    OK, here it is! My new iPad car mount. It's called my steering wheel. Works great! (Not recommended while driving, of course.)

    I am using the factory case. I fold it back, and it hangs over the steering wheel and just sits there in front of me when I'm parked.

    Works fine!

    Yes, of course. You're describing the handy "Presentation and Display Profile" that this marvelous new accessory offers --- at no additional charge! ;)

    This looks like a Back Seat model of the one about 3 posts up, entitled "I just ordered my car mount". It's the same holder with a different thing to attach it to. It comes as 2 seperate parts. The base is about $29 & the mount is another price that I don't remember. Seems the total is about $70. For dash mounting, it is make & model specific and doesn't require dismantling the dash.

    That one is made by ProClip USA (proclipusa add a dot com as I am a new poster and can't add images or links) That unit is more expensive than most but it is my understanding it is also crash tested to FMVSS safety standards for rear and front impact to keep your children safe from flying tablets! When you look at the site, the one that is crash tested actually has a locking mechanism and an optional pass through connector.

    Just the fact that they built this so well to spend the money on crash testing justifies the higher cost in my mind. When it comes to the safety of my children I won't settle for a cheap Chinese made device when I can get a better quality device.

    Given my love for finding new ways to use existing stuff, I'm sure I'll find a way to take the smartcover fridge trick and apply it to my car.

    The proclipusa site does have a cool set for a decent price. May have to try that one!
