What does everyone recommend as a good phone holder?

Thu Jan 21, 2021 2:44 pm

I'm thinking the best place would be to install something in one of the AC vents, but I'd rather not block that unless I have to.

I have a 2020 Leaf Plus SV.

To be honest, I just use the nav screen -- tilt it out as far as it will go and then I lay my phone on top, using the nav bezel as a "ledge". At first I worried that falling would be a problem but it turns out to be stable enough, and presents a decent viewing angle. Depends on the size and thickness of phone, and case I suppose. I go for smaller phones; currently using iPhone8 with the thin leather case.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Unfortunately, the 2019 and newer Plus models have a fixed screen (not sure about 40 kWh models). I attached a charging cradle with screws to the plastic trim piece near the A/C vent to the left of the steering wheel knowing I could replace that trim piece if I ever need to remove the cradle. Nissan offers an accessory wireless charging cradle that mounts in the little storage space below the power button for 2018 and 2019. I suspect they also offer it for 2020, but the power wiring to install it requires removal and reinstallation of most of the trim panels on the passenger side of the dash so I chose not to purchase it.

CupPhone by Weathertech. Easy in and out. Take it to any car. Close to the USB ports for charging. Works for me.

I know I'm a week late to the party... On the off chance you haven't decided yet, or someone else is reading this, I can't say enough good things about iOttie Easy One Touch 5. My wife and I both have one and no complaints. Sticks to the glass well, can be adjusted to fit just the way you want, and holds the phone securely.

There is also a version with wireless charging built in if that's your thing.
