Comment: Rode from N.H. to Montana and mobile holder held onto gps, phone and ipod nano without any problem. Truly happy with my holder.Montana to N.H.
Had to modify, but worked great.
Comment: Asked online if this would fit my 2012 Victory Cross Country, and was assured that it would. It didn't fit, but I needed it for a roadtrip so I had a machinist friend modify it for me. Worked great on the trip!
dropped my phone
Comment: I had looked everywhere for something like this and was excited that Jafrum carried it. Shipping was quick. I put it on my Harley and was able to drive to my destination with ease. On my way home though, my phone dropped onto the road with a semi behind me. Probably will not use it again. May work better on a bike with less vibration
There are numerous options out there for mounting mobile devices to your
motorcycle, but honestly, most of them are way more complicated than they need
to be. One popular brand requires the purchase of four different part numbers to
mount my particular phone to my particular
motorcycle. That's a little much. Now, granted, these are model specific
solutions, many of which are chrome plated, powder coated, or anodized steel and
are backed by months of R&D. But, seriously, four part numbers? Just to put your
phone on your bike?... and don't even get me started on the price. This GPS1 is
inexpensive, universal, and easy to use. All you need are mirror mounts... If
you have removed or relocated your mirrors to the bar ends, you will need to
source a bolt with the same thread pitch as your mirrors... It is not
recommended that you operate any devices other than your motorcycle while you
ride. But, if you must, make sure to mount any accessories or controls you plan
on interacting with on the left side of the bike. Even if you have cruise
control, it's a lousy idea to remove the hand that controls the front brake from
your handlebars... and seriously, if you plan on using this thing for texting,
just throw yourself in a ditch now and get it over with... You can mount the
holder stem two ways. For a standard mounting setup, the bracket will look like
this... To bring your mobile device closer to you, turn the stem around and
extend it as far as needed. Apply some medium duty threadlock to the last five
or so threads on your bolt or mirror post... Do not over tighten! Remember, you
are likely threading a strong steel bolt into a lightweight aluminum clutch
perch. The thread lock will keep the bolt from vibrating loose. Now that you're
mounted, you can secure your devise holder to the stem by inserting the tabs of
the stem into the holes on the holder. Press down firmly until you feel the
holder snap into place. The device holder can now be positioned vertically or
horizontally by sliding this tab and rotating the holder. Next, press the button
on the holder to extend the padded arms. These arms are adjustable to
accommodate most types of mobile devices. For vertical applications, swing these
two feet out at the bottom for extra support. Press this button on the side to
release and extend the arms. Position the adjustable arms to best suite your
device. Place your mobile device into the holder and squeeze the sides of the
holder together. Make sure the arms of the holder aren't interfering with any of
the buttons on the edges of your device by adjusting the position of the arms.
To release your mobile device, squeeze gently on the sides of the arms and press
the release button. Avoid pressing the release button without squeezing the arms
together because the tab on the inside of the holder could wear out prematurely.
Use the knurled dial on the back of the holder to adjust the pitch of your
holder to your liking.
