Feel free to modify the design to fit your particular phone or car.
So, I bought a Galaxy Note recently. I’m not sure if you’re familiar with the Note, but in short, it is a Really Big Phone. Soon after, I bought it a sweet sweet wallet case, and it became Even Bigger. (Bigger, yet awesome, and now capable of holding my credit cards!)
This caused a bit of a problem in situations where I was used to having a more “standard-size” phone. Particularly, this became an issue while driving, as the phone no longer fit into the convenient cubbie in my car. I considered buying a car mount, but they were all slightly less than ideal in a number of ways, and to top it all off, would require me to take my phone in and out of its awesome wallet case multiple times per day. Oh, what’s a hacker to do?
Why, BUILD HER OWN CUSTOM CAR MOUNT, of course!
This device is intended to snugly fit a Galaxy Note phone in a Spigen wallet case. The back of the mount is custom-designed to fit in an empty compartment in my Hyundai Accent, and can be changed to fit whatever location you'd like. This design also features a hinge to enable the user to point the phone at either the driver or passenger, for radio or map usage.
This particular design is easiest to build with a laser cutter, but a jigsaw or other cutting apparatus would likely work just fine.
I recommend reading through the instructions before making any cuts to your material. Many parts of the design are variable and depend on your specific materials and setup.
