So I'm bored at the fire station today and I said "self why couldn't you mount a small tablet or iPad in the fj?, I can use it for gps streaming audio, movies, oh god who knows what else.." has anyone done this? I can wifi tether it off my iPhone so it has real time updates for everything. And I can store huge amounts of audio/video on it and go directly into the deck.

My setup, using RAM arm/holder plus a homemade bracket attached to the side of the center console. Very sturdy and no wiggle when the FJ is in motion.

I like that! I may have to make some changes to mine to something like that. I've found that when the iPad is in the vertical orientation like that, I can't see anything on the screen when wearing polarized sunglasses.

My iPad mount when I'm park (mall crawling) and browsing the forums while waiting for my general (wife) to finish her (long) shopping list.

Hey Nestor, What does this mount through on the inside? I have a ram mount coming for my Xoom and looking for a good solution to mount it securely as the panavise mount just doesnt look sturdy enough.

Two 50mm long M6 bolts, two big flat washers and two flanged/serrated M6 nuts.

I ended up going with the app radio and I love it!! I feel a lil mislead though. I feel in love with Bluetooth audio for my music when I had my 2011 4runner. I thought that's what I was getting. Alas it only plays audio plugged in to the iPhone. Which is kinda a pain in the tukas. But all in all I love the setup. I can't wait for more appradio friendly apps tho. But it is nice to watch Netflix when I'm stuck in traffic at the tunnel!!!
