Does anyone have any creative solutions for neatly tethering a phone when using Android Auto or Apple CarPlay?
I made the switch from Apple (CarPlay) to Android (Auto), which enables use of the Waze navigation app, among other things.
My phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 8) is on a Steelie magnetic phone holder mounted on the plastic trim above the left center vent. (By the way, neither the Note 8 nor my previous iPhone will fit into the front console storage compartment.)
For those who don't know, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay do not work wirelessly, using Bluetooth, etc. Both require the phone to be tethered via charging cable (preferably an OEM cable) to the USB port.
So what I end up with is the phone's charging cable running into the front console storage compartment USB. Also, when tethering to the USB, the lid of the storage compartment can't fully close.
Not the end of the world, but certainly unsightly... I don't recall this issue being discussed on our forum before.
Am I missing the obvious on how to tether? Hoping someone has a creative solution...
Merry Christmas to all!
