The versatile, long-necked design of the MAGWDM makes it an ideal choice for vehicles with a deep-set dash and windshield.
Scosche's magicMOUNT makes mounting a smartphone or media device in your car so easy. Just suction-mount the heat/cold-resistant MAGWDM mount to your car dash or windshield, 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 MAGWDM's long bendable neck and the cradle-free mount allow you to position your device any way you need it for safe interaction in your car. If you prefer a magicMOUNT with a shorter bendable neck, you'll want to check out Scosche's MAGHDGPS.
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):
I mounted the Magic Mount to the left side of my windshield to allow the use of my phone as a GPS, and I've consistently been disappointed with the product. The mount itself is spectacular; the long neck makes it very flexible and puts the phone in a perfect position. However, the magnetic holding mechanism fails to hold my phone reliably. I have a Samsung J3 with a relatively slim case, so it's not a particularly heavy phone, and I have the magnetic plate attached to my phone under the case. If I take the time to carefully position it on the mount so it lines up perfectly it's more likely to stay, but the whole thing is a headache. And forget about charging your phone in the mount, the extra stress from the cable makes it impossible for the phone to stay mounted even when using the cable retention clip on the mount to take the worst of the weight off of the phone.
Pros: Flexible mount, versatile
Cons: Phone won't stay in place
The mount is easy to use however the magnet does not work through my phone protector had to ditch it to make the mount work properly
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Magnets are not as strong as they should be
Needed an easy to use mount for the iPhone 6 plus so I could use GPS app. Magnet is strong and has never fallen off. However, I did not attach the plate to my phone, just taped it to the case so it would be easy to move to another case. Long arm makes it easy to get in a good position for viewing.
Pros: Works well and holds phone easily
Cons: Get some vibration but that is vehicle fault. Would be neat if they could come up with a solution for vehicle vibration.
Bought this so I could replace my GPS in my car with Google Maps on my phone. I started out with the small magnet behind the back of the case but ended up going to the large cause my phone is 5.5'', just seemed to hold better.
Pros: The magnets are very strong and holds the phone in place without a problem.
Cons: The arm is a little hard to adjust when you have it mounted already, so taking it down then readjusting will help. Also I'm huge on keeping my phone light so putting the large magnet in the phone wasn't ideal for me, but worth it in the long run to get the extra hold to the mount.
Made my life easier and my car more organized. My iPhone 5 sticks well to the magnet on the window mount. I attached the larger of the two magnet metal plates to the inside of the casing. It is very thin and you can't even tell or feel it inside. The window mount stick well to the window. I wish it was a bit longer.
Pros: Sticks we'll in any place.
Cons: Needs stronger magnet
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.

Installation: This magnetic smartphone system consists of a suction-cup, magnetic "MagicMount" and a magnetic "MagicPlate". The MagicMount is a magnetic window mount which adheres to your vehicle's window with an integrated suction-cup.

Two MagicPlates are included; one small for smartphones or smaller GPS units, and one large for tablets or larger GPS units. The MagicPlate adheres to the back of your device or case with 3M tape. The other side of the MagicPlate is a magnetic which magnetically attaches on to the installed MagicMount.
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 system for any device with an external hard drive (iPod Classics, Zunes, etc.).

I already have one of these mounts and love it, so I decided to buy one for my daughter and wife for their car. [ SEAN Dec 17, 2015 ]
