@Snowhawk2015

Can you post or pm me some info on your mounting system and what app/program you are using on your tablet?

It's a real high tech system . TF701 ASUS tablet 10.1" screen (with opt keyboard for non-driving, laptop-like ease) with a leather protective cover. I ran a thin, stout cord through the tablet cover then hooked it on the dash glove box and closed the lid. Surprisingly stable, even when I was getting tossed around on Poison Spider. I use Memory-Map software, mainly because they have a desktop version for 3-D terrain navigation and very easy to import free TIF USGS maps. Plus, I had a huge library of Maptech maps on CD (UT, CA, OR WA, ID, MT, CO, AZ, NM, NV). I load my routes prior to a trail run (see TrailDamage.com), then use my actual tracks for verification to BoH. It helps to cut down on the badge delay that most people have experienced. The software runs off-line with its built-in GPS, which is great because there is little to no cell or WIFI service where I'm wheeling.

I was real excited about the the RAX and CarPerformance write-ups that @Sully put together, but not so excited about the associated cost. I'm still tempted for the forward driving cam capability, which would could act like a spotter for the never seen passenger front tire. The tablet hook up was a <$1 option since all materials/equipment were on-hand. Gotta love a 10.1" screen for maps. My co-pilot is a pretty good spotter and a lot easier on the eyes (cost is about even though, ).

Happy trails,
Snowhawk

What are the chances I can have a look at that in person?
