Ok so here it is after days of work..... The iPad install!!

I was bored with the RNSD and the RNSE didn't really inspire me either so I wanted to do something a bit different and spruce up the interior a bit. I also wanted to keep things as OEM as possible.

The iPad seemed to be the way to go as it runs all the latest stuff and is pretty much future proof for the time being. It also has a really good app called Dash Command which is basically live Vag com but with decent graphics - check it out on the app store and also TomTom for obvious reasons. These as well as many other apps would make the iPad an obvious choice.

All the iPad installs I've seen to date look pretty average so I wanted mine to be the best. They mainly look shit because of the insertion process and the fact that up until now, the "Home" button was the only way to get home, now a five finger pinch does the same so the need for an aperture to allow access to the Home button is now not necessary.

So here goes....

Started by getting a second hand centre console unit from the forum and cutting out the mounting point for the double din unit



Then cut down the front lip all the way round to about 3mm



I made sure this was constant with little tolerance to make sure the final piece would sit nicely up against it.





Next was setting out the insert



This insert was then built up using MDF layers to one constant thickness of about 18mm, ready to be shaped to fit the curved front. This was constantly planed and sanded to fit the console perfectly and guide runners were then fitted to enable the iPad to slide in from the side.





An aperture was designed in the right hand side to accept the iPad dock which will be used to charge and connect the iPad once it is installed.



A quick test fit to ensure that it fits perfectly...





A slot could then be marked out on the left hand side of the console. This is to allow the iPad to be inserted from the side therefore alleviating the issue of front mounting and the shite designs that most installers have chosen.



The dock had to be slightly modified as the leading corner - when laid flat - hit the flat surface first therefore holding the iPad up slightly, this corner/edge was removed allowing the iPad to sit flat in the profile.





The dock was mounted into the profile using Wurth bumper repair kit which is basically two-part liquid plastic that cures in about ten minutes. It is immensely strong when bonding two semi-porous surfaces.
A few holes were drilled and the shiny surface scored to provide a key for the liquid plastic to grab in to.



Then the iPad was slid into place. This held the dock in exactly the right position, ready for the liquid plastic to be pumped around it.





The back piece which holds the iPad in was covered in felt as were all the inside edges of the profile to ensure that the iPad was protected when sliding in and out.



The profile was then painted black for my own preference of keeping things tidy looking, no other reason!

The Chippy

Me being me, I thought that I'd have a go of carbon fibre skinning - how hard can it be?

Pretty taxing was the answer, so after a couple of goes, I got my mate at C6 Carbon Mods to do it for me!!! Defeat, but for a good cause so I didn't mind!!

Here's some shots of my attempts..







Anyway, next on the agenda was to transfer the button and switches from the centre console to another position so I didn't lose any functionality. I decided to bring them down to the centre console between the seats.
First off was to cut the magnesium casing which holds the cup holder, hazard switch and esp/fog lights switches.



The cigarette lighter and small pen holder thingy was in the position that I deemed correct for the switches so this was removed and relocated too!
The hazard/ESP/Fog lights switch casing was then relocated to the original position of the cigarette lighter and plastic welded in place.







The small pen holder compartment thingy next to the handbrake was the next obvious place to relocate the cigarette lighter to so some small cuts and a small amount of farting around was need to make it fit correctly.





Next up was the two iPhone dock needed for my install, this will become apparent later on.
A simple set up, a wooden double dock with flocked interior to ensure no scratches and to keep the phones guided into their charging points. Charging points simply glued into position and leave to set whilst inserted into the phones whilst inserted into the dock... if you know what I mean!!













Nice tolerance on the fit meant I could hold it upside down and the phone wouldn't fall out.



Next up was cladding the top of the centre unit with all of the apertures cut into one piece. Harder than it sounds to make sure that everything was perfect with a 1.5mm gap around for consistency.
This was then two-part filled and rubbed down to blend in seamlessly with the existing unit.













This was now ready for paint to match the OEM finish. This got sent off to the local trimmers for them to do their thing.

I then received a teaser shot of the carbon skinning which was not ready but had been laid up ready for a few coats of resin....



Next up on the agenda was the HVAC unit. Obviously everything else on the centre console had gone or been moved but there was nowhere really for the HVAC unit to go, so it was to be incorporated into the same centre console, just in a different position.
The issue with this is that it was just too tall to go under the iPad. So off I went with the modifications again....

The top had to be removed to allow enough space for the iPad - so I cut it off!!



You can see from this angle that the PCB sits higher than the level I needed so I had to cut off everything apart from that for obvious reasons!! I would modify the iPad profile when it returned, to fit over the protruding PCB.



The front edge of the HVAC with the curve on then had to be let into the centre console so it sat correctly.





The centre unit then made a return...





I then noticed that everything apart from the ashtray had been re-used. All that is except the cup-holder. I then had an idea...



Then I made a surround for it to disguise it further and finish it off correctly...







With everything ready for the install, the carbon profile then turned up after a long wait!! But that's what you have to do when you want things looking like this...





The install then begun its final stage







And finally in the car...





The Chippy

The only thing is that the carbon used for the iPad surround is different to the carbon in the car so I'll be getting the trims re-done soon to match the iPad install.
The Chippy

The iPad connects to the headunit which is in the glove box, and one iPhone connects via bluetooth to the head unit too.
The iPad is also connected to the wifi OBD II unit for live diagnostics and live logging.
It is also connected to the other iPhone on a local area network for full browsing capabilities.
The iPad is also connected to a mifi for use with the TomTom app.
This means everything is connected to everything else, so usual bluetooth parrot connection to the head unit etc.
Both iPhones and iPad are also all on charge all the time they are plugged into their respective docks.

