DIY iPad Car Mount - under 50 cents if you have iPad case

Hi everyone,
I am new here and I would like to share the solution i make which i posted on youtube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3kRdYG9IXo

This is my car mount solution and the video shows you how I managed to use a string to hold the iPad on my car dashboard. This solution should be able to be applied to most cars unless your car has special designed dashboard. It holds the iPad very firm and allows you to remove the iPad easily.

Any suggestion to improve and comments are welcome.

Interesting. For others interested in the actual details of the solution, skip to about the 3 minute mark....

This will work great in the summer when you want to turn on the A/C and just sit back and relax.

Oh wait...

By the way, what have you done that's so great? Do you create anything, or just criticize others work and belittle their motivations?

It could always double as a really tiny washing line for those times when you absolutely must have a that small item of clothing dry before reaching your destination.

I tried this in my car but it blocked the GPS screen. Any other ideas?

Thanks. I thought this was a video on how well the iPad worked in a car.
