    I see you're using the galaxy mount as I am. Are you happy with it mounted that low? I chose to just replace my headunit altogether since I never used it anyways.

        yeah its a little lower than i wanted but very useful being that low than i figured it would be..i am still iffy about replacing my head unit with the tab..i thought about replacing my head unit with tab only if it would be a clean install(which im not good at modding my dash and making it look as good as stock),and possibly installing and aftermarket radio where the tab is now..that way i can have the convenience of a radio for the everyday in and out of the car drives throughout the day along with the coolness the Tab brings that a radio doesnt.

          I hear you on the fabbing. I live in an apartment so I do not have the luxury of a garage and therefore limited space, tools and supplies for fabbing/modding. Plus I'm no professional fabber so i just rig it...imma professional rigger

          I say go for it. Just think about what you want out of your tab and that may help you decide on how you want to mount it and whether to keep your headunit or use other integrations (bluetooth, amp, etc). Maybe think of a solution that requires as least modding of your factory stuff so you can revert if your build does not turn out as desired. The cool thing is you learn from your modding and if not perfect you know what to do different next time. Its really a learning process from what I have experienced.

            You can take a look at how I used that Galaxy mount that you are using. It's not as extravagant as other tab mounts but it works like I want it. Plus I can revert or upgrade to 10" tab if I wanted ...(doubt I ever will).

              I'm thinking I may need to buy this OEM cradle for the Tab and see if I can modify it to use with my ProCips mount...

                The OEM mount is great..probably not as good as the one iPad has as the only connection for the mount is for charging but all of the ports are accessible.

                  I'm currently planning a tablet install on my 06 Civic Ex sedan as well. But I am planning to replace the head unit. I'm trying to decide between the Galaxy or the Ipad2.

                    Cool. I replaced my headunit also. I think either tablet is just as good. Probably a matter of whether you are an apple fan and pay for everything or android fan and sky's the limit

                      ya I read your thread. Nice job. I'm trying to figure everything out though on mine. I've got an Audison Bit One, and I also need head rest monitors for the kids in the back. If I go with the Galaxy 10.1 I want to make sure i can figure out how to get the video feed to them. I'm not yet seeing a way to do that. I've figured it out for the Ipad2 but I'm not sure i want to go the "what everyone else is doing" route. I'm with T-Mobile and I'm going to be getting the Samsung Galaxy S phone so I want to be able to tether it to the tablet, and retain all my apps. I think I read on here somewhere that you can do that or something.

                      Still trying to figure it all out, like Rooting and Rom and all that stuff makes no sense to me! I have lots of research to do still!

                      But mine will be a complete custom flush mounted application. I'm thinking I may even incorporate an actuator or something too. But I don't know if I'll get that carried away yet!

                        For the headrest monitors you just need to introduce a splitter or something that you can plug your tab for input (galaxy has hdmi) and connections that will output to the monitors. Check the forums I dont think there are quite that have headrest monitors. Imma do the same eventually.

                        Sent from my ultimate Galaxy Tab using tapatalk ...and I'm probably in my car : )

                          Not the Galaxy 10.1 doesn't have it. At least not on board. I still have to go from the Galaxy to a usb out to go to the Bit one. Well it's the iStreamer that converts the digital signal to the analog signal that I send to the Bit One. My volume will be controlled via the bit one remote. The HDMI is a good input/output, but the only thing I fear about it, is the vibration and ti coming loose. However I only have Pioneer Monitors which only offer a standard input output of R/L audio and Video. So there are some things to get around. I guess I don't have to have the video now. I can always wait for the adapters to come out and then address it as they do.

                            I think I found a way to get the video and audio from the HDMI port on this, maybe you guys could shed some light on if it will work or not. Here's the link to my other thread on here that I started for this. That way I don't muddy up this thread.
