Default Where do you put your phones?

ANyone else not sure where to put their phone when they get into their car? My last car had a nice sized cubby in the console that I could put it. Now the small one in the front is to small, putting it in the arm rest is awkward if I want to start another podcast episode, and putting it in the cup holders is also awkward, more so if its charging. I thought of a cell holder that would slip into the CD slot as I don't use CD's but everyone I saw seemed like the Volume knob would be in the way.

How do you guys do it? Maybe if I had a smaller phone, but I'm using a Pixel XL.

I put mine in the arm rest. Phone calls the car picks up and I don't text and drive. I have an I-Phone and have a message that goes back if a get a text while driving.

I use one of these. I have an iPhone 8 with wireless charging so I don't want to to use the plate/magnet setup. On the AC vent keeps it cool. Easy in and out.

I like the look of that holder. Do you have any pictures of it mounted?

IMO Pro Clip makes one of the best mounts. Super easy to clip onto your dash, causes no damage, pops on/off with ease, positions phones nicely and is clean looking. Just add the round magnetic style mount to it like you'll see here in my pics. I put a few photos into a gallery showing it from various views holding my Galaxy Note 8.

As I've stated in other posts regarding magnetic phone holders, if you have a phone that utilizes Qi wireless charging, the attachment of a metal or magnetic disc to the back of the phone can interfere with charging.

The solution I use is a wallet style case. Not only is it useful and protects well but the door slides open moving the round metal disc used out of the way when it charges.
