I've been looking over mount system after mount system and to be honest not many of them provide you with detailed info, materials list or a video to show you how the mount performs specifically on the road!
I've got the Motorola Xoom (original) and finally have a useful purpose for it. I want to mount it into my vehicle to use an app to log my mileage, simple. However, I've got a 1997 F-150 which does not have a lot of dash room, so a tablet this size would cause me to have one heck of a blind spot right in the center of my view.
Here is a picture of the exact same style dashboard I have in my truck (Warning, this is not my truck picture)

One of them I saw was this mount, but this would probably have to be mounted right above the radio, right in the center of my view.
All other Xoom compatible mounts from the Mount Guys.
The problem is that its going to be winter soon and that means -50 weather and I'm not sure if a suction cup mount will withstand those temps. Then again the suction cup looks to be the kind you actually pull a lever to make it suction on, which have WAY more holding power from what I've noticed. At the same time, those suction cup style mounts don't seem to be offered with the slight swivel arm mounts, which could be put on the passenger side facing towards me...
I just don't know the best way to go while staying fairly inexpensive. 60 maybe 80 bucks total is all I'm looking to spend. Any advice for someone with a truck like that that's not quite laid out easily for modern technology?
