Samsung Galaxy Tab 7" Commodore Install
I've been reading up on installing an android tablet and using it as a car dash and thought I'd post something of my own.
I recently brought a Galaxy Tab and am looking at installing it in my VT Commodore,
currently its just got the stock double din stereo in it,
There seems to be a few different ways to go about it so I pulled the stereo out today and had a look around.
The tablet fits perfectly in the double din space and doesn't slide to the back because of the brackets inside the hole. The only problem is there isn't enough room to connect the charger or aux output. I was thinking of using A2DP for music but I'm not to sure about the quality it will provide, which leads me to my next problem,
I still want to have a cd/radio unit somewhere, if possible maybe in the glove box or passenger console. The boots always an option but I'd prefer something thats easier to access while driving.
My other option would be to install a single din cd unit and mount the tablet using the spare din slot above. Using a bracket or playing around with the samsung galaxy car mount so the tab is sitting in front of the cd unit. (There isn't enough space to place it above due to the AC controls.)
I read today about a tablet install using a dvd drive but this won't work in my case as when the tablets in landscape the chargers on the right and headphones on the left. Is it worth cutting holes in the interior to connect these up?
Ive included some pictures of the empty din slot, the tablet just sitting in the slot and a photo showing how it won't sit when the chargers connected.
Any help or guidance would be very much appreciated :)
