Which smartphone holder?
« on: February 27, 2020, 10:23:37 AM »
Hello everyone,

I am the proud owner of a '19 model, which has the horizontal satnav bar behind the windscreen. I am currently looking for a smartphone holder. I have an iPhone 8 Plus. I was looking at SP Connect and the system seems quite nice, but I have discovered that, in order to lock the phone in place, you have to turn it 90. Because of the size of my smartphone, I think that my smartphone will not fit, because it will touch the windscreen when turning it from vertical to horizontal position. Has anyone already encountered the same problem? Are there other mounts to use? I don't want to attach my smartphone anywhere else than on the satnav bar. Thanks for your help!

I don`t think it`s a good ideea to put the Iphone 8 as a GPS. The camera optical stabilizer will get destroyed!

I`ve bought a rail mount 1 inch ball (12mm) for RAM X grip and it works great my 6.2 inch phone.

I dont think its a good idea to mount any phone on the bike.  You want your phone physically on you in a protected pocket, in case you are in an accident and get separated from the bike.

Best practice is to purchase a dedicated gps nav unit if you need one while riding.
