    What is the best place to mount your smartphone?

    I was trying to find the best place to mount my iPhone on my C600 Sport.
    They have mirror mounts, Break fluid reservoir mounts and ball socket mounts...
    Has anyone added one to their bike?
    what would be the best place for it?

    Thanks in advance for your help...

    I am very happy with break fluid reservoir mounts. Coffee cup on the right RAM post and iPhone on the left post, both on the left reservoir.

    Cool

    Wife's 650 has a Garmin 665 on a BMW mount, phone paired with nav and helmet so it stays in left storage compartment hooked to charger
    I'am VERY Leary of mounting any phone where it could get knocked off

    Ditto on the brake reservoir mount. Had mine for a few weeks now and it's perfect.

    I mount mine in my inside jacket pocket. Best place, by far.

    I mount mine in my bags with power turned off. It increases the overall performance of the bike and rider unit by well over 100%.

    I can still answer mine if I choose (Autocom, Sena, Cardo, etc.) but it still stays in the pocket.

    I agree why do you need to see it. Just answer it with the voice answer with your bluetooth in your helmet. If you are afraid of someone is looking for you then turn it off

    I use the iPhone for GPS (TomTom) and music thru Scala. Great multifunction tool. If only interested in phone, pocket works fine ;-). For those with the luxury to turn your phone completely off, well I still use the GPS as I directionally challenged and am always seeking the road less travelled...

    Inside jacket pocket, for another reason not yet mentioned: So you have a way to call for help after an accident.

    I will give my personal cell number to any customer who would like it. I do tell them up front however if they get no answer it is because I am on my motorcycle so please leave a voice mail. I will then return the call when I get wherever I'm going. Sounds like a good thing to say to your boss. Just explain the distraction presents a potential safety issue while riding a bike. And, you had a dealer recommend the phone remain put away while riding.
