But for navigation I need a better solution as I need to see the screen.
This might suit you I reckon

Don't know if the touch screen would work through the cover though.

Try one of these. Not sure how well it does with the weight but I attach mine to a camel bak when mountain biking
that looks interesting. Any idea if they sell those in the states?

It says "USA Store" in pretty huge letters on, so I would assume yes

Nah, they don't look don't look remotely waterproof, and I don't have enough real estate on my recumbent bars to fit them either..
A forearm mount would be ideal for me.

I used an aquapac years ago for riding lejog, they do work, but don't offer much protection except against the elements.
That phones too big!
have you never held anything bigger than 4" in your hand?

Anyone still interested in an armband? I'm thinking of just trying to make one.

Upper arm would be way more comfortable, I think, for jogging, but how cool would it be to have your very own PIP-Boy strapped to your wrist?

Anyway, I think I may venture down to the LA Garment District to see if I can source some materials to whip together a prototype or two. If there's any interest (and if I'm happy with what I come up with), I'll post them here to see if anyone wants one made.

If anyone is looking for an armband for the dell streak 5 you might want to try one that was designed for the samsung note. It may fit since the arm band is designed for 5.3" screen. They have it available on ebay right now, I'm gonna try it out.

Thats a great idea! Haven't thought about it this. I'll definitely try one of the Note's armbands.
Maybe there are other accessoires of the note which will fit with the streak as well. Would at least triple the amount of available accessoires
