I have had my Civic for a while now and I thought it was time to get a mobile phone holder as I have been jamming the phone into the cup holder console and closing the lid to hold it in place. Not the most asthetically pleasing way of holding my phone and also I couldn't see who was calling me as I could not see the screen.
I did not want something that hooked onto the central air vets as it would ruin the look of the dashboard and impede the flow of air. Also my phone is pretty large as it's a PDA / mobile device.
I trawled the inter web for quite a while until I came across this company
They import mobile phone holders for a wide range of phones made by a company called Brodit, but the reason I bought my holder from them was that the holder system comes in two parts.
Firstly you select the appropriate holder for your particular make and model of phone.
Secondly you select the appropriate clip (Brodit call them Proclips) that connects the holder to the car, For the Civic you have three different anchorage points (i.e. three different Proclips to choose from). One fits on the air vents on the centre of the dashboard (that I did not want), the second attachs to the passengers side of the centre console (next to the covered cup holder area). The third (which I went for) attachs to the passenger side on the centre console next to the gearlever.
Fitting the Proclip and the holder took less than 5 minutes and all that was needed was a philips screwdriver. No holes where required to be made in any of the fascia on the car.
The holder is very strong and holds the phone very firmly, the holder is also articulated on a ball joint which allows a degree of movement to ensure you can see the screen of your phone.
The holder and Proclip are a bit pricey, but I saw it as an investment as I don't want to have my phone flying around my car as I drive and the Brodit holder and Proclip look very professional and very strong.
All I need now is to get my local dealer to get my HFT system to work properly!!!!
