Cell phone mounts

I never really bothered much with being able to see or use my cell phone while riding until the other day. I was getting ready for a ride and was looking at the front of my in car intercom. Saw a port for cell phone , so went grabbed a cable , plugged it into the intercom then the phone and low and behold, I was able to hands free talk on the phone ! I thought that was kind of cool, so now I need a phone mount. Wondering what others use.

I know Ram makes about the best mount, but looking at their X mount, it looks like one of the retaining features would land right on the volume control on my S7.

I fell in love with the mount from Assault industries.....I keep going back to that one , but at $170 it's a hard pill to swallow.

Re: Cell phone mounts

My Ram mount works great. I think I got it for under 40 bucks shipped online. nice thing about the Ram is you can move your phone up or done a little bit so it doesn't hit your buttons. Have yet had my cell pop out.

I'll second the SolipGrip.
I use this with a RAM mount.
The SlipGrip mounts hold the phone very tight.
They need to be ordered specific to the case you use.

Re: Cell phone mounts

I use the Ram mounts.
I transferred over a passenger grab bar mount with the ball base for a GPS into the new ride, and need to get a new "base", which is the ball mount, for my phone. The nice thing is I have the twin ball mount in my truck, I can twist the knob and pull the phone out of the truck and in less than a minute it is in the Rzr.
Once tight I have never had one of them come loose during a hard ride.
If you can find a way to make it work, the Ram stuff is pretty good.

I agree, the Ram stuff is good. I have a mount for my GPS. If Ram made the same type of mount for the phone as they do the GPS I'd for sure go that route. The X mount is the only thing they have for phones. And I just don't like it.

Re: Cell phone mounts

The SlipGrip mount looks like the winner to me. Made here locally. I just need to figure out the mount. I need it to come off the A pillar bar and work with my lock and ride windshield. There is a small gap that a clamp should work.

Re: Cell phone mounts

I have an x-mount on both of my ATVs, 2 in my rzr and 1 on my powered parachute. Although I agree sometimes the holder is positioned near a button on the phone, if you set the phone in the right position it is not a problem. The big thing for me is I have never had a phone fall out. AND another advantage is I can get a new phone and not have to replace the mount. I have been through my last 4 phones and never changed a thing on the RAM.

You brought up a good point...different phones. Thanks, I was just about to pull the trigger on the other one.

Re: Cell phone mounts

You could try the weathertech cup holder phone mount: https://www.weathertech.com/weathert...pfone/cupfone/ If you don't have any heat mitigation in the center console, it might melt and weld itself into the cup holder as an added bonus!

Re: Cell phone mounts

I have the Rockform suction cup on the left side of my dash. Works perfectly, I didnít want something in front of my windshield so was happy I was able to suction hold away from peripheral vision.

Re: Cell phone mounts

I’ve just switched over from a phone to a 7” tablet for my GPS. The X grip works great on both. Each of them had one of the grip pieces close to a volume or power button . Just slide the phone/tablet side to side a bit and it will stay put. I also use a silicone case on them for added protection while also getting better grip between the X grip and phone/tablet.
