Phone Holders
#1
This has probably been covered before but as a newbie thought i'd post a thread about which phone holders you all use? Pics Welcome.

I found this one by Belkin in Maplins, expensive @£30 but perfect for my van (cheaper versions are available on fleabay)

What you got in yours?

I use the pocket in the passenger footwell where the USB cable plugs in. With the touchscreen and CarPlay there is no need for a phone holder.

Would be good for me too, but my android phone doesn't support the mirrorlink app at the moment.  Sad

Thanks IanK, yes it's easy to pull out and refit, mine is actually broken too, being the hamfisted sod that i am i managed to overtighten it and bust something inside so the twist out fins don't work on mine, but it's a great fit in the can holder so doesn't make any difference. :-)

Here's a link to the Belkin product, think i bought mine from Maplins.

I've got it in the bottom right corner of the windscreen and have it rotated so the phone clamps are top and bottom so the phone is landscape.  It's absolutely perfect for the sat nav app here, as you can glance at it without looking away from the road.  I've got it so the spring-loaded side is at the top, fixed one at the bottom, resting on the dashboard so it's nice and steady.  It holds the phone well without damage, and sticks well to the screen.

I also have a hard-wired Micro USB charger that dangles out of the A pillar just next to it - the phone's socket points to the right when it's a landscape for sat nav.  The charger goes right around the windscreen, totally invisible, and goes to a piggy back fuseholder in the back of the glovebox.

Sounds like a neat and tidy set up, holder is quite funky too, but i have raging OCD about stuff stuck to the windscreen, it's a huge no no for me..........I know...I'm a bit weird!! :-) :-)

You could stick a plastic disc on your dash and they stick the holder on to that instead of the windschermen. Sold where they sell satnav.

Thanks berreke, I'm more than happy with my Belkin Cup Holder Mount (see original post) It's neat and tidy and have a charging cable plugged in via the usb port in the passenger footwell. Works for me :-)

PS Have just added pic to OP with phone and charging cable in situ.

I use one of these, purchased on ebay, it pushes vertically into the power socket beside the gear lever, there is hand clearance to change gear with phone in landscape mode. it powers the phone and provides further USB sockets for other devices. Its not the most robust construction I've ever seen but it works fine and its quite cheap (approx £7).

Route the power from the cig lighter, into the dashboard, out at the back of the radio/display screen, dip into glove box on driver side then back out for short route to the phone. 
Stand on the small drivers window, so able to open car door with out ripping phone out or stand off the glass and still able to open the normal window.
