My old one has broken but it was one that stuck to the windscreen which I never liked so I need a new one. My wife has a great one that goes into the cd slot but that's not an option, I've bought a sticky pad but that's not very good and I can't seem to find a good one to go into the air vent.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks

Brodit are worth a look, they do a variety of mounts for most cars and most handsets. I have one that clips over the air vent and adjusts to any angle. I've had them in every car for years and haven't broken one yet.

Try a Kenu phone holder. They clip onto the air vent and clamp to the width of your phone. Best I’ve had. I got mine from Argos however don’t believe they sell them anymore.

I've got a Nite-Ize Steelie which is a combinaiton of a steel ball stuck to the car and a little magnet on the back of the phone. Works a treat, looks very subtle.

Personally I use the RAM Mount range. It is modular and you can go with suction or adhesive bases (if you were for example filming on board on a track day the suction mounts are a no-no, so adhesive, bolt on or clamp {to roll cages} are all options for that), an armature in one of a range of sizes and a variety of device mounts. I have actually just had to order a new phone holder part as my new phone can't use the old one (I had the iPhone 5/5s/SE specific one and have ordered the X-Grip holder as that works with a variety of sizes including my new phone).

Not the cheapest, but quality stuff.

Thanks all, I've gone for an eBay special magnetic ball one to test it out.

I recently picked up one of the Belkin cup holder ones from Halfrauds

Mega - transfers easily between cars, adjustable for different sized holders etc.

I think pocket is the best place for a phone whilst one is driving ....!

Can’t help thinking that this location o( or anything similar where a phone is used ) is just asking for the eye to be taken off the road and contribute to a possible ‘event’ where one should really have eyes on the road in from .....

All these touchy controls on screens that the latest cars have just don’t seem right to me ....demand too much attention from the driver ......who should be doing just that ....’driving’.......

Mind you .....I find sat nav virtually useless in a car anyway , as I usually know where I am going , and how to get there as I plan it before hand .....

Can’t really get too lost where I live though!

I'm looking at this as an option, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261417465626 sitting on top Of The steering column, obscures the rev counter slightly but you have your nav in good view off the phone. Waiting for mine to arrive, will need to cut it down to fit.
