That Panavise one looks like a $0.50 piece of hardware from Lowes, sort of like what this guy did.

+1 for Proclip phone mount. They use the brodit product. I purchased an Iphone specific holder and used their center console mount. I could not be happier for the money spent.

i have a 2013 ST. Is there a way to drag a USB charging cable into the center console?

I have a Pro-Clip mount with the iphone5 pass-through charging.

I cant figure out a way into the center console without drilling.

I never found one. Besides, you'd have to drill a hole big enough for one of the ends of the cable. Granted, the lightning connector is pretty small now.

I have a pro-clip on the A-pillar and go down the weather striping to the underside of the dash. Then under the dash over to the plastic of the center console. I just tuck under that until back by my seat next to my hip. Then I come out from underneath the plastic and run it out in the open next to my seat and just go in under the lid.

Yeah, its visible, but really, you'd only see it if you were in the back seat. And, at that, its not very intrusive, especially with a black usb extension cable. All of the slack is zip tied up under the dash.

Doesn't the backup camera use those jacks in the center console? If so, how do they get into it? Or is there another input somewhere for the camera?

Wow. That Kuda mount looks pretty good. Does it match the interior pretty well?

Also .. The site sells the basic mount piece that attaches to the dash. How do you attache the piece that connects to the phone? Do you just drill or screw into the dash piece?

It seems best to use a universal mount in case you switch phones so you don't have to re-drill new holes? I am trying to figure out how it all kind of fits together.

I was thinking of just getting the four prong connector and then using another mount that way it can be interchangeable with devices as long as it fits the four prongs mount.

I see the Kuda mount appears to clear the 5spd shifter. I just picked up a Galaxy Note2 and its huge (awesome, but giant). Can anyone comment on if the proclip mount will easily clear the 5spd shifter in 5th gear with a giant phone in place?

Also, awesome thread. I love the information on this site.
