Was gonna get this but I needed several (4, to be exact) and the >$40 Weathertech price tag was a bit much. I found similar ones on eBay for $7.50 delivered (on a slow boat from China).....I ordered one as a "tester" and it was great. Plenty of adjustment for phone size and cupholder size, and it holds everything snugly...so I ordered 3 more. Likely will not last as long as Weathertech but for 20% of the price I will risk it. They also have ones with extended and adjustable necks that might help move the phone farther away from the shifter.....

Another vote for ProClip here. It works awesome and the customer service was great when I called.

I have a real hard time complaining about price on a functional accessory for a $70k+ car that I didn't need in the first place.

Doesn't seem like much, but that is what all the talk is about with China stealing intellectual property.

LOL. OK. If you like to pay 5 times more than you need to for something, you are either stinking rich or will not be affording such luxuries for very long.

If that is the case then Weathertech is an IP thief (which I don't beleive that they are, at least in this case). This is a new product for them but these things have been around for years in various shapes and forms. A virginia boat dealer even jury-rigged one for a depth finder for me back in 2007. (for various reasons I am sensitive to IP theft and I actually checked before ordering and neither Weathertech nor MacNeil has any published patents or pending patent applications on anything like this, at least based on my quick searching). Macneil tends to rely on slick and targeted marketing to sell their products and to gain market share rather than patents, anyway (and to justify their pricing).

I just throw mine on the passenger seat. I couldn't tell you the last time I used my phone while out in my Z06. Why ruin an awesome driving experience.

Proclip here with the magnetic base. I put the magnet on the inside of my cell case and works great. Location and angle are spot on and it can be removed with no damage to the interior.

I tend to agree, but I live in VA where radar detectors are illegal. Waze is my radar detector......(and more effective, IMO), and sometimes I will switch between Google and Waze. The phone holder is very helpful.....

My Android auto works perfectly with the USB charging cord and I run the Waze on the main monitor in my C7 ZO6 infotainment system and I'll run Google play music I'll run Pandora music, so many different apps available with Android auto

Not all my cars have Android Auto, and I admit that sometimes I just don't bother to plug it in......

I keep it in the cup holder. I only have it for emergencies. I like to concentrate on driving instead of texting or talking on a mobile phone. Sorry! But Iím old school.

Where do you put it when you have......a passenger?

I can count on one hand the number of passengers I've had in my Corvettes during the past 20 years. My wife isn't a big fan, so I'm usually out and about by myself.

Regardless of what I'm driving, I leave it in my pocket.
