Hi All,

Following on from my other thread and me using the 996 as my daily driver now.....where do you guys put your phone holder?

I have a cubby free in the centre but it is just empty but would be an idea place for the phone to be held in place.

Failing a solution to that do you just attach something to the windscreen?

IceBoy

PS. any photos would be helpful.

When I installed a holder for my iPod 5 years ago I just got a flat sheet of steel (robbed from the back of an old washing machine), cut out an L-shape then bent the bottom of the L at 90 degrees. Sprayed it black and stuck it with double-sided sticky tape to the top of the centre console, then svrewed a generic phone/iPod cradle to the front of it. Lasted until I updated my head unit and didn't need it.

There was a forum member who posted a picture of the phone on one of those magnetic mounts with a ball arm set in the cubby hole under the CD holders which worked really well.

I tried a magnetic holder and it was an excellent method of measuring cornering force - moderate corner, phone now diagonal, tight corner, phone horizontal, enthusiastic corner, phone in footwell.

I have a magnetic ball one too, positioned just inside the cubby so the phone is held flat covering the cubby, stops it moving around.
