Between navigation, podcasts, music, door openers and the like, smartphones are an indispensable asset for drivers. They’re also potentially dangerous: every time you look at the screen, you’re more likely to say “Watch out for that telephone pole!” What you need is a mount that will help keep the phone at eye level so you can better keep your eyes on the road.
In order to stay on the right side of the law, it is better: more and more states have passed laws stricter laws against distracted driving, which restrict the use of your phone while driving. A holder can help you hold onto it better, as it should keep you from actually picking up the phone while you’re behind the wheel.
These things come in all shapes and sizes. Some suck on your windshield, others get stuck on or in front of your dashboard. Some are magnetic, some charge your phone – you get the idea. Read on to discover the absolute best phone holders for every car (and driver).
Who I am and how I tested these mounts
I have been driving a car since 1984 and have been evaluating technical products professionally since 1990. So you could say I have a bit of experience here. I’ve also advocated having a phone holder for as long as I can remember – it’s one of those things I don’t shut up about, like pickleball and using a password manager – because it’s incredibly unsafe to have with you while driving fumbling around with the phone. It would be bad enough if you got into an accident, but it would be even worse if you got into an accident Me.
I tested these mounts in a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica and a 2019 Kia Sportage and was impressed with how easy they were to install, how securely they stayed in place while driving, and how easy they made installing and, er, removing my phone made possible. It’s hard to say how well any of them will work every However, look for user reviews that mention your brand and model.
I use an iPhone 13, so the product list includes several MagSafe compatible options. But almost any phone can work with a magnetic mount, provided the mount is equipped with a metal plate or ring that can be placed inside your phone case. (Most do.) However, keep in mind that this approach may break wireless charging if your phone supports this option.
