Where to place your mobile phone

Love this car. Just purchased it for my wife and am struggling with the best option for placing her cell phone in the car. Looking for any suggestions. Thanks ahead of time.

Congrats on the new C-HR. If your wife isn't big on drinks, the cup holder can be used to fit her phone.

I put a "Scosche MAGDM MagicMOUNT Magnetic Dash Mount" just in front of the cubby compartment (below the climate controls) and "behind" the front most drink holder. I find the cubby to be pretty useless because its so small so no major loss there... Run a 3 foot cable from the 12volt outlet in the center console.... Works Out well for me....

Do you have a pic of the placement? I tried to "dry fit" a mount there for my 7+ and it seemed as of my phone was too big.

I have bought a tray for the center console and put my phone there.
There is a 12v output in the center console so it can charge also.

That's a nice accessory for added storage, but I tend to use my phone a lot for Google Maps (directions). Kinda hard to view in there

This works really well for me... I have a pixel xl (5.5" screen also). If you use the forward most cup holder and a tall cup, it does block the view however. No issues obviously if you use the other cup holder in the center console.

Not bad, but a little pricey.
