  1. iPad in the Car - Forum Member Install

    by , 04-09-2010 at 05:25 PM
    I started planning an Ipad car install the moment I heard about it coming out. I've been using an in dash Ipod setup for a long time. I was inspired by "Bugbytes" thread to use the Iphone/pod as an in car "pc". The limitation of that is the small screen and remote control. The Ipad solves those issues very easily. I use apps like "Rev2.0" and "Dashcommand" to monitor OBDII metrics on the street and when I'm racing at the track. My future plans will include some sort of bluetooth control app of various things in the car. Touch screen remote start being one feature I'm looking forward to.
  2. Apply for an mp3Car Innovation Grant

    by , 04-07-2010 at 02:10 PM
    For some time now, mp3Car moderators have been awarding Innovation Grants to community members that are working on an interesting project or product. The goal of the grant is to support innovation among mp3Car forum members.

    We have just created a forum for the mp3Car Innovation Grant where any community member can post about what they are doing, or link to other threads on the forum or elsewhere, and let the moderators know what product or software they could use to further their work.

    The grant is awarded monthly, for a maximum of $100 including shipping. You can request any product or software; it does not have to be something sold on the mp3Car store. From time to time, the grant will be slightly larger.

    If you are working on something interesting, just post about it in this forum and let us know what we can do to help you advance your work. To get an idea of past grants, you can check out the wiki article.

    Overall the iPad is a great device and will have some really good mobile applications. The best way to describe it is to say that it just feels right.

    Jalopnik has an article about Dave Phipps who uses an iphone to control his car. We shot a video like this at SEMA a few months ago. Thanks Tom Berry for the tip!
