Scosche'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. Scosche 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.
Note: Scosche DOES NOT recommend using magicMOUNT with devices that have a built-in hard disk drive (HDD) such as iPod Classics, Zunes, etc.
Average Customer Review(s):
really good product
Holds strongly even off road. iPhone 6s with rubber Crave case. So far holding well on an older worn dashboard
Would give it 5 stars, but it doesn't mount well to curved surfaces. The plastic is just too hard to bend and retain the shape needed for the curve.
Great little mount. Stuck it to a flat surface and have had no problems with it. Has held my older Android phone even over rough gravel roads.
Magic mount is nonintrusive and clean on my car dashboard. I have one for me and one for my wife
Best mount I could have chosen. My case is a dreem Fibonacci and because it is magnetized everywhere, I can turn my phone any way on the magicMOUNT.
Mount does not stick to the dash

Exactly what I was looking for.
Very pleased with this product. It supports my iPhone 6 with the heavy otter box case and was kind of worried it wouldn't be strong enough to mount my phone up. Plus, this combined with my new Jensen reciever on my basic dash a much more aesthetic look.
Please with the product but the magnet could be a little stronger to secure the device to the base through a protective case and the arm on the base could be slightly longer.
Pros: Great concept to free up vent space.
Cons: Need stronger magnet as bumps shift device on the base and slightly longer arm on the base.
Didn't stick to my car. Question, will the magnet mess up the phone?

I was looking for something to hold my phone so I could hear Google Maps and Mapquest driving directions. This is the perfect solution!
Pros: Small and a strong magnet. It doesn't affect my line of sight.
This magnetic phone holder mounts very easily and holds my iPhone 6 with the otter box case on it easily! Very convenient! Also is not too bulky so it doesn't take up a lot of space!
Pros: Easy to install. Inexpensive. Works.
Cons: None that I can think of!
It is exactly as described. After one week it sticks to my dash and the magnet is strong enough to hold my iPhone 6 in place (it hasnt fallen off yet.
Pros: Works as described
Cons: Need to find out how to get extra metal plates for when my phone case wears out. The magnet is in the base attached to my car so ideally they will sell replacements to stick to your new case or second phone
Works great . came with two different size metal plates big and small. Small for the phone and big one for phone case . I have a otter box case and put the big metal plate on the back of the case behind the rubber outer case and it works great . no bumps in the street or the bass from my system can make it fall ..
Pros: Easy to install . stays in place no matter how hot or cold and it works great .. Phone stays right where you put it ...
Cons: No problems that I can tell . could use to big plates instead of one small and one big.. Do not put directly on phone will leave sticky residue on phone . rubbing alcohol Will remove
I have tried numerous suction-cup devices and they never last very long. With my each of my cars having several drivers, I can't customize just one to my liking. This cell phone/GPS holder is fairly discrete when not in use and the magnet is strong enough to hold what I need - phone and GPS. The thin metal plates don't really detract from my cell phone use when not in the car and I plan on ordering more plates for my wife and child for their phones.
Pros: small and inconspicuous on the dash board magnet is strong and holds device securely
Cons: self-adhesive on metal plates didn't stick to cell phone case (had to use Gorilla Glue to properly adhere) not sure how magnet would affect iPod so haven't tried on that device
Stayed stuck on my dash for less than 24 hours!
Works very well
Pros: Holds phone secure
A cinch to install, keeps my phone up high enough to take a picture/video of the road ahead, just in case. Very handy device.
GREAT BEST CELL PHONE HOLDER EVER!
Pros: IT DOES WHAT IT SUPPOSE TO DO AT EVERY ANGEL!
Cons: NO ISSUES WHAT SO EVER!
I saw this mount as I was looking through the Crutchfield magazine. I thought I would try it. I originally had a monstrosity hanging from the window taking up so much space for my iPhone. This piqued my interest. I received it quickly and mounted it to my dashboard. It was super easy to mount. Then I stuck the magnet supplied to the inside of the back of my phone case. I will tell you what happened just this morning as I took someone out for breakfast. I just grabbed my phone and stuck it to the mount and the guy was super impressed and thought it was the coolest thing. He now wants to get one. This has to be one of the coolest gadgets I have ever bought. It works perfectly as advertised. I don't have to readjust any clips to mount it. I just basically touch it to the mount and it sticks. I use it every time I'm in the car. It is awesome!
Pros: Ease of use. Everything!
This mount is perfect. Small easy to attach phone and when phone is not there it looks great. Spend a lot of time driving in my truck for work and had no place to put phone, this works great and also allows for a good position when using GPS on my phone. Have tried other type mounts which were large and did not hold phone tight, this works great.
Pros: Small, cheap cost and simple
Cons: Cold now, hope adhesive holds in summer, if not will put a couple of screws through it.
This mount for my phone is great. Small and convenient to use. It is not bulky and take up a lot of room on the dash plus has the ease of magnetic connection which allows attaching and detaching with one hand.
Pros: size and ease of use.
I am truck driver spending hours/days on the road,I was always looking for good cell phone Samsung mount,and I finally found it,I can place my phone any way I want to, and it's not distracted by any holding hands like other cell phone mounts has,so far this is the BEST one I had,awesome product.
I love it, its small but strong enough to hold up my iPad mini without worrying about it falling off. I love the fact that its magnetic and I dont have to mess around with adjustable sides to grip my phone I just get in my car and the magnet instantly atracts the metal plate I placed between my battery and back cover. I will definitely by more for each of my cars.
Pros: Rubber over magnet so I don't have to worry about my phone getting scratches. Thin metal plates I can place in anything to secure it to the mount
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
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
Pros: Adjustable, not noticable when phone is not there, i can use for phone and tablet
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.
Terrific product. Very well engineered. I used it as a mount for my iPhone on my motorcycle.
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
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.
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.
Hold very well
Pros: Excellent what can I say does what it says
Cons: None but it would be nice if it came with extra plates
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.
Great product very handy for gps phone use in car

good rating, good reviews.[ Aaric Jul 19, 2017 ]
Super easy to install and it works great![ Eric Nov 17, 2016 ]
I was tired of having suction cups fail on me. This one comes with a guarantee to work.[ Joseph Jul 27, 2016 ]
CJ the product advisor suggested the item. I don't want to drill holes in my car to mount my I-phone.[ Matthew Jun 24, 2016 ]
Safer to drive with instead of always looking down. Now I can look forward and do what need to be done while driving safely[ Joseph May 27, 2016 ]
Needed a replacement because i had to junk my old car and the adhesive was torn off.[ Travis John Mar 01, 2016 ]
Even through an "Otter" case back, the attraction seems to hold quite well.[ James Feb 28, 2016 ]
Easy to use, secure, affordable. Highly recommend.[ Jentri Feb 13, 2016 ]
Just what I was looking for to mount my iPhone.[ Jess Dec 06, 2015 ]
I'm not sure why you'd want to install a smartphone mount onto a video monitor but the provided self-adhesive 3M tape works well for securing the magic mount to almost any surface. Most vehicle monitors are LCD and will not be affected or damaged by the magnets. I hope that helps. My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan [ Ryan Aug 09, 2017 ] Staff
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 ]
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 Aug 18, 2014 ] Staff
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 ]
