    this looks like a decent way to make a dock for the mini.

    I thinks that's the best way to make a custom dock...cheap, simple, and effective.

    I would be out tinkering with the mill right now making this if I could have got my hands on a mini for the price I wanted

    How is the mini working for you guys that have one?
    Any downfalls?

    That's a nice way to do it. I think that's the commercial unit that shows up every now and then that they want $400 for.

    I did mine out of plexiglass.

    Here's my worklog.

    Scan back of Mini, print out, trace on plexiglass with Sharpie.


    Cut holes in the plexiglass with a rotozip or dremel, then test fit.


    Build to fit your dash.

    I have seen yours bugbyte, props on the idea and execution.


    I just saw the aluminum one and thought this would be a fairly clever way for anyone that has access to a small mill to make a dock that could be quickly loaded and unloaded if the need arise.

    That's a pretty slick remote power button.
