    There should be a slot under the latch where the cable can come through.

    Made my own phone holder that sits between the seat and center console out of an empty Nature Valley Bar box. Functions as required and keeps the phone from rattling against the cup holders or sliding around it. Also room for a passenger's phone should they need one as well!

    Arkon seat mount. Their suction cup mounts are the best, have them for the AP and my V1. I used a couple of Garmin mounts w/ 3M double side tape and small zip ties to hold the stalk.

    The ball-mount here can be attached to a phone cradle...

While I appreciate the update and Apple CarPlay, it pisses me off that Nav is such an expensive option, yet we have no avenue to receive updated maps. Mine says map version is from 2014. Literally half of the area I love in now was built after 2014, which is frustrating.

    The Garmin I bought not only accepts voice commands but has regular map updates.
    I have it mounted in front of the shifter.

    Two minutes to put it on.
    That came with it's own quality black double-sided tape.
    There are other mounting options for that part, such as screws, but with a little rubbing alcohol (90%) to clean the surfaces, double-sided tape has held over the life of a few devices (about eight years) and really had to work to get the old mounting plate out of the old vehicle. This might hold up similarly but if not, will simply use the same tape I had before.

    Glad I didn't spend $800 on the nav option.

    Photos of the mount...

    You can still reach behind it and access the buttons for traction control, heated seats, accent lighting, etc. The GPS is on it's OEM cradle and can be snapped off as normal.

    The Garmin is also, surprisingly good at voice interpretation. It manages to pickup many street names that a phone won't because it has a very specific choice of names/vocabulary to interpret from. Apps on phones rely on the phone's built-in voice to text translation which by nature, has to be more generic. Therefore phones regularly mangle street names on voice to text translation.

    If you have Shaq-knuckles or a forward-grasp of the shift knob, you may have to adjust your grip to keep from accidently touching the display.>>

    Note that a phone will be constantly re-removed so double-sided tape alone is *NOT* an option here. The tape I used for the Garmin, (removed roughly weekly,) eventually did fail. The failed tape still on, applied just a tiny dab of cyanoacrylate glue on the console side, liberal amount on the mount side and reattached. Seems solid. The tape insures that it is at least, removable. Otherwise it would be permanent.

    This is obviously not for people that like to stare at screens. There may be readability issues with smaller phones as well. The (sadly discontinued) Nokia Windows 10 Mobile Phone itself, offers to read back text messages, as well as offer voice-to-text replies via Sync.

    I use popsockets and the car mount. I notched the USB in the center console, and ran it to the front pocket. I hate wires flopping around.

    Yeah lol. If you do the same, notch the USB in the back right not the front left. I had to shave a little off the actual console to run the wire.

    Also, here's my bass knob.
