Description

This is my favorite solution for in-car phone mounts: compatible with every cars, does not block visibility, dead simple to attach/remove, phone is mountable in horizontal or vertical position, etc.

Here is a short demo video:
UPdate #20160411: added an even stronger rectangular version for 5x magnets with a screw-in spike. 

Materials and methods

- 8 pcs 12x2 mm cylindrical neodym magnets
- a magnetic holder compatible phone case (for iPhone 6* I do recommend Spigen's Thin Fit Hybrid case with a thin metal plate)
