    No HDMI yet, but I'm thinking about it.

    It's easy, but there is a provided cover to protect the sticky part from getting contaminated. No residues.on the tablet, but you cant forget the cover. I like it a lot because it looks very minimalistic and you can keep any hard cover - docks generally requires you to remove them first or the tablet wont fit and ThAT is.much more.of a hassle.

    Yeah im definitely looking in to this. I just need to decide where I am going to steal audio from. Go the HDMI converter route or do this. http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...t=1#largeimage

    Thanks for the research and pictures Hurst!

    In-Car Navigation is very expensive and with the constant improvements being made to Google Maps with Navigation, spending $1000 or more on OEM solution is making less sense every 3-6 months.

    Many cars are coming with Bluetooth included. I am sure one of two/three things will happen to me in the next 10-24 months:

    That is -

    Getting a older car and putting in a nicely optioned aftermarket HU with Bluetooth and using a 4.3"-7" Tablet for Multimedia and Navigation. Or a New sub Compact with OEM Bluetooth. In either case I will add my 8" Amplified SAS Tube to the mix, which will add some sorely needed bass, yet is easily removable, especially important for hatchbacks.

    The tablet I am targeting since I don't qualify for a phone upgrade until May 2012, but want to experience the internet like I do at home or on my laptop; Is the Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 (US Version). Not too big, not too small either, easily visible from the driver's or pass seat. Its also affordable ($269).

    Two problems I see that might be solved soon are -

    Sirius Radio App doesn't work on the player and I'm not sure I can tether it to my feature phone (Pantech Link) for internet.

    We'll see as I continue following its development, it was just released Oct. 16th.
