bought this arkon car mount for my ipad2(The case still fits the NEW iPad). thought is share some pictures. I use the iPad as my stereo but i also have a normal deck behind it for when i don't want to take the iPad with me. this was a custom job i did on my own. The same case i used in my room attached to my bed(controls my appletv and stereo). Might give some of you guys ideas its pretty awesome that the case still fits.

do you really need a huge-ass map while driving? :)
no offense - but your eyes should be on the road, not on the iPad

I can't think of any state in which this wouldn't be illegal even if not "staring at the screen"

having any front screen on besides navigation is already illegal. do i care? nope! Thats why factory and installed navigation/dvd players won't let you watch movies while the car is moving. But they make it super simple to bypass this. This is the step up from a normal nav screen ;)

Nice man I wish I could replace my built in nav with an iPad that would be sickkk!

pull it out and replace it with a standard deck and do what i did so you can take it out easy. some cars the dash kit is at a weird angle and wouldn't work though.
