The $11 iOttie Easy One Touch uses your car's CD slot to hold your smartphone

Driving is dangerous enough without having your phone in your hands at the same time. If you don't have a mount for your phone in your vehicle already, it's way past time to snag one. Luckily, they're pretty inexpensive now, and you can grab iOttie's Easy One Touch Mini CD slot car mount (opens in new tab) for only $10.95 at Amazon currently. This car mount normally sells for around $19 on average and hasn't ever dropped this low before in the past.

It's called the One Touch because it is designed to lock and release your device with a simple touch. That alone should appeal to you because I've definitely had car mounts that tried to make the attachment process as difficult and painful as possible. This is a universal car mount that will fit any smartphone, even with cases, that is 2.3 to 3.5 inches wide. The cradle rotates up to 360 degrees so you can find the best possible angle from where you're sitting. It locks into your CD slot for a secure fit. Users give it 4.1 stars based on 1,569 reviews (opens in new tab).

For a slight upgrade, iOttie's iTap Magnetic Car Mount Holder (opens in new tab) is also discounted today. Now at $16.95, this model also clips into your CD slot but uses a magnetic plate to stick to your device, and today's deal saves you $8 off its regular price.
