Default [Alpine INE-Z928HD] vs. [Ipad 3]

First off, lets try to keep this civil. The teenage-level battles on this forum and ca.com are getting old.

With that said, this is a simple poll. Its about time i start modding out my new truck.

The debate:

-Alpines new 8in navigation unit (INE-Z928HD)

OR

-An Ipad 3





Pros of the alpine
-Everything is inclusive
-steering whell control integration will be easy

Cons of the alpine
-expensive
-it will be a fairly boring and straightforward install
-it wont be that unique (navi's are pretty common)





Pros of the ipad
-it would be completely removable
-it would definitely be unique
-although not inclusive, i will be able to have all the features that the navigation unit would offer
-it will eliminate the need for my ipod, which is what i play all my music through

Cons of the ipad
-Its going to be a challenge to get steering wheel controls to work. I think i have it figured out though
-it will require using external processing, which i dont mind doing
-no CDs (i dont use CDs at all, but in case i ever did, i wouldnt be able to)




Both units will require custom dash modifications due to their size. Alpine wont be making a dash kit for my truck, at least as of yet (toyota tundra)

Alongside of the units will be a complete install of course (amps, deadening, etc), but that is a mute point for this poll.




Opinions?

Prices are currently unannounced for both.

The ipad will be $500+, ans is to be released next week (probably)

Estimates for the alpine are looking around $1100+, and will be released later this year

With the extras i would need to get with the ipad, the costs will probably be similar. The ipad may be a slightly cheaper route depending on the model i want to get.

Only thing with the iPad, you will probably want a bigger memory retaining one if your eliminating all of your music devices to use it

may cost more in the end? who knows
I say iPad; that would look sweet in the tundra

You should use the poll

I've been leaning towards the ipad for a while now, but with my purchase date nearing, i thought i better get some outside opinions

How will you integrate the ipad into your system?
I mean some use a single din deck for processing.

If i couldnt to a standalone ipad install, I wouldnt even bother and just stick to my ipod with a headunit

The ipad would be standalone, have a charging source, and will connect into a processor. Depending on the processor i use, there are a few options in regards to integrating steering wheel controls. As far as amps go, they will obviously connect into the processor.

As an owner of the entire apple product line, I'd say go iPad 3.
