Default Smart phone holder ideas

Has any one seen or made a decent looking smart phone holder? Here is a pic from the Porsche museum of a mobile phone adaptor.

I think this is a case for Nate or Hans or maybe Jerry Feather.

I have one in my 87. I like it since it can be removed easily when at car shows etc. Sorry I could not find any pics of it installed. You buy the mount then a specific cradle for your device.

I like the Ram Mount...

Can use different sized phones so don't have to replace it when I upgrade my phone.

Following. Windshield cups aren't legal in California and vent clips bend the vent and the clips.

I think the side mount in the photo would be an acceptable solution as long as it is easily removable.

I just never installed the center vent piece and just close the center vent flap in my 81 to hold my phone in place. As an added benefit, it keeps it from overheating too.

So is not having a front license plate.

I got busted for that in high school at the end of the month after 2 years of no issues, and they tell me quotas don't exist...

I have been using this for several years and have one in all my cars:

Amazon Amazon

The only problem is that to make sure you place it in the correct position since the suction cup will be extremely difficult to release once set. It has never ever fallen off the windshield, unlike my Garmin GPS which falls off every day.

I have a cig plug unit with a gooseneck and rotating clamping attachment. Works real well.

They can be mounted to the windshield in the lower left corner on the drivers side.
