Looking for an iphone holder

I liked the idea of the Speckdock, but I am not paying 180 dollars for an iphone cradle. Maybe 50. I don't need it to really charge. Just a place to store it besides the ashtray or next to the ebrake.

A simple pocket that slid up under the trim next to the right leg would work if I could find something like that. I don't want some thing that hangs it off the vent or windshield.

This is the best one I've found. Pretty ingenious invention. I even take it with me when I travel on business with rentals.

Just install it in the DVD slot, turn the knob and the fins lock it in place. You can also turn it horizontally. I love it.

I want something more out of the way. I don't need to see the screen. Just a place to put it that is out of the way aside from in my ashtray.

Try this iOttie from amazon. Can't beat it at $17

http://www.amazon.com/iOttie-HLCRIO1...eywords=iottie

I place it on the left side of my flat surface of the nag screen. Blocks a bit of the screen, but I don't really look at it anyway. I use my iphone for all my navigation and music (streamed via bluetooth)

I'll post pics when I get the chance.

I want something more out of the way and clean. Just a simply pocket. Where I can easily get to it.

Panavise custom thin metal mount and proclip to hold phone. They have adjustable for use with case or without. By far the best. Only issue is occasional passenger knee can bump it. I will try and attach photos.

I wonder if I can just do a DIY spec dock in the ash tray. I refuse to pay 184 dollars for something that costs about 30 bucks.

With an on-board monitor I don't think you need a phone holder unless you have a car without one.

Bav Auto started selling one of these recently. Haven't seen one in person, but placement is perfect for e9x cars...

I use the slyde magnetic mount from Infiniapps and love it. You put it in the DVD/CD slot, turn a screw for it to secure itself within. Place a metal plate on your phone or case and then the magnet on the head of the mount holds the phone in place. easily removed or whatever. Not too in the way I think. http://www.infiniappstands.com/pages/slyde-cd-mount
