Fitted a Blackberry Playbook to the dash using 2 strips of Velcro and a Blackberry desk stand case. Also took 2 mins


Apologies for the rubbish photo.

I can now listen to music; podcasts and also use the GPS and mapping software amongst other things.

At the moment I am trying different mapping apps.

Paul that look great,

I use multimap on a net book and cant recomend it enough, i dont know if it's avalible on the playbook but worth a look, I would also keep an eye on that mounted by the heater vents, the velco holding my netbook on the dash can come loose when I have the heaters on with the sticky back heating up, I would not like to see the playbook fall of there.

Hi Dan,

Many thanks for multimap tip. have used multimap in the past, but these days i tend to use the OSM maps as they are free and increasingly showing more detail than our beloved ordnance Survey maps. On my cycling GPS I run both OS and OSM and switch as appropriate. (OSM often show tracks that are not on OS. - Not that useful for GLRs as you have to be so careful these days taking to the byways)

I'll have a look if Multimaps do a playbook version.

IMO the playbook is better than the iPads and Andriods we have in our house as it just so much more useful. It links in seamlessly with my Blackberry phone so I have text messages, diary, work email and home email all on the same device. I still struggle (as I do with all tablets) with the on screen keyboard and often find that that put the tablet down and reach for a PC or laptop.

I am finding some problems with the velco. The playbook has not fallen off yet, but when I remove it, it does lift some of the velco from the top of the dash. Might try the real heavy duty stuff in hope that the glue is better.

At the moment it is the podcast app that really is my fav. as i sepnd a fair amout of time in the jimjam and listening to podcast are fantastic way of passing the time.

The other big advantage of the PB over the iPad is that I could if I wanted I could get 5 for the price of 1 iPad! :laugh:

Cheers
Paul
