Phone holder options?

I have been looking all around and I have still not been able to find a phone holder that won't install in the AC vent. Not a fan of windshield suction cups either...

Any links will be appreciated

Thanks!

Weathertech cup phone. I don’t think the version with the arm extension was available when I got mine last year, but I’m happy with it. https://amzn.to/3dRm9L2

I purchased a short lightning (iPhone) to USB cable to go with. https://amzn.to/2CNA1sE

Thank you! Unfortunately I am OCD with my cup holders (I like them to hold cups lol) and I'd rather get something where I won't have to look out of where I'm supposed to drive... it may do absolutely no effect using it, but it'll drive me absolutely crazy knowing that it's a cup holder lol

I have one that slides into a CD slot. I slid it between the passenger side dash trim and the passenger center vent. Close at had, still have my cup holders. Doesn't block the window or the CID display for the driver.

I use this one on my X1. It has 2 vent holders. https://www.amazon.com/Adjustable-Co...3904014&sr=8-2

Used to give them as a tip to UBER drivers that would hold their phone, before you could tip in the app, when I would catch them on sale.

I put one of these in our 2013 X1. It clips firmly to the A pillar.
