Leave it in my pocket..
Car Kit Dock
Where's your iPhone in your car?
Just curious about who puts their iPhone where when they are driving
I drive a tacoma and alway find myself putting my iPhone in one of the cup holders. I recently took off my slider case and found that I was padding my cup holder with something soft before I put my iPhone in.
So this prompted me to ask, "where does everyone else put theirs?"
Are you a leave it in the pocket person, center console, cup holders? Do you have a car kit that you dock your iPhone in?
If you do put it somewhere other than your pocket, do you have a case, or do you just drop it unprotected somewhere?

I use to keep mine in an Air Vent Clip Holder that I really liked. It was very nice to have when I wanted to use the Navigation (NA CoPilot) of my iPhone or easily see who was calling. It was also easy to charge while in the Vent Holder. Then I broke the silly thing! Now I need to go back and get another one from WalMart.
For now I just place my iPhone in one of my Cup Holders. I use to just put it between my legs until I kept forgetting it was there and I would stop and get out. There the phone would go flying!
That is when I bought the Otterbox Defender case which is where my iPhone stays no matter where I use it or store it

I'll only put mine on my leg if I have the clunky (yet protective) Incipio case on it and I'm expecting a call I don't want to miss. If I have to hit my brakes hard, I don't jump for it, if it falls, it falls. When it has, I left it on the floor until I can stop somewhere to retrieve it safely.
I get very few calls, but I just tap the screen and use the speakerphone, so it IS hands-free for me. Even then, I usually just ask if I can call back when I'm off the road.
I drive a school bus for a living, so I am accustomed to distraction while driving. Still, I try to keep it to an absolute minimum at all times.
It's now illegal in our state to use a hand-held cell phone while driving, yet it amazes me just how many people still do it. I pass one guy every morning at 7:30 and for five years he has been on his cell phone EVERY SINGLE MORNING but two. Who wants to be yakking on a phone at that hour?

Well I look at it this way, before cell phones you couldn't be reached in the car so if the phone rings and my earphones aren't in I just let it ring. I don't think there could be a message that important besides what if your battery was dead the person couldn't reach you what would they do then?
