RAM Ball Sizes
I stock 2 sizes are RAM parts.  The A size parts use 9/16 inch (14.3 mm) diameter balls and the B size parts use 1 inch (25.4 mm) balls.  Be careful to select all A or B sized components when you order because A size balls will not fit in B size arm ends, etc.

Cradle Comparison
See the Cradle Comparison page for details on the advantages and disadvantages of the cradle options available from Cumulus Soaring, Inc..

More Mount Parts Available
RAM has a huge variety of mounting accessories for many GPSs and PDAs.  While I do have a sizeable inventory of RAM parts, I don't stock all of them.  But I can get any RAM part.  Just let me know what you need, and I'll get it for you.

Cable Solutions
Please see the wide variety of soaring data cable solutions available from :: Goddard ::

What Does the "U" in the part number mean?
The "U" at or near the end of the part number stands for "unpackaged". The parts are delivered in a simply plastic bag - rather than in more expensive plastic store display boxes. I stock and sell only the unpackaged (plastic bag packaged) parts because they are less expensive. Note that assembly part numbers do not end in "U", but they do contain parts that are provided in plastic bags rather than store display boxes.

Customer Feedback
"The RAM-HOL-GA14 fits the GPS-96C just fine, and two of the three ports on the back are available when the GPS is in the mount (the antenna port and the USB port).  However, the serial port (the round Garmin plug) is covered by the mount.  To access it without repeatedly flexing the mount to remove and reinstall the GPS, one would have to cut a section out of the back between the lower two mounting holes, right where it says 76C/76CS on the inside face of the mount.  Due to the odd orientation of the plug, the cutaway must be flared to the left as you look at the back of the mount to accommodate the cable which goes down and to the left as you look at the back of the GPS."
However, The owner of RAM sent me a response to the statement above, "I have a GA14 on my boat with the serial cable and it works fine." 
They must be using different serial cables...

RAM-HOL-PD2U Cradle, Universal PDA, Large
Plastic cradle for most any PDA (Pocket PC or Palm), or PNA (Personal Navigation Device).  Compatible with Compaq Aero 1500 series Pocket PCs, all iPAQs (1900, 2200, 3100, 3600, 3700, 3800, 3900, 5100, 5400, 5500) with any expansion pack or sleeve, Dell Axim (with or without the optional large battery, etc.  I haven't yet found a PDA that it won't hold.  The spring loaded sliding "3rd finger" extends to accommodate PDAs and PNAs from 2.875" (73 mm) to 4" (101.6 mm) wide.  It work great with the hp iPAQ 310, 312, 314, 316 or 318 series of PNAs and the BendixKing AV8OR PNA. It comes with 3 sets of 3 "fingers" so that it can hold devices of different depths.
Weight: 3.4 oz (96 g

Slippery Finger Tips?
I have used the PD2 cradle with a variety of PDA in my glider cockpit for many years.  The rubber tips on the fingers hold the PDA very securely. However, I just received a cradle and was setting it up for a customer and found that the finger tips were slippery and did not keep the PDA from sliding.  I talked to RAM about it and they said that sometimes the release agent used during the molding process causes this problem.  They suggested washing the fingers with a mild soap.  That seemed to work great for me.  If you receive fingers that don't seem to hold the PDA securely, try washing them.  If that doesn't work I will replace them.

Articulated Arms
RAM-A-101U Articulated Arm, Short, "A" Size
Articulated Aluminum Arm, Length: 3 1/8 inches (80 mm) from base plate to base plate, The arm is 1.75 inches (44 mm) from ball center to ball center, 2 Aluminum base plates with small 9/16" (14mm) balls, weight: 2.4 oz (68 g), Diamond shaped mounting plates are 1.25" (31.8 mm) x 2.5" (63.5 mm).  Mounting hardware not included.  This "A" sized mount is significantly smaller than the large "B" sized mounts below.  The base plates have the same footprint, but the arms are very different.  I recommend this "A" sized mount for light applications.  The "B" sized mounts are nice when a longer reach and more rugged arm is desired (most soaring applications). 

Warning!
Most people find that the "A" sized components work fine for holding a Pocket PC or small FLARM display in an aircraft or automobile.  However, I have received a significant number of complaints about the rubber balls detaching from the bases.  I therefore recommend the larger "B" sized arms for most soaring applications.  In fact, one customer temporarily lost control of his sailplane when his PDA cradle fell off the RAM A arm and jammed the control stick.  The issue is caused by clamping the arm down too tightly on the balls - causing them to deform and separate from the base. 
I have never heard of a RAM "B" size arm component failing.

