Smartphone mount besides my Iron Aces GPS mount

I am wanting to mount my Android smartphone on my bike to use Slacker radio and am looking for, in your opinion, the best mount for this. I already have the Iron Aces mount for my Garmin gps so that is out, what other good strong reliable mounts are there to hold a smartphone that could also be transferred to a truck dash or vent to use there also?

I just throw my phone in one of the pockets in the fairing and use it as my mp3 player through bluetooth. Works great

You could also get a ram mount, I keep my xm in the glove box, and mount the phone on the bars and use a Bluetooth adapter

Ram X mount all the way. Put about 5k miles on mine this summer during SW tour and no issues with it being secure.

Had the ram X grip on an iron aces mount. Was all good for about a year and a half. Always held device secure. Then one day I squeezed the arms to insert my phone, and the whole thing flew apart and springs went everywhere. Haven't bought another one, but modified a belt holster to fit the iron aces mount. Like it much better.

RAM mount x grip and I use a isimple transit blu (Bluetooth radio adaptor) under the fairing. No wires, very clean

I used the rider's claw on my '12 RGC - loved it. I didn't need to use their case with my iphone - my iphone case worked just fine.

I found a mount specific to my phone (Moto RAZR M) that has a charging port built in, at ProClip. http://www.proclipusa.com/ I also got a horizontal extension plate, so I could mount phone and Garmin together, on my Iron Aces mount. I'll try to find a picture.
