Blendr Stem iPhone 6+ Mount

Title says it all. Just got a CrossRip LTD, and will be (hopefully) using the stem for my iPhone 6+. However, there doesn't seem to be a lot of options for the 6+. Anyone have any similar issues?

I'm looking to tech out this beast with some badass stuff, like complete phone integration for music, GPS, measurements, etc.

Edit: links for potentials included.

I'm in the market for a new case myself. That Studioproper iphone mount is nice, but since they don't have an included case yet for the 6+ looks like you have to buy one of their other cases, so the price shoots up to around $90. Also if you took a spill, I could easily see your phone flying off that thing. At least with a case/mount that's tethered to your phone there are more odds in your favor.

The Quadlock seems to be the better option of the two but I don't know if I'd want to keep that case on my phone all the time. It has a bulge on the back where it clips into the mount, so if you have a case for your phone already, you'd have to keep swapping the phone out to the other one every time you go on a ride.

This is the mount I have but the tether strap broke after only a couple of weeks. This is the one I'm now looking at for my 6+.

Agreed on the proper case. I ended up pulling the trigger on the quad lock. I'll report back after using it for awhile. Good luck with your mount!

I've been using the quad lock system for 2 years. It's pretty bulletproof and world really well. Phone is really locked in.
