Frequently Asked Questions
No, Q-Plate on the back doesn’t prevent using a wireless charge pad. For wireless charging phones we recommend to place the Q-plate closer to the bottom of the smartphone (outside the induction field). In this case the plate will not interfere with the charging of the device, as well as it will reduce Qi module heating.Last updated:
Q-Plates are 0.5 mm thick so they can easily fit between a case and a phone. And there will be no issues holding the phone with cases up to 1.5mm thick. If your phone case is thicker than 1.5mm and you want to place a plate underneath it - feel free to stick two Q-plates for better magnetic grip (this way: https://static.tildacdn.com/tild3732-3135-4664-b764-623334386535/Untitled1.png)Last updated:
Q-plate comes off pretty easy and doesn’t leave anything ;)Last updated:
Yes, we use neodymium magnets that are very strong.
For smartphones with screens wider than 4.7 inches / heavier than 138 g (4.87 oz) - we recommend to stick two Q-plates for better magnetic grip (this way: https://static.tildacdn.com/tild3732-3135-4664-b764-623334386535/Untitled1.png)Last updated:
QLYX smart mount – is a holder with built-in BLE module that communicates with your phone and saves your precious time.
QLYX light – is the same stylish magnetic mount that can be used everywhere, but it doesn’t have ‘brain’ to interact with a smartphone.Last updated:
QLYX is safe for your phone and here is why:
One of the most frequent questions is whether a magnetic car mount would wipe a phone.
No, it will not for one simple reason. Internal components of a phone are made out of non-magnetic materials, therefore a magnet cannot disturb their work.
But what about the memory, you'd ask? Well, phones do not have HDDs (Hard disk drives) which use magnetic field to store information. On the contrary, phones hold storage chips, which are a type of flash memory, and which are not affected by magnets.
There are mentions on forums that iPods can be affected by a magnet. But that concerns only iPod Classic, which use Hard Disk Drives.Other mobile devices use flash memory and should not be worried about.
Remember those old big screens that would hum when working? They formed an image by deflecting a finely focus beam of electrons with magnetic fields. Thus, an external magnetic field interfered with the magnetic field, which was necessary to create an image. Today's phone screens use electricity to form and image and respond to interaction. Therefore a magnet does not pose any danger to smartphone's screen.
GPS and Compass
Another question that often rises concern in regard to magnetic car mounts is whether it upsets GPS work and location accuracy. GPS uses satellites to determine the coordinates, and knows the direction of movement by solving a simple math problem by comparing two sets of coordinates at different time. As A GPS module does not depend on magnetic fields, its works cannot be disturbed with an external magnetic force.
The story with a mobile compass is a little bit different. It uses sensors to determine magnetic field of earth, and proximity of another magnet nearby forces the sensors to react to it. The good news is, that hardly any application, and especially not navigation programs, need data from these sensors to work. So unless you drive with a compass on, you will not notice a thing.
Phones usually have Lithium-ion batteries. Charging and discharging is a result of a chemical reaction, while materials used for the body are non-magnetic. As a result a battery in a phone remains unaffected. Some users complain that a magnet is a car mount results the battery to discharge faster. The reason is hidden in the usage of the phone while on the mount as most users turn on navigation in car. GPS requires a lot of energy and thus quickly drains the battery.
Phone speakers use magnets to work, right? Well, according to tests, such small mount as in a car mount is just not strong enough to interfere with their work. So don't be afraid.
Cases with magnets
Finally it should be mentioned that some cases use magnets to turn on and off features on a phone, for example a screen on Samsung or iPad. The magnet in a car mount will not affect such functionality.Last updated:
Q-plates are ultra-thin electrical steel plates with high magnetic features. They are created to attach to back of phone/case with 3M tape.
The shape is not accidental. Our designers have been carefully choosing and experimenting with various forms to reach the ideal. We created a soft design for your comfort and aesthetic enjoyment.
We wanted to give you a chance to stick the Q-plate however you wanted. Phones are rectangular. Even if yours is not, the perfected shape of our Q-plate allows you to attach it to the phone any way you would like.
Want the tail to look up or down? Or maybe you would like it be placed diagonally. In any way, the Q-plate will fit your phone naturally.
But there is much more to the plates than its design. They are made from electrical steel which allowed us to make them so good.
Q-plates are the thinnest plates among magnetic phone holders, which means you can place it under any case.
Moreover, the material has superior magnetic characteristics thus even a case as thick as 1.5 millimeters will not distort your user experience.
And there is one more feature that not many will appreciate, but those who do, will be overly pleased. Only our Q-plates let you use NFC payments.Last updated:
Basically, QLYX APP is about 3 things:
1. It auto-launches desired application the moment you place your phone on the mount;
2. It collects your driving statistics;
3. It drops parking pin on the map.
How it works:
1. In the QLYX app you choose an app you would like to auto-launch from the list. Currently, it can be Waze, Spotify, Apple Maps, Google Maps, and Uber.
We are constantly working on increasing the number of applications to choose from.
In the settings, you can set auto-start time (2sec / 5sec / 10sec) or disable this function.
2. QLYX collects following driving statistics: average speed, distance covered and time spend for today, yesterday, last 7 days, last 30 days.
3. QLYX pins your car on the map, so you always know where you've left it.
QLYX app has a dashboard with widgets: traffic data, driving statistics and weather forecast. The number of widgets will also be increased in coming months.
Also, in some time we are planning to add useful push notifications for drivers.Last updated:
