    Monkey board radio definitely looks interesting and would be awesome addition to this app.

    What does the companion app do?

    Nothing has been done with CAN yet. This was started for my car that literally has nothing electronic. Everything is being designed and built by me. It's taking a long *** time.
    I would really like to make this whole project module based so with an Arduino based Android accessory it does the conversion between the front end and whatever format your car has. For me it will be my own design, for others it will be CAN. The front end won't care, but Accessory will do the logic to convert between them.

    @bluc Android can't natively use the USB GPS. The companion app takes the signals from the GPS and uses the mock location provider to override the built in GPS receiver and use the signals received over USB. Simple to use, but requires you turn the mock location provider on in your developer settings.

    I take it back on the GPS issues. It was working for a short while, but after a reboot now it's not working again. D'oh. This is getting annoying. Time to scour craigslist for a 2013 N7 I guess.

    In that case I might use my nexus 7 instead of my odroid.

    Was hoping to use odroid for easier reverse camera setup.

    I would be more inclined to use odroid in "production". I'm using the Nexus 7 on my desk for development. Currently I'm planning using the Udoo board, but I'm not really happy with overall performance. Hopefully that will change when it comes time to actually install this thing

    Understandable. Navigation is huge, and it's what I'm trying to overhaul right now. It is seriously lacking. But the Android SDK is also lacking in the Nav area. What's available might not be enough for some people and may need to use Maps or Waze or whatever and just have a shortcut icon on the homescreen if that's what you choose. But hopefully I can come up with something that's somewhat comparable. We'll see how it goes.
    As for what caused my GPS woes, I have no idea. I can RMA my tablet, but of course it's out of warranty and then I'll be without a dev machine while it's gone. Damned if I do, damned if I don't...
