    Thinking about buying a Brodit holder for the iPhone 5s, but the mounts available for my car are in positions nowhere near the cig charger, so don't want to mount it using one of Brodit's mounts.

    I was thinking about using sticky back velcro, just wondered if anyone else has had any success doing this?

    The bit I want to mount it on isn't flat, it's bumpy, so not sure how well it will stick.

    Cheers

    What kind of car have you got? What about fitting a socket discreetly away?

    The properly installed brodit holder broke the ventcovers of my Volvo, I would NOT advise to use this product in the way it's advertised.

    I ended up with a suction cup mount sticked to the side of the midconsole (on the passenger side)

    I always use Panavise brackets but I'm not sure they make them for Dacia.

    Poorly. If you're unhappy with the mounts available (can you not use longer cords?) you may need to custom fab one.

    It's really not too difficult but it helps if you can solder. However, if you can I'd suggest hardwiring instead of relying on a power outlet in the first place.
