I built it while I was away on a travel assignment last summer and had lots of free time, but unfortunately didn't take too many pictures of creating it.
    By purchasing a fascia kit made for a double din head unit, then using epoxy to glue parts that would normally screw or "click" together, I had the initial mold. After this, it was simply a matter of using my dremel to cut down what wasn't needed. As you can see from the pictures, my method of holding it all together is rather rubbish - a bunch of zip ties, though they do work.
    After August 17th I'll have a bit more time as I enter my final semester. Plan is to buy another fascia and use the original one as a mockup. This will allow me to cut much more precisely. I'll then spend some time in the hardware store and build slide rails into the top and bottom, as the charger is on the right. Finally, I'll devise some way to make the tablet fold out of the dash from the left, with hinges on the right. This is essential with the charger being on the right side. Furthermore, I've had to dismantle the dash about four times over the summer due to the tablet overheating while the car has been parked in the sun (I do ten hour clinical days and our parking lot has no cover).
    Hopefully I can make this happen by the end of September and I can post pics. All in all I still love the system - the sound is good, it performs quite well, and the navigation beats the crap outta the stock head unit.
    Hey Buddy hope all is well. Was just wondering if you got around to taking anymore pictures of your setup. Im going to be doing the exact same setup. I just ordered my double din dash kit today. Im also looking for a single din head unit, but instead of putting it behind the tablet, Im going to mount it in the arm rest compartment. That way I can control the volume of the tablet from there. I have a question for you. How was it charging the tablet via the 12v USB? Im planning on doing that as well. Any issues or things I need to know? Thanks again, and look forward to hearing from you.

    Hey man. I just did the exact same set up in my mkv jetta. I have a question for you about power. Do you have any issues with the tablet dying on you? I have tried tasker to help with that and it still doesn't work. I was trying to think of a way to have an external power button. Any suggestions?

    Hey I do have some pictures. Im still working out a few kinks with mine. I had the stock stereo relocated to the trunk and am currently working on a deck for it. I kept that because I wanted to retain the bluetooth hands free calling. Here are some pictures.

    Did you upgrade your tab? I thought you were using a fist gen one and that looks like a 2ns gen.

    If you did would you comment why? I currently have a forest gen and I`m debating ifd I need to upgrade or not as I just reflashed 4.2.2 from humberos.

    Thanks

    Vinny

    I have my Galaxy Tab 2.0 7" installed in the dash...I find that the battery charges enough on my 10-minute commute to keep the device in standby all night...IF I leave the GPS off/de-selected in settings AND have wireless off AND kill any active applications before letting it go into standby. You can automate this in Tasker, but the end result is that it loses about 2% per day of battery life while in standby.
    I have too much time and too little aggravation in my life, so I built a carPC. ;)

    Maybe it's to much to ask for from the OP but I'd love to know what build of Humberos you were using on your original Galaxy tab. I've yet to find anything stable other than the original version of Gingerbread that came on it.

    Hi everyone,

    I think that it looks great, but I have one question. How do I have to disassemble the dashboard of the car without make any scratch or break any plastic?

    Thanks in advance
