I like to use my smartphone as a navigation and speed camera warning device. In my 964 and Subaru I use a grip called the Kenu Airframe that sits on top of my air vents.






This however does not work/fit in the 931

I don't like suction cups on the windscreen, so I was wondering if you guys want to share your wisdom on how to mount a smartphone in a useable way without screws or glue in a 924.

No screws or glue, hmmm. Duct tape. Or you could throw the smart phone out the window and focus on heel-toe, rev matching and giving your undivided attention to the road.

Now Joe, I wasn't really looking for driving advice, was I?.

I drive my cars pretty hard especially when we go on our alpine roadtrips, but there is a slight challenge...speed checks with life altering fines.

I don't know what it is like where you live, but here on my bit of the planet there are some very heavy penalties for speeding and I prefer to avoid them as much as possible. Luckily there are very good apps available that can warn me when I am approacing mobile and fixed camera's, it can even warm me when there are police controls in the area. This allows me to focus on the road and instead constantly checking the sidewalk and overhead beams for camera's and camouflaged police officers with laser guns.

Due to the cornering G's I prefer to have my phone fixed in place. the Added advantage of a fixed phone is that I can also pay it forward when I see a dangerous situation on the road.

My car is not a beater and looks factory fresh. So I am looking for a solution to fit my phone in a fixed position that is elegant and doesn't do damage to my car.

Take a peek at this one, Johann:

https://gslink.us/SYFU1o7C

Over the past bunch of years, I've used several different phone mounts and this is the only one I've come back to and actually liked using repeatedly.

Admittedly, I've yet to use it in my 931, but hopefully that'll be changing very soon (waiting on a new WUR any day now).

Anyway, it uses a slightly tacky suction cup with a tension-assisted clamp to attach to the dash. No residue, no glues, just have to make sure the surface is dry and dirt/dust-free. Over the past 3 or so years, I've only had this thing fall off the dash maybe a total of 5 times, and only on the very hottest of days.

All-in-all, though, it's lasted me a long while and gets switched between different cars fairly regularly, and it's rarely given me any trouble whatsoever.

Hope this helps!
