Ipad Head Unit 350Z

Posted · Report post

Finally had the time to start on something thats been on my mind for quite a long time. Being a big apple iphone/ipad user, i knew i had to get this done to my car. So over the week i pulled out my dash and then grabbed a hand saw and really hoped for the best result. Attached are pics of how it turned out. I'm quite impressed of how it all fits in so perfectly into the factory dash and how it turned out to look. The factory dash didnt require any difficult adjustments but to simply just cut the middle bar that seperates the stock radio headunit and storage box. The main work was to create the housing and front bezel. The way i have designed it was to intentionally have the ipad slide in the charging dock when i enter the car and when im leaving the car i can simply slide it out and take it with me. Literally just takes 1 second to slide in or out. The housing that allows the ipad to rest on is made out of wood and fiberglass while the front bezel that stops it from falling forward is made purely out fo fiberglass. Hiding behind the ipad is a kenwood kdcu5dt headunit (really does improve sound quaility compared to the standard radio unit). This headunit features a full compatible ipad connection dock which allows me to play audio and charge the ipad at the same time. Can also stream audio through bluetooth which is handy when my passengers wants to use the ipad in their hands.

I have seen your work before I made mine and seen some more samples from soundmanaudio on YouTube. Was really considering doing the ipad mini but since I already own a ipad 2, I might as well just use it.

The kenwood headunit is a single din and only required to push it back a few cms. I left a gap on the housing so I can still access the headunit. Similar to the video below. At the end you see him take ipad out and use the headunit.

just got a new samsung galaxy tab S 10.5, may be a little big to fit for this application but it would probably get the most use if i could install it into my car, no idea where to start however

Use the glove compartment, I have my Ipad in the plastic tray under the glove board and just fiberglassed a holder for it. Conceeled and easy to get to. (I only use mine for music)

 

Looks sweet mate!

Samsung 10.5" - google Brainiac software then Shapeways 3D who make a plastic holder to put into your 350z - looks great 

Still looking for the speaker amp in the boot though to connect sound - using an external bluetooth speaker at the moment
