    I went with the A-pillar RAM mount. I wanted my phone as close to driving line of sight as possible.

    Not mine, but this. Using the RAM-HOL-PD3U, not the X.

    This video is helpful for understanding how it functions:

    I use RAM X-grip with @Lostsheep mounts for both my phone and my I-pad and couldn’t be happier.

    Just found the arms a bit flimsy if one is not careful around them. Which I was not. Can't bend the purpose-built stuff they sell.
    Thought I'd offer an opinion. Cue joke about opinions being like assholes...

    I need to get something for the phone mount in the taco. Used magnetic on my old phone attached to vent. Worked great until you had full a/c or heat on. Then the phone would start acting coo-coo...


    In the CRV my iphone wedges perfectly between the climate knob and the bottom of stereo. No holder needed :)

    Not enough to have a build thread.
    Thank you all for your replies. I'm not gonna quote because that would be obnoxious. I don't believe the tech deck is an option for me because #firstgenprobs. I'll do some window shopping and get back to ya. Leaning toward the mob as the ram mount mounted to the a pillar is kinda pricey. If I remember right it's over $60. Or maybe more.
