iPhone/GPS Mounts?

So i have been searching around looking for a good "universal mount" for an iPhone/gps unit. I have seen a nice unit over at 1000rr, but i ride an RC51 sp1 and im interested in any other RC riders iPhone/GPS set up. Currently, as sad as it sounds im using this iPhone car mount, just the holster portion with a slew of neon red zip ties....i have heard of RAM mounts, etc....im just curious to see them on an RC51....

I've got a RAM mount that attaches to my cowl support bar. I'll try to remember to post a pic up tonight. Holds my Garmin perfect.

Here are some crappy cell phone pics. I bought a RAM mount that fits my Garmin specifically. It attaches via the ballmount to the mount located on my cowl support bar. Once tightened down it does not vibrate at all and does not move. The whole setup wasn't that expensive, less than $40 iirc.

I use the velcro to attach the thermostat for my heated gear in the winter.

I Agree. Tell me why again one needs a GPS or a phone mount?

My riding jackets have a pocket that works just fine for me.

Seems dangerous to me but to each their own.

No different than a GPS in your car, unless that's too dangerous too.
