    I plug mine in via the usb under the headunit then drop my phone in the tiny pocket next to the center dash. With Android auto i dont need to see my phone at all.

    I got a 90 degree USB plug so I could set mine in the pocket in front of the shifter.

    My one biggest wish though, is that I could control apple/Android CarPlay using the controls on the steering wheel. Having to actually press buttons on the screen seems to run counter against making the car safe.

    Search some of the other threads on here (cell phone mounts). A lot of ppl have come up with some great ideas and show pics! I got my idea from one of our poster's.

    (cross post but here's what I made)




    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.

    Do you foresee any issue with getting the adhesive off if you were to remove it? Apparently it's industrial-strength 3M VHB tape. I like the form-factor of the mount and didn't realize pop sockets were collapsible (always wondered how people fit them in their pockets). I'm just wary of a semi-permanent mount on the headunit.

    This is exactly what I'm looking for! That very place, and no magnets (to keep the wireless charging operational).
    Can you please post a link or name? Does it attach securely-enough (i.e. no wobbling)?

    And thanks for the pics.

    *edit* -- never mind, found the other post where you talk about making it...
