DX3 owners... cell phone holder and general organizer?

I love my DX3 but I was wondering if anyone has come up with a solution for a basket of some sort to place below the center dash. While this could be for any brand RV, I asked DX3 owners because I also want to know if anyone came up with a great placement for their cell phone.

I originally threw my phone in the slot above the driver but it's slanted and more than once I've had my phone hit me in the head at 3am while driving.

I started putting it in the cup holder but now that the weather has gotten warmer, I find myself sliding it in-between the cupholder and the water bottle that's in there.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Mark

Look at proclip. No screws, clips to the top portion of the dash, holds phone firm.

I bought one at Walmart that works great. No cup holders, but a bunch of compartments. Stores DW and my phone, tire monitor, tissues, mints, and several other items.

I'm with Halla on this one. Take a look at the Proclip. Here ask a couple of pics of my DX3 with a Proclip and iPhone. Stable and viewable.

Same mount, same location. I have a flat usb to lightning cable that comes from the radio to the spot to plug it in.

I put the Fabrication 5 steel console in my spanking new DX3. I have mixed feelings, first it is $352.00 including shipping. The lower bins are difficult to reach into, but it does serve a purpose. I have attached a RAM Mount on the 16 gauge platform to conveniently hold my wife's and my phones. All in all I am 75% satisfied.

I donít understand why that fabricated console for $352 seems to be so popular on this forum. Do you really need 4 cup holders for 2 people and only 2 useful compartments? Click image for larger version

Mine has many useful compartments. Bought it a couple years ago for less than $25.

I like the weight of the Fab 5 console, no moving around. I also mounted an outlet inside for the GPS. I think it is just a personal choice.

I also like that it is made in the US and we were supporting a small business. just my 2 cents.

OH the cup holders in the Fab 5 hold the drink much better, the dash cup holders seem to rattle and shake the cups more. I barely use the dash cup holders.
