Question Mounts / Wireless charging pad

I was hoping to find a good place to put my phone on the dash so I can see it for nav, etc, but without using mounting hardware it seems like there are few options. Has anyone tried getting one of these charging pads to put in front of the USB/power compartment door? Or has anyone come up with something better?

AccessoryGeeks.com | Trident White Electra Qi Series Wireless Charging Pad w/ Anti-Skid Feet for Qi Enabled Devices (Android & Windows) or Cases - EL-QI-SCP-WT | Free Shipping!

I'm most concerned about placement of the phone over the actual charging, but this seems like it could kill two birds with one stone.

I made a ghetto mount LOL. Maybe it will work for you.

Re: Mounts / Wireless charging pad

Ok, I obviously made this too easy for you guys since these are both excellent solutions. I've seen vent-mount solutions before, and still am a bit worried that they'd cause damage/wear to the vents over extended periods of time. Also, it looks like this Kenu Airframe only supports up to 4.8" screens.

Now they just need to make a wireless charger incorporated into these designs.

Thanks!

Re: Mounts / Wireless charging pad

i've had Kenu mount in my previous FX35 for about a year, there was no visible damage or wear when i took it out and moved it to 2014 JGC. thou its now in the glove compartment since my JGC came with nav. kept it just in case. It held my Moto X like a champ in FX35 for NAV duties.

Re: Mounts / Wireless charging pad

I went that route because I need all my vents in AZ! Previous to that, I used an Akron mount on a gooseneck.
just installed Arkon 18" Flexible Gooseneck mount - JeepForum.com
