    I don't understand, why car designers are not designing a spot for our phones?

    maybe with more phones going to wireless charging, including the newly announced IPhones, more manufacturers will start including a wireless charging mat somewhere in the car.

    A while ago, I had made my own wireless charger, for my ex Note 3. I will do the same thing, when I get my Note 8. I will also give it a try, to wireless mirroring with my Kenwood. That would be awesome, if it would work. Wireless charging, wireless screen mirroring, Android Auto to start with Pandora, by touching only one icon

    Yes I donít mind using that on my dash! Itís probably the cleanest look I could come up with!
    Looks really good. I want to do something similar. How did you make the metal bracket ?

    Kuda will have their phone mount for the 2017 cx-5 very soon. It's not listed on their site yet but was told it'll be soon once the first batch arrives from Germany. Not the greatest picture but that's what was provided to me.

    I like how it mounts on the dash but it seems too far from the driver.

    It should be far. You shouldn't be touching it.

    Yeesh that Kuda one is bulky. Ruins the "flow" of the dash IMHO.

    ProClip has also come out with their solution:



    Apparently clips or hangs from the gap right in front of the screen. Don't really like this one either.

    You are right. I guess the CD mount is the best option for me. Hehe!

    Yea it does seem a bit far but seems okay. I pre ordered it so will see how it'll work out. I saw the pro clip one too but I didn't like it being in front of the screen :/

    The Pro Clip when installed, from the driver's angle (based on my installation), kinda blocks only 1/2" portion in the rightmost portion of the screen.

    And the ProClip model appears to only be for models with the CD player, so no use to those of us in the US.

    "NOTICE: Visually inspect your dash for a match to our photos. 2017 models offered two dash styles. This ProClip only fits the models shown in our photos. Only for models with a CD player."
