Seems like it really was not designed for the Stratus 2, maybe the newer Stratus are bigger. I can't see this holding the unit in any kind of turbulence at all. I am afraid to even try it in my C172.August 22, 2019Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesQuality productIt’s working well.
The original suction cut style would drop off the windshield during flight.
It’s cooler on the glare shield and works perfectly in my Baron beside the compass.August 14, 2019Purchased

Unbreakable and trustworthy. I highly recommend it after using the suction cup version its the only way to go.November 22, 2018Purchased

11 months agoWould You Recommend?NoStratus Dash Mount - not recommendedI 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.September 9, 2018Purchased

Just don’t fly upside down, it won’t stay in holder...January 23, 2018Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreatly improvedI have an older one of these that has a slightly different design.

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.July 16, 2017Purchased

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 pilotWill stratus over heat if mounted on dash?BEST ANSWER: i have had mine overheat sitting on the glare shield after only about 25 minutes. but it is hot here in naples florida. i got a notification on my ipad that said it was going to shut down.Can the mount be removed easily to move from plane to plane?BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is a rubber mat to keep the Stratus from sliding around.Is the entire cradle made of a rubber/silicone flexible material or is the top a hard plastic?BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is all rubber/sillicone.how does this attach to the top of the panel to stay put, velcro?BEST ANSWER: It is a rubber mat that stays in place.Stratus suction cups?BEST ANSWER: The suction cup for the stratus unit is item 7016ADoes Stratus plug into iPad?BEST ANSWER: The Stratus does not plug into the iPad.
