I’ve been trying to find decent phone holders for our Peugeot Boxer campervan and 2015 Land Rover Defender.

The Ram Mount options don’t seem as good for four wheelers as they are for bikes. The X bracket is brilliant but I can’t find the right way to fit it to the dash board.

I’ve found the Brodit Pro Clip, which would need adjusting between my work iPhone 8 Plus and my personal IPhone x

The Brodit is best part of £50, which if it fits a treat would be OK, but I’d be disappointed if it was a bit shit.

Anyone tried a Brodit phone holder ?

Yes had about 3. They hold the phone well and don't mark it. I don't use the ball joint though, I screw the holder to a clip I've got on the vent. (keeps the phone cool :cool:)

There are usually two parts to a Brodit system. The base, which is specific to the vehicle and the phone holder which is specific to the phone. I have used them in lots of of vehicles and for several different phones and they have always worked well. But nowadays I use a generic phone holder with clamping sides and a wireless base charger. Much cheaper than the Brodit holder and can be used for any phone that supports wireless charging.

There are lots on ebay. The trouble is most of them do not have a flat back to allow for mounting on the Brodit car mount. So you could either use the mounting system supplied, either window sucker or vent mount, or cut it off flat to the back of the mount and glue it onto the Brodit mount.

I actually made mine using a spare clamp holder I already had which i cut the vent mount off of. I then attached a small wireless charger I also had spare to it using Gorilla tape.

I have a brodit for a 10 inch Tablet, there was a holder for the VB air remote screwed to the dash to my left, I used the same screw holes and sat the remote in the cup holder. When I sell the van I can just replace the remote holder and it will be as from the factory. The brodit mounts are excellent.

We have a brodit mount for the SatNav and interchange it between both our car and 'van using their wedge shaped plates. Go on the DSL website and find out which one you want then put the number into an Ebay search box...

I have used the same one for 8 years now for a 7 inch sat nav, fixed to the air vent on dash - no screws required.
