    7" 2.2 Chinese tablet

    How many people use their tablets in the car?

    Just curious how many people use tablets in the car, not using them for navigation or entertainment.What other app's do you use.
    lf so how do you mount them. Have seen windscreen mounts but don't really like that idea, due to twin air-bags.

    I use mine in the car quite a bit. Reading, while parked in a mall or supermarket parking lot waiting for someone to finish shopping. (It's made me a much more patient person.)

    Yes but I am yet to find a decent mount, I am hoping Ram come up with one that suits my A500, also waiting for some decent mapping programs but that is another story, I have a Ram unit for my Magellan Explorist GPS and it is super strong and worth every penny of the million or so I paid for it. :-)

    We used mine to play music from my iTunes library while running Nav, to find shops, and my wife played Angry Birds. Once I install AutoNet in our car the tablet will be even more useful.

    I use ZP Dashboard. In HUD it gives me a fantastic display on my windshield offering me all sorts of information, or merely my speed. I also use Google Navigation with a British voice downloaded.

    7" 2.2 Chinese tablet
    Very happy, have discovered the car charger for my Sat Nav that I rarely use has the same rating and plug as my Tablet.
    Just need to sort out a decent mount that I can swap between cars that does not stick on the windscreen.
    Problem is one car has no centre console and the other has the stereo system, turbo timer, and heater/aircon switches.

    Just ordered one of the "cheaper" mounts to do a bit of a test, bit worried it will not take the weight when bouncing in 4WD driving though but in those situations it can just sit on the passengers lap anyway as they should be giving directions.

    Also have bought OziExplorer for my A500, brilliant mapping/GPS tool. On a 10 inch screen it is amazing.
