the suction cup ipad mini mount does not need to be used with the plate that has the suction cups.

i.e.- mobarmor had the foresight to make the surface mount end of their ipad mini windshield mount magnetic.

I put my ipad mini in a waterproof case, slapped it in the mount and stuck it to the builtright bit. it doesnt move.

This also allows me to remove it, and use a mount like you're using for my radar detector. ( I dont like blendmounts because if you get pulled over, there is no way to pull it off the mirror, so it is pretty much a " write me a ticket please" kind of scenario with the blendmount.

With my solution, i can snatch it off the dash in a heartbeat.


I also love that the mobarmor case for the xgps160 has the perfect sized bolt to just bolt it to the builtright bit.

so the GPS receiver and tablet stick right on the builtright mount, stay put and are convenient.

Sweet I'll have to look into that mob armour mount for the iPad. Sounds pretty much exactly what I'm looking for.

That's badass, so you are able to ditch the suction cup for the magnet?

yeah. its just a big plate with suction cups screwed to it. the tablet mount itself has a magnetic base.

The one that came with mine is sitting in the box.
