Hey everyone,

I have a 2021 Custom Trailboss. I'm just curious where people put their phone while using Apple carplay/Android auto? Because there isn't a compartment or anything under the control panel. I have a phone cord going from the media port to where my phone sits on the center console but I was wanting to hide the cord better and wanted to see what everyone else does? Thoughts? Thank you in advance
 
I posted this a while back, but since you have asked ...
That panel there that wasn't doing anything is probly not expensive, so drilling a hole seemed not so risky. A plastic Pin from solar panel wiring actually, and a Clamp-type Phone Holder. Seems this could be achieved in a variety of ways.

Do I recommend it? Nope. But, it works for me. I am not ready to stick a 3M pad on the dash, or wedge something into the crevasses.

I am decently pleased with Carmount. Small solid unit that can be re-positioned (they claim). It was about $25 shipped for one (reduced cost for more). Not many places in the TB with no console to the dash. I have a thick Otterbox defender case so I had to mount the magnet to the case. Minimal space and I can easily reach the climate control knob. It can be turned and does pivot and stays. I had to position the magnet there to still use my wireless home charger.

I just installed the Bullet Point Mounting plate that sits in the dash tray above the infotainment unit. It comes with their universal holder if you want. I am adding a MagSafe holder from ProClipUSA so I can get as wireless as possible… or at least hide the wires as well as I can.

This mount does require drilling 4 small holes however, if you remove the mount, the tray liner goes right back in and covers up the drill holes. Solid holder.

 
Picked this up for a few bucks.

I did this one as well. Pricey but rocks solid.

I'm a couple weeks in on this and I love it. I replaced the universal phone holder, that comes with the Bullet Point, with a MagSafe iPhone charger from ProClip. No sliding the phone in or trying to squeeze it into the spring mounted sides. Just place it on the MagSafe and go.

Next update is to add the WAMS wireless CarPlay module. All wireless and a clean dash and center console.

I went with Bullet Point as well. I installed it yesterday and drove with it for the first time today. I noticed on bumpier roads it tends to bounce up and down a bit. It seems like there is too much flex in the plastic you have to drill into to install the well nuts. How does yours work for you?

Solid for me so far but I've only had the weight of my iPhone so far. I'm planning to add a dash cam in the near future.

I haven't had an issue with bouncing, which is good because I am using just a magnet for my phone.
