Greetings and question about phone mount

Hi everyone,

Just recently joined this forum to find a good community and get more knowledge about the current BMW motorcycles. I am by no means new to the industry, having worked for several years for BMW Motorcycles NA and other motorcycle dealerships. I have owned several bikes, including a Honda CBR, 2006 K1200S, 2009 K1300S, and now a 2014 K1300S. But after returning to school to complete my master's, I had to take a hiatus from riding for obvious reasons. With a break from riding these great bikes, my knowledge is a bit outdated and having recently purchased a 2014 K1300S, I seem to be the one needing help with getting my questions answered

I was hoping someone could help me locate a mount for my Galaxy S7 phone. I have Google maps and would like to use this feature while riding rather than having to spend an outrageous amount on the Garmin Zumo's. If you have any specific ideas or suggestions, please feel free to shoot me a message or post something below.\

Thanks and happy to be back amongst the riding community!!

I have a RAM X-grip holder for my iPhone 6S in a waterproof case, mounted to a RAM extender and a MV Verholen RAM ball mount that screws into the BMW logo plate that you can pop off the steering yoke. It works well to get the phone in a feasible spot for wiring it up to an accessory plug or to the CanBus connector at the front of the bike. It also let’s you clear the ignition key area while being able to move the phone around so that it is convenient for use as phone, stereo,GPS or for apps like Pirelli’s Diablo SBK for ride monitoring. Luckily the MV Verholen RAM ball mount was a gift I think the price is ridiculous.
