Because of the versatility of movement I was able to easily manoeuvre my tablet so that it was out of the way re gear stick and indicators but still able to be seen without squinting.
Presumably it is able to hold some manufacturers 7" tablets. Unfortunately it doesn't hold a Lenovo E8 8". Lengthwise the tablet is too long, and in width not wide enough. But as I like the product, and had no intention of faffing about, I simply used a piece of black foam as a workaround to fill the space; it fits fine now and is held firmly.
I give it five stars for build quality and versatility.
