I also think thats a lot neater than the big ipad in the dash as well, the only problem I can foresee is that you'll need to take your ipad everywhere if you want music/radio in the van.

What about making a mould for a normal iphone to sit in behind it so that when you've not got your mini ipad with you, the iphone can sit in the middle of that space and provide phone, music and possibly radio from some apps.

Its only an idea.

Thanks bud!
Neat idea for iPhone, might be a bit tricky with receiving calls etc with iPad in place tho
We are fitting Alpine Media Dab units now!
So constant Dab in the van, it also has an aux in for iPad
We fit the alpine screen/controller down below the cup holders

The idea was that when you didn't have your mini iPad with you, there would be a space behind where it would sit for an iPhone so that you could still use it.

Otherwise it means you have to have your mini iPad with you every time to have music, when you haven't got it, you can plug your iPhone in and run music from that as well as access to it for answering calls.

I hope this explains what I was meaning, if not I'll ring you or see you at Volksworld again.

Cheers

Would this panel fit a 2003? How easy is it to get a feed out to my amps? I don't own an iPad or iPhone can I get all my cds onto iTunes and then does the iPad have built in fm radio?

Hi

The best ways of getting to your amps, we have found are

For best quality Audio:

Ipad Mini-
Lightning Connector to 30pin adaptor-
30pin extension Cable-
Ipad Dock-
Alpine Eazi Dab-
Amps

You can also plug 2.1A charger into dock to give charging

For Bluetoth connectivity(vehicles without amps etc

Alpine Eazi Dab-
Parrot hands free with streaming-
Vehicle Speakers

Hope this makes sense any questions you can call me on 07813 300776
Thanks
Dan

Nice job mate, I've just done the same thing. T:
I went down the parrot mki9200 line which I fibre glassed into the four blanks on the right. Works really well.
If the pads not in the phone can still run music via blue tooth.

Got to love this set up. iPad in a car is a powerful upgrade.

We are currently using Sony single din headunits with iPad app control
This enables you to control the headunit from your ipad
You can change source. Radio, cd etc and volume from iPad
I'll post up some pics
