    I have used mine this way with no problems.
    But I prefer to use an iPod or the iPhone because of their size.

    hello, i am from st. charles. i have not actually got an ipad yet, just trying to make sure it will work for what i want it to.

    to mrpunch, so you basically can use the ipad as an oversized ipod and use the usb as an output? ive seen a lot of setups where the ipad actually replaces the radio, but i want to use it as a source to send to my current radio, rather then using just the ipad. thanks for your response

    My car has an ipod connector, the ipad works for playing music however it pops up an error about not being able to charge.

    Note to Sonny Burnett

    Thank you!! That YouTube posting was priceless. I work for a company that is considering equipping our trucks with 3G ipads and this is a perfect safety video to add to the training sessions!

    Wait...this isn't a real accessory?

    Welcome STLunatic. I'm pretty sure that other video was a joke, but there are plenty of kits, and some have engine diagnostic info inside.
