    Good afternoon!

    Quick question for everybody! I just got my 2017 tundra crewmax with all the space and crevices in the tundra where do you like to place your cell phone? I'm still trying to figure out where I can place my phone without it rattling/sliding around.

    I put mine in my pants pocket.
    Everything my phone does I can see on my screen texts, calls, music, cause here if cops see you holding your phone while driving it's a big ticket.

    distracted driving in Alberta is a $287 fine and three demerit points

    I don't use my phone while driving... It's more that I don't like stuff in my pockets while sitting.

    Search the forum for the threads on phone mounts, there are some nice ones! I use a simple "scosche" magnetic mount.

    Lol I do that while at stop lights... never while driving... lol :anonymous:

    I'm not a huge fan of cell phone mounts... either they just don't look good or i don't like the placement of where they go. I have one of the X-Ram Mounts that go on the window... I don't like stuff on the window cause I feel like it blocks my view... even though I put it some where it doesn't lol

    OUCH

    Yeah I was just joking. I NEVER use my phone when driving. If I got caught, it would be automatic suspended license and negative paperwork which would essentially mean 10 years of military service down the toilet because it would prevent me from reenlisting. Definitely not worth it.

    I saw cops in Vancouver hiding behind light poles at an intersection waiting for people to pull out their phones while stopped. Cop goes up, grabs their license and tells them to turn into a parking lot to get their ticket.

    I leave my phone in my pocket. Don't really need my phone while driving especially with the entune Bluetooth capabilities. You can even read your text messages on the screen.

    This.
    The magnetic mount is pretty much flush and there's no big bulky mount sticking out. The magnet clips to your vent.

    Top of the center console/ arm rest fits an iPhone 7 plus perfectly.

    I'll put my wallet up towards the front of the console on the flat space where the "useless" cup holder is (mine holds quarters currently).
