Phone GPS Mounts

Looking to see what you all are using for a phone or gps mount.

I would like a mount that will mount to the crossbar for the phone definitely and maybe a gps. I've purchased cheapo ones that mounted nicely but with prolong off road use would allow the phone to fall down/look down.

Thank you

I have a Garmin Zumo 550 on a Ram mount wired to the bike. Phone's in my pocket bluetoothed to my helmet. If you crash, you want your phone on you. The bike could be down the hill or on fire so have your phone on you.

Thanks for the input guys... RAM mount it is.

You know Toney. .... With all the hundreds of thousands of miles of motorcycling I've done over the years I've never thought about putting the phone in the pocket.... Sounds like a fantastic idea. In the event of an accident or whatnot. In the olden days, you would put your flip phone in your tank bag. .... You could see somebody calling you.
