Went for the cheap option,searched for appropriate mounts but they are stupid prices. Vendors assume you will just pay for an overpriced bit of plastic just to mount your GPS. Used 3 clamps and it is perfect.
Can you show a pic of what RAM accessories you used behind the iPhone? The RAM parts I have are sort of large and don't allow for it to be mounted like yours.
Here is my Ram iPhone set up. Got a claw, to short bar to x-grip. Had to clip to the side bar so I could mount the phone high enough so I can still see the speedo.

Redundancy or an device problem ?
Needless to say I don't get lost and I can tell you exactly where I have been !
I think this is the perfect spot for a GPS, easy to see without taking your eyes to far away from the road :)
Please, nikstep, would you mind to explain how did you build this set up? Nice forks, by the way...
Just did 6400miles in 16 days with this setup and it worked fantastically. Lifeproof NU case on an iPhone 6 Plus with the Lifeproof Handlebar mount. Rain shine, worked all the time.
I tried this on my Touratech D3 screen and on rough road it shakes the shit out of everything.
Did you brace it at all to stop the shake?
Is there any vibration damping / cushioning in the lifeproof mount?
I worry a bit about all the vibration being transmitted to my iPhone ....... :-/
It shakes, but not enough to make it difficult to see the screen. I honestly didn't like that the mount moved at all either, my fear was of it being shaken loose. Thinking back it probably saves the phone from taking most of the bikes vibration directly because its a little loose, it also has a lock so its not going anywhere. After 6400miles with much of it having the phone plugged in I see no problems. iPhones have no real moving parts other than the vibration motor and the optical image stabilization on the Plus model. It should be able to take shaking till the cows come home with no real problem.
Sorry for the late reply.
Yes its braced in multiple places, done before I bought the bike :)
Nikstep: Hoping you can show some photos of the bracing you have on the Touratech D3 fairing.
Playing Lego with Ramount's accessories.
Very stable, no vibration at all.

I'm liking this setup. The Spot quickly goes into the jacket pocket while "off the grid" whilst the Garmin 64 handles the navigation.
Interested to see how it's braced. I have my zumo mounted to my D3 in the same location. It bounces quite a bit on the rough stuff. I've been meaning to brace it for a couple years now...
Hi - where did you buy this bracket? What's the model name? Thanks.
Thanks! Too bad this holder isn't available anywhere in the US...
