I haven't seen that either or even in any car. I'd think the glare from the glossy screen would be too distracting in a car.

Depending on angle of mount and such... it should be fine.
Try doing a slightly recessed Fiberglass mount.

not sure bout wiring and all that but I am sure its possible. all the technology is there. you just need to put it all together

If you do go through with this wait for the iPad 3. I know someone who knows the guys at apple they say its gonna blow the first two away! And for the install kit I think if you look on youtube some guys at an auto shop did it with a scoshe kit and it came out very nice!

This would be alot more accsessable with an iPad Mini. Of course, 3g version. But I think that the Mini would fit much better.

Totally agree with Minchkin. Mini would definitely look sick and not too overdone.

Goose, it seems as though you might be the only one with the initiative to do so. If you want, you can start a parts thread and document this to the end, if you want. I have no want to do this as I am fairly happy with my stock setup. :) There are a ton of resources that have done major upgrades to their head units and dashes. It is just a matter of finding all of them.

I have actually considered doing it but I might have to prioritize lol. I have just finished putting a Di-noc vinyl on my 2010 dash and pretty much not bored of how it looks yet (Its pretty much stock radio) I might have to buy my rims and springs before I start the iPad project plus child support isn't helping either lol. Need to buy the little ones gifts and visit them in Parkersburg next month.
