Many of the mounts in the above thread are no longer available. Also, I'd prefer not to have any of these:
The link I gave goes to my report on the iOttie One-Touch XL, which is both still available and avoids all the items you'd prefer not to have.
In fact, my LEAF still looks like the picture I posted, with the iOttie sitting to the left of the steering wheel, with the phone mounted just near the steering wheel. The difference is I've since replaced the mount with a One-Touch 2 (since the LG G4 was larger than the LG G2 I previously had).
I've had reasonable success with the sticky suction cup style of mount. They are not permanent and they've never damaged the dash in the 4 cars we have them in. I have had them fall off the dash in extreme heat or cold a few times; usually they will just go right back on. My oldest iOttie stopped being sticky enough after 3 years and 2 cars and I considered a loss. My newest iOttie came with a extra replacement sticky pad so I suspect I'm not the only one who had this problem.
