iPad Mount
 
For those of you who use an iPad on your boat (as either a backup to charts or your main chartplotter), what mount do you have? I need to mount ours down below because it gets too hot in the sun, but I still need to see it from the cockpit. I was thinking a swing-arm style would do the trick, but there are a plethora to choose from.

Thanks.

Ram Mounts. Sturdy construction.

Definitely second the Ram mounts although I had to change out some of the hardware to stainless. Not really a big deal though.

I was looking at the Ram Mounts website before I posted here. There are quite a few to choose from. Do either of you remember which one you have?

Thanks.

iphone, ipad, tablet, smartphone, valet, tournez, folio, mounts, charger, thejoyfactory | The Joy Factory

These look cool. Haven't used them. Look functional.

Good luck. So far, we're very happy with our set-up.
