Thread: Guy installs iPad in to his car

    Default Guy installs iPad in to his car
    Dude installs iPad into his car dashboard | 9 to 5 Mac

    turns out looking pretty slick. Of course he will need a 3g router and a method to sync but still looks pretty sharp.

    That's pretty hot ... Why that Toyota though? Jeez. Looks like I might be scrapping the CarPC project on my Trans Am, and doing a Car-iPad instead ... That is only if I see solid performance like I have on my iPhone, in the 3G version of the iPad. Which I am not doubting at all! ;-)

    Pretty cool, reflection and glare could be an issue perhaps.

    Depending on the angle of your dash and front windshield, it could definitely cause some issues. I believe his car is upright enough to not cause any trouble. The front-facing part of the dash on our 06 Corolla rarely ever sees sunlight with how it is faced.

    But seriously, I would cry if I saw someone hack apart a 7 series like they did to that toy yoda.

    The higher end the car, the higher odds that it will end up hacked apart. Most of the hard modding I have seen done at my buddies shop, has been to cars in the $50k-$100k range. In-dash PC's were pretty popular to the Beamer/Benz kiddies for a while. That took a lot of cutting, and rearranging.
