Sounds very good. How far does the Evotech one stick out towards you, it's hard to tell from pictures but it seems like quite a lot compared to the Free Spirits one I linked to.

For those who have the new Evotech's... Does it vibrates when off-road or bad roads?

I travel a lot for bad pavement roads and off-road, and I think it will vibrate as it linked to the screen...

The fit is solid and doesn't feel compromised. In it's down-most position (on the windscreen slider) the phone is stable and doesn't break the auto-stabilisation feature on an iPhone camera (as I've experienced before from handlebar mounts), but as you slide it up to its highest point it does wobble a bit, but is secure.

I'd re-word what I said to 'sway' rather than 'wobble'. It certainly doesn't vibrate so the screen is very clear to read. I took my Evotech off-road and down by-ways all across Central and Eastern Europe, so a decent test.

It does stick out quite a bit, I don't ride off road but I hit a few bad roads and it did wobble quite a bit, this would happen off road I would imagine.

Probably because in all the time the new model has been available few have found an acceptable option, that and also because I feel like I've checked back on this at least 20,000 times  :008:

Anyway, on LeBombardier's recommendation I might be fitting my Evotech this weekend (still haven't got round to it), so it's all his fault if it doesn't work  :001:

Worth adding that in my photos you'll have noticed a black lever on the Quadlock mount - that's because it's blue by stock which is ugly, so replaced it with a spare black one I'd acquired for the outgoing handlebar mount. They're fairly pricey for what they are, but if you have the dollar you'll find them in black, red and white.

FWIW I fitted an Evotech mount. A bit pricey for what it is but other than that I'm very pleased with it. Easy to fit and looks well. Much prefer it to a bar mount, a quick glance down, rather than a slight head turn, from the road ahead is great for sorting exits on an upcoming roundabout.

I bought the evotech mount so i could use it with my cellphone.

I attached a ram ball to it, then the smallest arm they had and the cellphone mount (the one with 4 arms).

It sticks out a lot and wobbles like crazy at highway speeds so im looking for alternatives. Im regretting not getting the quadlock one from the start but i dont really like to use one of those cases but i guess i dont really have an option.
