    most double din friendly tablet I've found after searching endlessly

    Standard double din size is
    7 x 4

    Viewsonic Viewpad

    Name:  viewpad7-big-13-hands.jpg

Size:  71.6 KB

    7.06" x 4.33" x 0.45"

    should take slight dremeling to be able to install and remove it's the same tablet used in the hacked dvd drive install or should fit quite well behind most double dins with a good solid fit.

    This is a standard duble din kit fro a Audi 99-2004. It's only slightly bigger then the bezel and I didn't have to do any cutting of the dash.

    Pardon my ignorance, but how do you power up the tablet if you haven't used the car in a while or your trips are short and the battery dies?

    I use a kindle fire with a custom rom on it, the batter charges while car is in use, as long as you remember to shut the unit off when leaving the car it always has power. I can even leave it on for several hours if i know i will be coming back to my vehicle.

    For me, when the Tablet is in the dash it's plugged in to a car charger that only gets power when the car is on. I have the tablet screen time out set for 15 seconds and I have a setting in Car Home Ultra that says keep the screen on while Car home ultra is running and its receiving power. I also have a setting in car home ultra that says "Launch Car home ultra when it connects to the blue tooth receiver"
    So the scenario goes like this.

    In the Video I don't show it but I have a mini usb connector that I plug the tablet into behind the frame of the bezel.

    1.) car off, no power going to nexus 7, Nexus 7 "Sleeping" aka screen off, Blue tooth off.
    2.) Turn car on,
    -Power goes to bluetooth receiver and it starts broadcasting it's signal.
    -Power goes to Nexus 7 and the "Wakes up" Screen comes on, in 15 seconds the screen will go off but...
    -Nexus 7 connects with Bluetooth receiver and...
    -Car home ultra launches and because it is charging the screen stays on.
    3.) Turn off ignition.
    -Blue tooth receiver stops broadcasting
    -Nexus 7 stops charging so...
    -Screen dims and goes off in 15 seconds.

    No power drain when car is off.
