GLC phone holder


Really struggling to find a proper Phone holder for my GLC 220D. Don't like the CD slot holders. Any suggestions please. Like the idea of putting it here on the dash if possible. Or to the right hand side of the steering wheel. Mine is Right handed model.

I tried a vent clip, but the vent keeps rotating - so that wont work

What kind of a phone do you have?
- my iphone & plus doesnt fit in that opening

I hace the Brodit kit. Ir si great quality. Only problem is it interferes somewhat with the passenger's legs.

Hi I have a iPhone 6. True it doesn't fit exactly into that slot. I tried my old holder into the vents and like you they keep moving. V annoying.

I think its too low to be used as a navigation - if mounted as in the picture.

Since my vent clip didnt work and I needed a navigation, I put the phone on top of the opened cup holder lid cover and it worked pretty well, but was too low

Thanks. Saw some of these. Just a little worried the passengers will keep knocking off it.

I have this boy! (10 in the UK - I think about $15 in US)

Amazon Amazon

I really like it. Well made and robust for the price and has the phone at a great angle - for me anyway. Obviously a very personal thing.
Only downside is that it uses a cupholder but I rarely need both and use the one nearest for drinks.

Looks like it could be the one for me �� Can I ask of it is strong enough to type and use the touch screen. Sometimes the arm can bend when using ?

It works fine for me. I think it is about as rigid as it can be - with an arm there's always a bit of flex. I don't type on it much - with RHD, it doesn't work too well if you are right-handed.
At the price, I wasn't expecting much but have been quite impressed how well designed and solid it is.

Yes it won't work well for navigation. Too low.

https://www.ebay.ie/itm/231354632384<br/> Found this on eBay. Do you think it will stick to the silver trim on the dash in the blue circle.? Have looked at videos of it on YouTube and it looks like it just might.

I've always used Brodit kits with most car. I've got to say I'm really liking Mercedes SatNav and the traffic information is just as good as Waze. My phone is just on charge in the cubby hole out of sight. Neat and tidy.

ClicOn universal phone holder.



ClicOn mount.

I have the ClicOn mount and phone holder, it does have a low mounting point but is quite solid.

Looks like they may be made in the same factory.

I purchased the ClicOn from holdmyphone.com.au

I've done some searching and it is the same

Brodit is the company; ProClip is their Brandname for the product and full marketing name in the US. And ClicOn is the brandname for the product in Australia.

Exactly same product I thought I recognised it.

This is exactly the same one I have. BRODIT.

Do you have problems with the passengers knocking it loose with their knees?

Looks good.

Can you share a photo of it in your GLC?

I have a similar vent clip, but from Anker and it moves the vent to the left and right. Maybe this one is lighter?

I'll try get a pic in later today.

As the poster above mentioned, it does move a bit on hard turns :P but for me the ease of use is a no brainer. Best holder I've had.

Thanks, I have the Brodit, It is very convenient and ov very high quality (I`ve had brodit in all my cars for over 5 years), but it gets knocked out of place all the time by the passenger's knee. Therefore I am looking for a alternative... and this really looks like it.

I am also considering this one also from IOTTIE

I was debating that one as well, but I figured that the air vent one is closer to the driver and easier to use the phone.

I think the CD one will block the buttons too much
