Arrow Crosstrek Cell Phone Holder

Interested in what everyone is using for a cell holder for the Crosstrek.
I'm looking for something that holds a +5" phone.

I use one like this: StalionŽstand Universal Cell Phone GPS Air Vent Magnetic Car Mount Cradle Holder | eBay

I placed it in the passenger side middle vent. My phone is a Note 4 and it has no problem holding it, even over bumpy terrain. I like this version because you can adjust the viewing angle.

Both of these look cool. The magnetic plate will probably interfere with phones that have wireless charging though.

I don't use a cell phone holder (rather, an automotive GPS navigation unit), but I would recommend taking a look at Ram Mounts, as I've generally been happy with my Ram Mount that mounts to the seat mount holes. No drilling needed.

(not exact part I used but you'll get the idea)
RAM POD I WITH 1" SINGLE SOCKET ARM Unpackaged - RAM-B-316-1U | RAM Mounts

I bent mine so that it fulfilled the following criteria:
* did not lie directly in the path of any of the airbags (including but not limited to, side seat air bags, side curtain air bags, passenger front airbag)
* did not obstruct ability to view outside vehicle
* did not obstruct ability to view existing instrumentation
* easy to view and reach

I went with the Slyde CD mount. I replaced the thumbscrew with an allen screw so it doesn't block the touchscreen.

Will the Slyde CD mount work with my Samsung Note 3. It's kind of heavy and most others I have tried have slouched under the weight after a while. These were all window mounts.
