    sadly, i lost the link after a couple too many computer re-do's(my family isnt easy on computers...)

    but i used to have a link to a place that supplied the 30 pin connectors,

    i am thinking that you might be able to purchase the connector, and then very carefully solder your own cable-- the connector itself is very low profile-- it is the plastic around it that adds the extra depth...

    I want to do this for one of those notebook connector docs, only this one is 50pin. Can't find anything like that yet.

    Great to see someone else is contemplating iPad integration!

    Instead of using the 3.5 headphone and peramp option here is another bluetooth option http://www.belkin.com/pressRoom/rele...cReciever.html
    I'm thinking of using this when I do my iPad installation as i dont want the look of cable plugging in the top of the iPad.

    On another note I'm looking at hacking this up and wiring this into my steering wheel buttons (as running extra wires up the steering column is almost impossible) http://www.scosche.com/products/sfID...productID/1821. This is further reason why I need to be able to change the iPad's volume up/down via iPad.

    Keep us up to date on your progress Disco

    Might want to have a listen to Bluetooth audio in a vehicle before you commit to it as your primary method....quality is pretty good but it cuts out a lot when theres other bluetooth devices near or if theres interference of any kind (which happens a lot more then it should).

    This has been very helpful. The mount is going to be a piece of art. When done it will be the most rugged and low profile mounting system that I have ever seen on a tablet. Unfortunatley the cost is quite high as we are machining the intricate adapter parts from billet aluminum. It's going to be very solid. I will post photos as soon as I get some thing in hand.

    Guys,

    So I'm super ****ed to find out that after buying the Belkin wireless bluetooth device you can't adjust the volume on the iPhone/iPad. It seems that you can't do this with any connected bluetooth audio device from the iPhone platform. Is there any way around this. Someone on this forum told me that it was possible...not true.

    Bummer...what a waste.

    Any ideas?

    I use my Aliph Jawbone Prime 2 (bluetooth) head set for calls and I control the volume directly from my iPhone. Don't think the headset is A2DP though.

    I'm really not to sure why the iPhone can control the volume level of some devices but not others. Maybe someone can clear this up for us?

    Disco sorry if we have hijacked your thread a little.

    short answer:
    It's an apple product-its not one of the 3 things apple allows you to do.

    real answer:
    It's an oversight....audio data is volume neutral went sent as a PCM stream...its up to the end device to adjust the level when playing. Most likely its just the audio control protocols that are not supported on the ipad.
