I hate the tackiness of tip signs. I was considering a laminated card of XM station channels with tip info on the bottom then got into ....

What if a tablet?

I've read the threads - stealing/breaking the tablet isn't a concern ... Not going to offer Google or NetFlix (they had to have a smartphone to call me).

I'm thinking a mounted tablet for the purpose of facilitating the use of Square/ApplePay/AndroidPay/etc. for tips.

It would be "functional" in the pax viewpoint I feel because it offers them value in the content:

-Restaurant Guide: Yelp, Urban Spoon
-Music: XM guide, iTunes, Pandora
-Games: Quickie Solitaire type
-Humorous Meta-Picture type slide show
-NewsFeed
-Weather
-Community calendar
-Things to do suggestions for tourists

And of course.... a tipping link-
Square/ApplePay/AndroidPay ... Suggestions fo other?

Nothing political... Religious... Off color. I know there's a co that does something similar and sells ads and gives the drivers kickbacks. The ONLY advertising would be about me :D :D :D or... Maybe ads I sell to local merchants? Hmmm....

Maybe a bio about me, my family? (So I don't have to tell my damn story over and over.) This is where I'd insert pictures of the waifs (aka my kids) to drum up compassion.

I'm NOT tech savvy so mostly I'm fishing for info on how to set that up and obviously the obligatory opinions - I really want to emphasize I am not interested in hearing it will get stolen or broken - Seattle is not your average market. I've had a $75 inverter in the back for a year - still there - still respected. I've gained more chargers than I've lost. (Lost ONE to a really drunk pax that did not take it intentionally....)

That's a great idea for the keynote and I hadn't thought about controlling it through my iPhone. I was hoping to have it locked into an account they can only access the links I provide .... That's the part I'm unsure about. But since I just bought a new iPhone + AppleCare I am entitled to lessons from the Genius Bar.. The Keynote tip jogged my memory of that perk! Thanks!!! I know Apple does have Kensington slots to lock stuff down. Sucks to be old! My brain can't jump as high as I'd like it to anymore... Well, neither can my legs ;-)

I've heard of other ad generating revenue systems, but I probably wouldn't use it. I don't think passengers want the "taxi" experience. My slideshow that I created is a minimal / unobtrusive guide on how to better use Lyft / Uber. It also has dinner ideas and such. I also don't think people would use the tip option. I think those who really want to tip will have cash available.
What is your user guide like?
