    Thank you for all the info packed your site.
    For my own, I invested in quadlock support for my iPad 2 ( .At time, I am delighted. He turned to the horizontal or vertical. And simply unclipped. I had already bought the same device compatible iPhone for my bike. For my iPhone, I waterproof protection, but unfortunately, it does not exist (yet?) for iPad.

      I largely talked about the waterproof protection for iPad on this blog. See the menu Accessories.
