I'm in search of some answers to some questions I have that are likely to be pretty basic.
To start out, my goal is to replace the double din stock head unit in my 2005 Silverado 2500 with a nexus 7.
I know where I'm going to get the power for it in order for it to stay on for 10s after the ignition is turned off, but from there on I'm not for sure how to do everything.
So after wiring in a relay and a DC-DC converter, what comes next? A usb hub? This gentleman summed it up pretty nice on one forum I found, saying
Edit:Figured this out after browsing http://mehrvarz.github.io/usb-host-m...gement-nexus7/Quote:
Yes, ignition->relay-> 12v 3A usb converter-> usb hub -> Nexus 7/DAC/USB Storage/Joycon Steering wheel controller
It's likely I'll wire it like so: http://mehrvarz.github.io/img/otg-chrg-opt1.png
If this is correct, it's pretty simple and shouldn't be a problem for me.
Onto my next question, once I get the nexus 7 powered up, how do I connect it to my stock speakers? I know very little about car audio. I do know that my truck has a bose system in it with a built in amp, will that work? I've read that an amp is necessary with this setup, even if it's a basic 4 channel amp.
Oh and I'll be using Timur's kernal for my nexus 7, I don't suspect any difficulty there as I'm pretty good with computers and software.
Thanks for any help!
