Previously, I wrote my thoughts on the Snugg iPad case.
Now we’re taking it on the road, with the Snugg iPad 2 Car Headrest Mount Holder.
Some of the things that we felt were drawbacks have nothing to do with this particular product, rather than with this type of product in general. For instance:
- Having the iPad mounted on the seat makes for great viewing for one child, but not so good viewing for their seat-mate. When they hold the iPad, they achieve a much more neutral position. (Obviously, this is only a factor if you have more than one potential viewer)
- Unless you have headphones for the viewer(s), you will be playing sound directly behind the ear of the front-seat passenger. Grrr!
As far as this particular apparatus, it is specifically designed to work with the Snugg case, and does a great job of holding it securely. It is easy to mount and remove, and we had no issues with its functionality on our recent road trip.
I also had considerable frustration in dealing with the Snugg folks from the time we agreed to do the reviews to the time (now) when our business with each other is complete. Presumably as a retail customer you would never have to deal with that set of folks, so whether that’s a concern is up to you.
Given the functional limitations mentioned above, for our specific situation, as well as my concerns with having the iPad in the Snugg case to begin with, I do not this we will continue to use this product.
Your mileage may vary!
