The '05 Mitsubishi Outlander has a little coin holder right above the gear shift. It fits great standing up in it. I have an INCASE rubber "skin" on it so it doesn't move at all even when cornering or accelerating.
1) Pro-Fit Vehicle Specific mount and miGRIP Universal Adapter from Pro-Fit International. About $50.00 total.
2) PA11 iPod/iPhone Vehicle adapter made by USA SPEC from Mobile Car Audio who currently has a $20 discount on it. Current price: $119.00.
So for about $170.00 you have a great vehicle mount within full view and access to the driver and seamless integration of the iPod portion of your iPhone into your current vehicles audio system. Took me under 1 hr to install everything in my Dodge Ram 2500.
I have one of those mounts that goes into the CD slot on the radio. I rarely use it, except on trips as I don't want to pay attention to my phone while driving. It can wait until I get to where I'm going. My phone normally is in it's belt clip when I'm in the car.
Mine is attached to the dash using one of those round magnetic mounts at the bottom of a vent. The metal piece on the phone is attached to the back of a clear thin case. Bluetooth automatic connection every time I get in the car makes it ring and talk hands-free, muting the music. Voice activation lets me dial if needed. 2014 Mazda3.
