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
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.
