Recommend a cell phone handlebar holder

Do you have a cell phone handlebar holder you really like? There are so many to choose from - don't know which one to go with. I need one for my Road King so I can use WAZE on my Galaxy S3 phone.

are you familiar with the concept of distracted driving, IMO there is NO reason to have a phone (smart or otherwise) anywhere near your attention zone.

I used to think I was overreacting, then I realized it was just a normal reaction to an abnormal amount of bullsh!t.

I've got a gps mounted. I believe it makes me safer. When I am going somewhere unfamiliar, I generally don't have to read street signs. A quick glance at the gps tells me when to turn and in what direction. My eyes are on the road more of the time.

Ditto RAM Mounts.
Also available at most Bass Pro Shops locations in the boating section in case you want to hold it before you buy it.

Why would you want your cell phone to hold your handlebar? I just use the handlebar clamp...

So according to my latest studies, ODOT and FDOT both think looking at, fidgeting with, or otherwise taking attention off the road, is not OK and can loose CDL.
Granted, large part of the lessons are based on safety, and avoiding accidents, there was a nice chapter on recognizing hazards before they become emergencies. Part of that awareness was what the assholes around you are doing. Road rage and innattentive assholes are a couple of the warning signs EVERYBODY now has to pay attention too. Among a few others, was to watch for drives/riders/bikers looking at some device.
Your opinion might vary

I'm just not good at multitasking.
carry on

I have this one. Works like a charm.

http://www.leadermotorcycle.com/PROD/EDU-B.html

I keep it up there in plain view for GPS, and also so I cam see who's calling to decide whether to answer on my Bluetooth helmet headset.

I have never had a hands free device for my mobile phone for either the car of the bike because I don't want to talk while driving or riding. I found long ago that talking on the mobile phone was much more distracting than talking to someone in the car. I don't want to even know if someone is calling. I'll find out when I'm not moving. That's ok with me.

That said, I repeat what I said before. I believe the gps is different. It helps to keep my eyes more on the road in front of me and not looking for street or traffic signs.

Just plain common sense the way I see it.

I throw my cellphone in my saddlebag and don't give it another thought until I stop riding. Don't use a bluetooth either because when I go for a ride, I can't think of anybody I want to talk to. Don't use a GPS, can't imagine ever needing one. And yes , I do ride a lot, 60K miles in 4 yrs, 15 states. I ride to get away from all that stuff.
I'm probably in the minority in this technically advanced world we live in, but too old to change now.

I've been calling those driders, they drive their bikes like they're still in a car.

I always counted it a plus when I got lost.
