  2. iPad - System Wide Voice Control

    Ok so it's not true system wide access, but pretty darn close. Using a few apps, and a little jailbreak action, Justin Riley shows us how to control some basic functionality with just voice. Here we demonstrate adjusting the iPod, finding a place to eat, and even posting a tweet.

    Open your mind and imagine when iOS 4 comes out and vlingo can be backgrounded. The goal of vlingo is to allow any developer and their application to use the vlingo voice recognition engine to do whatever the developer wants with voice. So eventually everything you ever wanted to do will be able to do with voice.

    (p.s) still don't text and drive, even if you can do it with your voice!

  3. iPad - Keeping Your Eyes on the Road with Gestures.

    Justin Riley shows off us, on his custom iPad mount, how you can easily control some basic iPad functions with lots of gestures. After you do the quick 2 minute jailbreak (you wanted to do it anyway) you can enable a plethora of gesture controls. Slide from bottom up, top down, from status bar, tap and hold, pinch and even shake. And you can actually assign these gestures to anything you want.

    So you basically end up with a 9.7 inch touch pad, which IMO is easy to use w/o looking at the screen at all. Drive Responsibly™.

  4. Custom iPad Mounts

    Justin Riley has fabricated a really well finished bolt-in kit for the iPad. (wifi or 3g). This particular kit fits into the 2005-2007 Subaru Impreza/WRX and STi. (They all have the same dash).

    This bolt-in kit is a 1:1 replacement for the stock dash. Basically just pop out the old one, and put this in there. It has protection for the iPad, and when used with the Apple iPad Dock will charge and deliver audio. (via the 3.5mm cable)

    This kit for the Subaru series will be available on the mp3Car Store soon.
  5. 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.
