Thanks... I've got a 2014 and that location may just obscure the x-mode and heated seat buttons....
I got an email from ProClip to the effect that their solution for the 2019 Forester is ready and in stock.They don't appear to have updated for 19's yet, but ProClip had some great permanent solutions in the past.
If you get the urge this might help. My cable was 3'. 4 1/2' would do it so 6' is the ticket.Thanks. I've been leaving mine in the cupholder, and that works fine for me. I could consider moving it into the center console if I had a long enough USB cable.
Have you had any issues with the iOttie mount you're using leaving a residue or discoloration on the center area where you have it mounted? I I've read some complaints that people have had with that mount damaging the soft touch part that's leather looking. That plastic area you chose there isn't soft touch so I was thinking it might be safe to put it there.should be able to use the same solution as what I have, which is perfect IMO.
