I think you already know what you can do with your iPad.

    Go ahead and respond. We both know you ALWAYS have to have the last word.

    "As usual?" I don't know what you're talking about since I hardly post on this board. I wouldn't want to horn in on your little kingdom, oh self-appointed authority on all matters. How mature that you resort to name calling.

    So. You have difficulty listening to music while driving? Somehow I'm not surprised.

    Congrats forum. You have converted two nice members Sube & Right Turn, into bickering, hostile, mean, members. You should really work on Captain now. He is waaaaaay too nice. Then see what you can do about ewill3rd. He knows waaaaaay too much, and needs to be knocked down a few notches.

    This place sucks.

    Capt, actually I've never been on that forum before. I have a PDF of that doc, but it's too large to post, so I went looking for the original link. Couldn't find it, but I did find that one. You can relax. I won't be driving my X at high speeds.

    Nope. The forum hasn't changed me one bit. It's just RT. She and I have been butting heads since the early days. I think she secretly loves me and just doesn't know how to express it. You know, like you did in grade school.

    Re: Anybody tried connecting an Ipad to the SRX?

    see the thing about an ipad is the show-off factor.

    just about everyone who bought an ipad bought it to flash it so people could say "oh wow you have an ipad can i touch it blah blah blah."

    everyone has an ipod, everyone and their grandma has a usb stick. not everyone has an ipad connected to their SRX. so, its not about the music or where the music is stored, its about saying "hey look how cool i am because i have an ipad, and its connected to my srx"


    heres the part where everyone who is trying to do this accuses me of not being able to afford apple products and defends their product with statements such as "it just work" "its just more convenient" "its user friendly" etc etc. i may as well have offended their mother

    no, when you strike that nerve it's worse than offending their mother

    Re: Anybody tried connecting an Ipad to the SRX?

    As if the automotive industry hasn't installed enough on board gadgetry in vehicles to further distract drivers, we need to add more?

    I don't have a problem with people who choose to or need to enhance the functionality and the pleasure they can derive from their vehicle, as long as they do it safely. I do have a real problem when the line has been crossed and the increased driver distraction factor comes into play. That line has already been crossed long ago and the trend continues in the wrong, lethal direction......when someone's personal choices supercede (in their own mind) my safety, that of my family, and that of those whom I care about.

    RT.........you very well may cue up before your vehicle leaves the curb and then turn your full attention to driving while the car is in motion, pulling over when the need arises to make some changes. That probably puts you in the minority. Or you may very well be the opposite, the mainstrean who figure multitasking while driving is a harmless distraction, or no distraction at all. That probably puts you in the majority, sadly.

    I currently drive about 18,000 miles a year and am totally fed up with distracted drivers. Am I supposed to be responsible not only for my own driving habits but also for the rising tide of callous drivers who choose to be doing everything in their vehicle OTHER THAN safely pilot their vehicles? Vehicles.....nope. 4,300 pound weapons is a more precise description.

    If any of the posters in this forum take the position that this thread's discourse has an element of taking the sublime to the ridiculous, I have to agree. If any posters suggest the distraction factor, like adding yet another piece of unnecessary hardware to a vehicle, I have to agree. But to suggest these posters should take their comments elsewhere is an insult to me. This is a public forum, and my voice is no more or less important than anyone elses'.

    Maybe when some of the posters have a wife, children, and grandchildren on board whom they love but find themselves and their family popped by a distracted driver who can't simply hold a lane, their speed, or see a slowing vehicle right under their freakin' nose (happened to me 2 years ago), the light bulb will go off.

    Maybe when their vehicle gets crunched in a parking lot by a distracted driver driving 2 mph but who feels compelled to monkey with the gadgets rather than safely pilot their vehicle, the light bulb will go off (happened to me twice in the past 5 months with the SRX).

    Or maybe when they lose a close friend (as I have in 2009....wife, mother, and grandmother) who gets run over while standing by the side of the road by a 30-something, distracted driver who couldn't safely negotiate a straight, 75 yard, 25mph stretch 4 of lane road in broad daylight while screwing with technology which was more important to him than the safety of others, the light bulb will go off. A manslaughter/vehicular homicide charge is all the latter got, but it won't bring my friend back and has terribly altered for the worse many lives, mine included.

    Yup, too many amongst us keep on believing we can handle the multitasking distractions better than the next person. Statistics and controlled studies continue to prove us wrong, dead wrong in too many instances. But we ignore them. It won't happen to us.

    So for me this simple thread of adding an Ipad to the SRX takes on a lot more than a discussion of compatibility, fun, functionality, and entertainment. Post what you will, but don't presume to tell me to take my opinions elsewhere if I don't like where the thread is going.
