I'm kind of OCD about my iPhone mount. I want the top of the phone just about flush with the top of the dash, within easy reach, with easy connections to power and audio. Here's the first iteration in my '06 R50:

I used a plastic compound called Instamorph, which is moldable at 140°F and sets up rigid when it cools, to tweak a suction cup mount. To give the suction cup something to stick to, I mounted the metal bottom of a Pringles can on the dash with Plasti-Tak (adhesive putty) so it's removable without messing up the dash panel.

Here it is without the phone in it:

Here is the start of my Android interface. Hope this allowed even though it isn't an iPod.
Still needs some skim coats of mud, fine sanding and a final finish coat of dye to match the rest of the dash.
