Mine's an XC90, and I keep my phone inside the storage compartment undreneath the arm rest. So its out of sight. But if I'm going on a long journey, I just plug it in (got Android Auto), still inside the storage compartment - helps with Navigation, and a few notifications like messages that Android Auto reads out loud.

Me too! Don't even like hands free calls, so don't use it unless I really need to.

Mines an XC60, but my approach is identical to above. Always out of sight so no temptation for me or any external 3rd party eyes...!!!

I cut a rectangular piece of non-slip mat that goes on top of the cup holder cover and this is where I have my mobile phone, which is powered from the rear 12v socket.
Most people that I know, seldom phone, they use WhatsApp to make contact and if convenient, I pull over, read the message and respond, as required.

Over the last year, I have only made possible one hands free call and received two.
For me, a mobile phone in the car, is for emergencies these days.

Mine also goes in the centre arm rest storage, where I also have a Qi charger plugged in to keep the X topped up.

Brodit do a range of custom phone holder clips, I've used the in a variety of vehicles over the years. Find the ones for your vehicle here.
If you decide one suits your need I would search the interweb on the model number as they are often cheaper on other sites.

I've got a similar wireless charge/holder that I've used on my last 2 cars. Similar to this.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/CHOETECH-Wi...=fsclp_pl_dp_1

Totally legal to use (atm) and gives me access to Google Maps as Android/Apple carplay solution is not very good on sensus (doens't show full screen maps etc)
