This is a somethingorother holder on a 2004 wing (probably a nav system). I went to the manufacturer to see what they do these days, but zero of the products I found there appeared to mount the way this does. All I seem to see are handlebar mounts. My internal doofus check suggests that I'm not looking something up right.

Any thoughts?

If you go with a handlebar mount, you can consider trimming the end of the plastic handlebar cover on whatever side you like, maybe just ~ 1” or so (with a Dremel used carefully), then you can use a handlebar mount any way you see fit. I did that to mine and the handlebar plastic cut is now completely hidden. You can do this with a handlebar GPS mount as well (there is one that uses the same bolts for the left or right switches).

Noted. But what do we call the mount that screws right into the whateveritis it's screwed into? Either Ram doesn't make that mount any more, or it's called something I'm not able to find....

I was looking for something similar months ago (unsuccessfully)- if you trim the plastics of the lateral handlebar cover, you have a lot of options including a Tackform mount (anti-vibration mount for a phone as apparently too much vibration of a phone may affect the camera of the phone) or a GPS mount (I ultimately chose a phone mount, otherwise it would have required wiring the mount for GPS)- not a dealbreaker, just that I don’t use the GPS too much (I have the other bikes wired for the GPS mount).

In the center of the cover in your pic, I keep my TPMS monitor there:

Here’s my dash setup:

On the right (magnetic mount) is my GPS speedometer (battery powered), on the left is the phone mount (under which I trimmed the plastics) and in the center is my battery powered TPMS. The phone mount I got second hand- it was an Amazon anti-vibration mount (a cheapie) but it works in a pinch if I need my phone as a GPS. I might swap it for a Tackform mount (they’re better but a little pricey). For now, this setup works fine for me. The cord on the right is for my airbag vest (pull cord in the event I separate from the bike).

Yes, it is clear I could adapt a handlebar mount to work on my new to me S'wing. Looks good.
