Soon after mounting my iPhone near the steering wheel, I noticed every iPhone cable I owned wasn't the right length. A standard 1m/3.3' cable would spool around the cupholders and get tangled up in the shifter. 1.5' cables didn't make the distance so it took a surprising amount of digging to find a two foot long lightning cable by Griffin at Amazon.
As you can see in the photo above, it's absolutely the perfect length of cable, just enough to reach the phone without getting in the way of any controls or storage. The reinforced bottom plug does just barely touch the wiper stalk, but doesn't affect the use of the wipers at all.
