The other day, I had left the car in "hot rod mode".

That means I instantly spilled my coffee every where the next time I hopped in the car to drive, and forgot how sensitive the throttle was.

I turned the throttle back down to "smooth acceleration no matter how hard you smash the throttle" mode.

Also, I installed the tablet computer into the dashboard by making a mount out of plexiglass and jambing it in the air vent frame.

So, now I have a somewhat heads-up Real-Time-Display for the controller.
I can also play music and videos through Media Player. Videos don't play great, as it's not a real fast processor or tons of memory.

( There is a 1/8" stereo headphone jack on the computer, and the same input jack on the car radio to connect to.)
