weatherproof handlebar mount

I've been searching around online for a handlebar mounted 12v/usb charging unit. While i was doing that I decided that i wanted a weatherproof phone/gps mount. Most of the time my phone serves well enough as a gps device but I would like to be able to switch out and charge multiple devices. Also is there a multi type mount that will allow all the above and maybe also allow for a camera mount? This is going to be mounted on the stock handlebars on a 950T. Looking for any personal experiences and real world advice. I have never used one on any motorcycle so obviously durability and ease of use are key to me. Thanks!

I've got a Ram mount for my GPS, I think they make mounts for all kinds of phones .. very rugged. You can find them on amazon.com .. they're not inexpensive, but very very dependable and rugged.

I just use the lifeproof case for my phone with the lifeproof mount on my handle bars. I think the mounts 29 bucks and connects to the case really securely. I had the ram mount and case for my gps when I was using that but it was really bulky on my bike.

With my apes the lifeproof sits right on the left up rise and all my connections go straight to my fairing. I know when it comes time to upgrade I will rpobably have to upgrade to all new stuff again but I will just rock my 5s in the case longer and bluetooth it to the new phone for awhile if I have to. Its really nice to have my GPS, radio, and any thing else I need right there. No I don't use it as a phone while driving but its sinked bluetooth to my radio so I can actually get siri to read and respond to text as long as I am sitting still without touching my phone.

I bought an inexpensive mount from Amazon. $20 I've had my I-Phone or Garmin 765 in it during several down pours. Worked well for me.
