    Using Tipstir customized HoneyComb 2.1 ROM.

    Car charger that I bought off ebay, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWNX:IT. I confirmed with the seller that they use 2A so they don't ruin the batteries. Seem to work very well, the spring cord is kind of short but I stretch them to reach the COBY's.

    Links to the car head rest mounts, are. http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2. I had to modify them to work upside down since my wife's SUV is a Toyota Sequoia. In the user comments section on monoprice web site it explains what needs to be done to flip them. I also sawed off the ends of the clamps to make them shorter, very easy to do with saw. With the cut off ends I use strong double sided adhesives and taped them to the bottom of the mount to give support to the COBY. See pictures. I did not drill a hole like or create the L bracket like the user comment at monoprice, just used the cut off end. The same one goes for double the price on amazon, http://www.amazon.com/DVD-Mount-for-...5346540&sr=8-2. As you can see, it gets very good reviews at both sites. Let me know if you have any questions.

    My 3 daughters are loving their new toys, also with wifi hotspot turned on on my phone gives them internet capability on long trips.

    Very cool setup! If they go any cheaper on clearance (say around $100), I might have to mimic it for those long summer car rides with the family! Thanks for the great idea.

    Do you have the fifth mounted on the dash or use clamp on the windshield so you can listen to music.
