    I already had the 12.9" iPad Pro, so I rigged up a mount not unlike @James Deaton using quick release hinges. It is quite stable, even on rough trails. Climbing hills, it will sway a bit, but nothing jarring or distracting.

    My question is between Samsung 8 inch or 10.1. I looked at Costco and 8 is looking good size, 10.1 is feeling too big. Also I like idea Samsung as MicroSD card can be 32, 64, 128... it's more versatile than Apple thing. I'm really don't care about network option as it can be connect to phone or even portable wifi unit, as I have one for travel.

    My 2 cents is go for the iPad. I Think about all of the things that you might need an iPad for and having a larger screen definitely seems to check more boxes.

    iPad can't extend memory I don't think it check boxes. But personal preference. I have all Apple in my house until i sicked and tired of battery life. I got Samsung phone 9+S and never looked back to iPhone. Its was better product less expensive all app too.
    I will tell Apple computer is best, all Microsoft is really not even close.

    So I think iPad vs Samsung tablet is Samsung has more options.

    So My question is about size, Samsung is making 8, 9.5 , 10 ...in.

    Cut out three cardboard templates, mount each one in your rig, then decide which size seems best from that.

    I got the Mini. Size is great, brightness is not. It's hard to see.

    I made a mount for my 4Runner.
