Aerb Magnetic Snap-On Windshield Dashboard Car Mount Holder

Screen Shot 2014-04-07 at 2.17.02 PMI’ve used several dashboard mounts over the years for my smartphones. They all pose various degrees of inconvenience, and even though some are easier to use than others, none of them are so easy that mounting your phone would be a spur-of-the-moment decision. This Aerb magnetic mount comes very close to that ideal.

This is a very well designed, innovative and effective smartphone dashboard mount. The mount is sturdy and made out of quality materials. It uses a small steel plate that is inserted inside your smartphone’s protection case and an in-built magnet for mounting purposes. This magnetic system allows you to mount your phone with just one hand. I was first skeptical of the effectiveness of this magnetic attachment mechanism, but after using this mount for a few days I’ve been impressed with the fact that my phone did not fall of even once.

The mount features a fairly strong suction cup. It is not the strongest suction cup that I had tested, but so far it has worked really well.

The mounting attachment can rotate through 360 degrees in its plane, and it can also tilt through a decent range out of its plane. This allows for a very wide range of viewing angles. Unfortunately, changing the viewing angle cannot be accomplished with a simple one-handed action, but requires a little bit more of fiddling. I would definitely not recommend doing so while driving.

I have tested this mount with iPhone 4S, iPhone 5S, and Galaxy S3 phones. It worked really well with all of them. I have also used it to mount an old radar detector, but since its horizontal tilting is rather limited, it was not well suited for this purpose. I had also tried to mount an old Garmin 5.5″ GPS unit, but the mount was too small for that device.

This is a great and affordable product which I would recommend to anyone looking for a simple and effective way of mounting a smartphone for in-car navigation purposes. It can also be used for mounting the smartphone at your desk, or for many other similar uses. I intend to use it as a makeshift “tripod” for some small product videography.
