Phone mount options?

Looking for a solution for a solid phone mount instead of using my cup holder. Anyone have a good one? I have a pop socket in the back of my iPhone X but I think I can squeeze a magnet on the back for magnetic mounts. I donít want a mount covering my vents for sure.

I have used ProClip for years on all my cars. I love them and wouldn't have anything else. ProClip USA | Car Phone Holders and Dashboard Phone Mounts

Yes, they do go in front of the A/C vent for the 4Runner, but that is actually a good thing for it keeps the cell phone from over heating in the sun.

The beauty of the ProClip is it comes in two parts: one that is custom fit to the vehicle, and the second is custom fit to your cell phone. Also, they are no drill clip on installation and very sturdy.

This phone magnet works really well and I love it. Sticks near dash, close to the clock

Have a magnet sticked to phone and a case over it and magnet still runs strong

Just doesnít hold on well while doing the off road

I use this (^^^^) one in my Jeep and love it! The only problem I had with it in the Jeep and the 4Runner is eventually the adhesive gives way. I eventually just bolted it to the dash in the Jeep since the size and placement is perfect for me.

However, in the 4Runner I couldn't find a good mounting point where it was within a finger distance with my hand still on the wheel. I eventually swapped for a 67 Designs set-up which I... somewhat like. If you end up that route, don't by the Gen 2 magnetic mount. It has no magentic power and your phone will just slide off. I just ordered a Gen 3 magnetic mount from them and am hoping that works as good as the cheap mount from Amazon since I already have the new 67 Designs base bolted to the dash.

The ProClip, mentioned earlier, has no adhesive, no bolts, no drilling or other modifications. I have never had one come off or loose.

Can you update with how the 67 Designs Gen 3 performs? I've wanted to bolt in a 67 Mag mount but was turned off by the lack of "stick" reported by users... that's a no-go with my off-road use. If the Gen 3 sticks better, i'm ordering one.

I was using the Scosche mag mount until the adhesive died during this hot ass summer we're having. During the winter it worked fantastic and the mag plate attached to my iphone 12 case wasn't really noticeable. The second it turned hot, the adhesive bit the dust and now i'm debating on drilling in a mount system. Before that I was using a RAM Mount bolted in to the dash (head unit). Works well but I get tired of the arms and where they hit on the phone side buttons. 67 Designs will likely be my next mount.

Phone holder

I've been using a Lisen magnetic phone holder that I bought on Amazon for about 10 bucks. It does attach to the vent, but it sits away from the vent a couple of inches closer to me. I've had it a couple of months an so far, it has worked out great. Enough magnetic power to hold the phone while bouncing around off road, but not too much holding power to stress the vent. I keep the metal plate under a thin case on my iPhone.

Yeah absolutely. Just came in last night. Works great! WAY better than the G3. Magent power is about on par with the cheap $7 one from Amazon although much better mounting positions. Note that it is BIG though and takes up almost the entire back of an iPhone7. I have one of those 'LoveHandle' elastic things mounted on the far side of the back of my phone with the steel plate across the rest and it works sufficiently enough and overhangs the mount just a bit. If offroading shows this method not working, I'll just remove the elastic strap and let the whole phone contact the magnet. I know that'll work if this current set-up doesn't.


Looking back, I'd have done the diamond plate base, nano arm, and G3 magnet. No way I'd order a G2 for anything unless it was going to be used primarily horizontal.

I use a pro clip with the wireless charger. Been working great for a long time.

I'm using a two-part setup. A belt and suspenders solution. Engineer style.

I bolt a RAM Mounts X-Grip to an ICS FAB Dash Mount platform. The ICS mount lets me secure items to it (HAM, CB, radar detector, tablet) when I need them. However, I can add, relocate or remove them as required. All without drilling new holes in my dash.
