    Am I the only one who uses the free phone holder? - perfect fit, in the right place.
    Charging is the only real issue but if fully charged overnight lasts me for what I need all day

    Tried it but it keeps yanking the cord out of the wall socket when I drive off.

    Does your screen not rotate?
    I always use the space. Just turn your phone upside down and the charger is on top.

    I think the wall socket would still win....

    Do you use it as a dash or window mount?.

    I use it stuck on the windscreen. They do supply a self adhesive smooth plastic disc so you can attach it to a dash but I didn’t want to adhere anything to the dash permanently.

    Also, cheaper at Halfords. Not sure how you’d get one though, following BoJo’s announcement..

    bugger... if you have the comfort dash, there's no phone (cup) holders. I use a kenu vent mount and a cable to the USB port. Works well as long as you shut off the vent in the winter to stop the phone overheating.

    I have no buttons to the right of the head unit, they’re all blanks. Is there a way to repurpose one to be a phone holder? I.e mount a holder to one of those, it would then be replaceable so no holes in the dash. Don’t want to block the blowers

    Nice idea, slight sticking point with google maps is that it doesn’t.

    I like the quadlock. Ideally id like to have something near to the gearstick. Ive thought about using the blanks myself so they can be replaced if needed. Im not reaaly keen on windscreen mounts.

    I’ve got the QuadLock, too. I looked at fitting it in the van, but it seems to be an angle thing with the mount, them being flat and all.

    I received one of their marketing emails for the wireless charging mount, but recall it being pretty pricy

    @fezza68 I use one of these with their case, much slicker than quadlock I thought and plenty of mounts too. Official Ducati system too. Adhesive Mount Pro

    I stuck mine to the left of my dash in between the glove box and cool box? on my comfort dash. Short cable to usb and perfect, I'll take a picture later

    I use theses magnetic air vent phone holders. Cheap off flea bay. Just need a metal plate placing in the back of your case.

    That looks like just the thing for me but ive not got the comfort dash. Do you think it would work on the other side of the dash where the 6 blanks are?.
