    I know there have been a million threads/posts/discussions about iPad mounts/positions, but mine may be unique.

    I am looking to mount an iPad on the back of the front seat of a tandem seat plane so it can receive Bluetooth info from a Garmin G3x and display primary flight information. The power direct wiring is not an issue as the battery us beneath the front seat. Any ideas?

    Elastic straps with velcro closures attached to a RAM mount without the ball attached.

    I was thinking similar.

    sorta like a knee board but the elastic straps are the right size to securely hold the RAM mount. And if needed, a small bit of closed cell foam is attached to the mount to tilt it to a comfortable view.

    Can you find a spot for one of these. The tablet could easily be removed and if you take some tension off the arm it could be swung out of the way. We hang a tablet off each of our car headrests this way. When not in use we just remove the arm and the mount and the ball on the headrest is barely visible:

    or

    and then both of these:

    and

    1) Use an I Pad suction mount to your side window, and make a long extension to get it your I Pad Ram Mount to the center of the rear of the front seat.

    2) Clamp this to the bottom of your seat upload_2020-8-5_20-40-32.png
