I added this mount so that when we are traveling my wife can either set the Netbook in her lap or put it on the mount. I also wanted it there so that when I camp I can use it as movie player. I also moved my power converter from the glove box to the center console near the floor, just a better location and more convenient. I know some of you are going to express your concerns about computing and driving.....don't worry I do not plan on using it while I drive.

I got the idea from this thread...

When not in use I can just bend the rod down out of the way or remove it from the mount.

These guys sell it

http://www.mountguys.com/product_p/sf240-netbook.htm

It was originally made for dvd players...but since those have kind of died out they now sell it for netbooks. The platform has a spring loaded base to keep the dvd player from skiping but it made the netbook move to much so I took the base apart and got rid of the springs. Now it is much more secure when using. It come with the mount that I used our you can mount it to the seat bolts. The main seat bolt had to big of a diameter for the mount and I did not want to use any of the secondary bolt so I just mounted it to the fron of the center console. It is nice and secure, I ran three bolts with nuts all the way thu to the inside of the storage area under the cup holders.

How is it attached to the floor?
It comes with 2 mounts. One attaches to the seat bolt and the other has three holes that can be attached anywhere. I mounted that one to the from of the center console with bolts that go through to the inside of the cup holder.
