I have had a bunch of different products that hold different things over the years and this is by far the best one to date!
I log over 25, 000 miles a year on the road for work and I have tried all kinds of solutions out there...The Steelie car mount system is by far the best one I found; It installs in minutes without a bunch of bulky parts that can break, it is super easy to use and see your phone from any angle, you have access to all your connections which is rare among these type of units. I thought the magnetic socket would add bulk but it really doesn't, in fact it adds a little spot for extra grip when you are holding the phone. I love mine so much I got another mount for my other car! Thanks for a truly innovative solution for securing a phone in the car.

Love the mount. Easy to use and set up. There should be an option purchase multiple bases . I have two cars and would love to have an xtra base in a kit rather than having to buy a whole unit.
This is a really great product. It fills a sector in auto modification that is not intrusive to the car owner, and it still relatively leaves a clean look. I actually own two and use it in conjunction with something I made that allows my to use any of my tablets or phones (or GPS's) with the system. It is a great product!
My only real gripe would be the lack of magnet accessories one can by if one is lost. The button that goes on the back of the device can be lost and, it would be great to be able to buy some surplus!

Love this easy versatile design...the rotating ball/magnet allows you to pivot the device in any manner/angle..one drawback to having the magnet on the back is sometimes it will demagnetize the magnetic strip on a hotel room card or credit card..I have to be diligent to keep my phone in a seperate pocket. One last note I have a Samsung Note 2 phone that has a electronic stylus..with the magnet attached creates a perfect round "deadzone" where the phone doesn't show any sketch/scribble on the screen.

This product is really awesome. The best most versatile mounting system i have ever used. because it is not simply a car mount it can be used to mount your device not only on other steelie products but also on any magnetic or steel surface. This device would have been a 5 hands down if replacement mounting magnets and adhesives were available for purchase as advertized. the lack of them may render this fabulous device useless if my case breaks or wear's out.
I love this product! I have gone through at least a half dozen smart phone holders in my Jeep Wrangler including one that broke the AC vents on my dashboard. Then I got a Steelie holder, it stuck to my dashboard in seconds and now my iphone just sticks to the metal ball! No squeezing or adjusting the holder so that my phone won't fall out. This device is awesome and rugged - I highly recommend.

This is without a doubt the most brilliant, durable and innovative item I have seen for the iPhone. This really focuses on "Safety" in the car so you dont have to hold the phone while driving. That magnet and steel ball are so strong, that you can literally do off road racing it will hold your iPhone in place. WELL WORTH THE MONEY, the only thing Nite Ize needs to do now is sell the extra magnets for those who use external battery cases. For example, I have 3 external battery packs I use so I need a magnet for each one. Selling the magnets for $5-10 ea would be no biggie and solve others issues when it comes to having multiple battery packs.
Thanks again for a quality product!!
I would give this 20 *******************!!!!!!!

I love this solution for my phone, and have had several folks ask where I found it. This is a simple, effective and attractive alternative to the horribly awkward, odd looking car phone holders on the market. Way to go Steelie! Please make more. I would like to purchase more.
I just got one of these bad boys, and they are cool, the Magnet is super strong and is hardly noticeable.
