    Default Phone Mount Ideas

    Hello! I was looking for a clean and tidy way to mount a phone in my 1983 GLX Convertible. The vents are too loose to mount a phone there. Do you guys have any ideas? I was thinking of using a rear view mirror mount like in the attached picture.

    That looks like it would block my vision too much.

    I use a hard rubber wedge to keep my vent from moving with iphone mounted.

    that would be unbelievably distracting to me while driving imho but everyone is different.
    I’m a diehard, I just use my phone for music and toss it on the pass seat. MA is a hands free state anyways

    They also make an aluminum shaft that mounts to the seat rail. use one in the truck for my Ham radio head. works pretty good..

    You could modify take a cup holder of the 1980's that mounts on the door side window...I found mine online but the local truck stops also carry them...

    More weight on the mirror could break it off the windshield button.

    I throw mine under the e-brake handle.
    The last thing I want or need to do when driving my GT is worry about a phone.
    Nothing is really that important to me to have to see my phone while driving.

    I tend to agree but even though i'm old and not supposed to be tech savy, I use my phone for a remote display of my radar detector. This will also give me a gps map including weather map and speeds.
