Re: In-Car, Dash-Mounted iPad

looks like he added a volume knob and bass/treble. How else would he integrate it?

hacking a cable to your EQ doesn't <> integrated.

Re: In-Car, Dash-Mounted iPad

Yeah I agree on custom installs... he didn't quite get it finished.

iPad doesn't come with coverflow so I'm curious how he plans on switching sources on that thing... with glare and need to look at small print, it might not be the safest way to go.

I'd be more impressed if the ipad allowed customization to the interface... XBMC or something with big buttons would be better.

on a related note... there are a bunch of android tablets coming out at about $200-$250 with a 5" to 7" display size... some very slick interfaces on the androids for playing music... I use one called "3" and it's easily operated with one finger.

Do you know if the iPad has voice control like the iPhone? That could make it alot more interesting. I think he should have at least flipped it 180° so the home button was closer to the driver.
