Nicely done!So I've been searching all over for a tablet mounting solution for my Pro XP Sport. Several posts on this forum got me pointed in the right direction with mounting the tablet in the factory Ride Command location but I wanted a really clean install.
This setup is with a 10.4" Samsung Tab A7 but can accommodate any sized device, bigger or smaller.
- First I started by cutting a 3/16" aluminum plate to size and drilling holes to line up with the 4 factory holes where the factory ride command would presumably mount.
- Next up was adding an additional hole to the center of the plate for a tripod ball head mount with an arca swiss plate clamp to mount to. The idea with using the ball head was if I desired any adjustment to the tablet angle I could easily achieve this in the future by loosening the ball head and re-angling.
- After the aluminum plate and ball head were mounted in the machine I test fit the actual tablet holder on the ball head and could adjust for symmetry with the dash.
- Following this was a quick hole through the block off cover (with the RZR logo on it) and installing it over the stem on the ball mount
I'm pretty stoked with the final product. When I'm not using the tablet in the machine the dash still looks super tidy and there isn't a big empty tablet mount staring at you which was important to me. Furthermore the ball head with arca swiss clamp can be used to hold tons of different equipment. Want to aim a go pro or other camera back at the driver and passenger, there's an adapter for that, Use your cellphone sometimes instead of the tablet? It will fit in the tablet mount as well or grab a different one.
How does it hold up during riding? Awesome. From the 3/16" aluminum plate all the way to the tablet all the parts are aluminum or stainless steel. The CNC work is top notch and because the tablet mounting portion it self rests against the dash there isn't even any vibration. My goal was to have a setup where the machine could cartwheel and the tablet would stay put. I'm confident that this will be the case after my first round of testing/riding.
Now for what you came for, the pics:

Hope this helps someone looking for a clean mounting solution for their ride. Any questions just drop a comment.
Big thank you to all of those that went before me on mounting tablets in this location and posted their setups!
