The NEXS1 works with your smartphone and the free Nexar safe driving app (iOS and Android) to record your drive and capture significant events. The Nexar app is used by drivers worldwide and comes with 24/7 customer support.

SCOSCHE Industries Announces Availability of Award-Winning MagicGrip Advanced Wireless Charging Mounts

OXNARD, CA (05.20.2020) – SCOSCHE Industries has announced the arrival of their new MagicGrip advanced wireless charging phone mounts.

The MagicGrip mounts, which debuted at the International CES, are now in stock and available for purchase at Scosche.com and at select retailers. The innovative design and advanced technology of the MagicGrip has already garnered three awards: the iPhone Life Best of CES 2019 Award, a 2019 SEMA Global Media Award and a 2020 TWICE Picks Award.

Click here to visit the MagicGrip product page.

When a Qi-enabled phone is placed against the charging head, MagicGrip senses the Qi coil and automatically closes its motorized arms to securely grip and wirelessly charge the phone. This Auto-Grip technology ensures the best positioning for optimum charging.

Qi-certified by the Wireless Power Consortium, the MagicGrip wirelessly charges at up to 10W and is Fast Charge compatible with Apple, Samsung, and Google Qi-enabled phones. MagicGrip comes with an 18W USB-C PD car adapter and charging cable. For home or office use, we recommend using our ReVolt QC charger with Qualcomm 3.0 Quick Charge, for your fastest charging experience.

Designed with a thermal management channel between the charging head and your phone allows heat to escape for cooler, safer, more efficient charging. An ambient light sensing LED light ring indicates charging and the head rotates 360˚, so your phone is viewable in landscape, portrait, or any angle in between.

MagicGrip is currently available in a choice of three base options:

The MagicGrip Window/Dash mount (pictured above) has a StickGrip suction-cup base that allows you to mount it on any flat surface at home, in the office, or in-vehicle.

The MagicGrip Dash mount uses automotive grade adhesive to provide a strong hold to a dash, table, desk, counter, or other flat surface.

The FreeFlow Vent mount with its articulating swing-arm lets you move your phone away from your vehicle’s vent. The vent mount is available at Apple.com.

MagicGrip mounts, priced at $69.95 each, are available now at Scosche.com and at select retailers.

Scosche will be releasing three additional base mount options for the MagicGrip soon: the Window/Dash Double-Pivot, the Window/Dash telescoping Extendo, and the Swing-Arm Dash.

Our goal is to highlight the incredible skill that exists among today’s builders who have mastered working with a uniquely American platform – The Jeep Wrangler,” said Tony May, Executive Producer, American SuperJeep Challenge. “We could not be happier with the competitors for our first series, and while all of the participants deserve recognition for their many contributions to the off-road community, GRDLOC’s marriage of form, function and creativity ultimately earned Nic Ashby and Rockstar Performance Garage the top spot.”

SCOSCHE Industries Introduces 6 Models of MagicMount Fresche 2-in-1 Phone Mount / Air Freshener

LAS VEGAS, NV (01.07.2020) – SCOSCHE has introduced Fresche, a new line of mounts designed for drivers who like a safe, uncluttered and fresh-smelling vehicle.

Most states now have hands-free driving laws, so a stable and reliable phone mount is a necessity. Many drivers also enjoy having a clean fresh-smelling vehicle. We found an elegant solution to fulfill both of those needs. Fresche is a range of vent mounts, with a selection of different mounting heads, including: magnetic, universal mount, and fast wireless charging. Fresche mounts not only securely hold your phone, but also hold an air freshener cartridge that uses the airflow from your vehicle’s vent to release fragrance throughout your vehicle.

The MagicMount Fresche utilizes Scosche’s patent pending FreeFlow vent mount design that has an open circular design and an articulated swing-arm. This arm lets you move your phone away from the vent in any direction, while the base remains securely anchored there. The FreeFlow design proved to be the perfect vehicle for housing an air freshener cartridge and harnessing the airflow to disperse the scent.

Fresche mounts incorporate all of the features of Scosche’s multi-award-winning, tried and trusted MagicMount line. All Fresche mount models use the same replaceable air freshener cartridges that are available in a variety of scents, including “New Car Scent.”

The Fresche range of mounts also features non-magnetic, universal mounts (shown above).

“We know that many Scosche customers are true car enthusiasts who like
to drive a clean fresh vehicle, so we’re forming a Fresche refill subscription service. Members of this Fresche Club will be confident that “smelling good” is a constant attribute of their vehicles.”

MagicMount Fresche vent mounts will be available March, 2020, starting at an MSRP of $19.99. Qi Wireless Charging Fresche mounts will be available June, 2020 starting at an MSRP of $54.95.
