You should not really be on your laptop while driving should you!

I got a cup holder mount (very stable) for my pda from these guys:
These guys look interesting too:
The magic keywords are: laptop car mount

Be very careful while driving and computing. It is very easy to let your eyes get locked on the screen while driving, only to look up and see a ditch approaching fast. It is incredibly dangerous.

I think that what he means is a desk for when he is parked. Lots of people work out of their car.

Thanks for your concern, Dazz. I'll have a gps unit attached to the laptop, and it will be talking to me, but I will have the laptop closed so it won't distract me. I think that having it talk to me will be much less distracting than constantly looking for street signs. Any other interaction with the computer will be done before I start driving, or while I'm pulled over.

Trust me: when you have a computer in your car powered up and active, the lure is seductive. You'll be reaching for that keyboard before you even realize you've done it. I finally had to just leave it in the case and only use it later when I'd stopped.

I worked for a (now defunct) contractor who installed these in police cars - they were fully positional, had lockable covers and were made of steel - wish I knew who made them!
