Very Good Quality
Starting from the Double Suction Cup, this Ram Mount provides a solid method of securing an iPad while in flight. The mount will firmly hold on to a smooth surface. Then, the Adjustable Arm that swivels around the hard rubber balls on both ends allows positioning of the both the Double Suction Cup and Expandable iPad Cradle to an almost infinite number of options. Finally, the iPad Cradle will effortlessly and securely hold the tablet in place without vibration. The design, appearance, and feel are excellent. This Ram Mount product is very good quality.

Awesome product
I can't say enough about this mount. I have the 4th gen Ipad and it works perfect. Only downside is the size; so you'll have to do some moving around to ab able to mount on the windshield. The cost is expensive too, but it's worth the price

wears out in time
I purchased this about 4-5 years ago and worked fine but now it falls on every flight. I'm thinking the suction cups are getting old from the sun and use. I'll try it again see if a new one will stick.

Holds iPad with or without case
Easy to use and install. Just make sure you have a good suction hold before clamping down. I have used a single suction cup holder and it has fallen off. This holds on tight with the extra suction cup.

Built Like a Rock
The RAM mount is built like a rock. I use mine in a 45' diesel Pusher holding a iPad Pro 9.7. I have the iPad set up with moving map weather radar. Yes, we need realtime weather radar too! The mount is rock steady over the roughest roads in their country. I would highly recommend it for any use, aircraft or RV!

Rock solid but overpriced
Mine is mounted on the right windshield near the door post on my C172. It is rock solid with the two cups holding firm. It is very well made but over priced by 30 bucks in my mind. Flying ain't cheap but it would be mice to get something at a reasonable price for once..

Does this mount securely hold the Ipad Pro 12.9?
Reginald B on Aug 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I've been doing my instrument training in a 172 in Jacksonville FL (thunder storm capital of america). I have an I pad AIR2 ( I believe the same size as PRO) in a life proof NUUD case (weighs way more) and my instructor and I got rocked by the afternoon storms after a 4 hour flight and this did not budge or fall off the window once. Great product!
Does this mount allow access to charge port, headset, and lock button?
A shopper on Dec 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for asking. Good questions.

With an iPad 3 (standard model, not Air), I have not yet used the charge port. However, looking at the positioning of the charge port, as well as the open slots on the Ram Mount cradle (regardless of which way the iPad will sit within the cradle), there appears to be a very good chance the power cable can be plugged in without difficulty.

The headset port is easily accessible, allowing for audible voice alerts such as when approaching and entering a runway, or nearing restricted airspace, to be fed into the aircraft intercom, and clearly heard through the headsets.

The lock button on the top right corner of the iPad can be reached. However, it is somewhat tight to get to, unlike the headset port. But yes, it is accessible.

As to the overall design and quality of this iPad mount, I would definitely recommend this product. It holds the iPad firmly, even in turbulence.
How long it is ? Because i want to mounted at glass behind the mirror we use to look to the back
Hugo G on Jul 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Standard Arm is 3" once the components are connected. We off a long are that is 6" once the components are connected.
I have a iPad mini, does the iPad mount adjust down to that size?
Kevin V on Feb 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We have an spring loaded cradle for the mini is item 2477A. This mount is for the larger iPad.
Does this mount support the iPad Pro 9.7?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, both mounts do.
The co-pilot side of my panel has a large open smooth area. Has anyone attached to their panel in lieu of the windshield or is there a more appropriate panel mount? I am not interested in mounting a bracket within the panel, only attached to so it can extend outward and swivel toward the pilot for better viewing. Thank you. IPad 2.
A shopper on Dec 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I use this mount and on flat surfaces (side windows), and I would assume a flat panel where the cups have full surface contact, that this mount would work great. I use it on a slightly curved windshield and one cup gets a full bite, the other not quite, and it holds my iPad2 and its case secure. Only once has it lost grip in moderate IFR turbulence. Again, if you have a flat surface for the cups to bite-on, this mount is great.
