Custom iPad Mini Install Polaris Slingshot

We recently had a customer come to us wanting a couple of unique things. He wanted an iPad Mini installed into his Polaris Slingshot but in a way that it sat back far enough that it could get some protection from the glare of the sun. Also, he wanted it to be secure. So, when he left his slingshot unattended he would have to worry about coming out to it with the iPad mini missing. So, we came up with a custom slide solution. This accomplished everything he wanted along with a stock look. The ipad can not be removed unless the glove box is unlock and lowered. Without it being unlocked the ipad can only be slide partially out of the mount. Leaving it secure in the slingshot until the glove box is unlocked.

He also wanted a way to charge the iPad and have it play on a clean source that he could still EQ the sound. We recommended a pioneer radio,the DEH8700BH, we mounted it behind the iPad in a custom ABS plastic mount. Then we added an external IR steering wheel controller that allows for him to cleanly turn up and down the audio while using a hard wired connection to get the best sound possible. When we were finished it looked like it was stock from Polaris, or so the customer said. We will take that as a huge complement. It is what we specialize in, OEM integration, with fit and finish.
