Here’s the second part of the install of the iPad into the dash of a car. (Read part 1 here) They had some problems with getting a digital source from the iPad so they had to settle with an analog source. Still looks awesome! They also got the iPhone to work with the stock bluetooth through the aftermarket audio.
This is awesome! I would so do this if I had money laying around, but I don’t. This video is of a car stereo shop named “Sound Man Car Audio” based out of Santa Clarita, CA. They are documenting the install of an iPad into the dash of a Toyota. This video is only the first day of the install, so more will come. They also have some documentation on how to integrate an iPod touch or iPhone into your car audio system.
On The day of the iPad release, we were able to start our planned iPad project. We chose to use the iPad as the only source for the vehicles entertainment system. The dock connector will plug into a cable that runs to a Onkyo ND-S1 which will send the digital signal from the iPad directly into an Audison Bit One. The Bit One will then act as the D/A converter, and will also process the audio signal. The Bit One also has a great controller for adjusting the volume and audio settings. The amplifier we chose is the McIntosh MCC406M. Stay tuned for the rest of the build. You’ll be able to find all the pictures and videos on this page as they become available.
