has anyone used this phone holder

I like to change the songs on my iphone its a pain to dig around in the backpack. Has anyone used this it looks kind of cool. claims to protect from wind and rain. It would be nice to see who is calling and weather or not i want to pull over when riding.

That looks promising. Been trying to find something like that.

I'm paranoid about using my iphone when commuting. I did it for a little while, but I just worried I would drop it, and I do love my iphone so....

I ended up buying one of those new shuffles. With judicious use of playlists, one can listen to the desired some fairly easily. And it was about right for my commute, and if I break it I won't feel bad.

I haven't tried that one. I personally have this: http://www.topeak.com/products/Bags/...honePack_Micro

I use it exclusively with a Bluetooth headset so the phone is really only mounted on my dash so I don't get interference with the phone being too far away from the headset.

I'd feel unsure about having an actual screen visible - I don't think I'd have the self restraint to keep from watching it, but if your sole purpose is to see who is calling I suppose you do need a screen visible.
