Phone holder

Hi all,

With my car over 3 years old and no rtti Iíve started to use Waze via my iPhone XS Max and just wondering if anyone else is in a smiler situation and using a mobile phone holder.

Havenít bought one in years so interested to see what people are using!

Iím tempted to pay for the rtti subscription as I do like using the in built sat nav another option is Apple car play but did the months trial for a quid and didnít get on with it too well due to having 2 mobile phones connected to the car.

Thanks in advance!

I've got a Kenu Airframe+, little vent clip holder. Very subtle when the phone is not in it but holds my 11pro max just fine when I am using it.

Have tried a few different makes/options over the years but Brodit are the best imo. Rock solid and custom designed for the car.

Brodit active (with built in charger) are definitely the best:

I use the Kenu Airframe Wireless and it has been fantastic. It holds the phone in my line of sight for Waze, etc. and the wireless charging is a bonus.

Where does the active cable go? Did you have to pull bits off to get it in?

You could just plug it into the 12v/USB socket, or you can plug it into the spare USB plug in the back of the head unit (using a fakra to USB cable, to also have a media connection to the phone), or what I did is connect a USB C PD fast charging adapter behind the dash going direct to the fuse box.

Also, I wouldn't want to use anything that requires sticking to the car - can it be used without adhesive, i.e.. just clipped in place?

I have not used it personally but these people are offering lifetime RTTI for about 89 euros I think.

Someone on the forum has used them though as it was posted on here

It does get in the way but I just tilt the phone, & its held in place by 4 tiny rivet screws on each corner just adjust each one slowly until its firm enough to your liking.
