      Can the phone mount be swapped for a magnetic plate attached ro the ball? Magnet mounts are much easier to use than having to fiddle with getting the phone secured between the handles as shown.

      • At this time we are unaware of any magnetic plates available for the Daystar Dash Panel, however if you know of one that uses the same diameter ball mount, this could be theoretically possible to use.

      Does this fit the 2017 Sport Unlimited Jeep? Ordered one, the saleman said would fit, but replacement tray was about 1" smaller all the way around? Did they change tray size in 17? Does anybody know what will work?

      • The Daystar Dash Panel is designed for all 11-17 Wranglers. If you are having fitment issues, please contact our Customer Service department so that we may work with you to resolve this.

      What size is the mounting ball? (17mm?) I would prefer a mount that holds my phone side-to-side rather than top-to-bottom, and am contemplating getting this: https://www.extremeterrain.com/rr-phone-mount-dash-1355113.html to replace the phone holder. Will it work?

      • The Daystar Dash Panel will utilize a 17mm ball mount, however it is not necessary to change the mount to allow mounting the phone in landscape mode as opposed to portrait due to the design of the included mount, and due to the modular finger design of the Daystar Dash Panel, you can also charge your phone while it is installed. There is an excellent image of a phone mounted in portrait mode in the customer images as an example.

      I read somewhere that it will hold an iPhone 7s but I cannot figure out how to adjust the arms to fit an iPhone 7s. Are there any instructions on how to configure the arms to work for the iPhone 7s?

      • The Daystar Dash Panel w/ GPS Mount and Cradle holds all smartphones up to 7.5” tall, including Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, iPhone 6S Plus and 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, 6, 5, 5S, and SE, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, S7, S6 edge+, S6, S5, and S4, Galaxy Note Edge, Note 7, Note 5 and Note 4, Google Nexus 6 and Nexus 5, LG G5, G4, and G3, HTC One M9, One M8, and One Max, Nokia Lumia 1020 and 1520, and Motorola Moto G and Moto X. It also holds midsize (7” or 8” screen size) tablets, including iPad mini, Galaxy Note 8.0, Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 and 8.0, Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, Kindle Fire HD, and Google Nexus 7. This patented holder expands to accommodate all smartphones and midsize tablets (even those with skins and rugged cases) up to 7.5” tall (with all 4 long legs attached). The holder’s spring-loaded mechanism makes it easy to insert or remove the smartphone with one hand, yet holds the smartphone or tablet securely. The top and bottom adjustable-leg design of the Slim-Grip Ultra Holder helps keep any side buttons and ports unobstructed, making it ideal for using the side-accessible buttons on the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge or Note Edge. Eight support legs (4 short and 4 longer versions) are included that can be customized for optimum fit of your smartphone. For most devices, the best mount holder configuration is to attach 2 short support legs on top and the 2 long support legs on the bottom of the holder. For larger devices, use all 4 long support legs on the holder. For smaller devices, use all 4 short support legs on the holder.

      I purchased mine a couple years ago and all of the long plastic arms that slide in have broken. I have a Samsung Galaxy S6, which fits perfectly, but the plastic wears down and eventually breaks (which is why they give you a few in the pack). Can I purchase replacement arms? I can't see me spending another $30 for another complete mount. Thank you!

      • Hello, unfortunately we do not sell replacement arms for this kit.

          nice looking phone mount

          looks nice and fits right however getting my iphone in and out of it is not as easy as I would like. also if I want to turn it horizontally it comes off the clips and its a bit of a struggle to get back on obviously cannot re-clip while driving so a bit frustrating. it works best if you don't need to take your phone out or turn it sideways.

          5 stars for the price

          Easy to install. It’s not perfect but for the price it’s 5 stars. Only downside is I can’t have my iPhone 7 nor my wife’s plus vertical while charging. Have to flip it horizontal but I got used to it.

          No Complaints

          Assuming that it holds up, this is a great product. Fits right, screws right in and holds my Android phone without a problem. It will hold it sideways for a better view of the navigation map. If you're wondering why your sockets aren't fitting the screw to remove it, go get your jeep key. *facepalm* Ha.

          It works

          I think this is a decent product. I wish the phone sat a little higher up. The bottom of the phone sits beneath the lip so you can’t see it.

          Good Quality, Poor Fitment

          The quality of this dash panel mount is really good, but unfortunately there’s a major design flaw if you want to position your phone vertically. The bottom portion of the cradle hits against the rubber storage panel. I’m using an iPhone 8 and can’t position the phone vertically, especially with a charging cable. If you’re comfortable using the phone horizontally, then this is an excellent high-quality mount. The install is very easy and everything snaps into place. Daystar also provides different cradle arms that can be swapped out according to your phone size.
