Having recently bought a waterproof phone (Xperia Acro S), that does look interesting. It looks as if it could be a bit wobbly though.
(I was using a Topeak iPhone case (though my previous phone wasn't actually an iPhone), which is a lot fiddlier, but is waterproof. Looks like it might have been updated since:

The "QuickClick Band clamp fixer" is crap - I replaced the band which broke with a hose clamp.)

Very interested in your review. Hit some bumps on it!

that does look good! And their youtube video implies it’s pretty bump-proof.

Not having a waterproof phone yet, though, it's not for me. Yet! Maybe when i next upgrade (so, 5 years plus, then).

I currently use a Rixen Kaul map holder, when i want my phone visible, to navigate. It's waterproof and easily has room for any phone - probably not big enough for a tablet. You can even take a map, or a route sheet - remember those? Otherwise it's just in the jersey pocket.

How does everyone else do it? That is, having one's phone visible for mapping. Smartphones being essential nowadays  3

It arrived. I have to say I am impressed. My phone is a might big (xperia z) but it fits just fine, as does an i phone 5.

In the standard 'pick up the front of the bike and drop it' test it appears to hold the phone very tightly indeed with virtually no wobble.

Money well spent I'd say.
