I measured and the iPad case I was using to slide into fits just right in between the AC vent dash bezel you're talking about. Looks like I need to trim it slightly so there's no touching:

Just wait until att sees all the data your using with the tether, they'll be changing your plan for you!

I'm thinking about making it into an actual kit, I have a feeling some people would like it but not sure there is a big enough demand. I have to get a working prototype first and then think about it. Working on the bezel today

I can tell you there is a huge demand for these kits but people are only willing to spend $200-250 and you are going to darn nearly have that in parts so there would be no way to make money......that's why I stopped working on mine I knew that it wouldn't be worth my time to make $50-100 on each one after the amount of time to make them......that's why shops charge $800 to do it

I think people would pay a bit more to have an integrated iPad. A half decent double din radio is like $500.. To clarify, I deleted the head unit altogether. I have a volume knob, play/pause, Bluetooth, wireless remote, 4 channel amp, etc.

So I got most of my install complete. I made a little plastic box to house the electronics and modified a Scosche piece to fit. I'm done working on it for the week, my equalizer will be here on Monday so i'll pick it back up then.

I personally would pay the $800 for someone like Soundman CA to do my Tacoma *IF* I was near them, or *IF* a person near me could prove they were as good at doing this as the other pro shops I have seen.

This makes a lot of sense. So basically you're using the device as a 4 channel high level pre-out and just use a LOC on the back end to go to an amplifier? What unit are you using?

Noticed that some of you are talking about jailbreaking your iphone 5 to tether to the iPad. If you have a 5 there is no reason for the jailbreak. Turn on your iPhones mobile hot spot and then search for networks on your iPad and it will show "iPhone". This does not work for any other devices other than the iPad unless you decide to actually pay for the hotspot. You all may know this but just a suggestion for those who don't.

You're on the same track I was......I had mine looking great with an integrated charger and everything then I ran into issues of how to get it in and out of the dash kit somewhat easily. The hard part is not building the dash kit its integrating it in the truck to make it accessible to remove I wish you the best of luck man!!

I see what you're saying about the silver center AC subframe piece giving you problems, so I modified the dock wiring to make a hard right and it clears with no problem. This weekend i'm going to finish it up, so far it looks like it would be pretty easy to make the kit but i'm looking for bigger fish.

When I turn on the truck, the iPad unlocks to the home screen. Then when the truck is turned off, the iPad screen shuts off.

Yea I did the same thing, then shortly after realized that I didn't have to if I cut up my brand new docking cable.. So I have to fill it in tomorrow.

So I got everything up and running, I actually added a powered 8" subwoofer under the passenger seat. I don't really like a ton of bass, and it's a perfect match for the new door speakers. I'll take a couple pictures tomorrow once I'm done sanding and filling imperfections. Still undecided on the color, but i'm thinking gloss black like the new dash.
