Wondering if any one is using a cellphone mount (for visual navigation use on handle bars - not for storage) that they really like and trust.

I'm thinking it would be cool to not have to take a gps on my longer rides. Granted my gps is so old if it ever fell off I'd be fine. Phone? Not so much.

Phones are expensive ;) I'd go with this mount because it uses no springs or clips...your phone is basicly bolted down:

Then, use a standard 1" ball RAM camera mount:

RAM 1" Ball with 1/4-20 Stud for Cameras, Video & Camcorders Unpackaged - RAP-B-366U | RAM Mounts


Then get the size arm and mounting bracket you want (depending where you want to mount it)

Motorcycle Mounts for phones, gps, cameras and more | RAM Mounts


Yes, I've used RAM stuff before, it's worth the money :)

I use this one, Motorcycle MTB Bicycle Handlebar Mount Holder For Cell Phone with USB Port New | eBay.
Fits both my uncased work Iphone 6 and my LG K7 in an armored case. Mount and Phone vibrate a bit at Freeway speeds but no indication of anything ever coming out. Plenty of bugs smashed on the back of the phone! Wired a relay in headlight bucket to power this (and all my add on other gadgets) from the Aux Power connection when the running lights are lit as this provides a fused outlet that will not shut down the rest of the bike when it blows.

I've used this: TECHMOUNT - Products

With a ball mount attached to my handlebars: TECHMOUNT - Products.

Never had an issue. One thing that can be an annoyance - the strap that goes across the phone can get in the way. The little strap is an option I suppose but I always use it.


I like the RAM stuff as well but haven't used any yet.

I spent money on a expensive holder at a rally that was "tough and sturdy" and in 10 minutes it ejected my phone from the bike.....
Ask Vulcan2000 how pissed I was....lol

you can spend your money on more expensive stuff, but for me the Schwinn Universal Smart Phone Mount is the best one I have used so far.
