I bought one from amazon for an iPhone max. It auto clamps when the phone is placed on it. It self detects because It’s wireless charging. It came with a vent mount or a windscreen suction cup and I don’t like those. The vent mount would just allow the phone overheat in winter and I don’t like the windscreen mount.
So I made a new ball mount with a steel clip to replace the one that came with the holder. It doesn't screw into the dash or anything and I used a felt padding on the back to make sure it does not scratch up the trim. So if I sell the car it’s easy to remove and no evidence! Just need to pop the silver trim out a little and push the metal clip behind the trim and push it back. After that the clip is solid.
I routed the power cable down the Centre column and into to the arm rest box and plugged it into the usb port for power. It was just two screws to remove. Overall took me about 15 mins to fit. Pictures attached if it helps anyone for ideas. I did have to enlarge a hole at the bottom of the centre box to allow the usb plug to fit through (this was under the carpet mat in the box and was just a little too small), so I used a file to open it up a little. Maybe if I had a cable with a smaller plug molding it would have gone through without need for any adjustment to the hole.
Because I made a copy of the ball mount the holder can be moved to different angles and orientations easily like it was meant to be. Really pleased with it.
