We have no shortage of great car kits and mounts in the CrackBerry store, but sometimes that's simply not enoughc. Take for example CrackBerry member Mark PPG. He was inspired after watching the video of the QNX Jeep and set out to complete a similar project on his car, modifying the dash a bit so he has a home for his 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook. By relocating the existing car stereo into the space previously occupied by the air vents and altering the stock radio trim, and building custom brackets to hold the PlayBook, Mark now has the perfect setup for his car. The mount tilts out so that the tablet can be inserted/removed and so that he can plug in an audio jack to play music through the car stereo. He says future plans may include a BlackBerry Music Gateway and a power source for the PlayBook.

Mark currently has just a few applications installed on the PlayBook, including a music player and a couple of navigation apps. He's looking for more so if you have any suggestions that you think would be great on a 4G LTE BlackBerry PlayBook in a car mount, feel free to leave them in the comments or in the forums at the link below.
