    The iPad mini dash mount kit will be for any '05 to '09 mustang owner who find themselves constantly using their iPad mini for things like music, navigation and different apps on their car ride to make it more enjoyable. Now if you are anything like me you constantly have that thing sliding everywhere down the seats, falling on the floor and having nowhere to actually mount the thing very safely, securely and conveniently. Now, all that changes with this iPad mount system here that actually attaches on to the front end of your dashboard. It's a kinda replace the area in the trim around your factory radio to easily mount it up you are using magnets. AM is giving it two out of three wrenches on a difficulty meter because there is quite a few steps involved since you will have to disconnect the factory radio. After everything is set and done is it shouldn't take longer than thirty minutes to an hour in a driveway at home. This one actually work with an iPad mini one through four so it's a huge plus for the guys with a different generations of iPad, it will still work with the same template. There is nothing else you have to buy extra to get it to work it'll snap right in a place just like any other one. So, you're actually gonna use this faceplate instead of the factory one and way this works is obviously it maintains all the holes necessary for your knobs and gadgets and what not that come from the factory. On the other hand, right here in the center there is actually going to be a magnet that holds the iPad mini into place. Whenever you wanna remove it you can just pop it off and you have access to the factory radio underneath. Definitely something that is extremally easy to navigate, extremally easy to use and doesn't require any drilling or cutting to get this thing installed. Since this does use the neodymium magnets that I did just mentioned, that is gonna bump up the price tag since it doesn't really interfere with the factory radio. So, it does bump up the price to about $350 mark. But some people, you might look at this and think that's a lot of money for just this little mount thing. But if you are looking for some convenient way to mount your iPad mini and of course having it out of the way, convenient, able to be seen very easily, like the factory navigation would, than this is gonna be a great option for guys that don't want it to stick out like a sore thumb at the same time. This installation is a little bit involved. It will require just a few simple hand tools like a ratchet and simple socket set, and a screwdriver as well for some of the faceplates stuff. What you'll need to do to start this one off is start pulling some of the trim out of the interior. Your shift knob now comes first than pop off this inner console trim, then this side panels in the foot wells, which connect to the sides of the radio area. Than you can use a screwdriver to remove a few screws on each side to pull off the entire faceplate. Than unscrew the radio head unit itself and drop it at the place. With the faceplate removed you'll have all the buttons and charger ports connected as well, which you'll need to remove and transfer over to the iPad faceplate with just a couple of bolts. With everything installed on that you can put it into place around the factory radio head unit, which you can bolt back into the factory location. From here you can tighten down the faceplate, replace all the side panels and center console trim as well as the shift knob. Put the iPad in to the place and you're good to go. Just to wrap it up here. If you're the owner of the '05 to '09 mustang you might be looking for a way to conveniently mount your iPad mini safely to the dashboard and actually have it look like it came there from a factory. If that sound like something you're looking for. The iPad mini dash mount kit will be a great alternative and it's available right here at the

    iPad Mini Dash Mount Kit. The blue tooth connectivity of your 2005-2009 Mustang's factory installed Ford Sync System or aftermarket sound system makes it simple to connect an Apple iPad Mini to your stereo, but unfortunately there is no place to safely mount your iPad. That is until now, this iPad Dash Mount Bezel installs in place of your Mustang's radio/HVAC face plate for a clean OEM appearance. But, seeing the iPad itself is only held in place with neodymium magnets it can easily be removed with no interference with the operation of your stereo or navigation systems.

    Straight Forward Installation. Installation is straight forward, but will require removing the stock radio/HVAC face plate bezel and replacing it with the one from the kit. The pre-installed neodymium magnets mounted in the bezel will keep your iPad Mini securely in place. There is no drilling or cutting required, but the installation process can take up to about two hours to complete.

    Application. This iPad Mini Dash Mount Kit is designed for use with all 2005-2009 Ford Mustangs including the V6, GT, Bullitt and Shelby GT500 models. An iPad is not included, please choose your style of iPad Mini from the options listed above.

    Is iPad included

    • Unfortunately the Alterum iPad Mini Dash Mount Kit only comes with the mount itself and does not include the iPad.

    How does the iPad connect to the radio? using the AUX port?

    Will this fit with a after market single din radio?

