Has anyone found a company that makes a custom mount for the iPhone or other smart phones. Sorry if it has been posted somewhere else but I could not find anything using the forum search.

One of my jobs is delivering, so I'm always using my phone as a GPS and for music when I'm driving. I've tried a couple of mounts before but I usually just set the phone in one of my cupholders, works well for me. If you do get a mount, make sure it's good quality. I've had a couple of mounts that simply "stick" to your windshield and they ALWAYS fall down.

I don't see anything for C7 on Kudas site. Anyone have some good alternatives?

Bump since I just found out that ProClip offers a dashboard mount for the C7. Have a look at the video here:


Looks pretty good to me, gonna place my order now.

I use the Kenu

It fits over the power port door using the "wide" slot and stows in the console cubby when not in use . Can also,fit the AC vents using the "thin" slot ..very clean and simple.

Thanks for that Great Idea and the pic to go with it, that is an excellent location and needed, as the C7 design and vent positioning does Not allow for a functional vent mount location in my opinion. Is that a Galaxy S4 in your Kenu mount? I'll need the larger Kenu Airframe+ Car Mount for my Galaxy S5. ($29.95 at AMZ)

Just an IPhone 4s , you can also turn the Kenu for a landscape view too. I agree with the vent location critique . Tried it there now on the power port door it's perfect at least for me the clip is high quality and you can put a credit card in the slim slot and use it as a " kick stand" also.... Well worth the money IMO.

The Gold Standard?

PERFECT !!!! I purchased one from Amazon, delivered the next day; installed as you suggested and it holds my Droid Moto X exactly where I need it to be. Thanks so much for the suggestion. In my opinion, this will eventually be the GOLD STANDARD in cell phone holders for the StingRay.
I agree about the "Gold Standard", it can not be beat for location. It interferes with nothing and it faces the exact angle to the driver, if mounted on the left-hand corner of the power outlet door cover. Here's some pics I just took with my Galaxy S5 installed in the New Kenu Airframe+ Car Mount for Phablets and without the phone attached. http://www.amazon.com/Kenu-Airframe...qid=1413599714&sr=8-1&keywords=Kenu+Airframe+

Does the Kenu still allow you to use the accessory outlet if you mount it on the outlet cover?

I installed a ProClip mount in my car. The main reason for my purchase is so that I can comfortably see the screen while using the DirectWire app with my Passport Max. Works perfectly and is not in the way of anything. I also ordered a retractable phone charger for the car from eBay so that there isn't excessive cable laying around.

It depends on how you position your mount. If positioned the way CUSA does, yes, it is accessible. If positioned the way V1 VR and I have ours, then only when the phone is NOT in the mount; otherwise, if concerned about battery usage of the phone, you could use the USB charger located in the storage area to charge your phone as you view it while mounted in the Kenu

Have a question on 1LT interior.... I just picked up my 1LT from dealer last week and I was under the impression the 1LT model did not have leather surfaces on the dash and side doors. I was suprised when salesman said they all come with leather wrapped dash. Is the whole dashboard wrapped in leather or just the parts of it?

You would be surprised how far non-leather surfaces have come to have the look and texture of something close to leather even when they are not.

I spent some time going back and forth between a 2LT and 3LT parked side-by-side. Afterwards, I could both see (within 18 inches or so) and feel the difference.

However, if you don't have two StingRays sitting side-by-side with two different trim levels, a little test is to very gently press on a corner of the folded material with your thumb nail. Non leather will offer more resistance to deformation.

There is no doubt but what the interior of all C7 are nice. Corvette has won many awards for it. However, read the details of order guides, and other official documents from Chevy to get the bottom line. The 3LT comes with leather on the dash and doors.
