    I've got an S9 with an Otter Defender Case which makes it too large to fit.

    What cases are others finding will fit? I like the protection of the Defender, but not being able to fit it in the compartment is frustrating. Really can't figure out what BMW designers were thinking, even if they simply changed the opening and kept the internal size a lot more items might fit. Poor packaging/ergo design.

    Get a tank bag. It will hold more than one phone, plus charging cords, a power bank, maps, reading glasses, to name a few.IMG_0105-1 (2).JPG

    Alan, the S10 is a little larger then the S9, my S10 fits with the Pelican Protector and the earlier posted USB wire. The Pelican provides great protection.

    Thanks for the help, I'll check it out. I like Pelican products all the stuff I've seen from them has been well made.

    Just want to say thanks for this thread. Itís been incredibly helpful.

    Anyone ever tried to use the space that holds the GPS to be repurposed for a phone?
