What don't you believe, from my post. Specifically?
I was cordial in my 1st reply. Your ASSuming - knowitall attitude precipitated my 2nd reply since you are injecting something into the thread starters post so that you can spew your obvious distaste for people who use their phones while they drive.
IF you would like to rant about that, by all means, start a thread about it. Then your pet peeves will be on topic.
Injecting said pet peeves into this thread is Not on topic of Where drivers put their phones.
So, there's my reason; people going off topic to promote their soap box diatribes
Oh no, I didn't know the internet police were going to pull me over this quickly!
I don't believe that you or the OP are asking about the alleged "lack" of cell phone storage because you don't want to be able to use it while driving. There are MANY options to store a phone in the Compass, as discussed in this thread by all of us on-topic posters
: your pocket, the glove box, the passenger side net, the door panel, or the center console. The reason these are not adequate is of course because people want to easily access the phone while driving. You keep omitting that the OP wanted to mount it on a vent. Me reading this and realizing what it means is not "injecting" anything. Is there some reason you don't ever quote this part of the OP? People mount their phones on the vent so they CAN'T use it while driving. Am I understanding you correctly in this regard?
As for the rest of your insulting pile of a post...The OP asked about storage, I said where I store my phone. That is not off-topic. My mentioning the real danger about using cellphones while driving is not a "pet peeve", nor a rant, nor is it off-topic. It is precisely on-topic because the suggestion I give is to use any of the cellphone storage that doesn't allow you access to the phone, and use the Jeep's hands-free features. This is just better for everyone on the road. This response appears to have rubbed you the wrong way, as you instantly got quite defensive, and decided to just personally attack me. It's OK I have a thick skin and have dealt with internet keyboard warriors for a long time.
Save your soapbox "i'm just here to keep the thread on topic" diatribe. The only one I see posting off topic is you. You have not posted where you are putting your phone at all. You have only posted attempts to convince the world that you're not going to use your phone while driving, the OP doesn't want to use his phone while driving, and flinging insults in response to my suggestion. Again, I don't believe you or your feigned altruism. We get it, you and the OP are "not going to use the phone while driving", but yet are not able to store it in any of the above locations. If you are just here to keep the thread on-topic, then please, mention where you put your phone.
