    iPad in Silverado Part II - Auto On/ Off with Display Out

    I have finally finished this project. I have been looking for auto on/off and video out to work with my install. After talking to the developer for PluggedIn, he was able to add some options to his app to make it work in the car. He will be adding the option to resume shortly. Currently, you can tell it which application you want it to start up on. This comes in handy when using a Front End as krillin47 is currently working on one. But the developer will add the option to just unlock it when you plug it in so that it will resume on other apps. In my case, I use Pandora a lot and it would unlock to that app. Another tweak is DisplayOut which works great since the framerate is not affected and it doesn't lag at all. These tweaks are must-have for anyone with an iPad in the car and I figured you guys would be interested in checking these out as I have seen many iPad installs in these forums.

    Here's the link to the YouTube video:


    UPDATE:
    Here's one that I just finished on my brother's Toyota Prius:

    That is really nice! Thanks for the pointer to it.

    Your install is also really nice with the dual headrests tied into the iPad. Looks sweet.

    Do you have your iPad running the auto screen dimmer? I've found that to be very useful.

    I do have ScreenDimmer, but noticed that on the new iOS 4.2.1 the iPad still dims on the iPod an Safari apps... It's a little annoying.

    It's out already, but it's beta. No bluetooth and well, it's beta.
