'Surprised at how sturdy this is!' This $18 tablet mount beats the bumps and works for phones, too

You don't need a Tesla to get a tablet-sized display in your car. You can just use your own tablet! A lot of us like to mount our phones while driving, but tablet mounts are harder to find. The Apps2Car Tablet Mount makes it easy to mount your tablet straight to your dashboard without blocking any AC vents (important in this heat!) It fits iPads between 7 and 12.4 inches in size, as well as some Samsung Galaxy Tablets. Oh, and it's just $18, which is 40% off.

This tablet mount hooks straight to the windshield and is capable of handling even the bumpiest roads.

You don't have to spend a small fortune on a brand new car to get a full entertainment console right in the middle of your car. This tablet holder from Apps2Car is all you need (well, and a data connection of some kind!) It allows for one-handed operation of the attached tablet. The gooseneck arm is designed to overcome the shaking of the road to give you a steady view of your display.

The mount can be rotated 360 degrees to help you find the perfect viewing angle. It uses a spring-loaded system to lock your tablet in place (after all, you don't want to hit a bump and send an expensive iPad flying across the car.) Perhaps the most appealing part of this device is that it is compatible with many cases, so you don't have to pop the case off your tablet before connecting it to your vehicle.

One long-distance traveler said the mount is perfect for long road trips. "This car mount holder was great for our 3,000 mile road trip. Easy to install and held our Samsung Galaxy tablet great. It didn't bounce around bumps and stayed right where we placed it the entire time. I highly recommend."

Another shopper echoed that sentiment: "I was surprised at how sturdy this thing is! I holds my iPad in place like it's nothing. I must say, I am very pleased with this tablet holder. I can put it different positions and it stays in place. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a good vehicle, tablet holder."

"We used this for our 2.5-year-old daughter on a long road trip. She's still rear-facing, and we just bought a Hyundai Sonata that has weird headrests that are connected to the seat (no bars to raise or lower). So we suctioned this to the rear window and put my little Kindle Fire tablet (7") in it. It held the Kindle for 5 hours there and 5 hours back," one parent said. "It also extended the tablet a bit further than the backseat, so I was able to reach it more easily to switch shows. The Sonata is a HUGE car, and it's hard to reach the backseat without crawling all the way back there. This was the perfect solution for our trip!"

Eliminate screen wobble for a more streamlined viewing experience — you'll appreciate it, whether you're checking the GPS or watching a show.
