I had a RAM X-Grip to hold my phone or GPS but never felt comfortable with the phone in it.

Just got a new RAM spring-loaded mount today (photo) and love it. A big part of the reason I bought it was lots of Google reviewers saying the same thing ... didn't trust the X-Grip and now THRILLED with the rock-solid hold of the spring-loaded mount. I will add one of those reviews after this post.

It's cheap and easy. Add a RAM base that screws into the master cylinder holder (photo), get a RAM double socket arm and you're in business. Use the phone to push up the top two claws and slide it in (one-handed).

I ordered a master cylinder base for the left side. I will use my X-Grip there to hold my refurbished Garmin GPS (if that falls, I'm out $60, which is better than my $600 iPhone hurtling toward the pavement).

I like the Ram system. They have a lot of options for just about mounting anything. I use mine for mounting my MP3 player and it works fine. My wife had some little plastic "bonnets" for covering up small left over food dishes. They work fine if it starts to rain for covering up the MP3 player so I can keep Jamming to my Oldies.

I have one on each side of the bike; they are invaluable. The right-hand side one has a ball on the front, too; it is used frequently for hanging my crash helmet on.Smile

Does anybody know of a smartphone mount which would clamp onto the coaming? I am hoping to mount my phone onto the coaming so that it sits behind the screen and above the coaming...if you get my drift.

Can't see anything on t'interweb so far... Shocked

"What is a coaming?"

Sounds like it might be a Brit word for dashboard.

Nope, dashboard is ..... dashboard over here too bud  

I'm guessing he means the louvre vents on either side of the dashboard, something along the lines of .... https://tinyurl.com/yxerl4xn .... might fit the bill

"Cowling" is a term related to boating. So I'm guessing it's #14 & #45 in below illustration.

Oops. The correct word is "coaming".

No no, cowling is something quite different. I've only ever heard it referred to as coaming, perhaps more so with regard to aircraft cockpit sides and instrument panel trimming, although it was originally a nautical term.

Anyhow, after searching the web some more I think I'll have to buy something which has a clamping device and buy a separate phone holder, then somehow marry them together. I would like my phone to sit behind the screen just above the....the.....the....coaming.

Stop press!.....I don't know how I didn't see this before. This is the kind of thing I have in mind. It's hard to tell whether the rake of the screen will allow room.

I suppose I'd better suck it and see...!

That's the same thing I came up with. But I guess my brain had a senior moment when I posted that unfamiliar word, so wrote "cowling" instead of "coaming". Got it mostly right though. Thanks Terrier.

I just keep my phone in my pocket or in the left cubby plugged in to keep its charge topped up. I have a Sena Bluetooth unit on my helmet which links to my phone. I can operate the phone from a button on the side of my helmet for calls. For GPS routing I set it up on the phone. With the link to my helmet I don't often have to take it out and look at it, just follow the voice cues. With the phone locked inside the cubby with the 12V outlet, it stays fully charged. A side benefit is that I can't get off the bike and forget the phone on a mount available to the nearest thief.

When I was flying, we would call that part the "Glareshield". Honda calls it the "Meter Cover".

Don't buy that holder, it's crap. I bought one to put on my GT86 "Coaming" and even with really strong D/Sided it came off after a few days, the only way you could do it permanently would be to screw or bolt it down & I wasn't doing that to my 86.

Coaming at least in this country would mean the trim on the edge of a deck or hatch that precents water from dripping or running inside the cockpit or cabin. Coaming around a deck house top keeps water from slopping below deck.

Thanks for that Goonerkev. Do you think that the holder would actually fit on the silverwing coaming behind the screen? I'm asking because I wouldn't mind bolting it on.

Just be sure not to confuse coaming with gloaming. If we have any Scottish members they probably could help out with that. Then of course there's roaming but I can't find the definition for you because it seems to be out somewhere. I used foaming bubbles to clean the sink this morning. Last year I was loaming our yard to enrich the soil with loam.

I think I may have confused the word with loaming or perhaps gloaming, I don't know. All I do know is that I read a lot of aviation books (my fancy) and coaming is used a lot by aviation legends and all types of technical references regarding aeroplanes. So, coaming it is, like it or not and that's where my phone will be positioned. tongue

I made that what you were talking about.
It worked pretty well until the vibration set in.
The Material is too soft to give much support no matter what tricks you use. I was going to use some suction cups on the screen to stabilize and hold and then with 40 kmh on a smooth mountain roas my Galaxy s5 what I put before in a chap plastic cover got thrown on the street.
5 years I have that phone and not a single blemish. now I have a small dent and 2 small scratches on the frame.
Then I saw this holder for a baby stroller who had a big thread and a ball joint to velkro mount it.
I removed the Honda plate from the top of the steering cover and stuck it on the dash. Then I drilled a hole that the thread barely fit through and screwed it on the back with the original nut. To remove just unscrew and put the Honda plate back and you see nothing.
I also used the Dremel to make a hole that a charger cable fit in perfectly through the bottom holder. The charger plug sticks out enough to hold the phone also but it is not necessary becaus the inward bend holding clips are pretty strong. To unmount the phone just press the white levers together.
Works pretty well I just wish Honda had put the keyhole at a different place.
