Hi @FrankDM - have you got an iPhone 12 which won't charge wirelessly?PHONE MOUNT
Does anybody has a good idea to install a phone mount?
I seem to think you can set it up to read your messages and emails to you if you pair your phone. A much safer alternative to trying to read them.I’m not a taxidriver, but indeed I like to keep an eye on messages or urgent emails.
I love the clean interior of my Polestar Performance with the Nappa and wood deco.
That is why I’m looking for a clean solution...
I would like to have it just left of tablet so it touchable while my hand is on the driving wheel. This how I had it in my previous car (Volvo XC90).
I guess it was never designed to need to mount a phone. Hopefully as time goes by there will be more apps available which may enable you to use the centre display.I do agree!!
It’s not to read or write any emails while driving, just to see and judge if there are urgent notification and then pull over if urgent response is required.
We also need specific navigation apps on the phone like Glympse or live location from WhatsApp. That is to navigate to a specific location shared by the other party.
So this post is not about why I want to mount my iPhone, but rather a question for ideas how to mount a phone in the Polestar 2.
Thanks, but I Want to look at it as well. I like the visual announcements. It will be in my direct line of view, so no distraction . And I know you all want to point out there is no need to look at it. But for now Android Automotive is not diverse enough to totally rely on the system alone. So there are some edge cases when a phone mount is required. And that was the initial question.
So i've received the mount. I couldn't give it a nice spot. So if someone has a better. idea I really want to know 😊.In the Netherlands we have a app called "Flitsmeister" which helps you with speed cameras and hazards on the road. This is not available on Android Automotive yet. That is why I was searching for a phone mount to show those at a nice angle. I found a mount that clips and wanted to clip it to the side of the middle console or between the gauge cluster and the central screen. If I got it I will post my findings if it suits the car.
