But cocpit in C-HR isn't flat near ventil so you must rotate 90deg & block some fresh air or buy dock with longer leg & enyoj vertical position of your phone.

Every holder I tried, which sticks to panel, didn't last an hour trip :) I had a few suction mounted on windshield - these were solid, but too large and clunky. My C-HR is already at the dealer's, so I'll update when I try this cup-holder-holder(?) :D
How well does the Belkin holder fit your car? thanks

As it was mentioned before, you have to put some effort as cup holders aren't round in C-HR. After some work it held perfect, BUT...

...the first one broke as I must have used too much force tightening it. Belkin replaced it promptly (took ~3 days with delivery). The replacement also snapped a few days ago :/ This time it just shattered inside and all three holding parts came out while driving and no force used. Wonder if Belkin would refund it...

You think something like this might work better?

It's magnetic, so I wouldn't even consider it, because you have two options: glue a magnetic sticker to the back of your phone or put a phone in a case which holds a magnetic sticker.

Anyway, the mechanics are probably the same. I think the materials matter. Belkin is all plastic (although it didn't feel cheap). Maybe that's why it didn't last long.
