I'm having trouble finding a cell phone holder for my Ghibli. I'd prefer something that mounts in the light socket in between the cup holders near the shift lever. I am open to a cup holder setup as well. Galaxy S5.

Any thoughts?

Bump.
Where are you mounting your cell phone? I bought a really cool phone case with a built in magnet and a vent clip with built in magnet. It's super cool, but it seems like the left vent is the only place I can see it. And its really awkward. I need it to be on the right hand side of the steering wheel to be functional. I'm really stumped on this one. Help out with ideas guys!!!!!!!

so if you want to plug something in the lighter socket between the cup holders, i would suggest you should use this

2-Port USB Car Cigarette Socket Mount Holder (IKHD16)

If you want something to fit in the cup holders use this

Car Cup Mount Holder with 3 Sockets and 2 USB Charging Port 2.1A (IKHD28)

Now with the above product for the cup holders, will only work for the base models since, there is wood trim around it on the S model, which prevents it from going all the way in and it will scratch the wood.

I will post some more in a bit of time.

I'm using this in my Range Rover now. When my Maserati arrives I will be looking to use this too although I have already seen there is no real "obvious" place.

Steelie Car Mount Kit



I have chosen the "dark mirror" interior so the cupholder is open. I am hoping I will be able to put the little metal ball somewhere as indicated in this picture so the phone rests horizontally.

What did you end up going with? I'm tempted to get this: Amazon.com: Mediabridge Smartphone Cradle with Cup Holder Mount - Car Cup Holder Mount for iPhone 6/6 Plus/5S/5C/5/4S, Samsung Galaxy S5/S4/S3/Note II/Note 3/ Note 4, HTC One, Motorola Razr Maxx HD (Fits Smartphone Widths of 2"-4"): Cell Phones & Acc

Cupholder makes some sense since the power plug is right next to the cupholders - and it can easily be stowed away in the center console when not in use. Vent mounts don't make a lot of sense with the way the Ghibli vents are tilted. I typically only want a mount for longer trips where I need Waze to give me warnings. On short trips, my phone typically just rides on my lap.

*caveat: I don't own a Ghibli, yet. Still awaiting delivery on my '16 order.

I would check size of section that fits cupholder. Ghibli cup holder is small.
