Best Car Mounts for Google Pixel and Pixel 2
The Google Pixel and Pixel 2 series are beautiful, dependable phones that get updates years longer than the majority of Android devices. If you want to keep your 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!
Spigen Kuel A201 Premium Magnetic Air Vent Mount
Car mounts don’t get much easier than this: hide the included magnetic plate in your phone case — or stick it to the back of your phone — then hold your phone against the mount. Magnets will hold it in place while you drive, then you can just grab and go; no hassling with clamps or cradles! It even comes in three colors.

Magnets with a curve
Nite Ize Original Steelie Dash Mount Kit
Making sharp turns and hitting potholes? Nite Ize’s magnet is super strong and the concave magnetic dot moves around the mount’s ball mount to prevent it from falling off. This magnetic mount boasts a bold look, and it gets the job done.

I’ve always been partial to Spigen’s Kuel magnetic mounts, 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, but if you don’t want a magnetic mount, the iOttie Easy One Touch 4 is adaptable, dependable, and will grip your Pixel tight as you head down that backroad “shortcut” with all the potholes.
