I used to have a cheap phone vent holder on my previous Audi, which has a typical standard air vent.

 

I can't seem to find one for the s-max. I do see on the addison lee galaxy's they have something plugged into the vent, which holds their radio.

 

Does anyone know of anything? Really looking for something cheap.

Srarch for Brodit.
Not the cheapest but definitely the best.

Thanks, but to be honest, for those prices, i'd rather pay for a cheap suction mount and whack it on the glass on the corner so it doesn't really get in the way, i don't really like them though

Seriously - you've got £6000+'s worth of S-max but won't pay £30 for a decent Brodit mount?

Just get the brodit holder tailored for the car then the appropriate sized universal mount which will then hold any phone

Higsy is spot on. That's what undid with mine - bought the Brodit bracket then added a £5 universal holder from my local market.

I'm a bit tight on funds at the moment that's why. What kind of bracket is it that you put a non brodit holder on the bracket? Any pics?

What kind of cheap holder can I buy for it, I can't even see any screw holes, how do the original holders / cheap holders even fit onto these? I've seen some videos of mounts which have screws but i'm confused with this one.

Here's a photo of what I have in mine.... you just need to use some self tapping screws onto the brodit plate:

It's not difficult...

 

Search ebay for universal phone holder or go to your market & find one. All you need is any phone holder that attaches by screws - you put the screws into the Brodit mount - job done.

 

The airvent ones usually have slide in clips - take these out, slide over screwheads - equally job done.

Don't mean to sound dumb, but all the universal holders are either suction cup ones or vent holders, I can't see how I would put screws through the back of them onto the brodit mount...

Search for Tetrax.
Stick the magnetic mount to the Brodit vent bracket.

You buy one with the air vent mount - the air vent mounts have little stubs which slot into recesses on the back of the mount.

Find 2 screws with the same size head as the stubs from the vent mount - screw these onto the brodit plate - then slide the mount over them.

 

It's very easy to see how it works once you receive the mount.
