I run the 67 Design rail system with an iphone and Gaia gps for Nav. The install was easy and the entire unit is secure and accessible. Outstanding American made product. I remember reading something about not leaving your phone exposed to the sun in a closed parked vehicle due to the heat. I suppose that should be common knowledge and applies to all the mounting systems. I have used the mount in 100+ temps (with AC) and the phone hasn't overheated.

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 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.

Thanks for all the feedback I ended up going with RubiGrid™ Jeep Wrangler JL/JLU & Gladiator JT Platform Dash Mount × 1 UniversalPhone Holder from bulletpointmountsolutions.com. Same concept as 67 Design but a bit cheaper and can add other devices. This one comes with a GoPro camera mount.

Not sure if the OPs statement closes this thread. But if it helps others...

I have the 67 Designs and was super excited to use it. However, I run a thicker case with credit cards and it won’t stay put in the 67 Designs spring-tension mount - too thick. I had to get a Ram X mount to attach to the 67 ball mount location for it to work. Just something to consider based on your phone case and wallet approach :)

Installed the bullet point mounting system. Love the grid look with the dash and hood.

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.
I turn my phone horizontal. This way it does not block anything. But I have the bullet proof.
