Computer VS Android Tablet???
I'm doing my initial research for my new install. But can't decide. My Android knowledge is pretty poor, so bare with me. This is what I would like:
Music, movies, pictures. - I know this works.
FM radio (not internet radio) - I don't plan on getting 3G so a normal receiver would be good.
Steering Wheel remote (I have a Ford Focus MK1) - I've seen a lot of talk but no go. Would be nice to see one working.
Volume knob - I have a griffin powermate that would be nice to use. If not, I'll use a potentiometer.
GPS - Built in GPS and the right app can do this.
Removable - I want an OEM build plus being able to clip it in/out.
Ext HDD for mass storage - I use WD passports, would they work?
Bluetooth Handsfree with external mic - I have an iPhone that I would like to be able to use hand free with a tablet and ext mic mounted near me. Can I do this?
Perhaps TV, DAB radio etc (not essential, would be nice. Again not via internet) - I probably won't do this as additional aerials would probably be needed. But saying that I change my mind all the time. So it would be nice to know.
I know a computer can do all these with additional components, but with a lot more wiring.
I am quite happy with the frontends that I've seen, and tasker.
