Here are some pics...
I apologize for the quality of this one, since my phone is in the cradle I had to borrow a lesser camera phone:
Since the straight clamp (available in various lengths) has a ball on both ends, it can be adjusted to almost any position.
Here is the cradle and mount from the side:
By positioning it up and out, I can get a quick glance at the map as easily as I can glance at the tach or speedo...
The rubber web can be used as a "safety belt" to strap in your phone, but I've found that under normal conditions (i.e. not crashing) it isn't really needed. Although, the only disadvantage to using it is the extra time it takes to remove and reinstall the phone when you run into the service station for snacks or a bathroom break. I have ridden about 300 miles over the interstate and twisty canyon roads with the "seat-belt" off while monitoring it specifically for any shift in my phone's position and it didn't budge.
I would recommend (as indicated in the instructions) that you remove the 4 side grip rubbers and superglue them in place.
I have also found that a short 90 degree USB cable combined with a QUALCOMM 2.0 (or higher, if your phone supports it) quick charger works pretty well to run with the screen on, GPS, map app, and still have a little juice leftover to charge the battery. I have had trouble with several cheaper cigarette lighter to USB converters vibrating out of the socket just enough to disconnect. Also, I find that the 90 degree connector on the phone side helps mitigate the vibrations by presenting a shorter "lever arm" than the straight connectors. I use a twist-tie to hold any excess USB cable to the leg of the X-Grip (although Velcro wire ties are cheap and easy too).
One last thought... The X-Grip is available in different sizes. When I bought a larger phone, I had to update to the large X-Grip. That gave me a wider grip (i.e. nearer the corners of the phone) and kept the side grippers away from the buttons on the new phone. If you don't like the grip, or it is difficult to avoid your buttons, try a different size.
Search Amazon for "Ram Ball" and you'll find plenty of mounts available for all kinds of bikes and gizmos...
