    Okay was just checkin out the iPad http://www.apple.com/ipad/ and i got an idea having the iPad installed instead of a head unit. I personally think this is a great idea but you would have to get it with internet service which would cost a monthly fee so you could run iTunes or the navigation.

    Hmmm...interesting idea. It can probably be done with a lot of work. You'd need to have a custom din built to fit it because of it's irreagular shape. You'd also have to manipulate a lot of wires in order to hook everything up. How big is the iPad? Would it even fit in the stereo area?

    Yea if it looked factory and had all the functions it would be cool as hell. But would you be able to remove it and take it with you?
