Best Phone Mount With Apes

All,
Since I just finished the bars, I am looking at ideas for my phone to mount on the bars somewhere. I have a note 4. It is on the larger side of phone sizes.

- I was thinking next to the acc or cruise switch bank on the far right side before the bend with a mount, but the phone hits the tank. (I mocked it up.)

- I thought maybe horizontal above the gauges. Hits the clutch cable. (Might be able to tie back the clutch cable though...)

- I hate to have it on the grip area.

- Or just leave it in my pocket / belt clip and go bluetooth. (Buy a bluetooth converter and plug into the aux jack.)

- I tried a small MP3 player through the radio antenna. Not bad but I dont like to have it plugged into the cigarette lighter all the time.

I have the HD factory radio. I am thinking of doing an audio change in the future. I want to do other things first before I do audio. All I want to use the phone for is music.

Any other ideas / help?

*if it were me* and all that was needed was music from phone, AND was going to upgrade audio in the futre, I'd go with the BT adapter and keep phone in pocket.

I used to have an xgrip mounted on an iron aces mount for my iPhone. I used it for music and gps. One day when putting my phone in it, it just broke and flew apart, springs going everywhere. I have since installed a Bluetooth stereo and have a road tech zumo mounted on the iron ace. Much better, I should have done it from the start.

BT adapter plugged into accessory port and phone in the pocket is what I did last season. Worked good. Now I have a BT Sony stereo which is much improved.

I was leaning towards the BT idea. Does the GPS sound work thrush the speakers?

I might get a mount in the future in case I want to use my phone as a gps. Then I would need to see it. Besides that, I can leave it clipped on my hip.
