How does a magnetic phone mount work?
The technology of the magnetic phone mount is simple. Let us look at the lamination structure of the hard disk, it consists of an insulating layer, metal sheet layer, and external cover.
The principle of recording information on the hard disk is that when it passed over the head there are two magnetic fields, one is a permanent magnet, and the other is a magnetic field made by electric current.
The principle of a phone mount with a fixed magnetic plate is the same as hard disks. The fixed magnetic plate is fixed in the car by adhesive tape or other means, and then put the magnetic bracket of the phone is in the car. The metal plate inside the phone is used to generate a magnetic field, and then it interacts with the magnetic plate in the car, and then it will automatically pick up the phone to stay on.

I would say NO if it is done correctly. If it is not done correctly, then YES.
If the CD player has no moving parts (the CD tray does not move), then it will not face any mechanical damage. It will still face electrical damage.
If the CD player has moving parts (the CD tray moves), then YES it may be damaged. This risk is very minimal as the CD tray only moves a small bit.
How do CD slot mounts work?
CD slot phone mounts work by using a clamp, or a pair of clips that grab onto the edges of your CD slot. This leaves enough space for the mount to slide in, but once it's in there is zero play.
The easiest way to envision this is by imagining a standard hot/cold water faucet. The nut that the plumber uses to tighten down the pipe is a perfect example of this kind of mount. In fact, most of the mounts that are made for phones use this same exact principle.
What are the main advantages of using a CD slot phone mount?
Well, the first advantage is that you don't have to stick anything on your windshield. As most of us know, this can be a major pain to deal with. In some states, it's illegal to have anything but a GPS on your windshield, and in other states, there are simply too many restrictions to even bother to use one.
The second big advantage is that a CD slot phone mount allows you to get a clear view of your GPS from any angle. On a windshield mount, you only have one angle. In order to get a better look, you need to pull over and reorient the GPS. This is a huge pain, and it means that you are wasting time on your road trip.
The third advantage of using a CD slot phone mount is that it is a lot safer. Instead of trying to maneuver your phone while you're driving, you can simply pick up the phone and place it on the mount. It's a lot less distracting and a lot safer in general.
