I would be interested in this too. What app are you using to track you rides? Right now I am using MapMyRide. I am pretty happy with it. I also bought the Polar FT7 fitness watch and heart rate monitor. I was hoping the heart rate monitor would pair with my phone but it does not see it to pair.
I don't have that particular model, but I have been using an Arkon mount on my bike for about 6 years. It is well designed and robust and surprisingly well priced (don't let Arkon know that last bit though!).
I pulled the trigger on the Arkon mount, should have it tomorrow. @budven, I use the Polat FT7 and it pairs fine with my LG G3 using Map My Ride or Strava. You pair it through the app rather than settings.
Let me know if you are stuck and I will try and help.
To those using a mount of this type, are you ever worried it going to fall off if you hit a bump or something? I have a hybrid and do both road and light trail riding and use a bag with straps right now for my phone. I would love to use a mount like this, but afraid my phone will go flying if I hit a bump in the road. Does it mount securely?
The Arkon mount I have is the model SM432 in which the phone is also secured by a couple of elastic straps around the device. I guess it could still come out of the mount in a major stack, one of those "over the handle bars and bike lands of top of you" incidents; but probably not -- phone would be smashed but the pieces would still be retained by the mount and elastic straps. The mount is quite securely slotted into the handle bar attachment too, requires a good deal of force to unclip it.
Ok my Arkon mount arrived today, the G3 fits in it without issue and its a really nice bit of kit. The mounting bracket is well made and extremely sturdy and the whole thing goes together in a few minutes. With the phone in this mount it is going no where, I am extremely confident and did a 14 mile ride tonight and it didn't budge.
Can highly recommend it although the one downside is trying to use the touchscreen through the holder. Its next to impossible!

That's a bit of a negative. I wondered what those type would be like, thanks for updating. But the Arkon are at a price point where you could probably also buy an open design for those days when it doesn't look like rain or you won't be splashing through puddles. No need to change the handlebar mount as the holder slots in and out pretty quickly.
