Personally, I find the iPad too large to want to mount it on my dashboard, but I've thought about at least a temporary mount for it in the back seat of my vehicle since my kidlet already watches movies and such on the iPad. I'd just have to queue some up versus relying on Netflix as I do when I'm stationary.

That said, I prefer the conversations she and I have while I'm driving (or looking back and seeing she's fallen asleep) to the glazed look she'd get watching a commute's worth of videos.

***Update: Check out how ios 4.2 for the ipad works with car stereos. Thanks David Housman for the tip. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsPdD65y4As][1]***

*Note: I don't like controlling the iPad from the car deck knobs, and a blank screen on the iPad.  Watching movies didn't work with Ford Sync.  It's a start, so I'll stick with my setup.*
