Start with a Helix USB Input HEC:Hello everybody.
I have the idea to use the Ultra without a head unit. I want to use the mini Ipad on the dash as music source. Do you guy's know if that something that can be done?
HEC HD-AUDIO USB-INTERFACE - DSP ULTRA

Then depending on the iPad get an adapter:

USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter
USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter lets you connect your USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) enabled Mac to a HDMI display, standard USB device, and charging cable. Buy now at apple.com.
Then get a long USB A to USB mini cable to reach from adapter to DSP input.
*seperate usb cable is required for charging purposes. Connects from a USB A or C power source to a Lightning or USB C port on the adapter (depending on iPad).
Also might want to get a Helix URC or Director remote to switch between presets and control digital volume along with Bass gain.
