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

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.

Just out of curiosity how many people here drive Subarus? I would think that they would be developing mounting kits for more common cars like Toyota Camary's.
