IPad/Computer mount

I had the perfect mount but it went with my previous boat.
It was very sturdy..... could go right/left and up/down.
Each axis could be locked in place.
So many years ago, I do believe I bought it via WestMarine. True to WM’s philosophy, they buy a boat load and then when they are all sold, they may or may not buy anymore. In this case, they did not buy any more. I am open to suggestions.
Dan.

I’m very happy with this:

Nice heavy base and the device does not move from where you tilt it. I use them with 12” iPad Pros

On my iPad pro I use the life proof waterproof case and the Ram mount spring loaded mount with adjustable stem. After experiences with Ram I am not sure I would be receptive to using anything else. Bill

I will second this sentiment despite being a skeptic when we ordered it.

I put mine vertically between the plotter indicator and the radar indicator.
I leave it there plugged into a cig lighter 12v outlet. To use it I just pull it out and hold it on my lap and put it back when finished. Sometimes I use it for quite awhile surfing for points of interest and the nights anchorage.
I have the biggest i-pad and it never threatens to fall out of it’s perch between the two indicators. I really like this practice and I often compare the i-pad and the plotter.

I am hoping to find one that the base will screw into the instrument panel, swing right and left, up and down and can be pulled closer or pushed back out of the way then, locked into place so it doesn’t flop around.

I realize that my mount is not what you're looking for but it was exactly what I was looking for. I found it here. Just click on any mount of interest and it appears on the right side of your screen with all the specs & price. If you can't find it here, it doesn't exist!

Dan, attached are pix of the Ram Mount we used for an IPad Air. The mount is screwed in to the dash. Sorry for two of the photos being 90 deg off.

Used all last summer up in B.C., worked great.

Hi Dan, it was the B size 1 ball mount and arm and their mount that fits the IPad Air. I just downloaded their catalogs and picked the part numbers of the parts I thought would work. I ended up having to buy a longer arm to work in the location I ended up using for the base ball mount. If you have a larger IPad Pro 12, I would go with the C sized components. Once you have the part numbers, you can shop online for best price on parts.
