Dash mounting accessories and electronics

I may be using all the wrong search words but I can't seem to find any info on creative ways to mount accessories on the curved dash of the 2018 38C. Sticky pads are OK for the small stuff but I want to add the dash cam, iPad pro 12" and a few other things.

Any ideas?

I didn't find much either. I googled it and found this idea.
One thing that helps is using quotation marks when searching the forum.

Ok who did it?

I canít imagine how you got a picture of my windshield!

Thanks for the tip it still nada. The dash has a big slope away from the driver and is padded. I may have to build some kind of platform or such.

hahaha, great pic. My dash cam is on a suction mount to the glass between rear view and windshield, out of the way. I would seriously recommend NOT having a 12 inch tablet within view or use, it is a serious distraction. I speak from experience of having a laptop mounted in my police car. Not only is it a view obstruction, but I nearly crashed more than once because of it before I got smart and kept the screen closed most of the time driving. Can't afford to be distracted driving ANY vehicle must less a rig.

I mounted my TPMS on the side window with the suction mount. I mounted my break controller on the driver panel to the left of the seat near the LBCU control switch and I mounted my IPhone on the right dash with one of Nite Ize mount. Google it, they have lots of options. Amazon, of course

I am guessing that pic is a gag. And I hope they would get a well deserved ticket if it wasn't!

Yes, it's a gag. Found the pic on the inter web. Here is a link to the Nite Ize mounts.
