Good point. A trackball or touchpad are the way to go It would be cool to have a trackball mounted in the armrest!

Probably a stupid Q but the touch screen works with OSX. Are there drivers?

this might look good on your dash so you could hide your mini away!

How did you connect your mini to the sound system in your car? Is there an adaptor of some kind? Where does it connect through, the CD changer? I hope you don't mind answering me. Thanks

I use the iMic from Griffin and plug a cassette-to-headphone adapter into it. My stereo doesn't have an audio input jack so that was the most cost effective, best sound method. I haven't had much luck with the fm transmitters. Hope that helps, and good luck with your project.

Thanks, it's definately unique and non destructive to the Rover or other vehicle.
