Re: Iphone 4s navigation

I use the Givi S850 universal holder. It will hold other small items also. I've had mine for about 3 years now.

The eBay price is a good price as the item sells between $65-$75.

Re: Iphone 4s navigation

I use an Otterbox case and belt clip with my 4s. I have mine mounted very cheaply and satisfactorily on my 400. I don't know if it will work on a 650. Also, I don't know if the viewing angle would work out as well. Here's some pics:

'08 650 • Clearview with vent • Kuryakyn grips • GIVI V46 top case and E21 side cases • McCruise cruise control

Better to have scooted and got lost, than to never have scooted at all.

for a mounting plate that fits on your brake reservoir
& uses RAM mounting accessories.
Mine works well for my Garmin GPS.

It is well with my soul.

Re: Iphone 4s navigation

I use one of these mounted upside down on the upper face of the instrument cluster :

I then use one of these to hold the iPhone:

The phone does obstruct the view of the speedo but the TomTom app shows your speed at all times and is a **** sight more accurate than the Burgman speedo.

I do use a tether cable in case the suction fails but it never has done (so far!)

I use an iPhone 4 with the Ultimate Addons case as shown above by MJR. I have it mounted on a RAM brake reservoir mount and a lockable RAM ball mount for the case. I have it wired in to the back of the cigarette lighter socket on my 650 so it will charge whilst I am using it. It comes with a safety tether which I agree is an important accessory.

The only problem I find is that the touch screen does not work with motorcycle gloves. Hopefully someone will come up with gloves that have fingertips that will work on an iPhone screen.

I'm old fashioned I suppose, is use a good old Garmin 1450 with a universal ram mount on the brake reservoir.

When trying to decide on a GPS solution, I thought of three determining factors. One, a dedicated gps will not be interrupted by phone calls, texts, etc. two, the screen is very glove friendly. And most important, when it kicks off the bike for whatever reason (accident, bump, pothole, etc.), which would I rather lose, an $800 iPhone with all my contacts and info, or a $50, easily replaceable Garmin?

And I have had one kick off the bike. Good decision.
