Phone mount

My phone is too big to fit in the center cubby hole underneath the climate controls so it's usually left sliding around on the passenger seat or in the center console. I've tried the search function by entering "phone mount" or "dash mount" to no avail.

At the beginning of this video I can see that he clearly has some sort of phone mount that seems to mount on the air vents however I can't seem to find anything like that online.

Anyone using a phone mount in their F90 or mind sharing where they got it from? TIA!

After trying a couple different mounts over the years (none of which impressed me much) I recently bought a WeatherTech CupFone:

It works well and the nice thing is I can move it between cars.

Look into Pitaka if you have a compatible phone with their magnetic cases

Thanks for the input guys, I ordered the Amazon one since it was only 10 bucks and I also got the WeatherTech one to try out since I can use it in my other vehicles too.
Unfortunately Pitaka doesn't make one for my phone.

Just ordered as well

I just ordered this as well but was worried that the M5 button it surrounds was different than pictured but looks like it shouldn't be an issue.

Have used this one in my cars for years.

Very low profile, connects to the vents and works great. Currently works with my iPhone XI. Not sure it would hold larger phones.

If you have the new iPhone I've found 2 that utilize the MagSafe system which I appreciate.
