I'm guessing that most of you, like me, have gone round and round with where/how to best mount a cellphone holder. I'm NOT a fan of the suction cup on the windshield style holders (plus they literally ALWAYS fall off unexpectedly OR you can hardly pry them off with a putty knife), I REALLY dislike the holders that clip onto one of the blades in the vents, and I've used a Weathertech type cup mount for a few months now and can tell you from experience that it just sits too far back in the console to be convenient (not to mention that it pretty much makes the other cup holder useless because it sticks out JUST enough to be in the way). So here's my fix! (sorry this is so long, by the way) Having recently acquired a higher end hobbyists level 3D printer, I searched for options and came across ONE that was a dismal failure... UNTIL I tweaked it, multiple times. It uses a combination of the 3D printed base and the actual piece that clamps the phone (available on AMZ for nine bucks), and fits PERFECTLY into the small half moon looking pocket on the upper right side of the gear shifter. The only issues I see are that it covers the tuning knob (which I have never used, not even once, so no problem there, lol) and the arm could stand to be a bit taller (higher up from the console) because the gear shifter handle touches it on the right side when in park. Makes you have to sort of grab it with just your thumb and first two fingers to pull up on that bottom button and pull it back into drive. Once there it's obviously fine, and is at the perfect level AND angle. I'm moderately bothered by gear shifter/PARK thing, but honestly, that makes up about .01% of the time you are in the car, so for now, I will live with it. I my revise it later (extend that arm a bit longer) and if I do, I will share again (in a not so wordy way, LOL). I should also mention that this incorporates the familiar swivel ball mount that allows you to turn the phone to landscape position and makes grabbing the gearshift handle much easier, and lastly, this can also be made using the magnetic mount, which would eliminate most of the gearshift handle issue. (I am using this in my Super Stock, but I believe this holder will work in pretty much ANY of the newer Challengers (manual transmission I have NO idea about).
