I have my phone mounted in a Brodit holder just below the radio. It's a neat place to have the phone since it's close to the charger that sits in my cigarette lighter socket. The problem I've been having is that I can't get a consistantly good signal for the GPS on my phone. So, I figured I take a crack at improving it (without installing a 2-DIN unit with a stronger GPS module).

I picked up one of those keychain-sized GPS receivers with bluetooth, velcroed it on top of the parcel shelf and ran the power cable to the 12V socket in the boot. I had an old USB car charger from HTC that I'm using to supply power to the GPS receiver. Now I just connect my phone to the GPS receiver via bluetooth and enjoy properly quick GPS fixes in the car. I'm well pleased with the result, but a proper 2-DIN install would of course be a much cooler way to go. :D
