    Got in my car today, placed my phone in its holder .... And the holder fell apart. Lovely.

    In about two months of ubering, this was the second mount to fail. So I started my day $45 in the hole after visiting a truck stop for another.

    I note that each holder is a unique design. The new one holds the phone using a mighty magnet. Claiming to be "trucker tough," and costing double what the previous types did, I hope it lasts.

    So ... What moun
    ts work for you?

    (If this one fails, I just might Velcro my phone to the dash!)

    In my opinion this is by far the best car phone holder I've ever used. Works amazing fits any car vent and is strong enough to hold a 10 inch tablet also crazy cheap $15 at Wal mart and there's nothing to break

    RAM-Mount bolted directly to the frame of the car. Suction cups in Florida are a joke and everything else is cheap junk by comparison. I'm convinced I could get into a head on collision with the space shuttle and my phone would still be mounted to what's left of my civic.

    Eww, horrible reviews. Apparently the rubber melts into the CD player. I use a similar one but with the vent clips. It doesn't grip the vent very well but it's better than 3M'ing it to the dash.

    Rubber? There's no rubber. It's all plastic. Seems pretty heat resistant to me.

    Looks like a Prius. :p I have a RAM mount with the base attached to the passenger seat bracket.

    I have this one also. Actually I have two of them. One in my car, one in my truck. Magnets are awesome. They make other mount options as well. Suction cup, air vent, etc. I haven't had an issue with anything melting. Who listens to CD's anymore? Think I paid $10-$12.

    That is also the one I use with my LG G5. I've had it for ~6 months now and it has worked flawlessly. There is a spot in my RAM 1500 where it fits perfectly and it has never fallen off. When you get in, you just "slap" your phone in-between the grips and the spring-loaded mechanism will then clamp down on your phone. When you want to pull you phone out, you just "pinch" the ends of the mechanism and the phone will release immediately. Very handy, quite sturdy, adjustable.

    http://www.proclipusa.com/ I've used these mounts for 3 different vehicles and 2 different phones. A little more expensive than a lot of mounts but so easy to change it if you upgrade your phone. Comes in 2 parts. One specific for the vehicle and one for the phone and most vehicles it has a couple different mounting locations.

    I second on this mount. I am using one and I brought mine from Best Buy but you can also get this same mount from WalMart cheaper.

    It haven't fail me yet and the magnet on it is pretty strong.
