Verified Buyer Reviewed by bill from folsom, ca on Tuesday, August 9, 2016as far as i can tell, this is the only product like it. the clamp is excellent - it is secure and tight. unfortunately, it is 180 degrees from the correct position when placed on the cockpit rim of a kayak. the tablet part does swivel, but not the way i wanted it to.
the clear plastic waterproof cover is a tight fit for an iphone 6s. what i wound up doing is drilling two holes in my kayak, mounting a piece of aluminum pipe, clamping this on the pipe, then i took a different waterproof cover and mounted it on the tablet part. this worked well. i would buy another - i have looked everywhere and cannot find anything similar. one suggestion though - you might consider buying a waterproof pouch for your smartphone and fastening it to the top of your spray skirt. this would be cheaper, and if you have a spray skirt with a mesh pouch already, might be a simple and perhpas best solution. BTW i paired my smartphone with a yahoo heart rate sensor and software - really nice for training.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Susurrus from Montana on Monday, August 8, 2016I bought this to use a GPS app on my bike to track my rides.
First impression: out of the package it seems very cheap.
It does work if your phone fits in the ziplock that's attached by velcro to the tray. (However, that baggie will not fit an Samsung Galaxy S5 if it has a very thin case on it, and it's tight even without a case.)
Best part is the mounting bracket, which has the same size (male 1/4-20) threads as most camera tripod mounts, so this works with most tripod heads, or GoPro cameras, etc. The bracket is worth more than what I paid on STP, the phone landing bad is 1 or 2 stars, hence 3 stars overall.
