    I bought a ne car last week and I'm going to choose a cell phone mount for my iPhone 6 in my new car. There are so many cell phone mounts on Amazon and I'm just confused which one is better.
    Any one has a nice suggestion? Just tell me your phone holder and share your using experience. Thanks~~~

    There are numerous mounts that attach to either the dashboard, air vents, windows, seams in the dashboard, or CD player slots. I have one of the "earth magnet" mounts that sits in the CD slot. For a bare phone I'd have to stick the metal plate to the back of my phone but I'm getting around that with the specific case I'm using. My CD slot is in a good place for visibility and I think that the location is the most important part.

    I always use Brodit mounts. You need to get a car specific adapter and then holder that suits your phone.

    Brodit pro clip is the best mount I've ever used. Never had it drop out and it's firm enough for using.
    You buy the clip to suit your car, then one to suit your phone.
    I had to fit one to my bosses car after I raved how good it was.

    One of the most popular mounts is Kenu. I have been using it myself.

    I was skeptical of the worth of these mounts since they are one of the more expensive options but finally gave in and got one. Definitely worth the money, solid and tailored exactly for your phone and vehicle.
