GPS Mount Options

I'm interested in the Twisted Throttle SW-MOTECH Detachable Vibration-Damped GPS Holder (Suzuki V-Strom DL650 '12-) for use with my iPhone 4S. There isn't any detail as to what the optional Cellphone/iPod holder (large or small) looks like. Has anyone purchased this mount? If not - does anyone recommend a mount that will work in a similar fashion? I like the idea of having my phone/ gps above the dashboard for easy viewing. Thank you in advance.

Call Twisted Throttle. I've found their phone support helpful.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Once again greywolf you are spot on. Sorry for posting this in the wrong forum. I've decided to go with that mount plus a medium sized Navi-bag per the Twisted Throttle representative. I think his name was Doug.

I have the mount you are asking about and am very happy with it. I am using it w/ a Garmin Nuvi and the required RAM mount. I'm sure that you would be happy with it and it's location / construction if you can get a phone mount for it.

I got the Twisted Throttle SW-Motech GPS Mount with the "large" sized universal grip, since I have a case on my iPhone and any successor device to my iPhone 4S is likely to be bigger, not smaller. It works well with a 12V charger cable that runs to the OEM accessory port:

I mounted my Garmin on the left handlebar with a RAM mount so I can reach it.

I have no problem reaching a Zumo above the instruments.
