Best cell phone holder for 2017 Outback

First post here...I bought my Outback 1 week ago...first time owning a Subaru.

What are recommendations for Cell phone holders? Dash mount, CD mount, vent mount, others? If you can please provide direct Amazon links.

Proclip center mount. I have it and love it. It doesn't affect eyesight either. Check out my "she has arrived" post and you can see how I routed wires as well. Confrats

I use a mountek magnetic mount that goes in the cd tray. I used the same one in my '11 wrx as well, and it's fantastic.

I purchased the Exogear Exomount Touch Car mount last year when I had a different vehicle and it works great with my 2016 2.5i Limited w/ Eyesight and iPhone 6s:

Keep in mind SOA recommends against mounting anything on certain areas on the dash and windshield because of the airbags and Eyesight (check your manual).
My mount is placed in the lower left hand corner of the windshield. Tip: for this mount apply almost boiling water to the suction cup so it adheres well (rather than the recommended warm). Over three months in the hot desert southwest, a few sudden jolts, and it still sticks.

Why someone would need a cellphone holder for a 2017 Outback baffles me. In my 2016 3.6, my smartphone remains in its case on my belt.

Pistol on one side of belt, ammo on the other side. No room for phone.

Maybe because Waze is a better navigation solution than what's built into the dash. At least most of the time.

I also charge my phone when I'm in the Outback and not sure how that would work when attached to your belt.

In my Forester, I use my iPhone as a Dash Cam.

I find the best cell phone holder when behind the wheel my pants pocket. Will never understand the obsession many have with the cell phone.

Best cell phone holder for 2017 Outback

I use a CD mount. Works perfectly, and could also be used as a dash cam that way. I keep mine mounted vertically as I like the Waze presentation better that way. Then the camera is just over the top of the dash.

Hardly an obsession, just using it as the useful tool it is.
