iPad as a Carputer

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.
