In 2023, there are very few occasions which you'd be driving without your phone, but if you're using it for navigation, you probably don't want to keep it in your pocket. Sure, you could get a dashboard or windshield phone mount, but at best that can be dangerous since it obstructs your view of the road and at worst it can be illegal. A CupFone mount like this one from WeatherTech removes the issue of your phone being directly in front of your face, while still keeping it available at arm's reach.
