Mounting Tablet in vehicle

 Some Products work better than others depending on the vehicle and device in use.  Some people able to use the Suction Mounts, some cant due to Physical restrictions or some trucks don't work due to obstructing the driver's view.   

 

Some use these Stands, which bolt into the Chair  (this one is similar to how the Police mount laptops in the vehicles), these too also depend on the type of truck, as the bolt it connects to may not be right / proper location.  

 

In all honesty, there was only one thing that all of these companies seem to agree on, and that is the Brand.
