LG G Pad 8.3 build/design process with many questions.
I just ordered an LG G Pad 8.3 to perma mount into my car. The car is a 2005 VW Passat GLX Wagon. I'm planning to root it and use a stock version of Android 4.4.
Now I had some questions that maybe you guys would have some answers or solutions for me. The big thing I'm wondering is I want to setup the tablet so that it doesn't lock when power is supplied to it (through a relayed power connection) so that it stays on and doesn't lock or turn off the screen. But once the vehicle is off and the relay removes power to the tablet I want it to power off the screen and stay powered on via it's battery so that it can perform syncing services in the background like syncing my music collection from the house. I'm just curious if there is a way to achieve this?
Eventually things will get pretty crazy with this build, I've got a USB to I2S adapter which is going to feed a MiniSHARC from MiniDSP and then a high end dac with some other custom stuff. But for now I'm just going to focus on getting this to work the way I want. I was originally going to use an Odroid and a screen but I really wanted a nice quality 8" screen and also a tablet started to look better as it has all the GPS sensors and what not built in unlike the Odroid.
So I'm sure I'll have more questions as we move along. The tablet should be here tomorrow I believe and I still have to decide how I'm going to mount it. I'd really like to mold a pod into the top of my dash above the center console and try and make it look as stock as possible like it was supposed to be there, I have to take it and hold it up there and see if I can work that out though without it looking too abnormal.
