Just to be clear are you attaching the case right to the Yamaha cover plate on the pull down cover. I have a tab a 8 coming with a otter box defender case. From the pictures it looks awesome

Yes. Check out post #3 in this thread. You can see where I drilled my holes in the Yamaha filler plate. Actually a nice bonus because that Yamaha plate is only $5 to replace if you ever need to put it back to stock to sell it or something.

yes, drill holes through the case. then I used 4 0.25" spacers and machine screws with nylock nuts to bolt to the Yamaha block-off plate. I have a 90 degree USB-C cable coming that will get wired up into switched 12v power.

I really like your guys layout with the tablet mounted to the plate.

I went a different route though. I replaced the plastic plate with an aluminum one and mounted 2 balls on the plate.

Can hold my phone and tablet. I have several different length RAM arms for motorcycle and kayak us. So lots of options of positioning the devices for the driver or passenger.

I covered the aluminum plate with some carbon fiber wrap and a little batman reflective decal to finish things off. Lol.

And my OCD had a real battle between lining up the seams on the ball or lining the screw holes up. The balls won out.

got our tablet holder and tablet case in finally. I ended up having to remove the velcro hand strap on the backside of the case for it clamp down.

Mine is the cell model even though I only use it on wifi. I got a good deal on the Sprint one. Even though we don't even have sprint out by me. lol. It is fully functional on wifi though. Just pops a notification symbol in the status bar telling me it's not active every so often.

I have done the same setup as you (A7 lite otterbox defender) but I'll be damned if I can find a right angle cable that's small enough for the space and big enough for the Otterbox case. Any chance you could share the one you found that works?

I bought this one from Amazon and it fits perfect. Look at post #70 in this thread. I have some good pics of them.
