Phone mount

Well...finally moved into 2015 and now have an iPhone 6. We are just week long lite tourers and will now try Google Maps for our routes.
What handlebar phone mounts can you recommend that are out there for $25 - $30 (or more if it's worth it). I've been checking on line but thought I'd ask advise from fellow tourers first.
Thanks,
Joe

Ortlieb View the ULTIMATE 6 M PRO at https://www.ortliebusa.com has a touch conducting window in the top.

handle bar bags are just too handy to not have 1.

I'd put the phone in a bag, and stop before using it , to not crash and Die,

I use the LifeProof case for my iPhone 5s & their matching handlebar mount. I know they make models for iPhone 6 too. It's a great combo, and being waterproof is key for me, while living outside on a tour. The only negative is the touch is erratic when wet, although the viewing works.

Try a company called quad lock...they are in Australia and of all the mounts I have tried, I like theirs the best...but it is not cheap.
