bike phone holder from amazon:     

Just wanted to share my cheap cell phone mount. I have a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali with the removable / relocatable cup holders. The face of the cup holder assembly is smooth and is a good place to

I used to use a magnet mount that used the CD player. Found it blocked the hvac controls though. Switched to a pop socket vent mount. Its ok. Jiggles more than I like.

*EDIT* Looks like there's a newer model getting good reviews for durability over the old one:

Nice mount but the bouncing of the truck eventually wore the joints out and the suction cup has a gooey material on it to make it stick better.  When you remove it, it leaves some of that gooey stuff behind and it's a real pain to get it off of the windshield.  If you go the route of something like this, DO NOT put it on your dash, it discolors it permanently.

I’ve got a very similar one but mine charges wirelessly. I have it hard wired to the truck so I just place my phone in and it charges. I’ll work on getting pics later.

The one I posted above I had mounted at the top of the windshield so my phone was in landscape right next to the rear view mirror.  It was actually a very nice mount but the roads around her wore it out over the year and a half I had it.

Strong magnet and extremely low profile. The radio bezel is tilted slightly towards the driver which is a perfect viewing angle for the phone.

And yes, thats a blackberry!! (Don't be jealous)

I like the magnet mounts in most of my cars, but every place in this truck that can work seems to block a vent...not an option in Texas heat.

Is have the floor console that has built in cell phone holder up by the power ports. Then I run a charge cable from inside the console to phone. That way I don't have to much excess cable laying down in tray and keeps all the ports up front open and clean. The if I need to see the phones screen out maps I use andriod auto and project to the radio screen.

You can see some pics on their website.    You have a choice of mounts which you slip into the gaps in the trim and then depending on your phone size you choose a device holder.   In my case I have the Angled Dash Mount (for the right side).    It comes with 3m double sided tape, but it holds fine without it and  I've never felt the need to actually use it in any of my cars going 10+ years back.

My last truck had a phone holder that slipped into the CD slot. A year later and it’s still sitting in the glove compartment of the new truck.
With CarPlay in the new truck, I rarely look at the phone anymore. I plug it in and usually just throw it in the storage compartment.
