Tried These Tablet Mounts?

Thu Jun 23, 2016 3:32 pm

Well, now that I have LeafSpy, I'm looking for a way to mount my Nexus 7 tablet.

I'm considering this:

and this

This looks like a good idea, but I don't think the gooseneck is long enough:

Anyone found a good solution??

I realized that if I have the screen on the left side of the dash the third option, above, would work. Also, this one:



This is also an option:

I got the first one, above, and although it doesn't fit my Nexus 7 very well, it's a good choice:

I will try to take a better picture when the car is out in the sun.

Here's a better picture:

Note the large-sized garbage can.

But, I'm finding that it's a bit of a bother to put the tablet in the holder each time I go for a drive.

That mount/display was just too big and inconvenient.

So, I bought a small Tracfone cellphone for $15, and bought this mount:

It works great. Here it is:

I find it's fun to have LEAFSpy Pro always running, but the main this I look at is the miles to go (improved GOM). I'd sure love to have a screen where that number is large, like this:

@PianoAl thanks for posting the pic of the disc drive tablet mount. I'm going to grab one soon. My suction cup window mount is a pain and will probably be served in the back seat window for a Nintendo Switch.
