    How do you guys mount cell phone?

    Trying to decide on best way to mount my cellphone in my new soul so I can use the navigation feature on it.

    I have a droid X2 with an otterbox case on it so I have to get one of those universal holders because of case.

    But I don't like the windshield suction cup as they seem to pop off after a while. maybe vent clip

    Thinking of some kind of velcro attachment do it myself type thing but not sure if I want to put adhesive on dash.

    What works for you guys?

    KIA makes a 'Universal Electronics Holder' that works quite well. Only drawback is it takes up one of your cup holders.

    Here is one I ran across:

    [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Macally-Adjustable-Portable-Devices-Vehicle/dp/B002JTWRN8/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=IPRP21OFMYCKN&colid= 8TVA5CPDB984]Amazon.com: Macally mCup Adjustable Cup Holder for All Portable Devices in Vehicle (Black): Electronics[/ame]

    I use the R-A-M mount for my cell phone, hand-held radio and radio control head. Got to drill some holes, but they have lots of different bases, arms and mounts for various devices.

    I just wish they had forward cup-holders like the PT Cruiser. If you have the center storage / armrest thing the one cup-holder is pretty worthless.

    Can't recommend these mounts enough.. Love the fit and finish of them

    kudausa - KUDA car custom color leather mounts for mobile electronics

    They have a soul specific mount then many different adapters to support different devices.

    So, $160 bones for a mount and an iPhone base?

    Thats if you want it connected (power and audio and such.

    Get the soul specific mount for $50 then the universal and your done. Dont need any connections myself really because of the BT. Even the map directions on the ip4 will stream over and no wires.

    cup holder ones are a no go as its to much trouble to look at the phone down in a cup holder when using it as a gps.

    THinking of just modding one so that will attach in the middle storage tray, one above the radio.

    Just put some sort of socket in the storage tray that you can open the door and pop the mount into -- piece of cake.

    Gonna do something like that, ordered a universal that has vent and window mount so ill figure a way to modify one of those to attach to something.

    I was just trying to see if anyone else came up with something different to mount one.

    As cheap as the vents are in new cars, I wouldn't even think about using one of those mounts in the vent. There are some companies that sell a flexible arm that bolts under the seat and comes up next to the console. That and a universal phone holder would be pretty slick. Here is one:
