May I ask how much you have invested in this setup minus the ipad itself?

Takes a matter for a second or two to get to the Sony radio.

LONG SHOT! Is there a way I could get you guys to fabricate me a docking mount for a Galaxy Tab 2 7" for an 08 opening? I am going to try this with my Galaxy Tab 2 instead of iPad.
Yes, I did it with a nexus 7 for a fraction of the iPad pricing.

That is so cool. I hate the stock nav system. What a pita.

Certainly interested in hearing more about this, especially if you offer a DIY kit.

I'm also interested in the Android version, just not a big fan of iEverything

Maybe the galaxy tab 7? If T-mobile comes out with it and they have one of these new 'un' plans for it, I just might jump on it.

Do you have any pictures? The only thing I do not like it when connecting to the Sony radio via bluetooth the radio doesn't automatically go to the app remote function. So it would be impossible to have the Tablet installed permanently because you would have to manually switch the radio to the app remote function.. Unlike the iPad through USB..

TampaSteve, is there anyway I could buy the iPad mount from you? Im sure you have made multiple mounts seeing how you now sell them as a kit. What would the price on just the mount be?

TampaSteve, with this setup, when you get in the truck and start it, does the radio start playing right away and display the station on the ipad screen? I was doing some research and it seemed like there were some apps that may allow the ipad/Android to "wake-up" and immediately launch an app.

Also, if you are using the radio and navigation, how does it work to switch between the two apps?

It sure looks like the way to go vs. a navigation double din head unit and you get so much more flexibility.

Thanks
Chris
