The unit stays cool and operational for the whole flight. I am unsure of operation in turbulent air yet.

Stratus Dash Mount - not recommended
I was under the impression that the Dash Mount would securely hold the Stratus in place during turbulence. I used velcro to attach it to the dash. In fact, the fit between the Stratus and the Dash Mount is so loose, even the slightest amount of turbulence will allow the two to separate. This is not acceptable, especially if you are relying on the Stratus as a backup AI. I will use the suction cup, even though that tends to fall off the side window at the most inopportune time.

Stratus dash holder.
Nice soft fit, not a very tight fit, good protection for you unit. Just don’t fly upside down, it won’t stay in holder...

Greatly improved
I have an older one of these that has a slightly different design. This one is much improved.

Stratu Dash Mount
Placement of Stratus on my dash allows it too overheat. I tried it because the side window mount that came with the stratus broke. I've replaced it with a GoPro suction cup mount. My Stratus doesn't seem to overheat at that location.

Does its job
Simple product that held the unit in place on the dash of a C-172 on a bumpy day.

Some velcro would be nice
There is nothing to secure this to the dash (except gravity). Had to buy velcro to finish the job.

Not a good solution
Not recommended. Stratus 2 is loose in the holder and the holder slides too easily on the glare shield. I was hoping for a small mount that I could fit in my crowded flight bag that would work in most aircraft that I fly. It's small enough but not well designed. Suction cup mount and cradle are too big to fit in my flight bag. Still looking.

How securely does the stratus dash mount stay put?
A shopper on Dec 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: it only works on a flat surface
my C172 glare shield slopes too much for it, unless you velcro the mount to the glare shield
overall, the window suction mount is more functional, but you can only use it in a location where it can "see" the GPS satellites
so, this product and a little velcro could make you a happy pilot
Will stratus over heat if mounted on dash?
David J on Jul 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is a possibility in the extream heat. The unit has a fan to help keep it cool.
Is the entire cradle made of a rubber/silicone flexible material or is the top a hard plastic?
A shopper on Oct 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is all rubber/sillicone.
how does this attach to the top of the panel to stay put, velcro?
A shopper on Aug 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is a rubber mat that stays in place.
Stratus suction cups?
Marc N on May 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The suction cup for the stratus unit is item 7016A
Does Stratus plug into iPad?
A shopper on Dec 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Stratus does not plug into the iPad. The Stratus connects to the iPad through a WiFi Signal.
My first Stratus had a hard cradle that the Stratus snapped into. Where can I buy one for my 2S?
