The RAM-B-166-AP8U will NOT hold Apple iPad's in cases/sleeves/bumpers.
I've been using this suction mount for about 2 years and I have to say the suction cup is somewhat weak. I was expecting better for the money. I've suctioned it to glass only to see the whole system fall as a whole taking my ipad mini with it. I hope RAM is able to improve this system. Use a clamp if you really want it to be secure.
Can the RAM suction mount be applied to a glare shield?
You can try (depends on how flat the surface is) but for best results glass or the windshield will hold the best.
