New Product – The Off-Road & Marine Tablet Cradle Mount
We recently upgraded our Off-Road & Marine Tablet Mount with 1.5″ Balls & Arms by RAM Mounts. It was soon after this Marty contacted us looking for a solution to mount an iPad Pro in his boat. Marty had also read our article “iPad as a Boat GPS / Chart-plotter, Radar & Sounder – Part 1”. His goal was to use the iPad Pro in the same manner.
Unfortunately, the Off-Road & Marine Tablet Mount won’t work with the iPad Pro. This is due to the Apple logo not being a perfect seal. As a result, our Vacuum Mounts will not hold vacuum and sucks air through the logo. As a result, the Off-Road & Marine Tablet Cradle Mount was born.
After discussing Marty’s requirements we decided to prototype a new product using the RAM Mounts Tab Tite Tablet Cradles. The added benefit of using the Ram Mounts Cradles is they accommodate a large selection of Tablet Cases, Skins and Sleeves. With Marty’s input, we assembled the first prototype and sent it to him for testing.
After installing the Off-Road & Marine Tablet Cradle Mount in his boat Marty put it through its paces. He installed the Navionics software so he can use his Ipad Pro as a Marine GPS / Chartplotter. The first field test was conducted in 25-knot winds. The Off-Road & Marine Tablet Cradle Mount kept the iPad Pro super steady with little to no vibration. Subsequently, it can be mounted in various locations without drilling holes.
With field testing completed, we launched the Off-Road & Marine Tablet Cradle Mount as a new product. We stock the popular RAM Mounts Tab Tite Cradles to accommodate a large selection of tablet devices. If you are unsure which Cradle best suits your tablet please Contact Us.
