WizGear Universal Air Vent Magnetic Phone Car Mount Holder with Fast Swift-Snap Technology for Smartphones and Mini Tablets, Black [link]
I searched Amazon reviews for ones that specifically mentioned Prius and ended up with this vent mount. I have it attached to the far left side of the center passenger air vent, just above the LCD screen. It works perfectly and I highly recommend it!
I use this, it blocks a vent though. I can take a picture if you like.
I highly recommend a magnetic mount. I use this one. Actually, my whole family uses them now. It's the best mount we've tried, and we've tried a lot.
The mount is a magnet, and you'll get a magnetic sticker to attach to your phone so it sticks. I adhered the magnet sticker to my phone case, to avoid damaging the phone itself. You can just pop the phone onto the magnetic mount and pop it off. No meddling with annoying levers or clips or anything.
They also make ones that stick to your windshield, in case you don't like the vent-mount setup. :)
There is no metal disk needed. The GS8 will hold to a magnet with it's naked back. Though this means rolling with no case on.
This one below holds my GS8+ and stays on the air vent in my Prius with no issues:
Got one of these that I mount in the vent by the A pillar usually. If I'm using Google maps for Navi the A/C keeps the phone cool. It's easy to move around and I also use it in my work vehicle. You need a phone case to put the little metal plates in though.
I used the CD slot type in my last car but it messed the slot up so I didn't like the way it looked when it was not in the cradle. Plus I have a double DIN Pioneer now with no exposed CD slot.
Not really a cradle but they do offer that option.

I stuck the metal plate inside the ZeroLemon cover and you don't even notice it.
Ahh fellow wazer! I gotta say though, I would totally settle for Apple maps or Google maps with the car integration instead.
In my 98 I use a vent mount with a magnetic end. Amazon Link . Basically my vents are stiff and are able to hold my phone up magnetically. Magnets on the vent, metal plate between my iPhone and case. Not sure, though, if the newer circular vents can do the same.
The magnetic mounts are the way to go. I use this variant in two cars and they work great in both for both my 6p and my wife's 5x:
I use a proclip center mount modified with a magnet. Magnet looks like this [link].
I just drilled out one of the pre existing holes on the proclip and put the magnet there. Works perfectly.
I bought a magnet phone holder from Parklea markets but they should have them at other phone places as well.
The magnet clips into your air conditioning vent and then it comes with a piece of metal you put in the back of your phone (mine sits in the phone case) and then it sticks onto the magnet while you are driving. it makes it so much easier then having bulky things attached to your windscreen
It's insanely good. Phone never falls. I bought it just for easy traveling with a rental, and decide to replace my own car mount with it. It doesn't block volume buttons. Accessing the finger print reader might depend on your car. But it takes a second to take off and back on if needed.
17 sti with a vent phone holder too.
that clip to be exact; works fine. I do find that spinning the clip every now and then helps with holding better
I just bought this for my car-- It works really well. The magnet is extremely strong:
I'm a fan of the magnetic ones like this, though vent mount might not be suitable for some cars (my dad's F150 has weird vents it won't fit on).
But if it works, it's great to just get in the car and stick it right on the mount and not fiddle with springs or clips. You do, however, need a phone with a built in magnet (samsung galaxy's have it, perhaps others) or use it with a case (the mount ships with metal discs you stick to the inside of the phone case).
I use a magnetic phone mount that sits in a vent. It's quite sturdy. It comes with 3 magnets, 2 with a sticky side and 1 without. Just slip one of the magnets between your phone case and it's ready to go.
I've had this one for a couple of months.
Works great and only dropped off once when I got rear ended hard.
Most people think that the magnet messes with the battery life, but my phone has the same battery capacity it always did.
This phone holder for your car. Have had it since March and have had 0 issues with it. I drive a pickup as well, so it gets pretty bumpy, and this thing is solid.
So bad ass to just take my phone out of my pocket and stick it there.
i use Car Mount, WizGear™ Universal Air Vent Magnetic Car Mount Holder, for Cell Phones and Mini Tablets with Fast Swift-SnapTM Technology, Magnetic Cell Phone Mount [link]
it's much better than the types that rely on sticky tape
Nope. I use a magnet car mount, something like this.
Nothing in today's smart phones are harmed by magnets. Everyone is scared of the idea of one near their smartphone because of the old days of Hard-disk drives and CRT monitors.
Heck, some smartphones have magnetic sensors for detecting nearby magnetic fields. This was taken advantage of by Google's initial Cardboard VR thing.
Best one IMO is called wizgear. It's the most minimalist and super low profile.
under 10 bucks. highly recommended

I put the metal piece you see on Amazon on the inside of my back cover. It works fine for me.
I use one of these magnetic mounts in the center vents.
Me too. I recommend this: WizGear Universal Air Vent Magnetic Phone Car Mount Holder with Fast Swift-Snap Technology for Smartphones and Mini Tablets, Black [link]
I also have a 2014 and I use This i put it on my vent, I use the bluetooth and people can hear me.
A nice scarf and glove set, slippers or slipper boots, movie tickets, a magnet vent phone holder (they're awesome) are a few ideas.
Thanks! We use these magnetic mounts and they've been great [link]
You need this thing . It's saved my ass many times and is super easy to use
For something a little more minimalist [link]
I got myself This holds the phone perfectly, lots of shit roads around me and has never slid off. Easy placing and removal.
It shows them in the picture.

This comes with a flat manet disc that you can put in any case.
I am using this one from Amazon, works great so far.

Similar to what was posted earlier, but I like being able to take it with me when I travel - it is easy to throw into a bag and will fit any rental car. I tell everyone this is the best car farkle I've ever purchased
I use a magnetic one, doesn't impact GPS or phone calls on my iPhone 6.
