    I'm sick of my iPhone 6S plus sliding off my lap... and it doesn't really fit in the square cup holder in the console next to me if I've got my coffee cup in it....

    The Cd slot ones block the Entune screen...so I'd rather not use that one... nor anything that uses sticky tape.

    Pics are awesome too thanks in advance

    I have a cord coming out of the center console that I plug it into and then slide it into the boot next to the e-brake. Stays there well enough.

    He said no sticky tape. Not sure why, VHB is easily removed even long after.

    Maybe he should look at the iOttie brand, they seem to be well regarded.

    I have the Scosche Magic Mount attached just to the left of the emergency flasher. Fantastic little mount.

    Right now I'm experimenting with a Frankensteinian mash-up of the Scosche Magic Mount with the Nillikin vent-clip magnetic Qi wireless charger. Disassembling the two I was able to attach the Nilliken to the Scosche and use the latter's magnets to supplement the Nillikin. I have a random charging patch on my iphone7 under a thin Elago case.

    So far it's mostly working, but a little finicky on placement. I'd like to get a bit more "stickiness" and may supplement the magnets. Still, it's really cool to just place the phone on the magnet mount and it starts charging.

    (note: built in USB doesn't seem to supply enough juice, had to add a cig lighter 1A charger to even make the wireless charger work, but the 2A side is better of course)

    An unusually high amount of pinstriping.
    I ended up installing a RAM mount. Makes it much easier to use some of the off road navigation apps that I have. Of course after I installed this, I saw a setup that allows you to show your phone screen on the radio.

    Nope. I was trying to find it the other day and wasn't able to. I remember you had to buy a kit and plug it into the back of the head unit, but that's about all I remember. Buy the way, welcome to TW. :cheers:
