Phone, GPS and Camera Mounts for Honda FourTrax ATVs

Today, we take a look at mounts for the Honda FourTrax line of ATVs.  The Honda FourTrax lineup spans a variety of models including the FourTrax Foreman Rubicon, FourTrax Foreman 4×4, FourTrax Rincon, FourTrax Rancher and several others from past years.  All are built similarly.

Techmount Phone Mounts for Motorcycles

We have written about the Techmount motorcycle line in several past articles.  Techmount makes good durable mounts for electronics.  Today, we are concentrating on their products made for mounting a smartphone. Techmount offers a few different smartphone cradles.  In my opinion, the best for motorcycle use is the Techmount TechGripper which features a spring-loaded cradle that opens to four-inches.  Four inches is large enough for most smartphones with or without a case or skin.  It’s even large enough for some GPS units and can provide a grip that’s more secure than the mounts that come with some GPS models.  When closed, this cradle … Read more
