there is a 12v port in center console storage bin
There is 12v in the center storage area ... So, I may just tuck the phone there when I'm driving. Except for ease of grabbing it when I get out of the car there's little need to have it sitting out. Besides it just flops over when I do any spirited cornering whether it's in the cup holder area or in the "ash tray" thingie.

That would make it super convenient to store, charge and USB.
Phones change configurations so often it hasn't made sense for me to buy a snap-in holder for $100+$$s. That would have cost me lots since my BMWs have had that capability for 10+ years and I've changed phones nearly every year
