    i think the guy that broke the "cannonball run" record recently may have used them for this,,, if you look @ the setup they had, it looks like the tablets mounted to the dash might've been playbooks...

    Yeppers too, I have it mounted in front of the head unit in my Ridgeline (with a flipdown mount to acessradio/cd exchange bits etc.)and BT unit to get it into the stereo. EVERY CD I own is on the road with me, and using Maggelan for voice Nav. I almost might have to leave one of my PB permanently in my truck. Quick mount to hide from unsavory types....

    I have the compass when on the road with preloaded maps and bluetooth music on normal days. It also serves as my caller ID so I don't have to take the cell off my pocket

    I was thinking in something more that a multimedia center, more like open the playbook and use the camera like a reverse camera, use a obdII bluetooth adaptor and have real time informacin from the engyne .

    I have my playbook mounted on the dash of my toyota echo and use a 3.5mm to 3.5mm audio cord to stream music to my deck. I also use a Vgate OBDII wifi dongle and Torque Pro on the playbook to get real time updates of my engines performance. I highly recommend Vgate's wifi dongle. I read somewhere some of the bluetooth ones don't play well with the playbook.

    Man, as much as I would like to do something like this, I cant see a way it would be useful for me. I only stream music these days and I dont have bridge or Internet Sharing on my phone. Not enough data anyways. The Turn by Turn on my phone is better too. :/ I guess it would be a neat dash cam. LOL
