Ok, now that we can anticipate the arrival of a 9.7 inch LED backlit screen that comes with a computer for $499, I'd like to hear some ideas of how Ridgeline owners will integrate these into their systems.

The integration is only made possible (as far as I can imagine) through the Bluetooth technology. The dimensions are...
Height: 9.56 inches (242.8 mm)
Width: 7.47 inches (189.7 mm)
Depth: 0.5 inch (13.4 mm

After considering a "sling" between the two front headrests and then trying to come up with a flip-down holder concept from the ceiling, I think the most benefit and comfort for the driver and all passengers would be to place the iPad over the head unit.

I know the iPad won't replace a deck/head unit (yet) but for now it will only complement or enhance a current system. With the 3G option and endless applications, I expect the iPad to become a common fixture in vehicles as time and technology advances.

So, please come up with some mounting ideas. This is the first hurdle.

Or through "omni" dock connector.

Depends on what functionality you're looking for. I wouldn't be opposed to a mount that went in place of my factory head unit. All I'd need to figure out is what power amp/mixing hardware to use and how to control the levels & EQ of same.
