    Very cool. With a 3G version you would get turn by turn navigation and built in internet access. I really want to see a portable solution for rental cars when on travel but this looks awesome!

    Your a beast!!!! That is really awesome. I take it the audio is blue tooth delivered to the head unit in your system?

    I'm thinking of doing the same for my Expedition.

    The word "Epic" comes to mind… :D

    Talk about the ultimate in-car entertainment/utility.

    Ok, gotta say it once more - that's epic man :)

    I think one valid portable solution may be based on the RAM Mount that fastens to the bottom of the passenger seat chair rail. I have used RAM mounts for years but I would never trust a $900 3G to one of their suction cup mounts. I have had them break loose on bumps or with heating of the window or dash to extreme temperatures.

    I like the idea of the iPad being positioned below the window level so the screen probably would be more readable and the fact it is held ruggedly in place until you un-clip it.

    I am waiting for someone else to buy that solution and report on how it fared. RAM isn't cheap but it is good stuff.

    The police and military also use RAM. I used it to mount HAM radios.

    Nicely done. I like the way it can quickly be mounted. A method for the 30pin connection would dominate the trucking and other travel related industries.
