Default Mobile device mounting?

First time poster, go easy on me here But a long time reader of the forum.

I have a question that I have not been able to answer using search features, either on this website or Google. If you have wifi setup on your boat so you can view your fishfinder/GPS on a mobile device, is there a way you can mount the device (e.g. iPad or otherwise)?

A little bit of background: I am considering pulling the trigger on a Key West 210 BR, and I am going to install either a Lowrance HDS-9 or 12 Gen2 Touch in the console. But I would like to be able to see my fishfinder display from the bow of my boat. Is it better to bite the bullet and install the extra Lowrance display at the bow, or go the WiFi route? I just don't want to be holding my Iphone/Ipad in my hand while I'm trying to fish.

What is the best way to do this? Any input is appreciated.

Ram mounts. They will have exactly what you need. I Bluetooth my phone's (note 3) playlists through my stereo and got one of their mounts that I connected to my tee top bar on the side and it holds my phone right behind my windshield and it does not move, no matter how rough it gets. High quality and very well made.

X1. When I first bought my boat I hated the GPS that was on it. I used a Ram mount to mount my tablet and used the Navionics app until I got a better GPS. The Ram mounts are great in any sea condition and there are a ton of options. I know we carry over 700 ram mount products. The options are endless!
