He's actually asking where you tapped for the boost signal. Not what you tapped with, I believe.

recently found a phone holder that's built for our F30 3 series. CNC holding bracket with strong magnet, looks freaking clean and awesome with practical usage. the bracket was secured using 4 small screws at four corner, I once put my iPad on to test out how strong the magnet was. it was very strong holding the iPad in place.

Very interesting. How is the installation, is it a direct replacement of the stock reinforcement plate? thanks!

yes that's right. the location where I install the boost tap does get -3 psi at idle but that's the best I can get.
