Phone, GPS and Tablet Mounts for a Service Van

A service van such as the one that is in the photo has some unique physical characteristics.  I suppose they’re all different but the ones I have been inside have a small hood and for reasons I still can’t figure out, the drivers always seem to following the guy in front of them too closely.  Maybe they were just messing with me, but I had to ask they make special accommodations to keep me from jumping out of the van.
