Ever try to swivel your device into a different orientation while driving?  Not an easy task if using a RAM Mount.  Most RAM Mounts have a tightening knob on the side of the arm that does exactly what the mount is designed to do which is keep it steady and secure and the mounts do a very good job at that.  Adding the RAM Roto-View adapter plate to your existing RAM Mount configuration has solved this problem.  We like these adapters for the added functionality especially when using a RAM tablet cradle such as any of their Tab-Tite models.  No … Read more
