    iPad in the STi

    No no, this isn't the Scosche one everyone's seen. I don't like the way it looks. So I set out to revamp my bezel to accommodate an iPad. Here are the results:











    Streaming radio for all of my local stations and non-local stations. Pandora. Great GPS integration. I link with my OBD-II port using a Kiwi Wifi and get digital gauges as well.

    Control of it is easy and safe - I use gestures and voice control to do everything... very little is actually "look and touch" if you don't want it to be.

    The tabs are remarkably strong... the FEA I did shows they'll take about 80 lbs to break off. Considering the weight of the iPad and positioning of the tabs, it'd take a 38G acceleration to snap 'em. There's also foam on the back sides of the tabs and in the "i" emblem that helps distribute that force.

    The Apple iPad dock is sitting in a tray. You can bring in power and take out audio through the 30 pin, or just grab audio out through the headphone jack on the dock. Nice low profile way of doing things.

    Paint match is soooo close. Hard to tell it's not stock, really.

    I'm psyched the way this thing came out.

    Nicely done!
    A few years ago I probably would have attempted something like this.

    Does your awesomeness drag on the ground behind you wherever you go, or have you had it wrapped around you a couple hundred times? Seriously though, it looks really awesome.

    Wow, somehow I didn't get updates from this thread, sorry guys.

    Yes, this was posted on NASIOC a while back. That was the "main" thread and had a lot of user/community input into the development of this part.

    We'll be going into the full scale production soon, just waiting on the final quote by my manufacturer, due in today or tomorrow.
