Phone Mounts

I'd like to get a handle bar phone mount for my Vulcan 900 for nav/android auto. Do any of you have one that you love or any to avoid? Thanks!

Got this for my 9. I had to order two parts off Amazon. It screws in to hold the phone. A little pricy but I figure it's better than replacing a $600 phone. I'll try to look up the item numbers if anyone's interested.Click image for larger version

I have an X-Grip Ram mount for my S7. The buttons on the S7 are not in the best place for a lot of phone mounts. I can just get the phone in this one without one arm being on the on/off button and I would never use it without the rubber band tether. Still, it works, and I can still plug in the charger if needed.




Installed:
RAM mount for TomTom Rider 400 (with anti theft module)
6000k LED Headlight & Spots; Kisan Headlight Modulator (works with LEDs),
__Brake Light Modulator, LED License Plate Holder
Longer Kickstand
Dobeck EJK 3.0
Lucky Mirror Extenders
Misc. RAM Mounts for Cup Holder, SPOT, Phone, etc.
Chuckster BAK, Trailer Hitch and Cooler Rack
Wiring for Trailer
Ray's Throttle Mod
Things to do:
Drilling Baffle Plates (Maybe)
Paint HF Tag Along Trailer to Match Bike

LET'S RIDE

I have a different setup which I really enjoy. I have a Quad Lock mount and a USB and Voltage reader that is connected to the bikes accessory connector.

What I like about the Quad lock mount , it uses the phone case as the actual cradle so it is super compact.

Quad Lock Link

The USB and voltage reader is really good. It is connected to the accessory connects and also has a switch on it to turn it on and off . That way you arn't annoyed with the voltage constantly changing while you are riding and not needing to charge anything.

Any idea how much thicker the quadlock portion of that phone case is compared to the rest of the case? I carry my phone in a holster and wonder if I'll have enough room to accommodate the quadlock case.

I use the Ram mount with the X-GRIP on the handlebar. These make it easy to swap the X-GRIP from bike to bike. You only have to get the extra U-bolt to mount to the other bike(s).