Attention to detail is what makes/breaks an install like that, and yours is as good as it gets.

Major kudos.

Excellent work Nick with great attention to detail,well done.
trizzle899

Well impressed with this!!! As said, the attention to detail is incredible. Excellent work!!

One question... when you turn the car off, have you been able to make it so the iPad turns off automatically, or do you have to remove it and turn it off manually?

I have the iPad set to never go to sleep, but if it was set to do so, it would turn off with the ignition as it is powered through the head unit.
To be honest, I take it out anyway just for security reasons! I designed it to be able to remove it easily just for this purpose.

2 phone cradles mainly because I have two phones!! But they do have their uses as one is used to connect via Bluetooth to the radio and stream Internet radio if needed and the other is to provide a local network for the iPad. It was also supposed to provide a 3G connection to wifi only iPad for the TomTom app but it doesn't work so I have to use a mifi dongle instead.

I can stream music from all three devices although the iPad is hard wired to which gives better quality.

One word for that.

Craftsmanship.
Ash25

Wow that is brilliant. Your workmanship and attention to detail are outstanding!

Without doubt, the best iPad install I have ever seen mate. Did you say you could take the iPad out easily etc?

For music do you use the iPad or the head unit etc? Just wondered what you did for volume, radio etc? I have to say it looks perfectly stock, and would be amazing if Audi made something like that as an option, it's that good.

I especially like the relocation of the cup holder, that's just what I was thinking of doing, and seeing it done, I am more tempted with it. How did you attach it to the armrest and does the handbrake come into contact at all? I assume you made a frame for the cup holder to 'sit' inside?

This is what interior modification is all about, detail and finish, awesome work.

Got the TomTom app

Not sure what the trimmers used to blend the centre console in but I did the cup holder under the arm rest. I tried a few different things to try and get the leather look. The one that came out the best was using an aerial paint but making it spit by holding down the nozzle very gently - thus is obviously the last thing you want when actually painting something but works a treat here!! Spit all over until there's a random-ish covering then let it dry then paint over the top normally, and that's about it! Surprisingly good result!

The iPad simply slides out of the side.
I have a head unit in the glovebox which is connected to the original Bose set-up. Volume can be controlled via the head unit or any of the devices.

The cup holder is plastic welded directly to the bottom of the arm rest then I made a small casing to round it and finished it with the method mentioned above to try and match it in as best I could.the handbrake does touch it when pulled up, but I have to lift the armrest up to get my phones out so I just don't push it all the way back down again, and obviously vice versa when I get back in again, the handbrake is off so its not too much of an issue.

Awesome work mate!
Is that RS4 logo the one I made?
I reckon you could do a really smart home screen working around the icons

I removed the cigarette lighter assembly, used a double USB cigarette lighter charger and plugged both into there, then taped it securely as to not short it out on something tucked under the centre console or let the charger or leads vibrate loose.

I used the parrot microphone and tucked it up into the small space in the centre front light cluster with the microphone pointing down through the small vent in the middle. This was then connected to the head unit by changing the plug, to enable the parrot system to work through the stereo too. It quietens the music down just as a regular parrot does, but without having the proxy little microphone hanging down!!

The only problem with that is that it's a permanent live so I have to remember to take my phones out. Not that they'll cane the battery but still drawing along with countless other bits in the car!  The iPad is on a switch live from the ignition through the head unit so the power to that switches off with the key.

It was simply stuck on with liquid plastic. So easy to do!

After that you can fabricate a simple thin MDF surround and then texture and paint it and slide it into position. It was the easiest part of the install to do!

I am an iSheep first and foremost.

The iPad is just the best of all worlds in terms of multimedia and just plain usability so it was a bit of a no brainer for me. A headunit can easily cost you lots more than the price of an iPad and what does that really give you? Not a lot. I obviously still have a head unit to take care of the connectivity but it's a non-mech unit which is hidden away in the glove box. £70 for that and the iPad I had knocking around anyway.
The Tom Tom app is £50 which is plenty less than an actual TomTom unit so another saving and a much better display too without the need for a shitty windscreen mounted box with trailing wires.

All the iPad installs I've seen are pretty average and all look like iPad installs due to the aperture for the home button being cut out which is something that I very much wanted to avoid as it gives the game away. iOS 6 (or maybe even the last of the iOS 5 updates) gave us a five finger pinch to get home which means you don't have to use the button.

I also wanted it easily removable, something which every install I have seen, doesn't achieve, in fact quite the opposite - they look shit and they are easily removable or they look slightly better but there's some crap way of getting out. Mine just easily slides to the left to remove it, but it is held in tight enough by the felt lined and backed assembly that it would never just slide out of it's own accord. The back of the assembly is not only slightly sprung to apply pressure to the back of the iPad for a perfect Apple OEM slide fit and feel but the centre section is also removable to allow access behind the dash - just incase...!

It was either going to be the best iPad install I'd seen or I wouldn't have bothered. I hate half arsed attempts at anything.

For those who have asked about the way it is inserted/removed, here's a quick video.

In the video you will notice the backing which is black felt (un-hoovered, shabby I know but I haven't cleaned the car since I installed it....) which is also lined around every edge and face that the iPad touches.
The centre section is removable to allow access to behind the install for obvious reasons - another simple but effective little touch which has already come into play as one of my 80 crimped wires was not a solid connection and had to be re-crimped.... Easy access made it a doddle, thankfully!!
