I've always wanted to stick an iPad in my WRX because I hated all the double din aftermarket radios. They are all slow and out dated compared to todays technology.
So, I just got an iPad mini the other day and it's the perfect size for what I want to do. The width fits perfectly with the stock bezel, but some trimming and modification will be needed to fit it hight wise.
I got the inspiration from this video:
What I want to do is what they did, create a magnetic holder for the mini. But I also want to have a single din radio hidden behind it. I also want to have it connected to a lighting port to it gets power and so the radio can use the cable to play the music so it frees up the bluetooth for my phone.
I've never done/created anything like this and I'm open to ideas/suggestions. And you're free to use this design and make your own, you just have to make me one
Rough idea I created in google sketch up.
