IPad as EFB

I've been looking for an EFB solution for a long time.  I've looked at the Kindle and the various digital ink readers and haven't been too impressed.  When I got the G600 I was excited to have access to the ChartView, but in the real world it's a bit of a disappointment.  The ChartView on the Garmin is impossible to read when you have the whole plate displayed, it's a bit cumbersome to flip to, it's not georeferenced and the updates are expensive.  Today I bought an IPad in hopes of using it as an EBF in the cockpit.  My plan is to mount it on the control crossbar, though I haven't figured out how yet.  I installed foreflight and so far I'm super impressed.  I shot a quick video that gives an overview:
