This one works pretty well for me.

I wanted a phone dock basically for google maps. As PJPLONDON suggested earlier on page 5, I use one of these and I am totally satisfied because: a) it is very steady, b) I wanted no glue (it has a 3M tape but I don't use it because it sits nicely without it!), c) I am not a fan of magnetic holders that require extra cases for phone and d) other plastic holders that I've used on several cars over the years just fall off eventually. I think it is perfect for map viewing (only restriction the landscape mode) because the place it fits (just above the steering wheel) is very convenient. I don't know if it is practical for other use (music and stuff) but for what I wanted it is perfect

It is not available anymore in Amazon. I found a similar in ebay. Should I go for it or is it a cheap imitation?

I think you should go for it. It's not something you should put money on. I got it from amazon but it came from china too... check



It seems to be identical. If you do the trick with 3 euros you will be two times satisfied :P...And from my experience I think you will. If it’s not the same, the concept is exactly the same. From where it fits it won’t go anywhere. I don't know if it will last forever but I know I won't regret the (little) money I gave. So it' s a rather safe choice. Only concern to see if your phone meets the requirements (size or weight).

I just purchased a similar one and it seems fine. The only disadvantage is that the steering wheel hides a small part of the bottom of the phone screen. But it does the work fine! Thanks!

Been on my dash for six months now without a problem or any damage. Best £10 I've spent!
Did it hurt the leather? Any visible damage or mark?

You could fix the steering wheel position slightly down if that’s not a problem for you
