    Default Magnetic car mount and apple cases.

    Does anyone maybe own one of those magnetic car mounts where you put a sticker on the back of the phone and use case with it? Preferably apple leather one. Just curious if that would work.

    Works great! I've used it with a 6s and both the Apple leather and silicone. Scosche mount, FWIW.

    Won't work with the smart battery case though!

    That's cool. Doesn't it make the case stick out from the phone?

    Nope! the sticker is thin, you don't know it's there at all with the case on.

    I never heard of a magnetic car? Also why mount this type of car?

    That's great! I tried another mount and still like the magnetic one better. Which did you get? Mine is the Scosche MagicMount: http://www.amazon.com/Scosche-MAGDMB...mUvbUpU2753184

    Probably nice if you want/need a thicker case and still want to use a magnetic mount. Biggest thing that makes it tough to back:

    It's tied to one phone. If I get a new phone, I need a new case. With the Scosche I can get another plate (or use one of the two it came with). The plate does stick directly to the phone.

    I'll be upgrading in September, probably to the Plus model. Your case ships in August, and would only work with my current phone for a month. There are still those who bought a 6s this past September that may be holding onto it for longer, and they may be a good target for you but I'm betting many will be updating and you'll have a case that may not work. Hopefully the new phone fits -- not sure how much change the size/shape will be

    Good luck!

    I saw a video where someone used the scosche with otterbox and it worked.

    Probably does, depending on where you put the magnetic sticky on the phone. If you attach it right to the back of the Otterbox, I'm sure it's just fine. It will be less effective if you put it on the back of the phone (where I put mine).

    Hmm, interesting. I know with no case the thing is on there like glue. With an Apple silicone it has some play. Still secure though.

    personally suggest not use magnet, it will affect the signal and your navigation system.
