I just bought the ram mount and replaced my x grip. I have the center roundel mount and the whole package works well. The quality of the mount is excellent, it is expensive, and feels it! I also put a ram ball mount on my electric bicycle so at least I can use it in two locations. really nice going for a ride and coming back with a fully charged phone! (I think I need to get a ram ball mount for my golf bag as well)Hi guys, I've tried several incarnations of suitable phone mounts, none of which have been entirely satisfactory. Charging etc is solved using an Optimate Monitored USB fed under the tupperware direct to the battery from the handlebars with SAE rubberised and so far waterproof connectors. The 'monitored' part makes sure its cut off should the battery get below a certain value.
The main issue however remains, seeing the phones screen. I have a Samsung s9+ which, even with brightness turned all the way up, is invisible in anything approaching a sunny day. Has anyone resolved the visibility issue of which, I am surely not the only victim?
I have the 1" ball fitted to the steering stem replacing the roundal, or whatever its called. (not sure that's a word) which 'was' used with an SP Phone Mount and cover. In rain the electrical connector to the phone suffered from water getting into it, causing the phone to shut down. Moreover the Phones visibility was poor to none. My current Wunderlich Media bag solved the water issue but again makes the phone virtually invisible in daylight.
I've been toying with the idea of investing yet again and fitting a Ram Mount extended arm to the roundall ball bringing the phone closer to me with one of their new Ram Quick Grip Waterproof Wireless Charging Holder attached to that. It is though, an expensive option, and one which I am reluctant to take, only to end up with the same issues. I understand this new mount is waterproof.
Anyone with experience of this mount?
