Thought I’d share the vent mount that I found that works with the thick vents in the SC. This is meant for phones with MagSafe but can work with all phones with the included attachments. NOTE I cut off the small hooks at the end with nail clippers for flush hold on the vent.

What cover do you have for the Start/Stop ignition button?

Have you given up on android auto/carplay functionality? Seems there would be no easy clean way to mount a cable way up there, and the headunit doesn't have wireless capability.

One warning on the Magnetic mounts......Do NOT use a stick on metal plate on your phone or case in conjunction with a wireless QR charger. My S8 and wireless cradle at home dramatically overheats and freaks out. I've removed all those Magnetic holders, as convenient as they are..

You can use them but you'd have to goolge your particular phone and figure out where the wireless interface is. Usually its in the center of the phone, so you would just put the metal plate on the very top and bottom of the phone and find a magnetic mount that works accordingly. Caused no problems that way, and the mount was just self made, I used that thick double-stick tape and two rare earth magnets spaced properly apart with a rubber adhesive non-slip stuck on the surface of the magnets, holds it super secure in the vehicle.

OPs mount appears to use a metal ring instead, so the wireless charging happens through the middle of it, which is also clever.

I use the cord for CarPlay only half the time but it does take way the clean look.

Brain - Will you measure how far out the from the edge of the mounting vent the magnetic surface is for me? I have a MageSafe iPh12 and love my home MagSafe charger mount. I have a SEL without the flat screen gauge cluster, but it has a vent type edge in that location that something might be able to mount to, yet the area there seems narrower between the hood and the center console edge. I want to know if it will sit out away from the vent enough to let my iPh12 clear everything. Thx

Perfect! Thank you. I'll see if my mounted phone at that distance will clear the gauge cluster hood and console edge tomorrow. (y)

Might be referring to calling me Brain at the start of your post.
Oh, a "typo!" 😊 I'm the proud KING of typo's. 🤴 Funny how when you make a typo the writer can't proof it, yet others see it plain as day. The writer reads his thoughts, not the words...

That small area between the gauge cluster hood and center console edge on the SE & SEL Non-Activity is too narrow for placing my phone there. Plus the horizonal rib appears to be narrow on the front edge and gets wider going back. That's not good for a clamp staying in place. It was worth a try.

I'm leaning towards horizonal/landscape MagSafe mount right in front of the driver on top of the hood now.

I have used ProClips in all my personal, company (45) and family vehicles (as gifts) for years. I am patiently waiting for ProClip to come out with custom mount for the SC. ProClip is a 2-part phone mount system. 1 for the vehicle (make, model year) and the other for the phone type - see: ProClip USA | Car Phone Holders and Dashboard Phone Mounts

Until Proclip comes out with a custom SC mount, I am using one of their universal pedestal mounts:
