If you are like me and like to take an adventure in your Speedster and use your GPS on your phone then here is a quick and easy solution for a phone holder. 

Buy these.


Duct tape to the back side of the dash, use another magnet and JB weld it to a el cheapo case and Tada, phone holder. Made one for my 981 as well for my upcoming road trip to Branson this Sat.

Nope.  The magnetic field isn't strong enough and it's static.  An EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse), such as that caused by a nuclear explosion, is a moving field, which induces a pulse of high current that fries circuits.

I thought magnets would hurt the solid state memory chips (and possibly other components) of cell phones?

Most cellphones today have a coil in them for wireless charging, so I doubt it.

Video cassettes, audio cassettes, and magnetic strips on credit cards are all sensitive to magnets though.

Thank you James, I will use your solution with the magnet for my audio installation, I have a bluetooth amplifier with a wired remote control (without head unit), so this magnet is also the perfect solution for the remote control (I could also hide the remote behind the dash after use).
