Brodit's holder with external antenna connection provides a considerably better and more reliable mobile coverage. Works both in rural as in urban areas, in vehicles and in buildings.

Attach an external antenna onto your vehicle or in your window and connect it to the antenna cable attached to the holder (external antenna is not included). The external antenna will pick up on even the faintest signal, too weak to be recognized by your iPad. The signal is then transmitted wirelessly to your iPad via the built-in inductive antenna. It can take a while for your iPad to find the signal after placing it in the holder (maximum 1 minute). You can connect e.g. a charging cable to the iPad when it is in the holder.

The holder is mounted onto a tilt swivel so you can adjust the angle and switch between portrait and landscape mode.

Tablets should not be installed onto a carís dashboard if they block the view or block key controls. The ProClip is designed for installation of smaller devices (phones), not for large devices (tablets). If you want to place a tablet onto the carís dashboard, each combination of tablet-car must be examined in detail by you in order to determine if such an installation is possible in the specific case. Consideration should be given to the position and how firmly the ProClip is in place, as well as the size of the tablet you wish to use. Brodit will not give any recommendations for such installations.

An installation of a tablet onto a vehicleís dashboard is always done on the customerís own responsibility. Brodit recommends to use tablets on the carís headrest, installed onto a Brodit headrest mount.

Installation Instructions

Please read all of the instructions and look at the pictures before attaching the holder.

1. Loosen the screw in the center of the holder so you can remove the tilt swivel attaching plate on the back.

2. Place the attaching plate onto the desired position. Screw the attaching plate into place with the enclosed screws. Place the holder over the attaching plate so the screw fits in the hole in the tilt swivel. Screw a few turns on the screw, just so the thread starts to pull. Pull the holder toward you and hold it slightly tensed, in the same time tighten the screw so the holder is pulled toward the tilt swivel. Tighten the screw until the holder is firmly in place, but still can be adjusted.

3. To place the device in the holder: Place the lower part of the device in the holder, then flip/press the upper part forwards so it snaps into place in the holder. To remove the device from the holder: Press upwards on the upper part of the holder, in the same time pull the upper part of the device out from the holder and then lift the device up and out from the holder.

4. The holder is in place.
