Yeah, which is why I don't even like looking at the Infotainment screen much. Which is why I think the interior of the Tesla Model 3 is pure stupidity - no instrument console. Innovation is one thing, ludicrous innovation is just dumb.

If you’re like me and need a phone holder that accommodates a variety of phone types and sizes, then check this out.

Super clean install accomplished by MacGyvering three separate components.

ProClip Center Dash Mount (Item: 855346)
https://www.proclipusa.com/product/8...ter-dash-mount

iBOLT AMPS Adapter Plate
https://ibolt.co/amps-plate-1187

BE Universal Smartphones Car Air Vent Mount Holder Cradle
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073R68TSH

Handles just about any phone and case combination. For example my wife has a iPhone 7 wrapped in a leather Zover wallet which rules out magnets. While I have the larger iPhone XS Max.

Not a problem for this rig. Doesn’t block access to vents or controls. Spins 360° and didn’t require any tools to assemble or mount. (The 3M VHB™ tape included worked just fine to affix the mounting plate to the AMPS adapter.) And, of course, you retain use of both cup holders.

Add an Apple-certified retractable Lightning to USB cable and you’re in business.

Rock solid and a breeze to release.

Bonus: The cradle’s two-tone color scheme coordinates with the Bolt’s dash.

Price out the door including shipping and tax from Amazon and ProClip was $53.84.

Shout out to timeToy on the chevybolt.org forum for providing inspiration.

This looks perfect. Any chance of your offering step-by-step instructions for dummies?

Proclip has instructions on how to install their dash mount. Link below.

http://docs.proclipusa.com/instructions/855346

Then just fasten the AMPS plate to the Proclip mount. Last step attach the phone holder to the ball stub on the AMPS plate as shown in the photo attached from the Beam mount Amazon listing.

If you would rather have an all black mount they are also available here ...




P.S. Thanks to Dougdawirs for posting the details.

This is what I bought at Wally World, before my EA adventure. The Discover card worked there.

The suction cup is a perfect fit in the bottom of the cup holder. Didn't need to even use the suction feature. The phone sits right above the console, angled towards the driver, with the USB cable plugged in the bottom.
