Why? When you have Android Auto & Apple Carplay?

Just curious as I've never found the need to view my phone when it's connected to the car.

I own a 2022 Ultimate Hybrid with Tech Pack - in Red (best colour).
Also have two motorcycles. Honda CB1300 and Honda CBF1000 (also red, of course).

It is there for neatness and security in the main. Neatness as I can get rid of a 'cable mess' in the 'phone tray' which makes it easier for my wife to use the QI charger for her phone. And security as it gives a proper firm mount for the phone to sit in. And in the rare situation where I need it I can view information on the phone.
99% of the time the phone is indeed turned off. It just makes it so much easier so slide the phone in / out of the mount without having the annoyance of plugging the cable in and carefully placing the phone in the tray. If it saves me 10-15 seconds each time I get into / leave the car it's worth it :)

Ah, I see. I must admit that my phone just sits in my pocket. I have a USB stick in the slot to play music/plays and rely on the inbuilt sat nav to guide me. But I like your idea.

Plus as I find the inbuilt Nav to be 'pants' I tend to use CarPlay and TomTom for navigation, plus Apple Music for my media so it all works nicely or me :)
