Does anyone have a recommendation for a car mount?

What type of mount do you prefer? Air vent, cd slot or window/dash mount?
I have a dash mount, but it came from my old car and I cannot get it to stick to my new car. I got some 3M adhesive strips, but they just won't hold it. So, I'm looking for other possibilities. I don't like the window mounts, I feel like the obstruct too much view. So, I guess I am open to either the air vent or cd slot.
I don't need to mount it all the time. I have Bluetooth connectivity in this car (2013 Accord), so for listening to music and talking on the phone, I can just leave it on the tray. But, when I need it for navigation, I would like to be able to put it into a mount.
I have an air vent mount by New Trent Arcadia. Magnate on dash steel plate in cover back.
Love it, and I've used the cup holder mounts and clamp mounts before, this one's awesome. Available on Amazon.

Cover with steel plate
Those mounts like @Efin posted above work good. I had one for my Z3 but after switching to a bigger and heavier case, it would sag the vents a bit so I switched to one of these: Amazon.com Koomus Aero Air Vent Universal Smartphone Car Mount Holder for iPhone 6 6 5 5S 5C Samsung Galaxy S5 S4 S3 Note 4 3 - Retail Packaging - Black Cell Phones Accessories
The ball mount on the back keeps it nice, tight and secure.
If you have a CD slot, you can go with something like this one here: Amazon.com Koomus Magnetos Universal CD Slot Magnetic Cradle-less Smartphone Car Mount Holder for iPhone 6 6 5 5S 5C 4 4S iPod touch Samsung Galaxy S5 S4 S3 Note 2 Note 3 Google Droid HTC GPS with Quick-snap technology Cell Phones Accessories
A friend of mine has one of these mounts (Car Phone Holder Cell Phone Holder Car Phone Mounts - ProClip USA and it is great. Doesn't rattle or pick up many vibrations from the road from what I seen whenever I'm in the car. I'm definitely going to get one once they make a custom holder for my next device (Xperia z4v). They're a bit pricey, but the quality is top notch.
And I have one of these in my truck, like it as well.

Thanks for all the advice. I looked at ProClip ones and they have a specific mount for my car and for the Nexus 6, but it is a bit expensive (about $65).
Wondering about the other mounts -- would they really hold a phone as large and heavy as the Nexus 6?
Like Wicked said, with the magnate it depends upon the case, my S5 is rock solid. Now if off roading, I'd not guarantee it obviously, the second mount I noted is good for off road use an is why I use it in the truck.
I've used several over the years and like minimal size for the holder. There definitely are bulky holders that will even hold a tablet.
