Most of us either leave them in our pockets, or put them in the tankbag and check them when we stop.

That, or buy a ram mount....

There's a bunch of cheap generic handlebar mounts on Flea-Bay for cell phones and car GPS. Most of them zip closed and have a clear plastic front. They run about $15.

I had my phone in the clear panel on a tank bag and it overheated on a hot day and shut down.

I keep it in my pocket now and I can hear the guidance via Bluetooth into my helmet and I'm looking at the road instead of my cell phone.

I'd be tempted to watch MLB.com.
