My many thanks to Dustin & Don for a fantastic job,
Pete

It is a semi permanent install, but not removable for anti-theft. It's actually my girlfriend's original iPad 1 WiFi model, which I just used for the fitting. I am going to put the 4G Verizion LTE iPad 3 in next week when they come out.

aaahh very nice... the set up that i want was to be able to remove it on a daily basis, kinda like a flat back piece molded into the h.u area, and where im able to just plug in and remove at my discretion like a faceoff unit... how is the connection between the alpine and the ipad ? sound quality wise?

The connection is via digital out thru a USB D/A convertor and analog into the Alpine HU. Sounds fantastic!
