    Having bought my dash carpet set from 'rugs for bugs', I am now somewhat perplexed as to what actually fits into the numerous mostly tiny cubby holes. At least whatever goes in won't slide around. The main issue at the moment though is where to place my phone. I've got Apple play along with the bigger screen, so I have to plug the phone into the USB portal, which is some way away. I want to keep the USB/charger lead short, anyone else see this as an issue, and is there a solution out there.

    I take it you don’t have a comfort dash? If that’s the case I used to put my phone on the small shelf by the dash USB which is enabled for carplay.

    I just upgraded to the wider centre console and it’s migrated into the pocket on the top.

    Both positions keep the lead quite short.

    I hope that makes sense?

    Yeah, that does make sense thanks. I suppose I'm not used to not having my phone close by on a cradle. I'll get used to Appleplay. I've indeed got the builders dash. And I'm using my van as a van. It's in for mods soon, so watch this space......

    There is a phone holder that sits in the cup holder, can't remember the name, it's on Amazon.

    20180907_160038.jpg Thanks Sherbs for making me aware of this phone holder. It didn't really work exactly where you had yours, but I have mounted it beside the vent which is more stable and right in my line of vision. The rotating joint ball goes into the vent which does unfortunately stop it moving up and down, but I keep the vent pointing up anyway, and you can still open and close it. It's a great position for the phone as I need reading glasses to see the phone, but not for driving, so I can keep my reading glasses perched on the end of my nose while seeing over them to drive. Half lens reading glasses probably be better though.
