I've got one of those nets in my 400. It sticks reasonably well to the carpeted centre console using velcro.  

Is that a paper map? Haven't seen one of those for years...

Get creative and make a bracket for a Brodit cradle. It’s all very well saying put the phone in the boot but CarPlay and Waze can be useful while you’re on the way to Hethel for that lap record a

In the boot. A phone has no place in a Lotus sports car!  :)

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

It’s held in with the radio screws.

This is the other side for my Vi Monitor mid-manufacture. Gives you the idea.

I’ve run the cable from the phone cradle into the glovebox to pick up the usb connector. 
I can break into it there to do updates, etc on the head unit. 
Having the phone in the glovebox won’t do much for reception, if that’s important to you, and occasionally it’s helpful to see the phone, even with carPlay.

Cheapskate but effective solution - they take a bit of perseverance with alcantara (probably better with leather) to get stuck on, but these work well on the sides of the centre console too...... Long lead to the glove box one side and a shorter one to the front cigarette lighter on the other.....
