    Hey All,

    CBINS Bezel Mount for iPad (05-07 Impreza/WRX/STI) - Interior

    this is the only solution that seems reasonable. Just for 05-07 though

    I'd imagine there are some pretty hefty liability reasons why scosche has not released that yet. ... As he said in the vid.. last thing you want is some dolt surfing the web or god forbid facebooking and crashing into something/someone...

    Though part of me really wants to play around with voice controls on something like that. Would be pretty sweet to have a completely voice controlled media/nav system.

    This is really old, but check out this guy's dashboard in his MR2. Shows what a lot of patience and know how can do:

    MR2 Digital Dash

    For me, and iPad mount only makes sense if it's integral to the console and controls all the HVAC, etc. That would be cool, but then I'd miss the tactile controls that let me adjust the stereo, HVAC, lights, etc without moving my eyes off the road. 10.1" is hard to work with (Giggity). I think fitting a Nook Color or 7" Galaxy Tab would be a lot easier to integrate into the center console.

    I've seen that before.. its effin beautiful!! That dash haunted my dreams its so nice lol. I had thoughts of grandeur thinking I might one day do that in the merkur I had. I ended up building a cluster out of autometer gauges and calling it a day (granted that looked/worked awesome too.. but not all nightrider super tight like the mr2)

    I have a mac mini kickin around that would be a wicked carputer..... hmm... but problem I see is that there are so many head unit designs out there now that work really well so why build one that gets close but doesn't do all when you can just about buy one for cheaper that has everything you'd need in a car already?

    Yeah, the level of detail in that build is absolutely incredible. It's the only car I know of that has a "CPU Utilization" gauge on the dash.
