'99 VW Gol mounting 7" tablet into head unit
I was thinking I could get a little help here with a project I'm eager to start on.
I have a 1999 VW Golf in which I want to replace my head unit with a 7" tablet. This is the tablet I'm thinking of: http://www.pointofview-online.com/sh...product_id=357
It has GPS, 3G and a micro sd slot for storage, and it is cheap also, but runs smooth (I've tested it).
Now the thing I need help with is power.
* My previous head unit has a 16 pin connector, which I find hard to look up pinouts for. Does anyone have info on that? Seems to be a plug combining A and B standard plugs.
* The tablet requires 5V and 2000 mA
* Powering an amp to go with it (what kind of amp would cut it?)
I do not want to use the cigarrette lighter to power the tablet since I would like to be able to use that to charge my phone or something else. Could I wire the old plug to power the tablet and amp?
