    Hi I'm wondering if any of you guys have any experience with bike mounts for the Galaxy Nexus, I would like to use the gps for my cycling routes, and obviously it needs to be water proof, so far Egay is pretty poor and there seems to be nothing decent on any websites?

    Regards

    Kris

    Hi Kris

    After some searching I don't see anything specifically for the GN, although something like this is not very common nor reliable. I did find this and this.

    The ones on ebay do look el cheapo I agree. There are a lot of hits with a Google search, but I'd be wary of anything that mounts with plastic and has any kind of gooseneck. I'd be scared straight to put my GN on one and ride a bike :p

    gl!

    if there's one thing about my riding that i'm confident in, it's that my last crash isn't going to be my last :). my Nexus is far too nice to risk mounting it on my bike so i'll be using my Bionic during such risky activities!

    kris, ive used a seat pouch to store my phone, wallet, etc for years. i dont trust keeping my phone attached to a mount. i use bluetooth headphones and track my route with gps with no issues...only thing is obviously you cant view the device while underneath your seat.

    that takes me to my shopping cart, it probably works for you if it's in your shopping cart :)

    the first link is like this:

    _ttp://www.amazon.com/Phone-Samsung-Galaxy-Google-Immerse/dp/B005UOMAZ4

    the /dp/B005UOMAZ4 is what's needed to link to a product...


    the second link is:

    _ttp://www.amazon.com/gp/aws/cart/add.html/ref=as_li_ss_til?SessionId=184-6911046-5388643&SubscriptionId=D68HUNXKLHS4J&AssociateTag=amazingdevelo-20&ASIN.1=B004VSMMNU&Quantity.1=1&adid=026CD4TNFCK526PDVHFC&linkCode=as4&OfferListingId.1=UMPXbKBSLwkTNBzHC3at5m%252Bngp2Z08DHHnO4tzhQ3Lz03zrje8NrVhAmoTsu7sDF6unTzD0ZJ0haBGnKWWlot4l9Jdmh3%252FPjWG3RtsXgb%252BYxO1%252BYgM3KGg%253D%253D&submit.add.x=56&submit.add.y=11&submit.add=Buy+from+Amazon.com

    Hi Kris, I use a flap-style belt clip case for my iPod Touch when I'm bikeriding. I Zip-tied it to my handlebars. It's a crude mounting method but extremely effective. The flap helps keep moisture off the iPod, but it's not waterproof. I will probably do the same thing with my Galaxy Nexus, assuming I get rid of the iPod Touch. Hope this helps.

    I got this reply from RAM Mounts -- some other members posted the company name when I asked the same question:

    The RAM-B-149Z-UN7 or RAM-B-149Z-UN4U would work to hold the phone on the handlebars of your motorcycle. The RAM-B-149Z-AQ2U would be an Aqua Box solution. The difference in the parts is the holder and the ball that attaches to the different cradles. The Aqua Box lens will not allot the operation of a capacitive screen device.

    I got tired of looking for mounts that would work the way I wanted, and I didnt want to wait to order and possibly return items.... so I made a cheaper alternative with stuff I had at home.

    Definitely not water proof though (had a ziplock bag in case rain came unexpectedly). It feels safe enough when on the road, but I'll need a more secure setup for my main use on the trails. Considering how often I end up off my bike I may end up just looking for a nice solid hard-case and keep it in my pack.

    Amazon has some ok mounts that seem worth trying out.

    Amazing effort I like it, nice bike btw love the slicks ha

    Im not to worried about having it attached to my bike, when I bought my bike the guy threw in an iphone handle bar mounth which is water proof and looks relatively crash proof which is annoying because I dislike iphones :p

    I will need to butcher the mount I've got spare the knuckle joint and turn it into a nexus mount some how :p
