Unannounced Scosche iPad headrest mount one of the best so far

7

January

When the iPad came out one of the first things I noted was how it was going to change trends in automobile entertainment. Why install one of those pop-down DVD players in the roof of your car when all you need is some type of dock for the iPad or similar tablet? The tablets offer so much more with navigation, Internet access, etc., and they're easily removable.

Several holders and mounts are out there but today I saw the best one yet at the Scosche booth. Scosche hasn't named or announced this mount yet so for now I'm calling it the Scosche headrest iPad mount.

The mount clamps to the metal posts on the front seat headrests. This makes for a very secure installation and one that's easy to remove when needed. I use a mounting bar for cameras (a cruisecam) in my car that installs the same way and my cameras never budge, not even when racing on a track.

The mount has tilt capability but did not appear to be able to swivel. No other details were available and the Scosche folks promised more soon.
