    I've seen a few people replace their truck's standard clock with 6th gen iPod Nanos. I would love to try this mod with a 7th gen Nano on my 2001 Tacoma, but I haven't seen it done in a Tacoma yet. The Nano looks like it would almost be a perfect fit, but before I go taking stuff apart I'd like to see one done so I could kind of have some guidelines, or know if i'd even like it. So any help would be nice!

    Here's some examples of it done in other vehicles

    Something along these lines

    I think it's a badass idea. Pretty self explanatory. The second link shows how simple it could be.

    Dismount/Cut/Plug/Mount

    Makes me thinking about doing mine.

    If you do it, take picture!!!

    I think it's a cool idea but...

    I'll be the devil's advocate:

    I think it would be awkward (and potentially dangerous) to operate a Nano in the factory clock space on a 1st gen while driving.

    Just my opinion.

    Ipod nano would be too small and awkward, Ipod touch would be perfect though!

    I wouldn't operate it while driving. I would just use a clock app and have the USB hooked up to my radio. I would control everything with my stereo.:cool:

    This is an awesome idea.
    I will be the guinea pig in seeing how easy it is to use it while driving!
