Replacing Garmin Aera 796 w/ iPad

Recommended Posts

So I've been contemplating removing and selling my Aera 796 and replacing it with my iPad Pro. Currently I run the iPad on a mount on the window however it blocks a good part of my view. I haven't updated the Aera since it came with the plane in 2012 and ultimately rarely ever even look at it when flying as opposed to my iPad. I contemplated just sticking the iPad mount suction cup onto to the Aera but don't want to chance cracking the screen and ultimately see no reason to not get rid of it at that point. Anyone have any ideas on how I can go about maybe mounting this in the center section between my two skyviews?

In my liberty I use a ram mount suction cup on the lower corner of the windscreen.

Can you link me to this?
