I had a problem with alternator noise in sound and had to use a 12 to 220v converter to get rid of the problem. So it's like charging it at home. My other tablet (the 10 inch) didn't had this problem. This tablet fit's like a factory made thing becouse if it's size. I made 2 brackets behind it to keep it in place. 2 apps needed, one for saving power and other one for let the tablet stay on when charging. I chek that and put it here later.
I can't use the consult Bluetooth adapater becouse of my aftermarket ECU.
if you buy a tablet with bluetooth in it you don't need anything els to conact it.
hope this helps. Don't mind my english

defenitly watch this.

can't you just load the tablet with music? Seems crazy switching to a bog standard headunit now.

I've installed my Tab 2 bud, works brilliant with the 4 channel amp i purchased with Bluetooth receiver, so i can just stream to the amp without any AUX /Head jack, moved the heater controls in place of the Ashtray and moved the cig lighter into the arm rest with USB cable connected.

Ive actually just ordered a "Nexus 7" Tablet now to replace the Tab 2, as there is a ROM/OS called "AutoDroid" which makes it a full car friendly usable device as per attached.

Got a Nexus 7 off eBay for 50 quid, so cheaper than buying double din

Ordered 1 of these also https://www.google.je/search?q=RTL28...ased+USB+DVB-T

Along with a OTG split cable which will enable charging of device and the FM dongle for FM hopefully..

Please let me know if you can find a way to make the FM radio work with the tablet.

I soldered extension cables to it (30 cables ) but if there is a adapter lead extension let us know. Many people asked me and i didn't know if there is any to buy.

The wife will divorce me if she sees one more drup of epoxy in th eliving room.
i will look into this becouse many people has asked me if i can make some more.
If i can find a place/workshop and the time then yes.

What i have learned: It is very hard to keep the carbon structure in the right way. once you lay the carbon down there is no going back. If i am going to do this many more times for you guys, then i have to get a vacuum pump.

i will look into this.

This is exactly what I'm after - just didn't fancy soldering so many cables.

Did you buy one or make it?

Found something a bit rare and now it matches my cluster. Put some leds in it and it looks beautiful.

Yes with real carbon fibre and epoxy. Not the fake carbon wrap. Looks good i think for my first attempt at home.



Im trying to do the same, ordered stuff already and testing now on some bits and bobs i have laying around yours look reallygood!
