I like my iPhone mounted down low between the bars. Looks nice, and I've been getting by just fine for years with just audible prompts while riding - but the screen does come alive before turns/exits/reroutes due to traffic.

The cup holder is admittedly ugly - if only my risers were black it might blend in better. Anyway, hydration is key so it's function over form for me.

There are shelves from ProjektD and AST that mount low. My set up was an $8 ram ball that fits the forward plastic cover bolt hole. And a $25 x-grip. The main benefit for me has been not checking the glove box or my pockets for my phone anymore while riding.

I also notice some using a locking knob to secure the RAM mount from being stolen. I replaced the OEM RAM wing nut with a nyloc nut. Small and unless they have a wrench its going nowhere. Nice and tidy.
