My Navi Solution

Well I ordered my 5.0 back in January and drove it home May 2nd. The original order included a Navigation package. Someone in the chain messed the order and it came with a backup camera and a mirror monitor. PO ed but didn’t want to reorder.
Well I have mounted an IPad in its place and moved the Sync center stack to an overhead. It’s still work in progress, I have to add a LED dome lights inside the Plexiglass, some buttons, and I will be adding a bluetooth ODBII and software for realtime diags. I’ll fill the details later but here are some pics.

How is the overhead at night? Looks like it could be distracting.

Reaching up to the over head is like reaching up to some controls in a jet or something. EPIC

Not distracting for me even at full brightness. It dims with the other instruments.

BTY, no ones asked yet, but yes, you loose the CD slot. The main radio is still in the dash in a slightly offset position. The main panel is just a pass thru slot for the cds. I never used it once. All the music options, and video. Im just piping the audio to the aux input of the sync radio. "waiting for dock extension cable"

The display was moved to the bottom under the ipad. It's behind the plexiglass. View angle is not bad, just got to get used to new position.

It's gotta be awkward to use any of those buttons no?

Why was nav so necessary?

I mean I can appreciate your effort, but definitely not for me.

It's not only the navi, but all the options available on the Ipad. I can remote control my home, see cameras, see traffic maps, read mail stopped in traffic, all on a large display that i can see.
But, youre right, it's not for everyone.

Well, right- but being that you wanted the navigation- were you just going to retrofit it out or keep it and not even think twice about swtiching everything around?

I know that the ipad alone trumps the OEM features, but was that your goal all along?


Plus what's at the end of 'roof stack'- the shiny part?

That looks pretty cool ... but with loss of some functions ...

I talked to SCOSCHE yesterday ... they said their install kit for 2010+ Mustangs should FINALLY be available after this years SEMA ... end of November.

If the car would have come with the nav, I wouldn't have changed it. My first option was an aftermarket radio. There is only one company (Metro) that makes a replacement stack that would accept a radio. It comes with a new lcd display. It wasn't very attractive. Plus the audio can of worms. The way I have done it is to use all the original sync equipment just relocated.
The curved plexiglass at the end is for the dome lights. The spot where the display was Is fitted with a new piece of plexi and will be for the 6 lighted buttons for dome and other functions.

A+ for innovation

The iPad install is f'n kick ***.

The rest I'm still undecided on.

I would have probably made it so the iPad replaces everything except the climate controls.
