    Idea for reventon digital dash, "there could be an app for that"

    had a mad idea the other day when stuck in traffic on the way to work, that I thought I would run by you all.
    the new Ipad has a bright, crisp high definition screen that could be mounted in to the instrument panel, if someone could program up an interface to it using the SDK and find a way of getting the signals from the senders to it, this would look absolutely mint!!!
    It would have the advantage of a really quick boot up compared to some of the pc based digital dashes.
    well that was my mad idea, feel free to flame it or if you are in the know about programming for the iphone/ipad let us know whats possible or not.

    regards shane

    I think that is a great ideal. I will be making a custom dash for my vendetta and will look into it.

    hehe way to expensive.

    An better idea would be to use a cheap wince based device from china. BUT just think about the startup time.

    Yes i also did that. http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/ is a good community if you want to do it on a xp basis but I wouldnt recommend it. 1-3 Seconds? From Standby or what?

    I would really go with Win CE.

    There are number of different self enclosed computer based radios/GPS/etc head units which are based on WinCE in 1 or 2 DIN formats. Majority of them have Bluetooth and USB ports and all 99.99% of them have dual video capability. For anyone that has some time on their hands and have some programming and electronics knowledge can add sensor pod via the USB port to be universal or wiredirectly into the I2C bus internally to the unit and use the secondary video port for dash display.
