This thread is going to chronicle my journey to fully integrate the in dash Ipad setup. This is going to take alot of time, testing, Help from other forum members, and patience. First off, I take no credit in figuring out how to do this. It has been done very well in a 69 GTO.
Here is a list of my goals:
Control the following functions: 1. Cooling Fans for the Ipad and gauge sensor modules
2. Mirror video display
3. trunk release
4. Power seat movement
5. NOS purge (dual setup Left,Right, Left+Right)
6. Exhaust cutouts(been done already)
7. Auto adjust the stiffness of my BC Racing coilovers(Big Challenge)
8. Turn audio amps on and off
9. light control inside the interior
This thread will be about bench testing each function before installing the whole system in the car. Here is a short but extremely entertaining video of the first test....

relays on the board will open/close from the IR commands out of the Redeye module. I'm just adding 30amp relays to whatever I want to control and then when the 12V relay board commands its relay to open, it allows the 30amp relays to go to ground and energizes power to whatever I'm controlling.
Right now I'm just testing out things before I install everything in the car. The new redeye app update says it allows custom backgrounds and buttons so I should be able to make a pretty cool "dashboard" for all the controls.
What's the mirror video display part? You mean mirror an IP camera input? or the iPad video out? there is no way to attach a composite rear camera to the iPad so I'm confused! Links to the relays/boards you're using would be nice, if possible.
How does the redeye thing compares to alternatives? Why did you choose that one? Is it a dock? How did you install it? Pics please!
The relays are just 30amp automotive relays from radio shack. Let me find a link to the 12volt ir relay board. I chose redeye because compared to other control devices, the price is right and seems to be easy to program. I don't have the redeye module installed in the car yet.
Very interesting project... Subscribed!

Did you ever have a link for the relay board that you're using?
