Tallon Systems have rolled out an iPad mount that allows you to use your favorite iOS device on the boat. This is infact, a must-have accessory for those who like using their iPad for navigation. You can combine it with their USB Elite socket that can provide power to your USB devices as well.
Since iPad is so much more portable than laptops and supports instant-on capability, it makes sense to use the iPad with this mount instead of a bulky laptop with laptop mount. The price is a bit on the high side though, costing you 110 dollars for a single piece. [official product page]
