    Just got the Galaxy S7 and am looking to upgrade my car mount. I would prefer one that mounts in a vent, and takes advantage of the S7's wireless charging capabilities. Being magnetic would be a plus.

    Any suggestions?

    I would shy away from a magnetic mount. Often you see posts on various android forums that such magnetic mounts have a negative impact on the GPS, internal compass, etc.. There are plenty of mounts out there that are not magnetic hold. Take a looksee at amazon.com and read reviews there that will undoubtedly help you decide what mount to go with. Also, do take consideration in regard to your phone case, weight/type of accessories on phone and how it will coexist with the holder.

    Good point with the nav issues stemming from using a magnetic mount. I've been using a vent clip-on for my old phone (HTC One M8) and went without a case on both (I like to live dangerously) so weight shouldn't be an issue. Plus the vents are vertical so that might help reduce any bending.

    I've heard / seen reviews on some wireless chargers that the "sweet spot" can be hard to hit, which is always going to be a risk when going with an aftermarket holder.
