I may get a lifeproof case for my iPhone and fabricate a mount for my it to tide me over in the mean time.
Don't want to use a Cell Phone or wireless based device. I want it to have reception in non cell areas in the backwoods. I think the Ipad Mini and lifeproof case would work ok on road but would not be good off road. I have a lifeproof case on my current Iphone and hate it. It's a pain to listen to audio on cause you have to use the dongle, some of my chargers don't work because the charge hole is to small etc... I'm going back to Otter box commuter...
