During my trip through the Mojave off roading, I noticed that two of the guys used iPads as a GPS instead of a more expensive alternative. Seeing as I'm low on cash and already have an iPad 2 that I got for free (thanks brother!), I figured I might as well use it. I asked them and they're using an external antenna connected thru bluetooth and an app called MotionX GPS HD [ame="http://www.amazon.com/GNS-5870-MFI-Receiver-iPhone/dp/B004289ZW0/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1334116121&sr=8-7&t=f15for-20"]Amazon.com: GNS 5870 MFI GPS BT Receiver for iPod, iPhone and iPad: Car Electronics[/ame] Thanks to the video below, I decided to tackle the task of making my own mount [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSnIXfoSU6I&feature=player_embedded[/ame] Since I have an automatic, the logical place for me to mount it is on the floor. I have a set of Explorer buckets and a shorty console in my truck, so the area right in front of it is a great place for this to go. The little black cubby below mounts to the floor with four screws, and once it's removed will be where this little console goes. I know my truck is filthy, oh well. So far, my materials list is short, I've spent $8 in wood from Lowes. I have 1 .75"x1.25"x48" piece that will be a trim piece that both surrounds the iPad and holds it to the mount. I also have a .5"x2ftx4ft piece of particle board that will make up the rest of this thing. In the bottom picture above, the iPad is sitting roughly in the center of what will be the top piece of the mount. I made a paper template in the truck that measures roughly 10.5" wide and 8" long. The width is about 1/4" wider per side than the airbag switch and ash tray opening. I have no clue what I am going to wrap this in, maybe suede or black headliner material. I'm really not sure yet.
