    My old iPhone 5 fit nicely in my arm rest in my car,but the new iPhone 6 is too big to fit in there,so I found a solution for myself that might work for others.I purchased this genuine leather pouch off Ebay....

    Mounted it on the center hump of my car with double sided foam tape and it worked out perfectly.I posted a video of it up on YouTube...

    Here is a pic of it on my car....

    Thanks for sharing. Probably if you want to charge your phone at the same time, put it up side down to do so

    Thanks,the phone option I used was the Samsung Galaxy S5,my iPhone 6 has the apple leather case on it during the video.I am sure it would work well naked,or with a little bulkier case.

    Sounds like it will fit the 6+ with a case. I will be receiving mine tomorrow, so I will check to make sure and post as soon as I receive the Kenu airframe plus.

    I use Kenu with my Apple Leather case with no problem, I am quite sure it could fit a bigger phone, she can take it ;)

    Just received the Kenu+ and tried it with my iPhone 6+ Case (phone arriving tomorrow) and it works great. Here are some photos.

    Kenu + just doesn't work for me. I'll sell at a discount if someone wants it

    Very nice, thanks! It looks huge on the vent, I'm excited for the maps to be bigger.

    Do you think there's a little extra room for a bigger case than what you have?

    Yes, it has an additional 1/4" of spread beyond the Seidio Surface (Platinum) case I used in the photo and about 1/4" additional thickness available.

    So not otterbox room, but most others?

    Also, does this mount angle? Sometimes I want to move the one I have to the passenger side center vent so I can feel the AC better but then I wouldn't be able to see it directly. Thanks!

    Why didn't you like it?

    I'm kinda on the fence about getting one. Just concerned about it blocking the vent and potentially falling out.

    It pivots around (turns) but doesn't angle. You may be able to angle it slightly by not pushing it all the way in on the vent, but it may not be as stable on the vent.

    I heard this can cause condensation in the camera lense? Is that true?
