I see the point of the graphs and stuff, but the iPad mini would work better for this purpose.

It wouldn't really matter. But they should've of flipped it the other way so the home button was closer to the driver instead of it being on the other side. Probably harder to press when driving.

I think someone here put a Nexus 7 in theirs. Should be in the build threads or DIY area...

I checked probably a month ago and didn't see it. Glad to see it's back. I was worried I'd have to get another android phone.

All I want is to be able to send my google maps app to the screen on the bespoke. No other functionality video wise, just the damn map on the screen. I would gladly pay big $$ for that app instead of the free scion bespoke app (aka the worst navigation app possible or imaginable).

Let's tweet!

Now that I have got that off my chest, I agree the iPad is a bit large for this use. A Nexus 7 would be way cheaper and better, or an iPad mini would at least be more appropriately sized.

What are the legal risks to a manufacturer making an exact double din sized tablet? I swear this market is being avoided for some reason.. The note is pretty close, but id love a car specific solution.
