    Need the cellular Mini to be optimal. Didn't look like it charges. Maybe they can wire in the cable to the cars power and somehow cover the input into the Mini.

    Looks nice! Would be great if it incorporated a charger though.

    What happens when you drive over a pothole? Does the iPad Mini fly out?

    Does it charge, ah no.
    Does it connect to the cars sound system, nope.
    Can it Bluetooth to the cars radio, sorry we removed it.

    Pretty ain't it

    Having an iPad in the car is cool, but iPads aren't really designed for the temperatures and vibrations found in cars.

    That's why making them removable is best.

    My god. I do hate the miserable pricks on this forum. Don't know why I keep coming here :rolleyes:

    It looks great OP! Would love to do something like that myself with the cellular version :D

    OP that is nice but how secure is it? Sound Man has installed every single system in each of my cars until I moved out of the SVC. They're truly talented.

    Looks more like a proof-of-concept than prime time ready. Perfect for a concept car or a Bond movie.

    But very nicely done.

    Really needs a charger and LTE to be effective, how much does it cost you reckon?

    I was thinking the same thing, but then the battery does last a long time.

    If you go to their website mentioned in the video they have some pricing there.

    Agreed, just because something can be done doesn't mean it should. I'm not sure what you gain by putting a wifi only ipad into a car. No Nav, No internet, sure you can listen to music/videos but I think this is just a hipster look at me deal. I don't get it.:eek:

    It looks cool and all and I really do believe Apple will move their way into cars so im not arguing, but a large reflective screen with text sizes intended to be read at a close distance seems a bit dangerous. Even with Siri then I'm finding its not as hands free as it should be because choosing GPS locations or approving commands requires extra tapping.

    But functionality aside, it does seem like a fun project.
