granted, you still need to take your eyes off the road for a second to coordinate your finger to press the button, but it is larger, so it takes less concentration.
though it appears that there is a ipad compatible FE in the works-- check the bluehawk solutions thread in the main mac section.
oh, and i would recommend listening at least to gizmo-- he has run large screen tablet pc's mounted to his dash for possibly longer then he might want to admit, so if he voices concern over the bungee cord, you might want to try to consider other solutions..the last worry you need in a car is if your audio device will turn into a deadly flying object in a accident/hard stop/sharp turn...

more projects then time!
Led Skyline Tail Lights--100%
High Power Led Reverse Lights--100%
Led third brake light--100%
Led front turn signals--0%
Seems more like a way to show off your ipad than a way to get a computer in the car.
Although I do agree with jusjake. A black bungee cord would look better (specifically, less "ghetto"), especially when the cop-attracting iPad isn't in the car.
apple is just another bug splattered on my windshield (and not anywhere near my field of view).

Seriously? A bungee Cord? Does that even work when the car is not stationary? What happens when the vehicle hits a bump, does the iPad smack the dashboard?
I just don't understand the rationale behind spending $500 on an iPad and then $2 on the mounting system.
I really have to agree with blk02si, I don't see the rational in investing $500 on the ipad to then go cheap with the mount. I'm not trying to pile on here but I also would be concerned about a big bump or maybe even hard braking may bounce it up against the dash I think it would be a good idea to change your mind on this kind of miunting system.
