Ok I'm going to say it.

That is fucking useless, ugly and a waste of time and energy.

So you have an iPad where your stereo should be. Then you need to install a hidden stereo deck so the iPad can drive the car speakers / amps. iPad is not set up for changing volume etc whilst driving so you will be looking away from the road to just change the volume or track. You will also have a hidden stereo so you won't be able to easily change modes (AM/FM), stations, or heaven forbid play a CD. You will have a massive theft target as people will see there could be an iPad in the car. And all this will cost $eleventy billion dollars to install for all your mates to laugh at you.

Or you could just buy a standard double DIN screen designed to work in a car with an ipod cable attached and plug in your ipad/iphone/ipod and enjoy the music along with all the functions of a radio and a cd player!

Yeah that's fair enough, just after using the touchscreen on the iPhone and iPad most other screens seem to lag. (Haven't had a look at any new ones) but the last alpine one I had was around the same price and seemed laggy compared to them. as this whole setup would cost so I'd def consider it!
