Anyone have advice or tips for mounting a cell phone in the Subaru Ascent?
I had mine mounted by vent clip but the phone would get hot while running heater. Since then the clip broke and shopping for a new way to mount phone.
The dash is textured and don’t want to obstruct the safety eyes. I don’t want to store the phone in the cup holder or cubby below the radio.
Any advice and tips welcome.
Thanks in advance.

I use a mounting post by ProClips, and one of their slide in mounts. I screwed it into the panel below the shifter.

This isn't the best shot, but you can see it in action in this video (and you can also see why I put it there):

Mine is similar to Roberts...the vehicle mount is identical, but I used a different phone mount because I need to accommodate three different size phones with three drivers.

That’s a really great idea! Where did you get your mount?

Your mount looks like it may be adjustable, can you raise it? Where did you find yours?

The vehicle mount Robert links to is exactly the same one I have...I bought be because of Robert's success. It's not adjustable height but there are multiple lengths available. If I recall, this is the ~6" version and it's located in the "Business" mounts section of the web site Robert links to. His phone mount is in the "consumer" side. Mine is from Amazon.

I have several different phone holders. I’ve always disliked the vent holders since I like my A/C actually blowing on me. And cd mount blocks your screen. The dash mounts are all to far to reach conveniently. The ones that I do like that I have are the cup holder mount and the rear view mirror mount. I’m trying both to see which one I like better. Both have pros and cons so I’m having a hard time deciding. If anybody wants I can post pictures later

I picked up a couple clips on Amazon which work well for me. I turned off this vent so not to blast heat in the winter. The left vent is enough. I can lower or raise the phone in the clip. Don't have to take eyes off road vs cup holders or lower mounts.
