    Laptop in Car - ADVICE REQUEST

    I need to use my laptop in car for GPS.

    what is the best way to keep the laptop in a car?

    I don't want to buy an expensive mount nor drill holes for a mount. But if I juts keep it on the front seat, it has few drawbacks:

    Laptop gets HOT quicky

    Takes up space on front seat - or if a passenger is sitting, he would have to hol it

    I have to turn my head to the right and down to look

    Any suggestions?

    Moved to General Hardware, since this has nothing to do w/ GPS...

    And most people use a seperate screen that's closer to your line of sight while driving and keep the laptop somewhere else, like under a seat or in the trunk.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    um, this website is pretty much dedicated to carputer setups and custom installs. noone here really uses a laptop itself but instead with a touchscreen and a bunch of input devices.

    Try using the superlock fastener strips sold at Radio Shack. They work like velcro, but are very strong. That is how I mounted a laptop in my '96 Buick Regal.
