    That would be awesome. My biggest issue is actually running my power cable across my console to the mount. It just hangs there and gets all kinds of in the way.

    I got this one that attaches to the air vent and has fast wireless charging built in. Qi-Infinity Fast Wireless Car Charger Dock; 1.5A (2A Max, 10 Watt) For Samsung S6 Edge/Note5 & Compatible with Qi-Enabled Devices https://www.amazon.com/dp/B018INZ10O...cUvbUpU5086843

    It works great. You do need a fast charge adapter which I already had anyway.

    So you are using it in the vent? I have never used a vent mount before. Does it hold it pretty secure?

    Now they just need to make a powered CD slot mount.
    Amen. They did it with the cassette. When I first saw it I had to check if that was there. Disappointed.

    Not the one I tried. Vents move.

    I second the praise for proclip, it really is secure and well made. I had an iBolt with my Note 3 prior to the S7 edge, now I have a Samsung wireless holder mounted on the proclip.

    Have the ProClip with ball mount and was using the iOttie Qi wireless charger but hated the cord hanging down. I changed the head to the iOttie easy one touch 3. No wireless charging though.

    Yes it holds fine. It uses a spring adjustable clip to the vent and and then there is another arm that leans on the dash. So it is not relying on the vent to hold it up, it is just an attachment point.

    I've never heard of the cd mounts before. They work well and without damaging the cd player?
    Yes. It's a narrow slot that fits into the CD slot and doesn't go anywhere near deep enough to reach the actual spinning CD, or even the bit that detects when a CD is inserted. My wife has been using one for a long time now and it works great.

    Obviously, if you hit the EJECT button on the CD drive while the phone holder is attached...

    I just looked up the ProClip and that looks pretty nice. I think I want to stay away from the suction cup mounts because if they come loose, I am afraid this phone will crack. The CD mounts are nice but in one of our cars it really interferes with some buttons and the screen of the stereo so it's not the best for that car. I suppose a vent mount would be ok but this ProClip seems like it would work very well. I see the mounts they sell for the S7E but how do you guys put the iOttie or the Samsung Wireless holder like some of you mentioned? How do you attach it? Some kind of universal mount for it would be nice so my wife could use it for her iphone as well.

    If you get the ball mount, it's pretty universal and you can attach many other cradles that snap onto a ball mount. It's sold separately from proclip, but my first cradle from proclip included it (for my original Galaxy Nexus), then I just swapped out other cradles onto the ball mount as I changed phones.

    I will have to take a pic of it in the car later, but here are the links to the parts I got:

    I have a 2015 Chrysler 300c. On the dash below the vent, I have the ProClip Angled Mount:

    Chrysler 300 2015-2017 ProClip Angled Mount - ProClip USA

    that has a pic of it mounted to a car, that goes to the Chrysler specific one, but you can find whatever model car you have, quick 2 minute install for me. I used a proclip on a different car, and when I removed it, no marks were left

    so the Proclip mounts to the car, the ball mount screws into the plate of the Proclip:

    Then the back of the iBolt holder attaches to the ball mount:

    I like how that does not block the vent. I looked for my car and it almost completely blocks a vent.

    I did not like the idea of pushing a button to lock or unlock the phone into the holder. I made my own drop in holder using thin plexiglassCar mounts-picture.jpg. I took apart a Tylt wireless charger and put the electronics behind the holder. I mounted it using a suction mount on my dash. Now I just drop the phone i and it chargers and switches to drive mode. Here's a picture.

    The ProClip ball mount is a little over priced @ $29.99 but I paid it.
