    Yeah, 3000K's in a week isn't my ideal scenario, but you have to work with what you're given. And this time of year is desert time....it's pain in the arsh that its 1000Km's just to get there.

    3000 km isn't all that bad, just a return run to the city for me :)

    Enjoy the videos, can I ask what brand/type of holder you have for your tablet? It looks quite sturdy and I'm look for something similar to mount mine.

    Cheers.
    It's a ram mount. No drill vehicle pedestal with spring loaded tab tight cradle. The seat mount pedestal isn't very "shake proof" but with some additional bracing, its good enough....and its been tested in some pretty atrocious conditions.

    No affiliation to the sellers above, just a quick google of links to the product i'm using. My Tab only just fits in the cradle a 10" lenovo. They have other cradles that allow a bit more room, but they are more exe and the spring loaded cradle is a breeze to instal and remove the Tab. I've never had it fall out either.
