Default Phone holder in center storage slot

I'm curious if anyone has rigged up a way to get a smartphone nicely situated in that center storage spot right above the touchscreen. It's the perfect size to drop a smartphone sideways for good visibility and quick access to Waze (or your favorite nav/music/whatever app), but the way it's shaped causes the phone to slide down and face almost directly up. I was thinking about rigging something up with little L-shaped holders on the back wall so I could slide my phone in.

Has anyone done such a mod or seen something that would work well for this?

In case you don't know the slot I'm talking about it's the one at the top of this photo: http://wardsauto.com/site-files/ward...%20console.JPG

Thanks for the info, I'll look for it. I have an S4 which is really close in size to the S3.

V6guy - Do you happen to have a link to the one you saw on eBay? I haven't been able to locate it yet.

For what it is worth I just lie my galaxy note 2 on its side with the cover ( samsung cover that is facing me) and the samsung name to my side and galaxy note 11 to the passenger side, and I have had no problems with it sliding off the dash, and i have a very heavy right foot .

lift the rubber piece out of that eye glass holder on top of the dash
you should be able to rig something up to suit your needs

go to a Best Buy's Automotive section & look around
there are several cell phone holders there
