    What have you done to mount an iPhone / smartphone ? I would like to keep mine visible ( for checking at red lights ) and easy to press the home button for Siri.

    Bump. I'm looking at iPhone mounts as well. Mostly so I can keep Waze up. Anyone really like the solution they're using?

    My wife and I just picked this up for our car. It seems to work really well. We have the carbon fiber trim and the mount is stuck on the passenger side of the trim. The mount has a rock solid grip, it's very adjustable and it's easy to get the iPhone in and out of the mount. Also we have different size cases and this mount handles them with no problem.

    I'm waiting for ProClip to release a vehicle base for the Model S. Love their mounting solutions.

    No, but I'm thinking about it since they just released the Model S mounting solutions!

    I use exogear stuff. Only suction cup system that doesn't fall off every once in a while.

    I should add be careful on amazon for exogear stuff. I have received fakes that do not work.

    Reviving this thread.

    I just ordered this one from Amazon. I really like the minimalist design. Hope it works out and the disk on the iphone back doesn't prove to be a pain.

    My Steelie mount arrived. I debated where to mount it, considered just under the passenger vent but settled for above the mirror.

    I could potentially tap into 12v power behind the microphone grill (new builds don't have this) and wire in an 12v to USB adaptor and charger cable. Then I could fish the cable through.

    Slick! I have the pro-clip mount that goes on the bottom right of the LCD. I like it there -- That is a nice solution as well though. But....like you I use it for Waze and I don't know how useful it would be up that high.

    GasDoc--how did you wire up your Blackvue in your new(er) build S? Did you luck out and still have 12V behind the mic/grille?

    Lucky. The live 12v connector was still present in my current car.
