Mounting an iPhone 6

Anyone mount an iPhone 6 and happy with it? I'm looking for a weather resistant setup for my iPhone 6 with the facility to plug the lightning cable to charge while riding.

Re: Mounting an iPhone 6

Summary... On his bike, my son uses the RAM Mount X with his Samsung Note 3, (similar size as I phone) and moved a wiring lead for a Garmin to a 12 volt cigarette lighter type connection just for ease of use. He used a similar mount in the car then. As for water proof, check otter box and other companies to see what you might find.

Re: Mounting an iPhone 6

Kevin, that is a slick radar mount and position.
Can you show us how you did that?

Re: Mounting an iPhone 6

I use the Ram X-Grip mount with a ball mount replacing the top strap on the clutch lever. I had to use a Drexel to match the arch of the cutout to the bar and grind a corner for clearance because it impacted the master cylinder. I also put TimeCert thread inserts into the bottom as the aluminum is extremely soft and I had the threads pull out with very little torque. Here's the link:

I got a small kit that had all tools minus the T-handle to turn the tap. It was about $78 dollars.

As for waterproofing, I use a store brand zip lock bag called portion control. They are perfect for my iPhone 6s with a slim case. I leave it open at the bottom and run the USB lightning cable in. I've ridden for hours in heavy tan and never had water climb up into the bag. You can get them in any grocery store. They also work great for toll money and tickets.

As for power, I have one of these:

I got a 12 inch lightning cable and it is just long enough to reach with the power port on the top bar mount.

I am hoping a simpler solution that's basically unbox->attach to bike->done.

Re: Mounting an iPhone 6

Well, if you go with the ball mount that replaces the BMW logo on the handlebars it is. I just don't like that position. As for the waterproof part, how about this:
