If you loved the idea of having an iPad fitted in your car dashboard, but were too lazy to try out the D.I.Y manual guide, Scosche may have an answer for you. The Scosche iKit accessory for iPad can replace your car stereo with a ball joint mount, 30-pin dock connector and audio input where you can easily install an iPad – both in landscape and portrait orientation.
Since the iPad 3G already has built-in GPS (with Google Maps), iPod and Youtube, you can easily use it as a high profile alternative to the built-in car stereo. The price of this kit is expected to be around $200 to $250, depending on the type and make of the car.
Here is a video which shows iKit installed in a late-model Subaru STi.
Now the question is, will you be willing to shed some 800 (iPad 3G + iKit) odd bucks to replace your car stereo with an iPad? Let us know in the comments section below.
