Nite Ize Steelie Vent Mount (with a caveat)

Nite Ize Steelie

Need a way to leverage your phone so that you can use it as a GPS in your car? Check out the Nite Ize Steelie Vent Mount. It’s small and portable, so you can travel with it easily and use it in rental cars. It works with magnetism.

You attach a magnetic disc on the back of your phone (I attached mine right to my case), then it sticks to the ball on the Steelie. It goes on and off easily and you don’t have to struggle at all to get it off. I really like the minimalist design and the shiny silver ball looks cool. Great for road trips and slipping in your bag to clip to a rental. It also works great as a stand to watch movies, type with an external keyboard, and face time.

******** UPDATE ********

Be aware that the magnet on the back of your phone can render your credit cards useless! I couldn’t figure out why suddenly none of my credit cards worked (they all had to be keyed in by hand) and then I realized the magnet was messing with the strips on the cards. So–not as useful to me as it was and major pain to have to get all my cards reissued. I guess if you keep your phone separate from your cards it wouldn’t be a big deal, but that’s not practical for me. The only solution for me is to keep the case as an extra in my glove box and use it for road trips that way. Not as an everyday type thing.
