    I'm looking :unsure: for something to fit in the cup holder that will hold the head unit from my FT-891. I've been looking at the ones for cell phones and tablets but I'm not sure which would work best and don't want to do the buy-try-return-buy again-try-again method when someone may have already done the work for me. If you have something else you've used besides a cup holder device, I'm open to suggestions. TIA!(y)

    Check this product made by Lido. It uses the floor bolt from either the seats or seat belt.

    I personally prefer using the manufacturers mounting bracket and secure it to a clear space on the vertical dash section with 3M heavy duty outdoor mounting tape.
