    Handlebar mount for mobile phone?
    « on: 2016-06-13 23:00:32 »
    Hi, I want to mount my mobile into a waterproof holder on the bars, powering it from the Din Hella power socket on the right fairing. Can anyone suggest one that will do the job? The bars themselves are an odd shape!

          I have a 2012 K1600 GTL and have found limited options on the K due to the irregularly shaped handlebars. Good luck.

            Does anyone have a  Ram mount installed on a GTL.? I saw a photo of one mounted to the front brake reservoir but now can't find it.
            Called Ram and was told that no bike specific mount exists.

                do you have to have the handle bar mount ,like mentioned the bars are a odd shape ,and any mount will not enhance the look of them, I use a scala rider ,which takes all my calls direct to the head piece also it will play the built in radio and if you have the radio on the bike it will also play that through you headpiece to ,I find it a much more convenient option, if the phone rings when you are riding you just answer it nothing to press ,I find it a doddle ....

                  It's not just for the phone. I use the ram mount x brace for multiple things. Also, I mount the cup holder on it when I need to.
                  The Scalable allows you to use the bikes radio for music into the helmet? What about gps?

                      Do you know if the navigation works that way too? To bad the bike radio doesn't work through it.
