Depends on how u want it mounted .. Google ram mounts .. I had mine mounted in my f150 with some parts from home depot and a extra iPad case ... Try eBay or amazon if your looking for more of a pre fab vs DIY

I don't have an iPad, but ProClip makes some great car mounts for all kinds of devices. The mounts are custom designed for your device and vehicle. The best part is that you don't have to screw into your dash, but the finished product looks and feels like OEM. I have their iPhone mount, and it is by far the BEST mount I have ever used. Rock solid.

I prefer the InfiniApps Stand for use in my car. I also like to use it while running on the treadmill. It stays very secure when driving through rough conditions or running on the treadmill. I picked my up via ebay. InfiniApps Technology LLC - InfiniApp STAND

I went the good old jerry-rig setup when I was using my iPad 1 and the original Apple iPad 1 flip-case.
I took a number of those nice velcro straps/ties, two of them were each wrapped inside the air vents to the immediate left and right of my stereo. The remaining straps were then connected together tightly into a loop that the air vent straps then supported. I then hung the iPad 1 case-cover onto the loop.
Now that I have an iPad 3 I need to find the same type of case. I do have a smart cover, but the magnet portion doesn't have enough hold for it to properly hold the iPad on the loop.
Total cost of the "mount": maybe $6

I would suggest checking out The Joy Factory (Home | The Joy Factory). Their mounting products are on the expensive side, but keep this in mind:
1) Because being on the road can be quite bumpy, you need a sturdy mount that won't be rattling with every turn or speed bump. Additionally, you do not want the ball & socket to be spinning around like a Merry Go Round (something I had a bad experience with from buying a cheaper model). Although I haven't actually used The Joy Factory, the pictures and reviews from third parties seem to indicate great quality.
2) This thing will be something you use everyday. You don't want it to be an eye-sore. I haven't seen any mount that looks as good as this company's.
Just my two cents.

RAM POD I Universal Vehicle Mount with Tab-Tite
Plugged into it is a BadElf GPS receiver, since my iPad is wifi only and has no GPS of its own... and into that is a standard micro-usb cable, which goes into my usb car charger... and I've got an audio cable running from the iPad audio out port to my Vue radio's AUX input... plays iTunes while Navigon runs - it's a nice set-up. The mount can use an existing seat bolt, or - you can place a bolt wherever desired thru the car's floor.
