Easy ways to mount your phone in your car

Easy ways to mount your phone in your car

We all love our smartphones, but using these devices while driving is extremely dangerous. In some states, it's even illegal.

Even if you don't text while you drive, there are tons of things on your phone that can distract you. Alerts from your favorite apps, emails from work, navigating with GPS and even skipping songs on your playlist can all take your eyes off the road, which could result in an accident.

Of course, the safest place for your phone while driving is out of sight, out of mind. But, we all know that sometimes we really do need our devices to help us get to where we're going.

For those cases, a car mount for your phone is essential. These gadgets attach to your car's dash, vents, windshield, etc., and keep your smartphone easily visible.

Magnet mounts

Pretty much every smartphone ever made has a metal backplate, usually steel, which means it's easy to affix to a magnet. Magnet mounts have adhesive bottoms that attach to your dashboard. Their magnetic tops are powerful enough to hold your phone steady, even while jostling over rough road. But you can also just pull the phone right off when you arrive at your destination.
