iphone 6 case/mount full package
on: 22 Feb 20, 01:33:32
i have no sat nav mount at all

i have finally retired my zumo sat nav and am going with google maps via iphone 6

so i need the full monty and wondered if anyone had done this

ive searched and seen people use stuff in conjunction with the kawasaki sat nav mount but i aint got one.

i have read that those cross shaped mounts things grip your phone right where the volume buttons are

ideally i would like a waterproof case that something screws into

im half tempted to make something as i made a mount for my zx6r using bits of leftover ram mounts which i still have, but the business end had the garmin bracket which was quite secure

i have nothing for my iphone 6 apart from a flimsy case

As it happens I too have been considering mounting my iphone 6 to the bike. I will still be using my Garmin for navigation and have this on a high level mount and am thinking of the phone in a fork stem mount from QuadLock. I've read lots of reviews on lots of different systems but the QuadLock, to me, appears to be the best. I just can't seem to justify the expense for a bit of plastic!!

is this mounted to the yoke nut?
 or do i need summat else to start it all off to then fit to that?


thinking about it id prefer to have the phone mounted to a bracket such as the telferiser above the clocks so i dont need a ball joint just a waterproof case with some means of screwing it to the bracket.
i could easily make my own bracket if pushed

so i just need a phone case and some way of attaching it ideally with its own little mounting system i can adapt

Look at the Quadlock website, there are a number of mounting options

https://www.quadlockcase.co.uk. -  Go to MOUNTS

The USB charger in accessories might also be of interest

Have you taken a look on the Ultimate Add Ons website?

I use a Telferizer stem mount and Ultimate Add Ons case.  It has quick release and I've used it in all types of weather.  They also have a number of other mounting options.

cheers stevemat now thats exactly what ive been looking for, bit dear but they all are. Ill hold off ordering one until i see what mount its to be used with and buy the correct back plate

i do like a bit of bodging and have some left over ram connections  so might make my own bracket/mount

im thinking theres got to be another mounting point apart from screen bracket or yoke centre nut, but if there isnt at least i know what case to buy. :828:


one question steve can you charge it when its in the case and it still retains a degree of waterproofing?

i didnt like the idea of my iphone located centrally obscuring the clocks or in landscape mode above the clocks and realised there was a nice empty spot just to the left of the clocks and above the bars but behind the screen as in the pics.
when not in use the hardware /mount can be removed in seconds or left in place wuith the iphone removed in a second
im well happy cos this mount cost me nothing due to some leftover parts from other mounts id bought.




plus factor is i can tilt it almost horizontally and nearly vertical plus side to side to avoid glare
