Waterproof Mount for iPhone

Anyone here have any experience with a clear waterproof magnetic mount for an iPhone? I would like to use my iPhone for GPS and music occasionally and would like to get something good.
Thanks,

I have a lifeproof case on my iPhone and I converted the belt clip into a mount that attached to my iron aces mount. You could use a rider claw of sorts as well, but when the cable is attached there nothing is 100% waterproof.

Another vote for the LifeProof case. I used the belt clip. Took the belt attachment off, attached a Ram Mount diamond base to it, and use the clutch perch mount. Hundreds of miles in the rain last summer without a problem, even with the charging cable attached.

+1 on the Lifeproof! I use the Kury mount that mounts to the switch housing screws (2) on the left handlebar. Also I have a (boat) dual USB charging plug in the left glove box. 'Works Great!

++ on LifeProof, I whitewater kayak with phone in my PFD and never had a problem. LifeProof also sells a handlebar mount. I have one but don't use it anymore, may sell it, but it was like $25 so I will probably just keep it. I have an uninstalled iron ace mount that I got for my zumo, I also got the claw thing from IA for the phone when GPS not mounted. I have a quick disconnect waterproof connector behind speedo for pluging GPS or phone in.

Lifeproof.... nothing else is even an option. I have an i5 with one, use it on the bike (handlebar mount) and it has gone swimming off the boat (Lake Winnipesaukee) several times! never an issue!

BigwaterJim.... How do you like the Iron Aces mount? I want to get one. I am going to bastardize a Lifeproof car mount and a Ram mount to attach the i5 with the lifeproof.

I am def looking for ideas on how to run the power cables... do you have a pic of that quick disconnect?

thanks!

I usually leave the damn phone home but I'm making a trip where the GPS will come in handy navigating around Baltimore and Washington side streets.

I am using the following parts for iron aces to life proof belt clip mount.

RAP-SB-238U RAM DIAMOND BASE WITH MALE SNAP LINK
RAP-SB-275-45U RAM DIAMOND BASE WITH 45 FEM SNAP LINK

I attach the male side to the belt clip and the female side to the iron aces mount. As for wiring right now I use a simple USB plug in the lighter, but next time my fairing is off I'll be installing an auxiliary power connector inside the fairing which will connect to the aux switch for power. Then I'll use a grommet in an existing hole in the gauge nacelle to run the lightning cable through. When I'm not using the phone on the bike I'll just tuck the cable out of site. If I didn't have an ipod in the saddle bag or I'd be going with the iSimple kit from iron aces for sound and power.
