Looking for a good cell phone mount. I have an iPhone 8 at the moment, not really looking to mount something big. I checked out pro clips. Anyone else want to share other options they've installed or use?
Check the thread I started a couple weeks back. There was a couple good options. I plan on a mount install at the front of the cup holder as seen in that thread. I have high mounts now and was going that route but when someone pointed out why with CarPlay i started th think the same-with CarPlay I won’t use it.
What you could do is simply run your 3 meter cable out of your console compartment toward the front, tuck it under the leather and bring it out just above the small compartment under the screen. Its invisible, free and works great when you use car play. At least thats what i do.
I really wanted a clean, "cordless" look for a vent-mounted magnetic wireless "fast" (10W) charger. A separately purchased thin diameter USB power cable was routed through the steering wheel gap to a cavity underneath the Sensus system (accessible by just moving the floor carpet), which has a car charger tapped into the right front fusebox via a tap-a-fuse. The USB cable was held in place using "heavy-duty" double-sided black tape attached only to plastic surfaces, not the leather nor wood out of fear the double-sided tape would be very difficult to remove or cause damage in the future.
I gave up on Android Auto (too small and horrible controls on Sensus IMO) but use the phone instead until Volvo retrofits Sensus with Android or, if they don't, I replace Sensus with a ROIK navigation box.
