The smartPanel Mount Package for Apple Apple iPhone 6, 6S, 7, and 8 is a flush mounting system to easily dock and seamlessly integrate your existing Apple iPhone 6, 6S, 7, and 8 into your aircraft instrument panel, giving it a clean, professional appearance in an easy to view position! Once installed, the smartPanel mount allows your iPhone to be docked in seconds, fully powered and ready for use, and able to be removed in seconds when done!
This package gives you the mount along with a panel mounted single 2.7 amp USB-A port that also features a hard-wired 2.7 amp connection from the rear to power the iPhone mount! This way you can provide power to an external component like a phone or GPS/ADS-B receiver while keeping your iPhone charged! Choose from a Single USB Round Faceplate or Single USB Square Faceplate.
The package also includes the Lightning cable to power the iPhone, a 3.5 mm audio cable with an open-wiring termination to hard wire to an audio panel as well as the 15-pin D-Sub connector to solder power in/out and a D-Sub cable shield.
If you were to buy all the components in this package on their own, you would spend $449 — at $349, this money-saving package includes everything you will need to install and integrate the iPhone 6, 6S, 7, and 8 with your aircraft – panel mount, 2.7 amp power supply with a panel USB-A port, and power and audio cables included.
The smartPanel Mount allows you to transform your new or existing panel and use the smaller iPhone 6/7/8 line in the cockpit, fully integrated with your instrument panel. Your navigation and communication information is easily accessible with the many popular iOS aviation apps available.

Designed for General Aviation in mind.
The smartPanel Mount for iPhone 6, 6S, 7, and 8 was designed by aerospace engineers to perform in the unique environment of the cockpit. The spring actuated mounting cradle securely holds the iPad in place during the roughest of turbulence. The clean, flush mount has a shallow chassis allowing it to be easily installed in even the smallest of instrument panels. Built-in ports for the included Apple Lightning cable and 3.5mm audio cable in the package will keep cables safely and securely positioned behind the panel, allowing you the ability to connect to power, data, and audio without the cord mess.
Packaged with smartPower 250-101 Power Supply
The smartPanel Mount Package for iPad Pro 12.9-in includes the smartPower 250-101 Dual 2.7 amp Power Supply to provide power to the mount and your iPhone 6, 6S, 7, and 8 along with a USB-A port in the panel! The smartPower 250-101 converts all aircraft voltages from 9 to 48 volts (including common 12, 14, and 24 volt systems) and transforms it to 5 VDC at 2.7 amps (12 watt) to keep your iPhone 6, 6S, 7, and 8 powered and charging through all phases of flight as well as another product via the panel port.
Keep it cool.
As they are being used, iPhones generate heat that can affect performance, resulting in a high-temperature shut down when you might need it most! Pilots have found this out the hard way when using a temporary mounting solution like Velcro to attach their unit to the instrument panel. The smartPanel Mount was designed with cooling in mind. Each mount has a 5/8-in tapered hose / tube port built-in, allowing you to attach it to a standard avionics cooling fan. Each panel mounting tray features cooling channels to circulate air behind your iPhone to keep it cool even under the heaviest of use.
The smartPanel Mount is designed for easy installation in your panel. Each durable molded ABS plastic unit is self-contained and mounts with only four screws. Our installation drawings give you the exact panel cutout details and screw positions in either PDF or AutoCAD DXF for precise cuts. The smartPanel Mount for iPhone 6, 6S, 7, and 8 requires a 5.477″ long and 3.025″ high panel cutout and can be mounted either horizontally or vertically.
Mount in Automobiles, Boats, RVs, and Displays too!
Though the smartPanel Mount Package for iPhone 6, 6S, 7, and 8 was designed for use in aircraft, the durable construction and well-designed flush mount can be used easily for a wide variety of applications — wherever there is a flat surface!
