I need replacement magnetic mounts for my outdoor cameras (not the IQ ones)... I have searched extensively online but there are none available. The Nest Google Support forums here say to contact support and they can send one out- I did that but support said they would not help. They said they only send them to people under warranty, but I pointed out this isn't possible since all of that model are over 1yr old at this point...... help!!! I need a replacement magnet mount thing, even if I have to pay for it! My dog chewed it up 😞

I have same they really want to force us to buy a whole new camera just to get the magnet?

It really is mind boggling that they cannot provide a spare part to purchase...

It's sneaky is what it is. They want us to toss the camera and buy a whole new one for almost $300 because they outsmarted us. Google does it again.

Hey there! Did you ever get any help? I just spent an hour on support for them to tell me that even though I've got $1000 worth of Nest products they won't send me a silly part that makes the camera useable. Really hoping there is a solution for us somewhere because this is absurd! 

There has been no response...  I replied and asked for update, but nothing.

I really wish I had not purchased so many google products, cameras, doorbell, wi-fi mesh, thermostat...  in the future, as I need to replace, I will seek other brands.
