For many years I've just used Velcro. 'Hooky' side on the dash, soft side on the phone or other device. Cheap, effective, unobtrusive, quick to use.

One of my mates has used these for a long time, they are a bit expensive but are more than worth the money, as a company vehicle driver we change our cars every three years which means buying new clips if the car changes. all the clips are easy to fit as they just slip into gaps in the facia or surround and come with a spacer tool to open the gap.

well worth the money (i think they start at about 30) especially if like our company that dont like you drilling holes or causing any damage to the car.

Velcro sticky hooks, pah they just wear out eventually and never keep anything fixed firmly.

Gone back to XP after trying Windows 7, it was nice but i still prefer XP

The soft side wears eventually (about three years in my usage) when you simply peel it off and replace it, cost < 10p.

Velcro is very sticky - I've seen one Land Rover tow another one with it. (demo by Cockermouth Mountain rescue team)

No video, I was actually there and it was about 20 years ago. It's called real life!

Just looked at it for my Motorhome. It fixes in front of the passenger but states in easy reach of the driver and yes i did choose right hand drive. Very Happy

Considering the time that has past i doubt it would do any good..and like i said im not doubting you in the slightest.

I get the feeling you think i was being obnoxious in some way.? Sad

I seem to have missed this special Velcro that allows you to tilt, swivel and charge a device? Sounds very cool though Laughing

Velcro might be fine for holding a small mobile on the dash but it would be pretty useless for most nav's. And with the cost of my iPhone I'd rather it was cradled by something rather more supportive than some Velcro personally.

But each to their own.
