    I once used a vent mount, not very good in the winter. The phone actually overheated. A none issue for me now, as my Si has wireless charger and Nav so the phone just gets thrown onto the charger pad.

    Prototype is done! So I 3D printed the front piece which actually captures the phone, I then bought off Amazon molding plastic and used it to get the shape of the center console pillar. Here's a link to the plastic. If you've never used it you gotta check it out for your next project. This stuff is incredible. At 150° it turns soft and you can mold it however you like, once it cools down it turns harder than hell. You can then drill it, sand it, do whatever you want to it. And, if it doesn't work out you can heat it up and try again.

    Here's what I came up with.:

    The way I have it mounted is Velcro, this way in case my leg does bump it, it'll just "break off" and not damage my interior.

    My next goal is go back down to my old college (go Bobcats) and 3D scan my design so then I can easily print a clean, on piece part that'll be ready to install in any civic with the same center console.

    I LOVE THIS placement with one minor grip... Can this design be reversed and placed on the passenger side of the console? I don't want to have a phone right next to my steering wheel like that and I don't touch my phone other than to put it back from sliding around the center cubby area...

    Kinda sorta. I got the piece I'm mating the holder to 3D scanned. The file is a PAIN IN THE _______ . But I hope to have it fixed/healed soon so I can get something going next week. Below is a picture of the file

    Nice... Can you please make one for the other side of the console? I have a Type R which is of course 6MT and the position you have would be in the way of the shifter...

    Thanks to @pgn for the idea. I've bought so many different amounts in the past that I held off on getting 1 for my Civic. I didn't want to use a vent holder for it because those 2 center vents are a single piece and didn't want to risk breaking one of those. I'm sure that replacement piece is not cheap .

    So I took my cd slot ramkon mount and replaced the clamp style to a magnetic style. Working great so far .

    I use a very simple solution. I put the phone on top of the radio. it tucks behind the screen nicely right in front of the otherwise useless hazard button. I discovered this the other day when I went on a trip, definitely not buying a mount now, might put a couple pieces of foam tape or something there to help it from sliding right when making a hard left turn. it stayed put my whole journey though.

    I would take a picture, but I usually use my phone for that. If it's too hard to understand, I guess I could take a picture with my camera old school style, but I think that's probably unnecessary.

    I see you have the Kuda mount over in the passenger side. What do you place on that one?

    This is exactly where I have mine too! I believe I have the second generation though.
