Iphone Dash Mount

I've been searching for awhile to find a decent phone mount. Tried a Griffin Universal for a bit but those flop around to much in 1 Ton. Looking for a clean rigid mount, if anyone know of one please let me know.

THANKS

Here is what I am thinking about getting. It is not Iphone specific, but it looks like it will be nice and rigid.

It looks like you can also mount it in between plastic panels of the dash. So I am thinking of mounting it right above the vent to the right of the steering wheel in between the plastic panel seems of the dash.

That looks decent. Have you found source to buy from?
Please keep me updated love to see it mounted.

Thanks

Don't forget to disable "Shake to Shuffle" on your phone. Went through 20 songs in 100ft the first time I installed it.

Pictures would be great, is the Ram Mount just suction cup mount?

Thanks

I mounted mine right beside my 4WD switch. Solid mounted and does not move and gives you adjust-ability for user preference. I am very happy with it.

Here is the link to my Photobucket account.

Oh yes I see.
Problem I will have is my backup sensor and traction control buttons are there.
I'll look around the dash for another place to screw to.

thanks

Once you pull off that piece you can see into the opening and I originally thought of mounting it on the larger dash piece just below it. I also considered mounting it to the front of the console kinda centered on the left cupholder for alignment with myself while driving. Check out RAM Mounting Systems, Inc.
They have a pile of different options available. I got the iPhone bracket then just ordered a arm that I felt suitable. Good luck
