Scosche announced at CES a magnetic mounting system for smartphones in the car.
A small, thin metal plate mounts on the back of a phone case (or inside the phone case) and then it magnetically adheres to Scosche’s car mounting system (for the windshield, dash or dash surface). It securely locks the phone or a tablet or GPS.
“magicMOUNT allows our customers to use the case of their choice or no case at all with a system of powerful neodymium rare-earth magnetic mounts that provide the peace of mind that their new smartphone or tablet is secure,” said Scosche Executive VP Kas Alves.
