I see that the Tab A7 lite is 6 mm larger overall compared to the 2018 Tab A. Meaning the Defender case will also be larger. What is the chances there is enough room for the slightly larger version. I really like the way it looks in the first post so would like to replicate that.
My defender case is on the way, I'll snap some pics when it comes

I think that there would be enough room but that would make getting a 90° charging cable in there even more difficult. I wanted a newer version of the tablet as well but I knew the 2018 would fit and for what I was using it for I figured it really didn't matter when it came down to it. I didn't get it for surfing the net or anything else. Just music and GPS.
Another option is to put a wireless charging pad in the back of the case and add one to the mount.

I'm anxious to see your pictures. I think it will work. My tablet (2019 Samsung Tab A 8") with case is 220mm. There is some room to spare. I use this cradle:

I have enough room to slide this open to insert my tablet. I'm fairly certain the new A7 lite should work.

Thanks for your input. I have the case coming tomorrow and will see how it goes.

So is the 2018 version the best choice ? Definitely doing this but making sure I buy the right Samsung tab. I used Avenza app on my iPhone and loved it so I think it will be awesome on a tablet .

The Android version of Avenza is a little different then the IOS version it doesn’t have the navigation arrow so it can take a little longer to figure your direction.

I don't think you'd regret the 2018. Especially for what you'll be doing with it. I love mine so far.

I got these from amazon. 1 foot long 90° Micro USB cables. They work perfect for being able to charge the tablet while in the cradle. They were only $8.99 for a 3 pack. I was worried that with the Otterbox thickness they may not make contact but nope. They are just right.

Those look perfect for your application. Snug fit, hidden from water/dust.

Oh ya. I know most didn't put a set of USB ports where I did but they do make these cables in different lengths. Some people as was I were curious if a USB cable could fit in the space available after mounting the Otterbox. Answer is yes.😊👍👍👍

I put my port in the same place as yours. Travelling across Newfoundland last week in pouring rain and going thru water holes with water pouring over the roof. That area is as dry as it gets inside the cab.

Here is my dual tablet setup that I run. I used the stock tablet for engine monitoring and use an iPad mini mounted center over the steering wheel as pictured. iPad mini is set up with cell service as well.




It works great so far. Ran some trails last night with it and it was amazing to have.

Here is mount I used

Hell ya, lookin' good guys. Great Tablet mods! It's really one of the coolest and simplest mods with huge benefits to do. Not to mention affordable. Especially if you own a standard model or SE in Canada that don't have the Adventure Pro.
