Search for NomaD110 and check out his posts in the iPhone mount thread. (Sorry don't know how to link to that on my phone) he has a very slick set up. I've seen it in person, it's nice and very rugged.

Get the Touratech Iphone mount and a Ram connector (get the short arm). Then all you need to do is mount a Ram Ball to a spot in the cabin. Then you can remove the entire mount if you want it out of the way and it will adjust to any direction you want. Ipad would mount to the same ball with a different cradle. Then order up a 3.5MM male to male cord with an inline microphone and run it from the aux port on the stereo to the Iphone cradle. Boom, you have the equivalent of bluetooth in the car for 3 bucks and you can use SIRI, get text messages and turn by turn directions over the car's speakers. I have this setup in my pickup, works great. I smile whenever i see people trying to retrofit aftermarket bluetooth systems into their cars for hundreds of dollars.

Here is the link to the Touratech mount. I run it on my Dual Sport. It's didn't move around on that and there is nothing you can do off road in a Defender that will be worse than 80 mph through Baja..

Here's my setup, I looked a about a thousand mounts on line, I wanted a mount where I could just drop it on without having to plug it in ....... Mounted with emblem tape, drilled a hole for the cable where the LR oval emblem goes so I can cover the hole later if needed. Interfaces with the Pioneer nav unit.

Works fine commuting, when I go offroad I have a rubber band to put on it to hold it in place.

Hopefully one day there will be a interface where one can have full iphone control through the head unit wirelessly....

Went from a Otter to Ballistic last week and had to remove some plastic from around the connector for it to plug in fully.

i used the RAM no drill universal mount that bolts to one of the seat bolts. that with the Ram ipad mount hold my ipad with griffin survivor case perfectly. the only change i made was attach the uni mounting post to my center console with a little piece of kydex. now the post is mounted to the seatbox with the bolt and 8 inches up.. to the console. rock steady.

also because i used the passenger seat bolt, the ipad sits in the perfect spot for my arm to rest on the NAS center console, while using it.



pic: best pic i have on my iphone ... if you would like i can take a few tomorrow.

also here a pic of the iphone mount i am buying... my wheeling buddy has it and it is sturdy. also it fits all phones with all cases.

TIP: only purchase the version with the all aluminum mounting ball. the plastic/ composite version have not held up offroad.

Hope it helps.

All great stuff guys. Thanks! I'm going to get the pro clip for the phone and see if I can figure out the iPad after that comes in. Being I have a row truck i have a few less places it can mount too

As mentioned - I have the PrpClip with an iPhone. Not sure I would put an iPad on it though as it may be too much in your face/blocking the windshield (unless it's a mini). Though I haven't looked at the ProClip iPad mount - maybe it's adjustable - don't know.

Ram Mount

Anyone use the ram mount cup holder? I'm thinking about using their suction cup on my windshield.

The ram suction cup mount is the strongest of the type I have ever used.

Before I purchased the hard mount I used the s cup for my iPad....and it held fine offroad in the rocks. I'm positive it will hold a cup holder well. The only problem I foresee is extended exposure to heat and UV will eventually degrade the elasticity of the suction cup. I always removed mine...but here it's really hot.

Good luck.

EDIT: my previous post ...I have a ROW console.

Took me a while to respond but here are some shots of my mount. Obviously this is a ROW dash.

The spring loaded mount fits all of the iPads, even if they are in a case.

Installed the Iphone mount this weekend. The ashtray location worked out well.

Wow. I think I'd be able to mod an Apple dock ($30) to work. You could likely buy the dock and a Dremel tool for less than $150.

Maybe I'm missing something - is there something special about the $150 dock?

This thread made me realize that I don't need a new and expensive, touch-screen radio and dash mount when I can just use my iPad with 4G. It's perfect and way more advanced than any touch screen radio.

So I ordered the Ram mount for iPad ($22 from Amazon), should have it tomorrow. I also just installed an aux-in adapter ($10) for playing audio from the iPad through the stereo system and wired it up to my dash storage shelf. I also hardwired a cigarette lighter adapter behind the dash for constant charging power for the iPad. No messy wires will be visible and my other CLA will still be available for other uses.

Now I need to decide where to mount it. I would like to mount the attached cell phone mount in the dash storage area to the left of the clock/hazard lights/CLA cluster. And I want the iPad to sit just above the clock/hazard lights/CLA cluster.

My question is, what is underneath that storage shelf? I have AC so I know that's in front but below the dash but what is behind the AC system in the shelf area? Any major wiring that I could drill into? I want to drill straight down into the shelf. Thoughts?

My pro-clip finally came in. Very simple and clean product. Stays in place without the adhesive, but I used it anyway. Mounted as such so if I want to get the iPad mount i will fit without hitting the gauge cluster and covering only a portion of the radio controls.

Very sturdy, I like.
