Smartphone or GPS Nav Mount

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I am struggling to find a compact, affordable mount to attach my Galaxy S10+ to the thin 12mm top cross bar.

 

RAM mounts stick out too much;

Others all are designed for greater than 20mm cross bar = direct to the handlebar.

 

I saw a guy who made his own - it looked very professional - he could go commercial

 

Any ideas please???

Peter, I have mounted my smartphone in a very simple but effective way.  As you can see on the photo it is a cheap smartphone holder and to fill the space between the ring I have wrapped a strip of bicycle tire.  It works very well also on offroad track.  In the meantime I have ordered a slightly more robust product.  I hope you can do something with it

Hi. Looks great.

 

Could you send a link to where you bought this from please?

 

I've seen this and although expensive(ish) it looks great and gets very good reviews. Waterproof (very important) and I like the little hood to stop the glare. But it would probably be have to mounted to the handlebars the correct way around.

...tested the solution shown above and don't like it. 

 

My single solution for MTB, Racebike, Car and Motorcycle since 2 years is this.

Super happy with it. Looks very minimalist and flimsy, but easy to use and keeps my iPhone XS perfect in place, also on the heavily shaking MTB rides.

I have the SP wireless charger on my Tenere (and another in my car) + SP Mirror Mount (12mm)+ 50cm USB-C to 12V connector cable (spiral) from Amazon. And I have the rain cover, although not yet used or needed.

    DESCRIPTION The SP Connect WIRELESS CHARGING MODULE can be mounted on any SP Connect mount. Just as it did without, your SP Connect Phone Case attaches in seconds with a 90 ° turn. Now all you have to do is attach this module for wireless charging to a power source (USB socket, battery, power bank, ...) and you...

 

For longer trips I’ve used my Garmin 595, not sure if it is big for the Tenere, not yet tested.
