Pros: Strong suction! Cons: I wish that I had easy access to the 'off' button on the ipad to save the battery. Works well for supporting the iPad inflight. Holds up to at least moderate chop.

Pros: This is the best holder for an iPad with or without a case Cons: Getting the iPad out of the holder can be difficult but worth it! This is the same ipad holder as American Airlines has except it doesn't have the 2 suction cups. This one is a fraction of the price. Great product.

Pros: Allows iPad to be mounted on pilot side vent window in a Cessna 177RG. I was concerned it would not be stable enough, but that is not an issue. This position keeps the IPad clear of the yoke, but close enough for easy use.

Pros: Installation and removal of the iPad from this device is easy, quick and safe to the iPad, and can be done while the suction cup is mounted on a surface. I think the versatility of this adjustable device could be enhanced if the rear mount connecting the Standard RAM double arm were able to slide up and down the back of the mounting pad. This would serve to compensate for the short length of the double arm, and the iPad could be lowered a bit... another suggestion is below in the cons. If flying solo, I could try to mount the pad on the right side area of the C-172 windscreen, that may work the best with this short arm. Cons: A major problem with this item is that the RAM double arm is too short, resulting in the iPad being positioned so high above the glare shield and panel that it potentially OBSTRUCTS the view out the windscreen. Finishing up my instrument rating, my CFI and I both decided that mounting the suction cup on the windscreen of our C-172 (identical to the position position shown in the Stratus demo video) placed the iPad so high that it would pose a hazard to seeing and avoiding traffic over a large area in front of the aircraft. We opted NOT to use it at all... bummer! See general comments. The product needs a longer Standard RAM double arm so that it is possible to see over it more easily for traffic and other visual cues. It would also suffice if the manufacturer would make a longer arm available as an accessory item at extra cost. The longer arm could be swapped in place of the short one that comes with the mount if needed. You can look at the video on the Sporty's product site demonstrating the Stratus box. The iPad is mounted on this RAM device and from this you can judge how much lower the iPad should be (4 inches or so?) to be bleow the glare shield, and manufacture a RAM double arm at this addtional length. It would then be perfect.

What surfaces will it work on ?
A shopper on Jun 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is designed to be placed on a clean non-porous surface. Such as a windscreen or window.
Does the cradle allow for the insertion of the iPad Pro 9.7 power cord as I always keep the iPad charging while in use during lengthy offshore voyages?
A shopper on May 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm using an iPad 4 and there is no issue with connecting the power cable while it's in the mount. This has 3 large cutout areas on both the bottom and top of the holder, you could have the iPad in there with either orientation and still be able to connect the power cable.
Does this work with Android Samsung Tablet 4?
David D on Feb 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My Samsung Tab-E is 5.9" wide so I cut sections out of the top and bottom retainers (7.75" wide) then epoxied the pieces back together and attached to the mount with the original three screws. Tablet fits perfect now.
does it accommodate all covers, i intend to use a heavy duty cover?
ran t on Jul 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you can post an email address, I can send you pics of this product and a video. Might give you a better idea of what will fit in its cradle. I use my iPad Air in a small case and it fits just fine with some room to spare.
