However, if you have been experiencing difficulties searching for one that accommodates your needs and preferences, you could always DIY your docking station. You will need to purchase a piece of plastic board from a hobby shop along with some adhesive tape and fasteners such as velcro. You may find that making your own docking station would be a much more practical solution as store-bought ones usually don’t last long and most drivers experience issues with the suction cups. You will be able to fashion your docking station to your liking and fasten it down with quality adhesive tape, therefore, you won’t have to deal with your devices landing up falling under seats while driving ever again.
Door Mounted Cup Holders

You won’t have to mess your coffee while changing gears again.

The best storage systems to have in your car are behind the drivers’ and passengers’ seats and on the doors. You will be able to find several options on the market, although, it would be worth the extra spend to opt for quality fabrics such as leather. Opting for storage pockets that boast enough extra space without going overboard will greatly change your driving quality, especially when travelling on long trips with friends or family. For your daily commute, you will be able to store your essentials in one of your door pockets. It is best to opt or door and seat pockets that simply hook and clip with adhesive fasters as you would like them to stay in place but you don’t want them to become permanent fixtures as you may need to replace them at some point.
