GPS mount

What is the best way to mount my phone to my GSXR? I would like to have it available for using the GPS.

Never thought I'd grow up to be an asshole,
but here I am...crushing it!

RAM Mounts are the best. Never had an issue with mine!

Should I assume your using the suction type stuck to the windscreen? I don't see anywhere to use the clamp type.

Like about everyone else, I too use a Ram type holder, with the Ram mount to my Stem hole.



This mount is actually a knock-off I found on FleaBay, that also has the USB power port attached- making it a clean installation, never gets in my way, etc. The phone never comes loose either.



I then blue-tooth my phone/GPS directions, etc. into my helmet via a Senna Headset.

It's really nice to be able to send texts via 'Siri' and speaking it while riding.
Also nice when you get the text received tone- that I can ask Siri to 'read my last text', etc.
All hands free. Using the phone also, dialing via Siri commands, answering the phone, etc.
All hands free.
You can look at the screen in the mount for the map too if/when needed.

@Todd_Sails
Thanks for the pics & advice. Sounds like a good system. Unfortunately, the max height (with phone in the vertical position) is 6.5". My LG Stylo4 is 7.5". Looking for a stem type mount that will accommodate
that dimension.

Watching the video, with the phone being grabbed by either side, I don't understand why that dimension is important.

OK, I just spoke with Ram-X. They said that there are MINIMUM phone dimensions,
but no MAXIMUM dimensions. I was correct in that the length of phone is immaterial
as the mount clamps on the sides of phone.
I'm keeping Amazon busy lately
