    So this guy figure it out an iPad mount for his Subaru STi and apparently is developing mounts based on OEM specs. Pretty cool. Fit with OEM panels look impressive!

    Presample here:

    I believe they only have the Impreza STI available, but they are accepting requests for others. Looks interesting, but I have an OEM NAV screen and I can't figure it out where I would put it.

    Link with video with more info.

    The problem with this setup is that you cannot use the ipad in landscape mode, my preferred configuration. This is a nice idea but many cars/trucks would be difficult to retrofit with such a device.

    I have tried four different mount setups in my 09 Accord. My last try was with the Proclip mount. I had to DIY the mount to give me the proper angle to eliminate glare from the back or front window. It is not perfect but it took a lot of trial and error to get it right.

    The ipad is a killer device in a car. Particularly if you have 3G access and the GPS.

    I agree. I want my install to be able to tilt and swivel.

    I just tried to help showing a way (among others) to do it properly. I've seen a lot of bad installs already (""death pads"), velcro, bungee cords, it's giving iPad owners a bad name. Yes, can be a KILLER device in a car, but in more than one way! ;)
