Boat appropriate iPad mounts

Many people started their life as a boater with paper charts. However with the digital revolution, you could load navigation software onto your laptop and connect it via a serial port to your GPS. Jump ahead a few years and we now have the iPad and the new Navionics app! This is a game changer. There is a lot to say about the app itself, but let us focus on some of the related accessories, namely the RAM iPad Mounts.

Here are the RAM-B-166-202U suction mount twist lock and the RAM-HOL-AP8U cradle, which can be purchased for $75.

It is easy to install and the suction cup version really sticks. It can be purchased with mounting screws but that means drilling holes in your boat.