    • The iPad Mini Dash Mount Kit requires removal of the radio, so it will not work with an aftermarket radio installed.

    So the iPad just sits in front of the factory radio? Wonder what it looks like when it is removed. Just a recessed factory radio basically?

    • The iPad will simply fit into the bezel which is on top of the radio. The radio will simply have a different bezel around it when the iPad is not installed.

      By far the worst product I have ever bought from American Muscle. I was super sad to be let down. The quality of this product is very poor for the price I had to pay.

      Kit works great!

      This is Darren, I make these units. I’ve read the reviews and I’d like to address the issues people are having. 1.) Please make sure to follow the instructions and watch our install videos. You must use the charging cable in conjunction with the magnet to hold the ipad in place. Once you use the charging cable, you will not have any issues with it falling out. We install 1-2 of these a week at our facility and do not have any issues. 2.) Following the video, there is no need to dremel or modify the kit or anything factory. The radio needs to be adjusted to sit further back in the dash so it doesn’t hit the iPad mini.

      Ummm..... 300$? Really!!??

      Well, despite the reviews I went ahead and purchased it. It’s a great look, and it definitely makes the car look like the ipad is factory fit. However, For 300$ I really don’t like hafting to mod the mod! First off the magnet fell out, and the backing where the magnet sits was all cracked.... So I had to super glue that in place, and reinforce the back where it was all cracked. FYI it was really thin material there, maybe a millimeter of wood. The next frustrating point was that the pre-drilled holes to mount the heat adjustment unit where pre-drilled much larger than the original screws. So I had to go and find a bunch of screws to fit. On that same heating adjustment unit there are also 4 separate places to mount it on the original dash plate, them being top and bottom left, and top and bottom right. However, on mine the bottom two did not even come close to lining up. Easily about an inch or more off, hanging off the entire back plate. IE: There was nothing to drill into. This left the screw mounts from the original heating unit hanging out, which did not fit behind the left and right triangleish shaped retaining panels on either the passenger or driver side. But since I was determined, I cut some notechs into the side panels so that they could snap back into place over the screw mounts, as well as holes for the ipad usb cable to fit under the triangle shaped side panels. Last but not least the little slit that was predrilled for the charging cable to run to the ipad mini, was a bit too small.... a lot a bit to small.... so I had to redrill the hole. (This is different from the hole that I drilled in the side triangle panels.This had to be drilled in the ipad dash kit itself.) Also, on the original mustang dash plate, it had the bottom lip that connected to the center console for a flush look. This is entirely missing, so stuff can fall down under neath the center console. So you have to fill it in with something. Furthermore, other reviews say that the original double din stereo system was too big and did not fit behind it with the volume adjustment knob on. However, mine does with no problem, so it’s probably a case by case situation. Would I buy it again? Well I am a sucker for tech in cars, so probably. But after handling it I am really disappointed in the craftsmanship, and I don’t think it should be more than 150$ considering it is wood with a thin plastic laminate on top. But hey, now I had an ipad, in my car with data, gps, and audio streaming! :) But I think American muscle should work out a better deal with the company for a better price. Then it’d sell more. This is also not made by american muscle, or one of their branches, which explains why the quality is so low. I don’t write this to deter someone from buying it, but just to inform. Expect to have to do more than remove some screws, and be ready to cut/drill holes! If you want and Ipad in your car, there is no other solution. So go for it if you have 300$.

      Don't expect much

      If you sitting in a parking lot or car show, then the iPad looks great, but once you start driving the iPad will fall out from the mount. Your going to need velcro to make the iPad stay in the mount.

      Not worth the money!

      Where do i start! The fit is terrible. Cheaply made and with flimsy mounting tabs. After 2 hours of modifying with a dremal it would finally somewhat fit over the stock shaker 500 radio. Dont expect it to actually hold the tablet with the magnet, because it doesn't. I ended up adding 2 more magnets along the bottom with epoxy and it still wouldn't hold even under gentle acceleration, turning, or even hitting a bump in the road. Finally had to put velcro on the front of the radio and back of tablet just to get it to not fall off. Also comes with no installation instructions, just a link to a video on how to remove the stock piece. Very disappointed

      This is a much better install than an aftermarket radio. Use Apple Music and look up any song you want. Everything pieced together perfectly and looks very flush. Would highly recommend.
