I posted a thread on mounting uconnect to my "bare bones" stock Mopar radio
, here is the rest of the "hands-free" portion of that thread.
Here is the pic of my center console:
I went to Walmart and spen $12 on a cellphone holder from Scosche. The kit came with a couple mounts, and since I opted for man-powered windows I had a nice empty spot between my a/c vents. My initial problem was that the phone holder would hit the vents when I wanted to expand the arms (for alack of a better way of describing it). SOLUTION: I went to Lowes and asked for a spare piece of cut wood they were not going to use (free).
The guys at Lowes cut the wood piece to my specifications (held the plastic piece to the wood) and I painted it black. Next I Gorilla glued the outer edges of the Scosche mount to the wood, drilled four holes into the wood, and then mounted it to my center console (as pictured above).

The mount and the holder:
The end result when you snap the two together:
WHAT I DISLIKE:
1. It is not 100% hands free, but I expected that.
2. The screen is not angled towards me; I'll tweek that later, maybe add an angled piece to the wood so it faces me, expect an update later.
3. The daggone wires. I'm looking to get something from the factory that will allow me to plug in my iPhone, play music and charge it at the same time. I do not need buttons on my radio or special gadgets to switch through songs, that's why the phone is mounted that way. I'll but a hole in the center console and route the iPhone wire right up to the phone so that the wire is not dangling "in the way" (or just looking messy).
WHAT I LIKE:
1. I have a free cup holder.
2. I have a place to conveniently put my phone and change songs.
3. My iPhone is a "cheap" GPS.
4. The overall install was under $20.
THE LED LIGHT:
Something like $25 for this thing, it's pretty sweet and serves its purpose. It stays red in the cigarette lighter and is white when pulled out and illuminated.
