I bought to use it along with the Blubridge RX BT receiver in my GLK350 for the kids so they can enjoy a quality time watching a movie or netflix on the iPad, without having to spend $2400 on another rear entertainment system for this car. So far so good I need to take it for a ride and I will post an update to this review and may add some pics or video of the setup.

The main issue I found is that I wanted to mount it on the passenger seat (cause I'm a tall guy and when I drive I take most of the rear space). So the only way to do it is to mount the Gripdaddy from the inside of the passenger seat and flip the mount that holds the iPad upside down. But I'm not sure how safe it is and you lose some of the iPad elevation level (loss of couple of inches or so)?!

The pros about this setup ar:

1-You can take it out and put it on another car.

2-No modification/wiring to your car.

3-When you don't have the kids you can take it out.

4-Affordable price, it could be cheaper, but it's somewhat reasonable.

5- feels sturdy and solid.

Cons:

1- No ability to mount it on the passenger seat, without compromising safety, view and or comfort.
2- No storage bag, with Velcro to stick on the car carpet , in order to store it safely when not in use. it still $70 w/SH investment and you need to protect it.

UPDATE 02/07/2012:

I got the follow up for the seller/manufacturer about how to setup the mount on the passenger seat without losing elevation (Thank you Mark).

"If you want to set up the mount for your passenger seat instead of the driver seat here is the best way. There are 2 screws that hold the main plastic plate to the extension tube.

I bought this mount for an iPad. From my research, this is the most stable and secure mount there is. It also has great adjustments.

As an emergency physician, I consider what would happen in the event of an accident; any object in the vehicle can become a deadly projectile. This mount helps to take the iPad off that list. This mount is SOLID.

Customer service has been incredible. At first, I needed a different size mount for our headrest. I emailed late on a weekend night and received a near instant reply. The part was sent the next business day. Later on, I lost a bolt for the device. Again, an off hours email and a near instant off hours reply and a next business day shipment of the part. Zero hassle. 6 months later, I needed a new part, probably because I had overtightened the bolt. Again, near instant reply on a Saturday, and a no hassle message of "sure, I'll send it out the next business day."

We need more companies like this.

Keep it up.

p.s., I have zero interest in this company, outside of want to repay my gratitude for a product and service well done.

So I looked around for months and months for an iPad car headrest mount. With three children in the back, I knew that the iPad should be mounted in the center, between the two headrests. I read all the reviews in Amazon and other websites (both good and bad reviews) and I considered many manufacturers, some which I spoke with on the phone. My concerns where durability (plastic versus steel), adjustability, positioning, and price. I settled on the Gripdaddy initially because of its steel construction, wherein others where plastic.

We took a road trip (New York City to Evansville, Indiana) that took three days of leisure driving. I loaded the iPad with about eight movies and attached the Gripdaddy. From the instructions, the Gripdaddy attaches to the driver side headrest mount, which could have potentially annoyed me. So I popped out the screws in the center plate, and reversed it so that I could attach it to the passenger side headrest. That process took less than five minutes. Mounting it to the headrest took less than two minutes, and it was a solid mount that did not impede the movement of the headrest. The center steel bar was then tightened and then the iPad attached to the plate, which took not more than two minutes. If I wanted to take this whole thing off (when not doing road trips), it takes only about 1 minute.

The Gripdaddy mount is supposed to be for the center viewer, but the rod can be adjusted so that the iPad can sit a litte more to the left or the right seat. No reason to do that though so it sits in the center.

The iPad does not shake or vibrate. I don't understand why it shakes for others who have reviewed it. In my car, it is as solid as a headrest-mounted video. No shake or rattles.

Love it, this is a must buy to hold an ipad. We used this to hold an ipad2 with no case so kids could watch movies for a long trip. This product is solid, made of steel. Don't have to worry about this breaking. The arm can slide in and out and tilt so everyone can view it. Very easy to use, easy to get your ipad in and out, sits on two bars on bottom that are covered in rubber and one on the top covered in rubber. So no worries about scratching or your tablet falling out also the way it's designed it doesn't block the speaker. Wish I could give it 10 stars!