RAP-105-6DDU Flex Arm, 6 inch
This is a very stiff flexible arm.  It is not are rugged as the GNeck2 Gooseneck.  The overall length from base to base is 7.75" (19.69 cm).  It consists of two plastic diamond shaped mounting plates and a metal (aluminum I think) rod with a plastic cover.  It is stiff enough for use holding a Pocket PC or GPS without any drooping under severe loads (loops, hard landings, etc.).  Since the rod is made of metal, it is not meant to be bent to extreme positions very many times.  Like any gooseneck it can be adjusted using one hand. If it is too long you can bend it into an S-shape for a minimum length of about 3.5" (89 mm), Weight: 1.6 oz (45 g)

Miscellaneous Parts
RAM-202PSAU Rubber Mounting Pad with VHB Adhesive, 2 7/16" Diameter
This is a thin rubber pad with strong adhesive on both sides.  It can be used to mount a RAM-B-202U or RAP-273U base.  One of these is included with the RAP-273U base.  It could also be cut down to a diamond shape and used with a RAM-B-238U or RAM-A-238U diamond base - but the smaller area of the diamond bases would reduce the holding force when compared with the round bases.  For best results: apply to a clean, dry surface.  Weight: 0.2 oz (6 g)

Warning: The adhesive is very strong - making it difficult to remove.

RAM-A-237U RAM A 9/16" Ball with Camera Thread
The RAM-A-237U, universal camera and camcorder base, consists of a 9/16" diameter rubber ball, connected to a 1/4"-20 camera thread. The male thread matches most standard camera and camcorder female threads found on the bottom of the camera.

Warning!
Most people find that the "A" sized components work fine for holding a Pocket PC in an aircraft or automobile.  However, I have received a significant number of complaints about the rubber balls detaching from the bases.  I therefore recommend the larger "B" sized arms for most soaring applications.  In fact, one customer temporarily lost control of his sailplane when his PDA cradle fell off the RAM A arm and jammed the control stick.  I have never heard of a RAM "B" size arm component failing.

RAP-105-6DDU Flex Arm, 6 inch
This is a very stiff flexible arm.  It is not as rugged as the GNeck gooseneck.  The overall length from base to base is 6.38" (162 mm).  It consists of two plastic diamond shaped mounting plates and a metal (aluminum I think) rod with a plastic cover.  It is stiff enough for use holding a Pocket PC or GPS without any drooping under severe loads (loops, hard landings, etc.).  Since the rod is made of metal, it is not meant to be bent to extreme positions very many times.  Like any gooseneck it can be adjusted using one hand. If it is too long you can bend it into an S-shape for a minimum length of about 3.5" (89 mm), Weight: 1.6 oz (45 g)

RAP-224-1U Suction Cup Base, Plastic, Locking
3.25 diameter suction cup base has a rotating locking mechanism that pulls a strong suction for secure adhesion to the mounting surface.  Compatible with any diamond-shaped mounting plate (RAM-A-238U, RAP-B-238U, RAM-B-238U, RAP-105-6DDU, etc.).  This mounting base has a smaller diameter than the RAM-B-224U rubber suction cup, but it is taller.  I prefer the RAM-B-224U rubber suction cup mount because it is easier to mount, won't damage your canopy, and is shorter. This mount is nice, however, if you already have a RAM-A-101U arm and want to temporarily mount it to a flat surface. Weight: 2.6 oz (74 g)
Note: I prefer the RAM-B-224 rubber suction cup mount to this suction cup mount because it is easier to mount, can't damage your canopy, and is less tall.
Note: The RAP-224-1U suction cup pulls a very strong suction so you may not want to use it on an expensive glider canopy.  If you decide to use it, I am not responsible for any damage to your canopy.  That said, I have used it on glider canopies safely using a trick.  Before you apply it to the canopy, turn the locking ring halfway through its rotation.  Then press it against the mounting surface and turn it the remaining distance to lock it in place.  If it doesn't mount securely enough, try only turning the locking ring 1/4 turn before you apply it to the mounting surface, etc.
Note: If you use suction cups to mount items to a club owned or syndicate owned glider canopy, please be considerate and clean the canopy when you are done flying.  If we don't do this simple step it is likely that the club will ban the use of suction cup mounts - which would be a shame.

RAP-273U Flexible Base with Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Pad, Plastic
The High Strength Composite Semi-Permanent Adhesive Mount Base consists of a 2.5" diameter flexible base with a standard RAM double hole diamond plate end. The base includes a RAM-202PSAU Semi-Permanent Adhesive Disk. The diamond plate end has two holes 1.912" from center to center. This will connect to the RAM-B-238U or RAP-B-238U Diamond Plates Series, to the universal industry standard AMPS hole pattern or directly to the back of the RAM HOL Cradles. This adhesive base DOES NOT have a RAM 1" rubber connection ball.  This could be used to mount any RAM arm that uses diamond bases to any flat or slightly curved surface.  For example it could be used to mount a RAM arm to the cockpit sidewall or instrument panel in a sailplane.  For best results: apply to a clean, dry surface.  Weight: 1.2 oz (34 g)

Warning: The adhesive is very strong - making it difficult to remove.

