So, I've been reading about the magnetic feature in order to activate the Car Mode/Desktop Mode on our Moto X. So I attempted to build a Magnetic Car Mount this weekend.
I realized that the Moto X itself had a metal band that would activate the Car Mode, however it wasn't strong enough to hold with my Magnet, so I had to place metal plate into a case and put the phone in, which that worked flawlessly. However, the metal plate bulged everywhere so the phone wasn't nice to hold anymore.
Luckily, my dad is a welder, and I worked on molding the metal plate with him, and decided I disliked my Diztronic Frost Case (On the side note, I liked the Matte Black Best). So, I decided to cut a piece out of my Diztronic case that fit with my metal plate. So now the plate curved with the case!
I inserted the metal plate into the cut out, glued it in place, and my roughly build case with a metal plate works like a charm with my Magnetic Mount setup with my Kenu Airframe. I gotta say it's one of the nicest things not to have to fiddle with anything and just take your phone off with a quick snap. This all cost me about $5 + $25 (Which is the Airframe). I'm ordering a new case and Mountek Metal Plating to reduce the thickness hoping that I won't have to cut an insert, but we'll see in the following days. I'll update it when I receive the plates.
I went autocrossing with my car, phone mounted my magnetic mount and at speeds and curves of 60-70 MPH, this thing stuck like glue!
Very pleased overall. Hopefully some of you guys will steer clear from the Griffin Dock for our phones and custom build your own mount
