    Recommend me a cell phone holder

    I commuted two hours this morning and the Aukey 12v adapter charged my phone right up to 100% while running Waze and also the double dash cams.

    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    I'll have to try that for the rear cam. Not that I want to undo what I did yesterday since my fingers are still sore...

    My fuse adapter is 1.5A same as your OBD one, so barely enough to keep the phone alive while navigating. I'm now using my Aukey dash cam's power supply which has an extra USB jack, so I'll see how it powers my phone later this week when I go on a road trip.

    The End of my 2017 MKZ

    OK got it now, I needed to come down the outside of the A-pillar not the inside. The rear cam cable is fat and was a bitch to shove under the trim. I haven't bothered to get it under the back door sill and rear quarter trim but nobody is ever back there anyway.

    This is the part I'm trying to hide, doesn't seem to be room to stuff the wire in.

    I bought a fuse adapter power supply for a dashcam and it will just keep the phone at a steady charge level while using Waze. On the other hand a standard Verizon 12v charger will charge the phone right up while navigating.

    Hey @Zalvern do the A-pillar covers just pop off? I want to route the camera cables underneath. 🙂

    Thanks for the tip - just installed one. Crazy people you are being watched...

    Rim Corrosion

    Rather than "reading" the road ahead the sensors read the downward acceleration of the wheel into the pothole, and slow that acceleration so the wheel glides over to some extent. At the same time it preps the rear wheel to do the same when it arrives over the hole. Good stuff.

    I got the vent-mount magnetic one and put it on the left side, works great. For the wife's we got a vent mount spring-loaded one from Staples and also works well.

    My first Lincoln

    I also drove the LaCrosse before driving the MKZ and agree with your assessment. Not to mention that the salesman couldn't figure out how to get it out of park with that funky shifter.

    Best way to fix small chips

    My 2017 is chipped to hell on the front end from northeast Interstate travel and I've been using Dr Colorchip on it. It doesn't really fill in the chip, it kind of colors the bottom of it but it's better than nothing.
