I use an Android phone so not able to run it on my Jeep screen. I also have the smaller screen. Good tip with holding my GMRS MXT275 mic. Thanks.I have the single ball cell phone mount in mine. I primarily got it to hold my GMRS radio using an adapter from JeepUniq, but I've found myself swapping back to the phone mount when I'm not doing trails. It works well, holds tight, no noises from it. I'm not in love with the location, but I got no better ideas or solutions. I went with the matte finish as I suspected the polished could have a higher potential for glare. I used the extra screws, although they went in so easily I do question how much extra help they're really adding. Unlike others I installed mine with the windshield dropped. For me the easier access is worth it, but I also drop my windshield quite often for easy trails and running around town. I feel like some here are afraid of dropping the windshield when really it only takes a few minutes.
So just in case you weren't aware Gaia can be used on Apple CarPlay and it works fairly well although not as feature rich as the phone version. I prefer to have it up on the larger screen in my Jeep's dash rather than on my phone's screen.
I turn my phone horizontal. This way it does not block anything. But I have the bullet proof.Been using one for a while. It is amazing quality. I don’t love the location but not much out there any better. With my phone it either blocks the vent or the left of the 8.4 screen.
