Designed for General Aviation in mind.
The smartPanel Mount for iPad Mini was designed by aerospace engineers to perform in the unique environment of the cockpit. The spring actuated mounting cradle securely holds the iPad in place during the roughest of turbulence. The clean, flush mount has a shallow chassis allowing it to be easily installed in even the smallest of instrument panels. Built-in ports for the included Apple Lightning cable and 3.5mm audio cable in the package will keep cables safely and securely positioned behind the panel, allowing you the ability to connect to power, data, and audio without the cord mess.

Packaged with iFDR Power 250-101 Power Supply
The smartPanel Mount Package for iPad Mini includes the Power 250-101 Dual 2.7 amp Power Supply to provide power to the mount and your iPad Mini along with a USB-A port in the panel! The smartPanel Power 250-101 converts all aircraft voltages from 9 to 48 volts (including common 12, 14, and 24 volt systems) and transforms it to 5 VDC at 2.7 amps (12 watt) to keep your iPad Mini powered and charging through all phases of flight as well as another product via the panel port.

Keep it cool.
As they are being used, iPhones generate heat that can affect performance, resulting in a high-temperature shut down when you might need it most! Pilots have found this out the hard way when using a temporary mounting solution like Velcro to attach their unit to the instrument panel. The smartPanel Mount was designed with cooling in mind. Each mount has a 5/8-in tapered hose / tube port built-in, allowing you to attach it to a standard avionics cooling fan. Each panel mounting tray features cooling channels to circulate air behind your iPhone to keep it cool even under the heaviest of use.

Simple installation.
The smartPanel Mount is designed for easy installation in your panel. Each durable molded ABS plastic unit is self-contained and mounts with only four screws. Our installation drawings give you the exact panel cutout details and screw positions in either PDF or AutoCAD DXF for precise cuts. The smartPanel Mount for iPad Mini requires a 7.834" long and 5.679" high panel cutout and can be mounted either horizontally or vertically.
