I just received and installed the Pro-Fit Utimount.

http://www.pro-fit-intl.com/UltiMount/

Very inexpensive $19.95 + $3.95 shipping from http://www.discountcell.com

I installed it just to the left of the glove compartment and most devices should be flush against the top of the shift console. It's very flexible because the mounting unit sits on top of a rotating ball mechanism that can lock into place. That way, either the driver or your passenger can use it easily. By putting it here, it also minimizes the distance that any wiring has to go from the aux/power plugs.

Unfortunately, I can't stick anything on it yet because it takes 72 hours for the adhesive to cure. I plan on putting my ipod there or my PocketPC...looking for a GPS solution right now...

Here are some pics (before anything attached). The faceplate can be removed to reveal an AMPs compatible hole pattern.




Due to my positioning, it has limited left movement but adequate. However, it can really move to the right, but move it too far and it will block the glove compartment from opening. I don't forsee it to be a problem though.

Here are a few pictures with the iPod actually mounted on the Ultimount.



I have a case for my iPod with a small mounting clip on the back which I use to mount onto the Ultimount. Optionally, you could purchase one of those cell-phone holders, remove the clipmount and screw the holder in.


Tilted so that the passenger can have easy access. I thought about putting it on the center console above the subwoofer but I like the little higher positioning and easier passenger access. However, I did notice that taller people (6' and up) could easily bump the iPod with their knee.

Close-up side view. You can see the little locking lever just behind the "ball" joint.
