Thank you for posting the pictures. It is a very clean and seemingly well engineered design. Out of curiosity, why did you choose not to include inductive charging?.
Aesthetics, mostly; the inductive chargers are a little larger and bulkier and I like the sleek look of the minimalist phone holder. Not much more of a reason than that really. I can always change my mind too; the inductive holders will connect to the same clip mount.

Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. Please post the part number

Today, I installed the ProClip mount with the Qi charger. I tried it on both the passenger and driver sides, and ultimately decided on the driver's side. It was a super easy install. The power is from the 12v outlet in the armrest. The outlet shuts down 30 minutes after the car powers down so no risk of draining the 12v battery.

Thank you for posting the pictures. Why did you decide on the left side vs right? Does it block the view of the lower PCM display from the driver's perspective when mounted on the left?

I decided on the driver's side because it was better for my line of sight. I very rarely use my phone in the horizontal position so the potential problem of the phone blocking the PCM display wasn't an issue for me. If you use the phone in the horizontal position, I can see how mounting it on the passenger side might be better (similar to how @LonePalmBJ mounted his phone). The ProClip base plate can be placed higher or lower on the trim piece that frames the PCM display. I did not use any adhesive, so it can be removed if I change my mind. The base is very secure, and the phone cradle can tilt/swivel.

I would only be using the phone in a vertical orientation, too. If it's not too much of an imposition, I'd appreciate it if you would please take a picture of the phone from the drivers line of sight.

Here is the view from eye level - line of sight. As mentioned before, the base is very easy to switch to the passenger side if you prefer. Today I was running Waze and the JBV1 app for my V1 Gen2 radar detector on the phone. It was pretty easy to read. Most of the buttons on the PCM lower display are still visible.
