So alot of you aren't concerned about the headunits getting drenched if your riding topless and a storm hits ?
And what would any of you do if that happened ?
|08-25-2014 10:08 AM|
A few questions for you - rough idea on cost? I'm not looking to replace my mount but inquiring minds want to know
Also, how do you charge yours - do you pull it out and charge it or are there wires run behind the fabrications.
Looks sweet my friend...well done.

That is awesome!

iPad Head Unit
Been meaning to post some pics of this for a while now. I did a lot of researching around and finally settled on this setup. If anyone is interested in doing something similar just let me know. I can point you in the same direction I went. There are actually several companies out there that can do some fabrication for this to work. I've had this for about a year now and it's worked awesome!
I wired it into my stock radio so everything on the iPad goes through the stereo system, including googles/apple's map navigation. I decided on the cellular version of the iPad so I can listen to my iTunes radio while I'm out and about.
It's way over the top but it's fun and unique. Oh and I painted the dash to match the exterior color. Will probably paint some trim pieces on the right side to balance it out.

What part of Jersey?
The top is out of Canada.....her is a link to his site and you can read all about it in threads...they are made by a one man show (Tim).....they arent cheap and they take sometimes 2-3 months to get....but once you get, it turns heads and is very functional......people have complained about it leaking or flapping....its as quite if not more than my mopar soft top and does not leak at all....i think its one of those thing where you only hear the negative experience with products online but not the positive....because its a fact that the net is where people go to gripe about stuff...

The Ipad mount is a custom mount from cop 4x4.....im not 100% sure but I almost certain they don't sell or make them anymore...and when they did, I dont think they made many. I heard they were going to make one (or did) for an Ipad Mini which would be great...i have one and would probably swap out....i love the ipad....have maps, itunes, tunein radio app for any stations, and use it as well with a GPS app.
I have a hardtop and a offroad heros softtop....i have the softtop on 4-5 months of the year and never have a problem....and im not going to start and live my life dictated by people stealing things, terrorists, etc....and if they do try to enter my jeep from my house I see it...I support and exercise my 5th amendment rights

But in all honesty... just a hard top and park it in my garage at home. Otherwise at the office its not a bad area... and even if it is, its just material items. I tend to turn down the music when I get near my destination as to avoid any advertising. Even with the top off I dont worry. If someone wants to go through the trouble of getting it out... good for them. Insurance will cover the replacement.

|S3AWOLF||You people must live in some nice gated communities. Running flashy stuff like that where I live is a sure way to get my soft top sliced up. If I don't have anything inside they want I get to keep it and a $1000 top.|

|trumpet444||I'm definitely looking forward to this JeepAudio HU and its great ya'll are at least into the 4.x version of Android. I think the Parrot Asteroid runs something like a skinned version of 2.3 which was new, I think, around the summer of 2010. I use and like iOS but I love android. There are pros and cons to each OS but you can't beat the massive amount of flexibility and OS customization (rooted or not) with android vs. iOS|

I just bought an Alpine double DIN unit to replace my 430N. (I need HD Radio for work.)
I'm curious about the PAC interface mentioned earlier that allows you to retain your steering wheel controls, factory amp, etc. How well does it work? It's getting mixed reviews at Crutchfield's website.
One of the complaints is you lose the ability to fade from front to back.
I'm hoping to be able to connect up to the factory amp because I have the factory Alpine sound and would like to be able to power the factory sub with minimum hassle.

Here's my install...Parrot Asteroid SMART
My home screen
After hitting the bubble for the app drawer (you could see on the right side in the homescreen image)
Backup camera launched interdependently of using reverse (comes on automatically still when in reverse)
Torque pro running
Radio tuner screen
And the custom sub/amp box I built. Downfiring the 10w3v3 so I dont lose the bass when the top is off and amps mounted under the top to keep them away from water if any gets in the tub. Resin'd for water resistance. Ignore the dirtyness as I tend to take the path less traveled with open windows or the top off... also going to be covering the box with a DiY MOLLE strap cover for additional organization. Tub will soon be lined with bedliner as well.

Ive got the Parrot Asteroid SMART which I am not overly thrilled about (but mainly nitpicking). Their support is terrible and I have been considering a change but I have to know if the product is backed and worthwhile to throw more cash at a different product. Their only benefit is that it is an actual manufacturing company that isnt just re-packaging.
Do you have more info on your OS integration as well? I am taking a wild stab that you have the basic drivers for the radio module etc and will be maintaining the upgrades to those drivers and compatibility as the OS updates? Plans on providing updates to use Google Auto or Apple CarPlay?
|08-11-2014 10:41 PM|
as much as i would love to throw in a double din aftermarket Nav head unit, i think it might be overkill considering i tend to leave my jeep topless half the year. i believe the south florida sun would basically over power screen with glare.
So is the only way to remove your factory unit involve removing half the dash???
|08-11-2014 01:56 PM|
...then an aftermarket head unit .
...then an aftermarket amp or two and a separate sub if you don't already have one.

|Jeeping_aint_easy||I am a little disappointed with the stereo system in my new jeep so I want to upgrade it. I know im going to polyfill the sound bar for better sound but i was wondering if replacing just the speakers would make a big difference or if i should go for a aftermarket HU too. any suggestions?|
|08-11-2014 07:38 AM|
|Hewesyourdaddy||Any idea of an estimated price? This is something I'd be very interested in.|
|08-10-2014 06:44 PM|
Are you gonna leave us hanging, or tell us who makes that head unit? I like it!
|02-28-2014 08:44 AM|
I also have this headunit set up. Works great, very responsive, and has a clean look to it. I am very happy with it
