OK I had this discussion with a brother of min and he wants to go from a stock stereo in a 07 Malibu and throw a 1200 HU in it and, add subs amp etc.
The question for this post is in this digital age who would buy a 1200 stereo if you can buy a ipad carputer or tablet that can do what this radio can do and more
Here's the link the stereo

you are right about the limitless features of an ipad being nice to have in a car its still not made to be in a car. a car is the worst environment other than maybe outer space to have an electronic device.
the 1200 dollar double din will probably sound a thousand times better than having an ipad linked to amps through a whole host of audio adapters. not to mention issues with ground loops from the power adapter that a lot of people have when the do the same thing with a laptop.
ipads arent designed to be used safely in a car while driving.

Your right about the ground loop. But you just have to find a good grounding spot. As for the adapters and cords a standard 3.5 mm / RCA adapter and spilting that doss the trick. Also ipads have the large buttons
