I have a Lifeproof case with the handle mount. Works great but haven't been in the wet with it yet. Unfortunately everything is à la carte. It only comes with the case, a little microfiber cloth and a screw in headphone jack connector. I got mine off Amazon with the belt clip and handlebar mount for $100. Here's the link to their website.

I don't have a waterproof case on mine, but you might want to touch base with IronAces, they are a sponsor here, and they are totally up to speed on the cases and mounts.
I have thier mount designed for Iphone on my bike and it works like a champ.

Topeak mount

Been lookin at some of these mounts and ran across this one designed for bicycles, any thoughts. My thought was that I could drill a hole through the inner fairing on the left side to facilitate mounting.

I also saw a RG at the races a few weeks ago that had a mount similar to this for a Garmin unit. It had Garmin imprinted on the mount and had electrical contacts, making it a simple docking station. Does any body know what model this might be ?

Nice, just found about their cases and was thinking about geting one. I did not they had a handle bar mount as well. How is the iPhone using for navigation? Seems the screen may be too small? If you get a cable to go from the ear phone jack on the phone to the Aux outlet in the radio does the audio direction go over the speakers?

At least mounted to the handlebars instead of on the dash it would be closer to the eyes for better readability.

Yes, the audio directions come through loud and clear.
