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.

Re: iPad Mount

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

Re: iPad Mount

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.
