Twojump36, it's the iOttie Easy Touch Pad holders for the iPhone and iPad Mini I drive with. I use The app Waze as my GPS on the iPad. These holders are great - even on the bouncy FR3 dash, they stay attached.

We've also added several. We tinted the windows and added the eyebrow to the front - air compressors, macerator, soap dispensers in shower , replaced all speakers plus added two in br, and a sub as well as a Bluetooth controller outside. Hubs added blind spot indicators, a camera w Dvr for front and bigger indicator lights on front corners (Peterbilt) back up leds, back up sensors, led lighting in cabinets and entry. Also the color change led strip lighting to add underneath for nighttime use. In house vac. New batteries. Sumo springs and chf. Hose adaptor and 20 ft hose for propane grill. Shade extension on order - I think that's it for now haha - oh we also added a screen door bar as I've pulled the plastic thing several times trying to catch the door. And we've added several flamingos and a lighted palm tree to the stock of needed items. and a bike rack to the rear ladder. It's too many photos to post all of it

I also use the iOttie. Bounces like crazy, but stats attached. Waze is great.

We purchased from a local dealer/installer - he was wiring up the extra cameras and sensors for us so had him do all of the speakers as well - but here is the unit we installed and an up close of it on our coach Click image for larger version

ID:	118193 this was installed with the bigger JL audio speakers and an amp - all was mounted and wired just under the tv housing where there is open space - all marine grade so water and impact resistant Click image for larger version

I can have hubby take pics of wiring if you like (I'm clueless there) but speakers run to the main unit inside and can be used for movies/stereo etc like the originals they or can be switched for use by phone or other Bluetooth device using the BT receiver. We added a switch to dash so the speakers outside can play music from our devices and the inside can watch a movie or listen to diff music as well at the same time

Pleased with result but not for the faint of heart.
