Review: MagMount iPhone Car Mount for iPhone 7 and More

Gone are the days of a dedicated GPS device in your car. Now, thanks to smartphones and apps like Waze, you have a much better chance at getting somewhere on time with a phone as your navigational system. But where do you put your phone when driving? Doc Artisan offers the MagMount ($30) which is a very reasonably price for an iPhone car mount. The MagMount iPhone holder for the car uses a suction cup to stick to your dash or windshield and a magnet to hold your iPhone.

That means you need a case for your smartphone that adds some metal so the phone will stick to the MagMount. Fortunately, Doc Artisan offers several cases in the $70 to $80 range and they're made with rich, textured leather. Some are slim and comfortable. I tried a two-piece case design and found it to be a bit clunky, but it offered good protection and even had room for a credit card or ID.
