iPad as a Carputer

Newer Older

iPad's connector is identical to the iPhone's, so iPad works fine (except it doesn't charge when iPad is running due to the higher current requirement). It means that I can control iPad using the steering wheel buttons.

I'm using MacBook Pro for a carputer with a touch screen, but it can be replaced with iPad which consumes a lot less energy and is a lot cheaper. All I need is an iPad mount on the dashboard.
