I'm certainly hoping that all those wanting to mount an IPad for viewing while traveling are wanting to mount it so their navigator (only) can see it. If texting while driving is so dangerous, how dangerous does that make using an IPad while driving a ten to fifteen ton monster down the road?

Just my opinion.

I assume those wanting to mount their iPad are doing so to use is as a GPS.

I know that I, for one, am definitely only using the iPad as the GPS. I see no other function that would be necessary while driving. The biggest advantage is the screen size and quality of resolution versus the screen on the 7720.

I use my Vizio tablet purely as a gps and have not found a great way to mount it. I also have a Garmin nuvi that I have mounted to the drivers side window. But, I like the tablet as it has an 8" screen.

Here is a vote for the cup holder mount mentioned in a previous post on this thread. I just received mine from Rand McNally (same place I bought the software from), and it is perfect. I can move it to my GMC when we are camped and we are taking road trips in the truck. And yes, I am using it only for a GPS while going down the road, but it sure comes in handy to have my iPad once we get there. And the large screen can be seen by DW so she can tell me where I turned wrong I was really excited about this and can't be happier with how it mounts and how sturdy it is in the holder---it is a well made product

I mounted the unit ordered from Monoprice (see early post for model #)

Its quite large; holds two laptops or two ipads.

Both driver and co-pilot can position devise to their liking.

Does the cup holder one shake to the point of going crazy going down theroad?

Then a couple weeks back, I noticed Rand McNally had published what looks like the 7720 Software in an IPad version for a hundred bucks, so I jumped on that.

After running it on a trip last week, I like it a lot EXCEPT for the fact I have no good holder that will let me mount the iPad on the dash. There appear to be many "adapters" on the market but nothing that impresses me as being the perfect solution.

So I thought I'd just ask if anybody has found the perfect dash area mounting solution for an iPad on your class A?

If you've fabricated your own, pictures would be great!
I just use my targus ipad case that allows it to stand verticle while setting on my RV dash
If you want to try a great navigation app, download "waze" it is a free user input navigation that will display slow traffic, accidents, police etc and will suggest alternate routes while you are driving if traffic is backing up ahead. I have been using this for about a year and has been great plus As more people use it there is more user input so the information is up to the minute. Yesterday as I was driving to San Diego As i slowed down the app asked if I was slowing due to traffic and then monitors your speed and shows on the gps map what the traffic speed is so by looking at your route ahead you can see any traffic issues whether they are accidents, police activity etc. it all shows

Correct, that's mostly what I use mine for.

The fun stuff comes after we park.

I use a ProClip powered holder mounted to a RAM mini ball dash mount. Next to it on the dash is the same setup for my iPhone. Works great!
