Tablet Car Holder For Fiesta 2013

04 October 2013 - 01:42 PM

Hi,

 

I would like to use my new Nexus 7 2013 in my ford fiesta. What tablet car holder / mount are you guys using? I thing the thing that would look better would be a CD Slot mount to give it some use :) but it would cover the radio controls but I think it's a minor issue.

 

Thank you


Google Nexus 7 As A Gps Unit And Ford Sync Integration

05 May 2013 - 10:38 AM

Hi guys,

 

In some days I'll be the proud owner of a Ford Fiesta 2013! :-)

 

I wasn't convinced by the integrated SatNav system because it would take me 2 months minimum to get the car and didn't know if it was good or not, so for 600€ extra I decided not to buy it.

 

The alternatives:

 

- GPS portable unit

- Tablet with GPS (Nexus 7 came to mind) to use when needed with downloadable apps

 

I'm not sure where to mount the gps / table yet but I don't want it to mark the windshield so I was thinking in a dash aproach.

 

Anyone was experience with using a tablet for GPS vs a gps dedicated unit? Does the tablet sync with ford sync?

 

Thank you
