    Smart phone dock recommendations?

    Looking for one and wondering what ones you guys are using. It'd be great if you had a pic of it installed, too!

    I ordered a cheap one from eBay to try out, but I'm still open to trying something else (hence why I bought cheap).

    I think I'm going to end up mounting near the bottom-centre of the windshield. I'd rather do it on the dash, but the cold weather here will weaken the suction drastically on plastic. I figure the windshield will hold it much better. I also need to hook up an aux cord, so it's nice to keep my phone near the stereo.

    I have an iPod in the glovebox and don't use the CD player at all, so I bought:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JP0RTB4?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailp age_o00_s00

    I've tried a lot of mounts(most fall off; glue fails from sticker or suction cup fails) and this beats them all. Mounts in the cd slot. Never moves, phone holder never gets loose. With where our cd player is in the Mirage, it puts the phone pretty much right where a navigation screen would be anyway. I have the phone charge cord routed from the car lighter plug-in under the side of the radio surround and coming back out the right side with just enough slack to plug my phone in. Only dangles a little if phone isn't plugged in.

    If your Mirage has the media system in it already, they make a matching one that clips onto the air vent.

    That's cool. I never would have thought of using the CD player as a mount. That's definitely peaked my interest. The sturdiness sounds awesome.

    I don't have the media system, but am hoping to upgrade to an aftermarket deck with bluetooth someday. Which is fine, because I'm not a fan of deck-mounted ones. My whole reasoning of buying a dock now is because there's no place to lay my phone to access it easily when I want to change a song/press next. I lay it in the rear cupholder now, which requires me to reach behind my seat basically, haha.

    It's quite a bit more expensive in Canada, though

    if the suction doesnt work due to cold weather you may instead put in on top of the dashboard, the upper part where the aircon is located at the middle thats also a good spot!

    I use this one, https://www.thansen.dk/bil/autoudsty.../pn-491081716/

    Primary for my phone when I use it as gps.
    Normally it's just in my pocket and then I use the bluetooth connection..

    You can buy theme cheap online, just try a search like "gps windshield mount" ..
