    Newest Nexus 7 for install

    I just received a Nexus 7 yesterday for an install I'm about to do in my car. This is a brand new (received 11/7/13) model and from what I see, it appears they now have audio in as well as out from the headphone jack and it also has wireless charging.

    I'm wondering if there is still a need for a USB DAC with the newest Nexus?

    Secondly, can anyone tell me if rooting is required for my project... besides running Carhome Ultra, Torque and Tasker - all of which do not require rooting, I also want to have rear view cam through a USB video device, and control a Directed 1000i tuner from the Nexus... is rooting required for those apps?

    thank you,

    afaik for USB Client devices (except usb storage with media importer) you need rooting.

    wouldn't use the usb port, as mentioned in your other thread
