HOW TO: Mount a tablet computer in place of the Zamp controller

Recommended Posts


I mounted a Victron MPPT controller under the street side bed, so I had a really big hole to fill where the Zamp one used to be:


Super heavy duty vecro ... Velcro Professional Heavy Grade white



A 2.1 amp dual USB charger mounted inside, spliced into the stereo power wire with an inline fuse:


My old iPad Mini 2 will support a Split Screen (but only a Mini 4 or later will support Dual Screen, where both windows are active). My main purpose was to have an easy to view head height display for my VictronConnect App, which shows both the battery and the solar status. I can also send or receive text messages from my Garmin inReach, view map apps, or just about anything else. This unit has a cellular chip, so the gps works, but it does not have an active cellular account, so I need to be near wifi to get new new data. OTH I can download lots of maps for offline use for my Pocket Earth Pro and GAIA Pro nav apps. 


Even dimmed it would be way too bright at night, so it will get put to sleep.
