    I specifically didn't want it in the cupholder. That's where my cups go.

    ProClip and Arkon. The RAM holder is better than Arkon and also mounts to the ProClip. I just haven’t switched yet.

    I don't like any of these places because it puts strain on the cable/connection, and the phone can come out on corners/bumps. Because of this, and the lack of places to put a suction cup where it's out of the way, I made my own place to mount it out of plexi glass and sign holders:

    Attached it to the tunnel cover, ran the cable under the tunnel. I made it "pretty" since passengers will likely not want to have my phone mount all up in their space. I do most of my driving alone, so it won't bother me most of the time.

    That's pretty slick man. Good work.

    Over time, the adhesive on these failed. I cut up the double backed tape from a GoPro mount and replaced the tape. That has held tight.

    I live 2 miles down a rutted dirt road and have had no issues of the phone coming off the magnetic mount.

    Thanks, like others, I have tried the vent mount, then the scosh mount near the airbag light and realized, "WTF am I doing? I have no need for my phone to be mounted where I can see it." I have been placing it in the cup holder. Tried the passenger seat which ends in epic failure after a fun corner. Stuck it in glove box and center arm rest cubby and get inside and realize I left my goddam phone in my car again...for the 4th time today!!! I think your spot will be much better and easier to remember to grab.

    I was thinking about drilling a small hole in the center console and a small hole with rubber grommet to the Sync area and have the cable come out there for my iPhone. But, still need a place for the phone, as it will slosh around. Maybe a magnet mount there. Hate there’s no phone spot. Lol.
