Comes in handy when you need to compare GPS speed with what the bike reads at a given MPH to correct for sprocket and tire changes.

-1/+3 I was off by 17.8%. Bike said 73, GPS said 60. So phone with GPS app on it right there on the fork stem. easy peasy. Comes in handy when u get lost too. Throw an ear bud in with google maps and its awesome.

I might have to get one if I upgrade to a bluetooth helmet but at this point I just throw an earbud and I'm ready to rock out to my music and I can still get directions too.

I got the 3 in one, with that holder, a ram mount for the steering stem, and the extension you'll need too.

I'm putting a Sena Bluetooth into my helmet.

After reading reviews of this, this holder works great with the Ram mount; and the Sena works way better than the units at 1/2 the price.

No music for me though, only to Siri dial and answer my phone, and for texting via Siri and GPS commands too.

I want that Sena 10S. I do want it for music thou. I don't think I would make many calls. Get tired of earbuds in my head, and lack of volume adjusting once I get going.

cell phone mount

Head to cycle gear and pick up last years BILT Bluetooth helmet. They're on closeout. Return the next day. Claim the left side speaker doesn't work. You get the SENA 10 system built in for ~$120.

Cycle gear employee told me. I was skeptical so I bought a helmet that fit. Holy crap I was stoked!

Dead serious. I've held full on conversations and they had no idea I was riding.

Also +1 on the RAM mount. It holds my phone securely. Adjustable on viewing angle. Easy on easy off.

I wish Lifeproof made a case that added a little nub for safety wiring. Cause you know. Chit happens.

This would be the only other way I would go, but it's salty. But it's a case, and the mount. Tony Carbahal (spelling) does his stunt shows WITH HIS PHONE ON HIS BIKE with this mount, so you know it's not going anywhere. Looks good, phone is sturdy, but again the price.

I cant use my stem... but my new one came today and it seems amazing. Springs are tight enough to hold my galaxy s7 edge and doesn't seem like it would fall out! Even has usb charge port for the long rides.

I too have mine working on my bike now- had to rig my own mount for the stem.
It's working OK- my rabbed part, the X mount works great! Phone don't budge from it.
NOw I can use my speedometer app while I'm riding too! I have a seperate thread on that.

My Sena 5 is working great too. one touch to get SIRI to dial for me, etc.
