  • Genos 9" android tablet install with sync

    9 " levono android tablet

    Metra dash kit for a double din.

    Build went super fast one day total.

    Will have torque,pandora music app, google maps youtube . and a few other things.
    Hell I can even stream Netflicks for the kids in the back seat to watch.

    Ford sync with the Bluetooth makes it super easy to get sound. I still have the factory stereo behind the tablet so I kept suris raido and all the steering wheel controls. I can even change songs on pandora and music app wit the steering wheel.

    Android has an app called tasker that allows you to set up the tablet so that when it gets power it turns on the screen links bluetooth and wifi. then when you turn off the key and it senses that it is not charging it kills all apps and puts it in hibernate. So it works like a Double din touch screen Deck. Just alot bigger with 10x the features and only $250 bucks vs $1000

    First picture is before painting and during fitting. Rest are 95% finished just need to make a few changes I put the circle in the middle up top to be able to use the front facing camera but now that its in I dont like the look and I will be filling it in and covering it up in the near future.

    Last pic is the android TQ app. I will be making some custom screens for that

      That mod came out looking top notch! So the only thing physically connected is the DC power in? Did you have to use a DC to DC converter or just input the 13.8v from the truck? It looks super clean!

        The android Tablet uses 2.1 V dc to charge So I wired a Cig lighter to a switched source under my dash ad am using a Car charger USB plug like this

            The only connection is the power to the tablet yes.. Sync handles everything else via bluetooth

                If you watch the YouTube link above it shows the controls. The video was intended for the guys at the f150 forum.

                But the short answer is sync allows you to control volume and changing songs over Bluetooth and you can change it on the tablet also

                  Although I learned a lot from this forum.... They make it stupid hard for people to post here ?

                  I understand wanting to keep spam off the forum but this is just stupid. If Anyone wants to know more go to F150forums.com

                        Also, how do you use your phone if your Tablet is already connected to the stereo via Bluetooth

                          The sound using sync is outstanding

                            ford sync allows mutipal Bluetooth devices and it allows you to assign a primary phone so if I am listing to music and the phone rings it pauses the music on the tablet I answer the call when I end the call the music starts right back up

                              That is excellent
