Where do you keep your nav or phone

Looking for ideas on where to keep my cell and Nav while driving. I'm not a fan of window mounts and was wondering if anyone found a dash mount? first glance does not appear to be many options for location... thanks!

My cell phone goes in my Safari Straps cell phone case on the roll bar.

I have a windshield mount with suction cups and the base rests on the Daystar center dash tray. Saying that, don't get it. When it gets hot out, my phone gets so hot it shuts down and even though it is charging it actually runs the battery down on the charger. This is when the Jeep is parked, not while driving. I only have to forget it for a little while and hone is dead.

otterbox

I'm a huge fan of the otterbox cases ... it's got a grip on the back that keeps it from sliding on most any surfaces... so i end up just putting it on the rubber right below the gear shift. Plus the otterbox is durable as heck, perfect complement to a jeep wrangler IMO. Check out this video ...

Love my Otterbox. It falls out of my jeep all the time(not moving) and my iPhone is always safe

I'm a fan of keeping it between my legs. I always have the ringer off, so then I know web it vibrates.

I've got the Proclip mount. It's definitely the best there is, IMO. I have an iPhone, and around town, use it as my GPS (it has traffic).

I second the Vector Offroad product. you can attach any RAM mount accessory, so the sky's the limit with what you want to attach.

Devium Dash Radio for iPhone

Attachment 115418

If you have one
Just saw this today. Use it for your phone, music and your GPS. Don't know what you do about a radio though, haven't really read about it yet

I seen a bean bag holder that you can "flop" on your dash that looks pretty useful. But after looking at some of these other holders people are putting up, its hard to make up my mind on what I would really want. Pretty cool holders on here.....

Got the Droid X windsheild mount. Fits perfect in the dash hole and is a nice eye level for using my phone for GPS , MP3 player, and hands free cell.
