Best Car Mounts for Google Pixel and Pixel 2 Android Central 2020
The Google Pixel and Pixel 2 series are beautiful, dependable phones that have received updates years longer than the majority of Android devices. If you want to keep your aging Pixel safe, secure, and easy to use with Google Assistant or Android Auto's standalone mode, you need a car mount you can trust to keep it from coming crashing down when you hit a pothole. Car mounts come in a wide variety of styles and types, and we have some favorites to share with you!
- Easy as 1, 2, 3, 4: iOttie Easy One Touch 4
- Best for rental cars: Trianium Magnetic Air Vent Car Phone Mount
- Adjustable magnetic head: Spigen Kuel A201 Premium Magnetic Mount
- Magnets with a curve: Nite Ize Original Steelie Dash Mount Kit
- Upgrade your CD player: Koomus Pro CD Slot Car Mount
- Go pro: ProClip
iOttie has been a leading brand for car mounts for years, and the Easy One Touch 4 is the best mount it's ever made. It's easy to use, can be positioned at just about any angle you'd ever want and can accommodate the Pixel XL or Pixel 2 XL with or without a case.
There are cheaper versions of this super compact style, but Trianium's has 6 magnets sit inside this mount instead of the usual 4. Its refined aluminum look is perfect for business travelers and other car-hopping users looking for something sophisticated yet fun.
Making sharp turns and hitting potholes? Nite Ize's magnet is super strong and the concave magnetic dot moves around the mount's ball to prevent it from falling off. This magnetic mount boasts a bold look, and it gets the job done.
Koomus's low-profile mount is easy to slip into the long-forgotten CD slot, allowing you to mount your phone in an easily visible location without damaging the old disc player. The slide-out clamp holds your phone easily and can rotate 360 degrees.
The magic of magnets
Magnetic car mounts are some of the most compact and effortless car mounts on the market. They don't wear out the way most spring-loaded mounts do and are far less bulky. I've always been partial to magnetic mounts like Trianium's, as they're easy to use with multiple phones or multiple cars. Since the Pixel and Pixel 2 lack wireless charging, you don't have to worry about the magnetic plates interfering with anything, either.
If you don't want a magnetic mount — whether because you tend to drive over pothole-riddled parkways or you just perfer the feel of a more robust car mount — the iOttie Easy One Touch 4 is adaptable, dependable, and will grip your Pixel tight as you head down that back-road "shortcut" that needed repaving in the 90s.
