    Just installed it the changes are what i had in mind at the moment the app seems to be stuck in an update loop, everytime I open it it tries to update but crashs in the process if I cancel the update and try to setup the homescreen my changes do not apply. But will be awesome once working.

    I've just pushed a new apk. If you've setup your homescreen already, I'm sorry the DB has been upgraded and needed to be flushed. I'll try and avoid that in the future. But now you can customize all the homescreen buttons as well as the side bar buttons. Each button can do any of the built in methods, or call an external application. Cool.

    so if I understand correctly the side buttons are customizable? I do like this frontend and I would love to have some control of things from my nexus7 I have in my dash. being a noob for programming Arduino, Do you have stuff that we can get that has already be developed? Lastly will what you have done work on my Nexus 7 2012 ( with Timur's ROM)

    THANKS

    I just tried it on my Nexus 7 (2013) to see what it has..

    WOW, I know I will be spending some time installing this and setting it up. I like the few things i saw just playing around for a few minutes. I looking forward to more info regarding the Arduino Due, I would really like to add that in the the car for hardware control of some stuff

    Yes I've made all buttons customizable. Right now I've been reworking code like crazy to clean up and improve things. Example the custom buttons are new. My current area is nav. It's been lacking for a long time and I plan on sinking some hours into it.
    As for the Arduino side it's also been getting a lot of work. However it's still not ready for general public. I'm still coming up with my plan for the Arduino side of things.

    Yes it will work on the 2012 Nexus 7. That's the device I've used to do all my work with. I am however having issues with KitKat and GPS not working that in looking into.

    SO I just tried it on my nexus 7 (2012) and I am not sure how to set-up the buttons. Everytime I try a long press on them in the set-up the app crashes. Now that said I am running Timur's USB-ROM which is based off of Cyanogenmod 10.1 (4.2 Jellybean) but I do see how it works on my Nexus 7 (2013) with 4.4.4 and it seems fine

    So I've spent all night trying to get my GPS to work and I've gotten no where. I've installed 6 different ROMS, and non of them work. I guess I need to look into getting a new device

    SNOtwistR, thanks for the tip. I looked but I'm not sure which one you're talking about. Most of the GPS things on SolarBotics seem to be Arduino based.

    My current situation regarding GPS, I've got GPS working on Arduoino. The built in GPS on my Nexus 7 doesn't work. I've tried using mock locations and it still doesn't work. That suggests to me that it's a problem with the location provider service. But I'm not sure. I'm going to try and warranty my tablet (right, it's two years old). I guess the next choice is to purchase something new. I'll have to look around to see what I can find.
