Mine sits on the back seat most of the time.

For a little while I mounted in on a the cabin cover support bar above the glareshield. It was on a short adapter that positioned it just above the intercom.

In my case, it's a third backup for maps and charts. As such, I almost never use it in the air.

This is an old picture;  th e 696 in the center was replaced by a mini some time ago.
 
When the 696 was there, I used the mount you see on the left side wall for the mini.  That ball is still there and I could just as easily use it but I never do.  It’s much handier in the center, especially when I fly with someone else who wants to use it.  
The center mount is a combo of a 6” arm and a 2” arm. It has a knuckle between them called a ball adapter. The iPad mounts in an X-Naut tray that has cooling fans, which is a necessity.

I've got a kneeboard holder for my iPad mini, and can't imagine it anywhere else. Especially since I sometimes use it to jot down notes within Foreflight, or even as a hard back for writing notes on paper if I have to. And even with 3 EFIS screens in the cockpit, I've come to rely on it being there.

Before the panel upgrade I mounted mine to the lower left of the windshield using a suction mount and the mygoflight suction mount:

http://mgfproducts.com/sport-mount-flex-suction/

The flex arm is very well made, locks in position with a single twist lock. Super solid for 100hr or so of flying.

After the upgrade (3 screen G3X) I'm not sure I'll mount it or use it, I suspect it will be relegated to the back seat / flight bag as a backup.

Thanks
Will take a look
Being right handed it is
Inconvenient to have it on the left side

My reason for using a mini instead of a full size is that I can just lay it on my lap. When I want to look at it, I pick it up and hold it close to my line of sight to the EFIS. When vfr I usually just lay it on the center tunnel.
