Default Ipad Mini In dash - 1999 Toyota 4Runner :)

Hey guys,

many of you know that people have been installing ipads in the dashes of vehicles for a coupla years now, this trend was accelerated when the mini came out last year.

Low and behold, we finally got around to do such an install

The requirements of this customer is a bit different than our typical client. She did not want or need any type of audio system upgrade, rather, she wanted to able to utilize the tablet for her audio books and other non audio related functions such as maps and navigation.

So lets get started, this build is 100 percent Joey while i was working on the jetta sportwagen, so i will try my best to interpret his pictures. hehe

Goals:

1. to integrate the ipad mini into the dash in a clean, OEM like manner

2. to allow full control of the audio system via the ipad and retain all oem functionality (buttons, climate control etc)

3. to be able to easily remove and attach the ipad mini

so lets get started.

we forgot to take a picture of the stock dash, so i pulled one off the web:



Joey then started taking things apart to see what can be moved and how best to fit the ipad.



after quite a bit of measuring, he decided on a course of action, and the first step is to move the factory climate control module upward by an inch or so. so the dash panel was cut and resecured:



it is bonded to the bezel via plastic welding



to accomodate this change and the need to recess a headunit (see later), a portion of the oem vents had to be cut and reduced, so Joey came up with a blanking plate, trimmed the vents, and sealed it with silicone:





to allow full access of the radio via the ipad, we chose to go with a Sony MEX-GS600BT headunit because of its unique App Remote function.

here is joey wiring up and organizing the harness, again no amps, no speakers, such a headunit replacement





then he started on the process of forming a trim panel for the sony headunit which also has to double for a ipad mounting solution infront of it. basically recessing the headunit.



the trim ring around the ipad was created with some prevision router work:



and here is the array of neodymium magnets that will be embedded into the mounting frame that will secure the ipad, there are also a few magnets on the bottom side:



then the process of blending the trim panel to the sony headunit began, using Sonus Audio Mass:



If you look at the original picture of the dash, you will realize that the buttons controlling his defroster, transmission and rear windows (among other things) is no longer there. it had to be relocated and joey had the task now of grafting those buttons down to the shifter trim panel:



he also built a lil holder for an IR repeater eye as the sony remote control will allow access to the unit even with the ipad in place, since this is a car that did not come with steering wheel remote control.



after a bunch of molding, sanding, here is a rough layout of the top and bottom portions:



more filler was used to blend the two layers of the top trim panel together:







and then blended into the oem dash bezel. here are the two almost finished pieces side by side:



The customer indicated that she wanted to get rid of the faux wood, so the pieces were primed and painted black:



the remainder of the IR repeater eye being prepped to be installed into the finished lower trim panel:



So here is the finished product.

the ipad fits perfect in the dash, held in snugly via magnets. but is loose enough to be removed via small suction cup. i circled the IR repeater eye that was installed in the lower console, this takes the signal from the sony remote and projects it into an output eye above the sony headunit (see later pics)



The ipad works great using the sony app, controlling everything from source changing to BT phone contro...i will just let the pics do the talking now











here is a shot of the sony headunit after you take the ipad out, it then just functions totally as a normal headunit. i tried to get a picture of the IR eye but its hard to see, its right below the red arrow in the second picture note that joey made sure even this recessed headunit mounting looks clean and professional





and finally, a close up of the relocated buttons on the shifter trim panel:



so thats it, the car left yesterday and the customer was beyond happy. I was never much of an tablet in dash person but after seeing this, i am getting ideas for my own car

cheers,

Bing

NICE job looks really nice - and that sony headunit is key - most affordable option for a tuner / 3 sets of preouts - volume - etc.
other wise you spend alot more on the istremer and audio control parts

really looks good and clean !!

Thanks guys! A few corrections...
--The picture with the single little piece that bing referred to as the holder for the IR repeater was actually the handsfree mic mounting piece that I trimmed before it was attached to the windshield.
--The picture that says the remainder of the IR being prepped is the board that had the light for the OEM security and passenger seatbelt warning. Those LED's were removed from the circuit board and wires were used to extend them to fit into one of the OEM knockout plates. I took LED holders from some spare alarm leds and used them to mount the leds in the panel and look "finished"


Niebur3 those are rare earth magnets from harbor freight.. The picture will show how many and where I put the magnets..

I wanted to make sure that the magnets were as close as possible so I epoxied them to the pan in the recesses I made. I wanted them to have as much pull as possible.

man... this looks really good. and I like the idea of having the headunit behind the ipad to use as needed. mind if I send you my dash piece and an iPad mini?


quick question: is the display on the ipad showing the features of the deck? for example, the radio station... is that being pulled from the headunit or is there an app on the ipad? I'm assuming you guys have the headunit running in 'app mode'. i'm not too up on how these two are integrated.

Great job.

An iPad normally requires about 2.1 amps to charge. Does the Sony HU USB port have enough current?

Erin,

the sony app remote works, well sorta the opposite way than the pioneer app radio.

where as the app radio allows you to control the apps of the PHONE FROM the radio, the sony thing is designed to allow you control the RADIO from the phone or tablet.

to that end, it displays all the vital functions of the headunit into a nice gui on the tablet, radio, cd, bt hf calling, etc etc. it works pretty well when joey was playing with it.

this video by our good freinds in FL shows how it works the one difference is that our much older car (99 4runer) did not come with steering wheel controls, and instead uses an IR eye and the sony's own remote control if we want to make changes without touching the ipad.

No doubt the cleanest IPAD/HU combo install I've seen yet.

Could you please if you have them closer photo's of the plug
and how it routes or exits your trim ring? That is what has me
most hung up on installing either Apple or Samsung. I wouldn't
mind it more hard mounted, the plug that is and slide the devise
in through the side
