Phone Mount Recommendations?

I want to look into a phone mount for my 2016 NM4 for GPS. I see handle options and tank options but the NM4 has such a unique tank that I'm not sure what will work.

Gotta fit a Samsung S5 (Or S7 in the near future.)

I use the Techgripper by Techmount that I purchased through PowerSportsUS.com.

I was looking for one that would meet my needs for a long time, and it came down to this one. I use this with my Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. Easy to install (5 min). Phone fit is no problem with room to spare. Tried and tested and very satisfied.

RAM x-grip

I bought the RAM x-grip which holds my LG4 no problem or the GPS we'll use for road trips. Love it and it its never dropped the phone. We also ran a pair of USB cables from the USB plug in the front left compartment so as to charge or power while driving.
You see in the pics it attached to the handlebar and then there's a ball adjust at either end. It stays above the gas tank without issue.
Good luck with what you choose.

Thriller phone mount

Got the thriller mount and adapter kit yesterday and had it mounted in bout 30 minutes. Looks great, solid as a rock and I could even hear directions without earphone. Only thing left is to. Figure where to pick up charging current. Thanks for suggestion

Sorry, that Thriller should have been Techmount. Sometimes. I really hate the spellchecker.

Hi Fellows,
I prefer slim solutions. How do you like this?

Here's my set up:
1. From the charging port, I used a low profile charger and a long (apparently too long) cable to run to the back corner of the glove box.
2. I snaked the cable through the vent holes closest to the handlebar.
3. I fed the wire through and up to the Techmount.
4. I secured the cable with plastic zip ties but left enough slack so it doesn't strain when turning completely left or right.

Hope this helps.
