I'm kicking around a slightly different approach - thinking of running
xastir on an embedded ARM type board (I'm thinking PCduino, but a
Raspberry Pi is cheaper) and using the iPad as the GUI "console" via a
VNC client.

Considering price/performance, a tablet is a much better interface
than any of the third party in-car displays I've seen.
