So you would have to buy a router that can use USB air cards and connect that way. So thats yet another expense if you hate tethering like I do.
    Umm...couldn't you just buy the iPad 3G and use that? It comes with both the 3G card and a GPS.

    JR, could you explain your PSU. I'm not sure why you had to make this for the car. You can use a regular iphone cable and a USB charge port connected via cigarette lighter. In my install I ran a Cigarette port inside the dash with a belkin USB charger in it.

    It's basically a cigarette style usb port sans the cigarette lighter. I'll be hiding everything inside the dash. So instead of having 2 wires (+V and GND) go to your cigarette lighter, it goes to the green connector. Then it's the same USB out.

    It's really not that fancy. 5V voltage regulator + female usb port + 22k ohm resistor + 3x 33k ohm resistors + 2x 10uF capacitors. Select the input method you want (I like euro style connectors, as they're just screws instead of crimps) and boom, you're done.

    Looking at your pics, I can't actually see where your cigarette-usb thingy is. Hidden as well? Super clean in your shots.

    Thanks. Yes the USB charge port is tucked inside the dash. I hardwired an "aux power power port" and ran the USB line to that and then the RCA's to the pac adapter to the back of the stereo for audio.

    here's the USB adapter I used.

    769K+ iPads sold so far. Here's the stats.

    20% of all US iPads are in CA (Guess I'll have to buy one then...LOL), 1 of every 320 person has an iPad, NY and Texas far behind. OTOH, if you have an iPad in Wyoming, chances are you'll never met anybody else using one.

    I was specifying for the iPad thats out now. But yes, when that one is out that will kill that issue. It might be cheaper though to go my route with having it seperate. Isnt the 3G version like $600.00?

    LOL, Miami isnt anywhere on the list. Although I can see why, most people I talk to say I dont need an iPad, I have a iPhone already. So it doesnt look like Miamians care about the large screen.

    I had a blonde moment, I didnt even see the word state, lol. When I saw NY, I thought the city and went from there.
