Here's another one that I found.
Hi guys. I want to install a Nexus 7 has my head unit. The problem is that I want FM radio, and the Nexus 7 doesn't have an FM antenna or tuner. I've found potentially 2 solutions to this. I'm wondering if you guys have any opinions or experience with these FM solutions.
1/ Directed HMHD1000I AM/FM/HD Tuner with USB interface
2/ USB DVB-T & RTL-SDR Realtek RTL2832U & R820T DVB-T Tuner Receiver
Please let me know if these are suitable options for FM radio on the Nexus 7. Thanks guys!
I only have the directed tuner right now.but I have used the usb ones and found the reception quite poor...the directed however is excellent...I believe I have seen a vidoe of it connected via a serial to usb cable to a tablet and a basic ui to controll it...seemed to work well.the directed tuner is designed for a moving vehicle and uses the standard car Ariel plug I would pick that one.
camo.b, thanks for the input! That was good information.
Lankin, what do you use now?
Sorry mate i just got the email notification for this...im not a programmers finger nail but i believe the directed hd is just simple serial communication....ie send command...tune up......send command tune down....if it was me i would ask mitch from mjs gadgets about the communication...he might share it...or is it possible to log/monitor the com port that that radio is connected to?
