No, modern smartphones and other mobile devices do not use magnetic storage media. Therefore, the magnets used for Mag’n’Mount do not negatively affect smartphones and tablets. Many phone and tablet covers that are available on the market today use magnets to close the cover.
If your phone does not have a removable battery cover (i.e. iPhones) and/or you want to mount a tablet with Mag’n’Mount, insert the Thinplate in a phone or tablet cover or a cover (not included).
My phone switches to sleep mode, as soon as it comes into contact with Mag'n'Mount. How can I prevent this?
- Some mobile phones switch to sleep mode when a magnet is detected. This function is used mainly when closing a cellphone. There are different phone settings to disable this function. Some examples are provided below:
Settings-> General -> Locks / Unlock-> Off.
If your phone uses a hall or magnetic sensor (for example, Galaxy S4 & S5) attach the Thinplate on the opposite side of the sensor. The mobile phone must be mounted that so that the hall sensor is not affected by the magnets on Mag’N’Mount.
For some phone models, the sleep mode is disabled by connecting the power supply. Alternatively, you can use a special app to prevent the phone to switch to sleep mode (E.g. magnetic-Unlocker, Invisible-Dock, docknothing, etc.)

*Some mobile devices have some ferritic inserts.
This should give you sufficient grip of your mobile device on the EasyMount mounts even without Thinplate and without using a phone case.
Devices with ferritic inserts are for examble:
Samsung Galaxy S6, S7
TomTom GO 500/5000/600/6000 GO LIVE 1000 and 1005
- Yes, you can easily mount smaller tablets with all Mag’n’Mount products. We recommend you use two Mag’n’Mount Air for mounting big tablets and/or mobile devices.
Mag’n’Mount can be used to mount other devices, such as navigation systems. To ensure perfect grip, mount the Thinplate to the back of the unit.
Mag’n’Mount was tested with the following navigation systems:
TomTom GO 500/5000/600/6000 GO LIVE 1000 and 1005.
TomTOM is using a magnetic mounting system. Therefore no other equipment is needed.
You can mount larger tablets on Mag’n’Mount air. For a secure mount, we recommend 2 to mount two Mag’n’Mount air on the vents. The Thinplates are installed in the case of the tablet. You will find below an example of this arrangement.
ASSEMBLY OF 2 PIEES Mag'N'Mount AIR
MOUNTING THINPLATES IN TABLET CASE
Remove your cell phone from the Mag’n’Mount holder by pivoting or twisting slightly to the side to minimize the potential of pulling out the Mag‘n‘Mount holder from the dashboard.
The legs of the Mag’n’Mount Classic can be bent to make the fit tighter (picture 1.)
Alternative, cut a sticker in 13mm / 0,5 inch strips. These strips can be wrapped around the mounting bracket to improve the grip.. (see Figure). Alternatively, using electrical tape (eg insulation tape) simply wrap each leg once or twice. (picture 2-3)
This can occur if your phone case is thick. To fix this issue, we recommend usingboth 2 Thinplates provided.
If you use the NFC function make sure that the Thinplate does not cover the NFC sensor.
If you use wireless charging (QI), make sure that the Thinplate does not cover the wireless charging field.
You may need to cut the Thinplate with a standard pair of scissors to avoid covering the NFC sensor or covering the wireless charging field.
Please see how to position the Thinplate on a Samsung S6 to avoid covering the wireless charging field.
