I like that. No problems with it staying in place and not falling?

Hmmm, not sure I'd want something sticking out toward me, incase of collision. Could I break my jaw on it? Would it puncture the air bag? Anyone have safety info?

You have a better chance of hitting your head on the steering wheel that's a foot in front of you rather than something across the entire dash from you lol. If you're wearing a seatbelt neither should be a serious safety concern especially if you take in account the airbags deploying.

I like it if for nothing else it's better than a hole...
Does the standard radio show/read text?

I like it, but with Android Auto and Apple Carplay standard - Why do you need to see your phone?
Not speaking for OP but for myself, when I navigate, I've come to prefer just glancing at the next step for navigation. I really don't like the audio prompts so they're muted. I want the screen much closer to my field of view so I don't have to look far off the road to see directions. The info screen isn't bad, but it's still too far to where I have to move my head to look. I have a Ram mount for my phone and a suction cup on the windscreen, to place it where I just have to glance over with my eyes to see it and I can re-focus on the road much faster.

Looks good. I prefer the magnetized version to hold my phone but good to know a suction cup mounted phone holder will mount to that worthless little hole in the dash!!!!

Love the great idea! Would be great if someone would 3D print a flush mount for that useless cubby, so people could attach their magnetic, wireless charger pad to the empty spot. You could just attach your phone and let the pad charge your phone.

LOVE this idea. A solid piece that fills that spot, color matched, with magnet built in. Even one with a Qi charger that can be hardwired in behind the dash to charge. Come on, someone more talented than me, invent this.

I think I read that Android Auto and Apple Carplay are only available when the phone is physically plugged into the system (by USB, not Bluetooth). Is that right?

If so, I might want to just stick my phone in a holder where I can see it. If I'm running errands and am going to be getting in and out of the truck, I don't want to have to plug and unplug the phone all the time.
