    Thats actually pretty cool how you made the actuator idea...... Bugbyte was looking to do something, maybe this can work for him too!

      You did a really good job of showing a lot of car friendly apps. (minus the movie ones) Not a lot of iPad videos have done this.

      Are you jailbroken? I'm guessing yes.
      And what app is that that lets you stream movies in theaters?

        This is very impressive. Can you list the apps you used in your demo?
        Have a product you would like to sell on the mp3Car Store? PM me for more information.

        Have a car computer question? Ask me by emailing the store.

          Very, very impressive install and cool video to boot, thanks!

          I've seen Soundhound and Flick Tunes in there, the gesture based control for the itunes? Also UnlimVideos too, via Cydia.

              Very well done! I'm looking at a tilt forward/backward portrait style dash installation. Do you mind giving me the source for the linear actuator? I might want to use one for that. Haven't decided yet.

              Great job!

                The ipad is jailbroken and the App for in theater movies is called UnlimVideos which is found in Cydia or Rock.

                I used: Pandora, SlingPlayer, Whistle, UnlimVideos, Beatmaker, FlickTunes, SoundHound, and Activator to set the different gestures.

                I got it from Progressive Automations, here's the link: http://progressiveautomations.com/mi...-/prod_44.html

                It is strong enough for any car application since it is the 15 lb actuator, but it is a little large. So you have to plan out how you will fit it behind the dash...

                    Wifi, but I got it tethering off my iPhone with unlimited data plan.

                      Here are some pics of the steps I took:

                      Here's a pic of my first install:
                      I didn't like it because this one slid in from the top and I had to manually connect the dock connector cable and interfere with the right air vent...

                      This is the shroud that I made out of plexiglass because it was easy to cut and see:

                      More pics of the shroud:


                      Mounting the Actuator was tricky, but I got it to line up:


                      And the final product:


                      Night Time:

                      This was my second attempt at fiberglassing and here are some pictures of my first attempt with a molded GPS unit on the overhead console:

                        Question to torres1708

                        Hi torres1708,
                        I have a question regarding your setup. The dock connector you are using, where did you get that? I am having some trouble locating the dock connector that is flexible like yours...
                        thanks in advance...

                              this makes me want to scrap my entire carpc project and install an ipad
                              lol

                              i think i'll try and convince my freind to put an ipad setup in his car.
                              he already has a carpc in his truck.
