I used an iOttie vent mount from my previous car.
A phone car mount and holder is a device that positions a cell phone in a settled area. These mounts are introduced in areas where one should have his or her without hands to accomplish something else. Aside from an auto, mounts and holders can be appended to a bicycle or a bike. The following are a portion of the fundamental reasons why individuals ought to consider getting a magnetic phone holder car mount and holder in their vehicle.
Now that I finally have my car, I've had some time to experiment with a mount setup that I think I'm finally happy with!
Generally speaking, I prefer magnetic mounts to other styles (e.g. suction or clasp). To that end, this is what I'm doing in my Clarity.
I've placed a magnetic mount on the left-hand side of the 'bridge' and I simply place my phone on that when I enter the car. I'm using a Vava Magnetic Phone Mount for this purpose. The mount includes a thin metal disc that I've attached to the inside of my phone case.
Phone mounted on magnetic mount by Numbernine posted Aug 8, 2018 at 8:06 PM
When my phone isn't there, you can see that the USB cable is clipped to the side! I'm using a magnetic cable clip to hold the cable there. Note that the magnets that came with the particular cable clips I bought aren't great, so I've added an additional tiny rare earth magnet to 'boost' the holding power. As for the USB cable, it's three feet long and I needed to hide the excess, so I coiled it up and used some Sugru to attach it to the underside of the gear selector - it's maybe not perfect, but I can't see it from where I'm sitting. Out of sight, out of mind.
Magnetic mount without phone present by Numbernine posted Aug 8, 2018 at 8:06 PM
Does the suction cup actually stick well to the dash?
I tried a couple, and it would not stick securely to the fake wood dash trim piece.
I have my phone holder with the suction cup on the fake wood on the dash between the a/c duct and the info screen and it works well. This is what I got: Magnetic car dash mount
I bought the exact same mount but I haven't installed it yet. How well does the adhesive stick to the fake wood trim on the console wing? That is where I want to put it too and my only concern is the texture on the "wood".
It seems to adhere perfectly well so far. The first 24 hours or so it seemed like it could fall off if I moved it hard enough, but after that the adhesive began to stick more tightly. Now I don't think it's going anywhere without significant force!
I purchased 2 stick on low profile magnets and stuck them below the floating console. This keeps my phone easy to use with Android auto and it takes no room. My only complaint is that I then to forget it when I get out of the car as it's not in sight (which is one of the things I like about it). I used both one for the driver side and the other for the passenger. I'ts nice to be able to grab it very easily and you can place it back without ever taking your eyes of the roads.
I love this idea that you had. Also, I had never even thought of the magnetic cable clips. Thank you for the pictures.
I too use magnetic mounts in both cars and at my home computer station. They are instant to use, stick well enough to turn the phone to landscape mode without it slipping, and are instant to remove.
I also use a magnetic USB cable on many devices around the house. Instant power to the phone, or if your an Android Auto person, instant connect to the car. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071CFJC3S/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Got a magic mount from Costco that suctions onto the dashboard trim. It’s been on since December and hasn’t come off yet.
I tried a bunch of lumber solutions. In the and, the air bubble packaging works best for me. Good price, too
Isn't that in the path of the Passenger Airbag?
I am going to try that air bubble packaging.
What I did to hold my phone was to ask for one of those dashboard sticky pads and put it beside the shifter on one of the wings that everyone complains about. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00V5099G...&colid=25O9SFHBUYFD&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it&th=1
I think you’re right (doh)! Let’s try that again.
There is one they sell at Costco which I bought, a bit bulky for my taste. I'll share a picture as soon as I have a chance.
