Phone holder options

I like things being neat and tidy in my car and am looking for the best way to hold my iPhone. I use the gps a bit so i want something that sits higher but dont really want to mount it on the window.
Does anybody have any suggestions or pictures of what you have done?

It's easy to read and reach.

no offense, but I wouldn't trust a magnet that is stuck to my dash via 3m tape to hold my $1000 phone!

Sucks that you gotta stick this metal thing on your phone though, which makes it thicker and heavier.

its a good idea but I agree. I like the look of the holdmyphone ones. They have two options by the look of it.

Since there's Bluetooth in the car, my iPhone sits in my pocket or in a cupholder in the centre console. What with what goes on in traffic these days, I've got enough on my plate just driving. My music is duplicated on a USB stick, so I don't have to worry about fiddling with my phone to hear tunes through the AUX.

I had a holdmyphone one in my old GTI. Top quality product and no screws- it just fits into your existing trim. I had a mount because I used my iPhone for TomTom and had the handsfree kit plugged into it.

I haven't bothered with one in my 135 as I've got Bluetooth and iDrive!
