    has anyone suction cupped an iPad holder on the back of the model X plastic backs. I don't want to ruin it and leave a grease mark from the suction cup. Thanks.

    My GF complained to me that the X didn't have an entertainment package for the kids (i wouldn't want one) Good idea for the suction cups with an Ipad...

    Instead of these that are for forward facing people in the back seats, are there any products for rear facing babies and toddlers?

    I would think something like the magnet iPhone holders would work. I've seen iPads done in the front cabin just not yet on the seat backs.

    For front facing, do magnets work on front seat back? For rear facing, I don't think magnets work on rear seat back...

    The
    attachment would use heavy duty 3m tape on the seat back and the other piece attached to the device. For rear facing, I've screen iPad holders that slip over the head rest.

    Hi, @LuckyX , thanks for your help. I'm a bit worried that if I use adhesives on the (fake) leather, it might damage leather... Also what kind of "holders that slip over the headrest" are you using? Trying to find one in vain.

    Google gogear automotive headrest iPad holder. If I could figure how to link from my phone I'd do it but i can't figure it out. Lol. We have something like this that we tweaked with added Velcro straps.

    Adhesive is for the shiny seat back portion for front facing.

    You could add some Velcro horizontally on top and bottom to secure the iPad better.

    I tried this product on the seat back for rear-facing car seat.
    iOttie One Touch Easy Flex 3 Car Mount For Smartphones - Black
    The suction cup didn't stick to perforated leather seat... :) it also was too big to stick to Maxi Cosi 2wayFix Base. I'm still waiting for @LuckyX 's iPad holder to arrive from the U.S. I also have this for monitoring sleeping baby in a bassinet:
    Flexible Smartphone Tripod | GripTight GorillaPod Magnetic
    And this also could be used as I can bend GorillaPod's legs and somehow fix to 2wayFix Base or the handle of my car seat...
