1200GS IPhone with Otterbox mount ?

Has anyone found an IPhone 4s bar mount for the GS that will hold both the phone while inside an aftermarket protective case? The yellow/black touratech version would suffice if the phone were without a protective case. I was hoping for something similar that would work with the case to allow for some weather protection as well. Any thoughts?

I've got 2 of the Touratech iPhone holders and think they're amazing. I remove mine from the case and reinstall when removing it from the mount. Word of caution, if you do get the Touratech holder, don't leave the bands expanded when you remove the phone as it will stretch them out of shape in record time causing the phone not to be securely affixed.

This is what you want...

http://www.ram-mount.com/CatalogResu...5/Default.aspx

It it completely adjustable so it will hold your phone with or without a case (I have an Otterbox on my Samsung Infuse, a very large phone with a very large case). One side is spring loaded make it really easy to load your phone in the cradle. I hard wired a charging cable (non-data cable) to my fuse block and zip tied it to the mount. If you are going to do a lot of off-road riding you might want to add a couple of rubber bands just in case, but I've never had it pop out.

I haven't fully mounted it up on the 1200 yet, but on my 650 I used this:

with a modified TechMount adjustable arm. I'm going to get this going asap on the 1200, but I'm a bit preoccupied with some other stuff now. I'll post once I have solution.

I backed this project on Kickstarter. They pulled in over $100,000. The Kickstarter campaign is over, but you can still preorder it via their website. What I like best about this one is that it is very easy to get the phone in and out of the case. I use it as my camera also so my Glif and Olloclip need the phone to be outside of a case. Add in the solar panel and internal battery and it really makes it my top outdoor choice for a case. Delivery set for early June.

An awesome case, but how do I plug in headphones?

Love the great design, but for me, they kinda forgot something.

I use a pelican 1020 case and mounted a Ram ball mount to the Pelican. I perforated the case at the edge and added a headphone/volume extension to it. I can open the case to operate it. It fits snug so I can leave the door open when weather permits for airflow, and close it for waterproof. I ride year round, I don't have a car so when it is really wet I am still riding. So far this winter I have had no leaks where I made the perforation for the cable or otherwise. I will get you a picture up tomorrow. I use the otter box defender and some times switch to the impact case. I beat up my iPhone cases, so I need to switch and get new a one now and then.

This would be the only thing holding me back from this purchase. What about heat dissipation. iPhone's crank out the heat and I know that is an issue with the lifeproof.

I use a case made by biologic and it is waterproof. It also has a hole so you can run your charger cable out to an outlet for charging. This is the best thing I could find for the money.

I have just ordered it for mounting it on my gs1200.. Is the mounting bracket ok? It looks a bit 'cheap' to safely hold my iphone4 while riding, but I took the guess because of your comment ;)

+1 - I have the lifeproof case but with the ram mount, best setup IMO.. Lifeproof case is the shiz!

I'd say it is bicycle ready, maybe marginal for motorcycle, especially off road.

Ok group I've become a lifeproof convert and pitched my worn otterbox iPhone 4s case. The case is much slimmer overall. I've now learned all the apple charging accessories including the BMW port/powerlet plug to apple plug are to large for the lifeproof phone case. Is anybody else trying to mount/run the iPhone while charging constantly? I purchased the Touratech cockpit cover 1 and 2 (multi plug dash) with this in mind from the onset?
