I'm using an AMPS to 25mm female RAM ball mount adapter on the OEM satnav mount.  This allows for a variety of options for attaching device mounts.  It does extend the device aft a little - making it easier for my short arms to reach, but also creating mild oscillations in the device at times.  Has not been an issue for me using my phone as a satnav.  I have the phone mounted in a TackForm clamp that attaches to the female RAM ball on the AMPs adapter.

For power, I ran a USB cable up through the dash to the GPS mount.  This runs over to the inside of the right mirror pod, where I have an SAE pigtail coming off the battery for my battery tender hookup.  SAE to USB adapter here gets me power to the phone cable.  Not the most elegant solution, but it was simple to set up and only thing I had to buy was the SAE to USB adapter.
