Dash Mount for Iphone 5

Received and installed my new, and cleanest install, of my Iphone 5 mount. I hate wires, or anything of the sort, or anything to large of size. I opted out of Navigation for my car and this was the smallest, cleanest, most simple thing I could find. I will probably hardwire my phone charger to the center dash at some point, but for now, my phone is charged at work and home anyways. Enjoy!

The pictures are not that great for now, Ill be busting out the DSLR soon for some good photos.

The product is called Steelie Car Mount and can be found at www.niteize.com

Little one is the magnet that attaches to phone, other to the dash

Yes they have that as well, just the magnet for the tablets is larger.

Thing is alot stronger than I thought, really takes a pull to get it off. Does not move at all over our horrible roads out here in NY.

It does not move around when pressed, as long as you are using a touch screen phone. I would imagine if you had to press an actual button, it may, and i mean may, move. It is just two magnets, works great

Definitely a clean job, looks better horizontal.

But not sure I'd do it myself if I didn't have nav. I would prefer there be nothing I think.

Looks very clean, but is it safe to be putting a magnet on the phone? Can't the hard drive take damage?

What's that in your windscreen?

Perfectly fine to use a magnet on the phone. Does not effect anything. I am a firefighter so those are my lights.

Would mounting it on top of the dash work? Having the magnet attach at an angle?
