Also what additional parts did you use, how is it powered, what happens if you need to physically hit the power button on the iPad? Are there any rattles? Did you have to get new trim pieces or did you cut your existing ones? Is this reversible or did it require modifying something permanently?

I'd miss the hard buttons, but...

How does it connect to SYNC? Does the stereo route through Bluetooth or hardline? Can you use the steering wheel buttons too?

He kept the sync display and put it below. It will act as it would stock. You could hard line a 3.5MM jack to the aux port or use bluetooth. I doubt the sound quality would be noticeably different. Essentially it looks like you would use the sync monitor just for climate and then use the tablet for, guages/obd2 scanning, media, apps, etc.



I am concerned what happened to the 2 vents, are they being rerouted or just closed off? I don't know how much that is going to throw off the cars ability to heat/cool and I def. wouldn't want hot air blowing on my tablet if it is open behind.

That is sweet so where is the step by step with pictures and stuff?

I was going to to this but leave everything alone and put a 4" screen in the space below where it's empty stock. Then connect an old phone or raspberry pi to it for always on gauges. I guess we just have to decide if his way is worth losing our vents and mechanical buttons for climate/radio. I would be very hopeful he shares pictures/videos.

Wow. Amazing job. Fits perfectly.
Have you lightened your seat colour or is it just the light?

Hi disciple83, yes all steering wheel buttons and features are maintained, it is integrated into sync3, the ipad pops out so you can use it elsewhere but when it is plugged in to the car just like any other iphone or ipad it shows up under music sources in the sync system so you can play the music / sound in the car speakers etc. and it charges also while in the dash. they said i cant post video links yet but search you tube for: ford fusion ipad and you will see them.

Along the edge bezels of the iPad, any thoughts to wiring the stock mechanical buttons, it looks wide enough. The LED cutouts will be tough to get perfect.
