    I have a 2001 Honda Accord Ex (if that matters) and I would like to try my ipad for navigation. Are there any car kits that would work with my situation?

    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

    Try Brodit-Shop.de - There you get two parts: One part of the mount is specially made for your car, your Honda Accord is available. The other part is made for your device, doesn't matter if iPhone or iPad or something else. I have the same in my Volvo V70 with my iPad 3, it is great as a Sat-Nav & for entertainment!

    Best,

    I use this model: MENB+ME-04 (Amazon) on my windshield for my iPads 1,2 and New. Fits all tablets. Most rugged I found, very sturdy, no wobble and easy to use. The ball joint connection is VERY solid! I tried other flimsy models before, they broke quickly.

    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'm thinking of doing the cup holder mount. Has anyone tried that out? Are their mounts durable?

    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.

    The ram mount does work great. I already had a laptop mount in my truck and just swapped the laptop trey for the ram tab mount.

    Mounted mine in my Toyota Fj Cruiser. We off road in it all the time so it's locked down and very sturdy. Used ram-mounts set up.

    Looks very nice

    Could you post pictures of how it is mounted and what the back looks like?
    does it impede in anyway a passenger in the car?

    Try this one: http://www.amazon.com/Satechi-SCH-12...mUvbUpU1888404

    It's only $40, but seems to do the trick.

    Here's details: 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.

    Hey sorry I just saw your post. I will post more pictures when I can. I asked my passengers they say it doesn't bother them. I myself have been in the passengers seat and there is no less room than before. I drive a focus, so space isn't exactly abundant but it doesn't get in the way according to my friends. Hope that helps.
