So as of Android 3.1, your device can be USB host. So I'm thinking it should therefore be possible to fashion up an App that can talk to Mitch's cable (FTDI serial) and control the radio.
Is it possible? Is anyone up to the task?
plenty of enthusiasts in here, not enough developers

That's exactly what I've been looking for. I wonder if it will be distributed.
FTDI has android drivers + java code to get it all going, just need a developer...
video looks promising...

Sun, Come shine my way
May healing waters bury all my pain
Wind, Carry me home
The fabric of reality is tearing apart
The piece of me that died
Will return To live again
One problem for car use is that OTG host mode doesn't necessarily allow of charging AND using host mode depending on the tablet. Galaxy Tab 2 does not.
https://github.com/ksksue/FTDriver which works perfectly fine.
Prolific also provide free Android drivers http://www.prolific.com.tw/US/ShowPr...id=230&pcid=41 .. though I haven't used it. I have modified Ksksue's driver to work with both FTDI and Prolific chips. I will host it somewhere if anyone needs it.
