Re: Any suggestions for phone dock?

Appreciate that this thread is a bit old and has probably been done to death......but....

First thing I have done is to install a magnetic phone dock / holder in the C-HR. I think the attached pictures should be pretty self-explanatory but I have used a magnetic holder and a metal plate in the back of my phone case and stuck / wedged it between the display screen and dials which I think makes it pretty secure, easily in reach and sight and is very discreet when not being used to hold the phone!

Best thing is my phone case matches the colour of the blue interior strip perfectly :D

Anyway, let me know what you think..... and I will post the link to where I bought it on-line if anyone wants one....only cost a few quid too ;)

(Apologies some of the photos are sideways :oops: )

Magnetic holders ok if you don't use wireless chargers as the metal plate blocks the signal.

Still waiting for my magnetic dock, i was aiming for this spot, but it looks like the steering wheel blocks the phone and i intended to use it as gps too. I was aiming for the right side near the door, just above the vent.

When the phone is horizontal you need to move your head a bit to see all of the screen ....but in the upright position it is fine (for me anyway).

I'm getting one of these. I think it should be perfect in the front most cup holder.
This is the one I like most. Is it stable? Any problems with it?
