont lose it as im driving around. If your looking for something for safer handsfree talking or anything that you need to keep your phone or ipod in sight I definitely suggest you get the scosche magicMOUNT.
Pros:
Ability to stick to any surface. Keeping the object attached to the mount with only a magnet.
Cons:
None.

Magnetic Mount

Written By ZigLoader, Fresno, Ca on Friday, August 29, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
At first I wasn't sure this would hold my phone securely, but it holds just fine. During usage, my cell phone didn't move/slide at all. The mount's magnet and rubber allows the phone to stayed nice and put. However, I did have a problem with the adhesive base. After a few days in the heat, the adhesive separated from the base. The bonding surface was clean and dry before I affixed it, and that side held fine; the separation came between the tape and the mount base. I had some stronger double-sided tape and that did the trick. If you run into this and can't find a suitable substitute for tape, you might want to try some other type of adhesive. Just remember to consider the surface you want to attach the base to.
Pros:
Strong magnet, even through phone case.
Cons:
Base adhesive may not hold in high temperatures.

3 questions already asked

Is there any way the magnetic field could damage or interfere with an iPhone? [ Kerry  Sep 07, 2014 ]
6 answers
  • Kerry, I asked an Apple store rep. and he said the new phones are not effected by magnets unless extremely powerful. They are built off different principles nowadays. My Iphone often sits in my pocket next to a strong money clip magnet most of the day also. I have had no issues with this mount and find it to be the most convenient mount out there. I sometimes hold the bottom of the phone if I am pressing on it a lot. I used the large magnet option, but they give you a smaller one that may work also but not sure, I would probably stick with the larger to give the most hold. I purchased one for my wife's vehicle. The key is to mount the base to a clean, as flat as possible dry spot and apply well so it stays on. If not, there are ton of heavy duty double sided tapes out there to start over. [ Matthew   Sep 08, 2014 ]
  • So far so good. No interference whatsoever. [ Leopoldo   Sep 08, 2014 ]
  • I doubt it. I put the magnet between the case and the phone. There was no problem with the phone sticking to the mount and no phone interference problems noted. [ MICHAEL   Sep 08, 2014 ]
  • I don't know the answer to that. [ Monica   Sep 08, 2014 ]
  • I own an HTC One X, my wife has a Samsung Galaxy III mini. No problems with either. We both like it. I don't imagine there would be any issues with the iPhone. The mount comes with 2 adhesive plates, black (1" sq. & 1.75" x 2.5"). [ Eduardo   Sep 08, 2014 ]
  • No.but the sticky strip is not too its name.my phone kept coming off.I hope crutchfield knows? [ EDWARD J   Sep 08, 2014 ]
How well do the magnets work through a case? I've got a life proof case on my iPhone 5s. [ Aaron  Aug 16, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question. [ Krissy Staff  Aug 18, 2014 ]
what are the dimensions of the mounting surface? [ Darrell  Aug 13, 2014 ]
5 answers
  • It's about 2" x 2" [ Gordon   Aug 16, 2014 ]
  • Thanks - that helps - limited places to mount it in my car [ Darrell   Aug 15, 2014 ]
  • 1" by 2" [ Brenda   Aug 15, 2014 ]
  • The part that adheres to the dash is 1 1/8" inches by 2" [ Phillip   Aug 15, 2014 ]
  • The magnetic surface on which you mount your phone or tablet device is 1 3/4" square. The magnet is very strong so don't worry about your device falling off. I guess it would go flying in a violent stop but pretty secure otherwise. I've used it for my iPhone and iPad Mini with no problems. The only grip I have about this item is the adhesive that attaches it to your dash, in hot weather the temperature in your car gets very hot and adhesive becomes soft and will come off the dash etc. [ PALMER   Aug 14, 2014 ]
