Unless you remain in a pre-2007 world before iPhone exploded across the globe, you likely own a smartphone, tablet, or both. Among pilots, iPads in the cockpit are common. Since you are a pilot you may wish to use one of these versatile devices to assist your flying. All by itself that's great and they have lowered costs for pilots of all budgets. However, how do you handle the device in the cockpit while flying? ...physically handle it, that is. Yoke mounts are clumsy and clunky and you must cope with a tangle of cables. Guardian offers a much better choice.
Snap In / Snap Out — After making a brand with carbon monoxide detectors, Guardian expanded to a new iFDR series of connected cockpit solutions, including the iFDR Panel Mount docks for iPad and iPhone combined with the iFDR Power 250 series of aviation USB power supplies and panel ports. In other words, Guardian has all you need to make great use of your devices in the cockpit as though they were designed in from the start.
Keeping it Cool — As iPads and iPhones are being used, these devices generate heat that could result in a too-hot shut-down when you need it most! Some pilots have found this out the hard way when using a temporary mounting solution like Velcro to attach their unit to the instrument panel. The iFDR Panel Mount was designed with cooling in mind. Each mount has a 5/8-inch tapered hose / tube port built-in, allowing you to attach it to a standard avionics cooling fan. Each panel mounting tray features built-in cooling channels to circulate air behind your iPad to keep it cool even under the heaviest of use.
Protection in Any Aircraft Type — Guardian Avionics has been the leader in aviation Carbon Monoxide (CO) detectors for both certified and experimental and homebuilt General Aviation airplanes since 2000. The company's panel-mounted or remote-mounted CO detectors are known for their reliability and accuracy as well as their ability to connect and report to avionics by Garmin, MGL, Grand Rapids, and more.
A final thought: While aircraft are the focus of ByDanJohnson.com, you can also use Guardian mounts in cars, your boat, RV, or use it to build an iPad customer display. Check out Guardian and watch our video with boss Ash Vij.