RAP-B-200-12U

Double Socket Swivel Arm for 1" Ball, Plastic - Recommended

Video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdaifBhvgOs

The swivel action is very nice.  There are times when a standard RAP-B-201U arm can't be positioned as desired because the "leg" attached to the ball can only go to one or the other side of the arm.  This swivel arm has a joint in the center that allows the 2 ends to be set to multiple positions.  Don't think that it is not strong because it is made of plastic - it is very rugged.  The arm has a socket at either end to allow a 1" diameter ball (size "B") accessories to be connected. A tightening screw on on each end of the arm enables the sockets to clamp firmly on a 1" diameter ball.  The assembly includes 2 RAP-B-200-1U arms attached to a RAP-280U "double octagon button". 

Length (center of socket to center of socket): 3.5 inches (89 mm)

The swivel and pivot action is very nice.  There are times when a standard RAM arm can't be positioned as desired because the "leg" attached to the ball can only go to one or the other side of the arm.  This swivel arm has a swivel/pivot joint in the center that allows the 2 ends to be set to multiple positions. 

The RAP-B-200-2U consists of double 1" diameter open ball sockets with a 360° rotation point at the center and a connecting swivel joint that rotates forward and back 180°. The rubber ball and socket at either end, and a central pivot point provides unsurpassed adjustability. The RAM ball sockets maximize ball coverage for optimal fit.

Don't think that it is not strong because it is made of plastic - it is very rugged.

RAP-B-201-1U

Double Socket Arm for 1" Ball, Plastic - Light-Duty

Video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wOqsvZyQnw

The RAP-B-201-1U, RAM light series double socket arm, has a socket at both ends that accommodates 1" ball bases. A single spring inside the arm opens the end sockets, allowing you to pivot the ball and socket connection. This socket technology allows for almost infinite adjustment and perfect viewing angles. A tightening screw on the side of the arm enables the sockets to clamp firmly on a 1" diameter ball. 

This arm much lighter, but much less rugged than the RAP-B-201U and RAP-B-201U-A arms, but is plenty strong for holding a PDA. It is probably not strong enough to hold a large navigation display - such as a ClearNav or LX9000.

Length (center of socket to center of socket): 2.0 inch (51 mm)

RAP-B-201U

Double Socket Arm for 1" Ball, Plastic - Recommended
Note: I recommend this arm for most applications that require 1" (B size) balls because it is a medium length, light weight due to its plastic construction, and inexpensive. 
Don't think that it is not strong because it is made of plastic - it is very rugged.  The arm has a socket at either end to allow a 1" diameter ball (size "B") accessories to be connected. A tightening screw on the side of the arm enables the sockets to clamp firmly on a 1" diameter ball.  When loosening the side screw, a single spring inside the arm opens the socket for maneuvering of the mount, or removing of the ball from the socket.

2 7/16" (62 mm) diameter plastic base plate with Male 1/4''-20 thread.  This is the similar to a RAP-B-202U with a Male 1/4''-20 thread.  The 1/4" thread could be used to hold a camera or GPS/logger such as a Cambridge GPS-NAV (but not a Volkslogger which has an M5 thread).  For that application you would also want a RAP-B-201U arm and a RAM-B-224U suction cup (for canopy mounting) or RAM-B-238U base (for instrument panel or cockpit sidewall mounting).

RAP-B-231U U-Bolt Mount, Plastic, For mounting a 1 inch "B" size ball to a 3/4" to 1" Diameter Rail
The plastic base has a 1.0 inch diameter Rubber Ball designed to sit at right angles to the rail. Fits a circular post or handlebar with diameter from 3/4 to 1 inches.  The entire assembly is completely rust proof.  This unit is very light when compared with the RAM-B-231U but since it is made of plastic it is obviously not as rugged.  I don't think I would trust it to support my expensive GPS on my bicycle.  I fear that the repetitive shocks would fatigue the unit and cause it to fail.  Weight: 0.7 oz (20 grams)

RAP-B-378U

RAM Round Plastic Base with 1" Ball and Adhesive
The RAP-B-378U consists of a 2.5" composite base that connects to a 1" ball, double-sided adhesive PSA stick pad and sealed alcohol prep pad. This base will attach to all RAM double socket arms that will accommodate 1" ball bases. The base is somewhat flexible so it can conform to slightly curved surfaces.

Note: A single RAM-202PSAU adhesive discs is included. You may want to order a few extras for future use.

Tip: To assure solid and reliable adhesion:

  • Clean the mounting surface and the base of the RAP-B-378U with the provided alcohol wipe immedialy before application
  • Remove the plastic from one side of the adhesive disc and apply it to the RAP-B-378U base.
  • Remove the plastic from the other side of the adhesive disc and press the base firmly onto the mounting surface for about 1 minute.
  • Wait 24 hours before mounting the arm and Oudie on the base. This allows the adhesive to setup.
