    using Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) I believe this will work

    It says it acts like a standard HID device which Android now supports. I will be purchasing this and testing it out on my N7 tablet.

    My plan is to write an android app that will make use of the "Made for iPod" interface that is already available in most cars and extend/hack the Apple Accessory Protocol for other controls.

    Still learning Android programming - So I don't know if this is even feasible or how long it will take. Wish me luck

    You are going to need more than luck my friend. I think that to emulate Made for iPod interface requires special keys and such from Apple. This allows Apple to control who is licensed and such.

    No. You need all that if you are developing an accessory for an iDevice. In this case, we make the accessory (i.e HU) think there is an iPod at the other end.

    I found an implementation where a Beagleboard/ITX board was used.

    Hi Folks
    I am a complete novice in this and would love to get some guidance for a similar setup. All I am hoping for is an Android tablet in the car mainly for Nav (may be for music and some apps) but I am really interested in getting a backup camera to work with the tablet. I have searched and seems like IP camera is the only way to make backup camera work with a tablet. Can someone please help me with some hopefully simple queries
    1. How to setup IP camera to be displayed on an Android device?
    2. Does one have to have internet connection for the IP camera to interface with Tablet or signal gets transmitted by merely having a wireless router in the car with both Tablet and Camera connected to it?
    3. Is there any direct wired connection (Via USB or AV input) possible between Camera and Tablet?
    4. Also which IP camera would you recommend. Most seem so bulky, would they fit properly on the license plate?

    (I dont mind changing apps manually on the Tablet and at this moment dont quite need steering wheel control).

    You would use a wifi router then access the camera via a web page. Create a shortcut on Your home screen for that page for one click access.

    Most are too bulky to mount to License plate.

    I have heard that most android devices do not support web cam via usb probably because they have 1 or two built in.

    Cheers

    Thanks for a prompt response. So just to clarify, internet connection isnt required for the IP camera to interface with the tablet?
