    Ok guys, most of you have seen my IPAD install in my VE commodore.

    Now its time for Part 2.

    Over the next few weeks im working on a number of things, some of these are

    IPAD Control of Power Seats
    IPAD control of Mirrors
    POSS IPAD control of Windows

    A few other things will probs end up being controlled but will see how i go.


    And Maybe Remote Start Via the IPAD, This will be in conjunction with a Key Fob thingie that most new cars have.

    To do all this, The ipad will talk wirelessly to a IR Sender, The IR Sender sends a signal to a IR Control Board or a few and then this runs into relay's and then the device.

    Of course i will probs keep the original controls in place, this is just to see if its possible and waste some time :)

    I will also be getting the new circuit board to intergrate the IPAD into the Steering wheel controls and driver screen.

    If you have not seen the ipad installed here is a pic.

    HVAC is coming to the iPad very soon however I'm going to leave the LCD in there as backup and to use when gps and other apps are open .

    I'm tossing up between keeping the leather look or going back to carbon fibre look. Thoughts??

    Are you willing to make any more of those facias for a price? I love the look and wish to do the same, just not quite as advanced as your looking at doing with your list above.

    Hey mate and all asking me in pms for fascia's,

    i will see how i go when i completely finish this project. While i want to make them and help you guys out there is alot of time that goes into hand making on of these so this would make a unrelistic price so in a few weeks i will approach some people and see if they want to take it on.

    Appreciated Westy27, and thank you for letting us know to hang in a little longer. Still have to say that it looks amazing though.

    Can I gauge intrest in how many people would be interested in a plug and play kit for this setup.

    I am by no means saying I'm going ahead with it but just seeing if it's worth while

    Total cost is unsure but will exceed $2000

    Very rough breakdown is

    iPad $700
    HVAC $450
    Console surround $350 ( have to check with Holden)
    Cables $100
    Fascia ?? Around 300 plus depending on how many.


    Cheers

    you will not have fun if you must jailbreak the iPad for full functionality.

    Oh, ok then :) you could possibly get away with using 1st gen iPads. would be much cheaper if you can get them...

    In relation to this I would be interested if something happens.

    Also are you able to run say a reverse camera through it?

    Nice project mate, would be nice to see a little bit more work put into the software, because as far as I can see in your picture the guages are a bit stretched and look kidda out of it. Other than that it looks beaut.

    IPad 1 and iPad 2 are the pretty much the same. All apple do is release a product with a brush aluminium back and then a few months later release a another one that is the same thing but with a gloss plastic backing that is a bit thinner and lighter.

    As for jailbreaking, its a very simple task that can be performed on either the iPad 1 or iPad 2 in about 10 minutes, so that really shouldn't be too much of a problem for potential buyers.

    I agree they do look Stretched however this isn't the case in real life , have a look at the YouTube clip in the previous topic for a better idea. Once you buy this skin you can modify it for colour text logos etc
