    SNO certainly tempting, given that the si474x is automotive grade unlike the si470x. However, I can not find anything on linux/android support (no plans on using windows) unlike the si470x chip. Have...

    well, there is certainly enough space in the double din housing for all of that. As for the nice ARM board, I am currently playing around with the cubieboard. Quite nice to have android on nand, no...

    Here is a short demo of the working button interface tested with a youtube video. It seems though that the menu button doesn't work in full screen mode. On the home screen it works without any...

    Printing was done by sculpteo. I am very happy with the result and it was extremely fast.

    Just a little over a week and I got my housing back. The 3D printing result is amazing... without any modification both part fit together perfectly. Even the front and back panel connection mechanism...

    Thanks redheadedrod for all the additional info, it is hard to keep track of all the new boards. I guess for my build anything other then LVDS/display expansion connection (as with the pandaboard) is...

    @gpborges
    The Chipsee expansion board does NOT come with the GSM modules soldered. Chipsee seems to be a bit messy with their information policy. If you check the PDF file for the board you will see...

    @ redheadedrod:
    well I guess the audio out is an issue with all boards. I use an amp with 4 input/output (works well with the 8 speaker setup in my car, though I do not have a sub). I was looking at...

    "..... 3) Google Play wont allow me to install some apps like Google Maps. I think all I need is a build.prop change ...."
    I changed the...

    daclothe,

    I am not quite sure, are you using a usb keyboard module or are you talking about the chipsee expansion board? In the case with the expansion board the key layout is handled by the...

    thanks radalv,
    to answer your question regarding connecting external media. I had not played around with it, I either used the sdcard to play music or used streaming. So I tried to connect my ipod...

    Thanks adzxjr, it took me quite a bit to get to this stage.

    I had a quick look at your device, and seems to be a nice little device for the car. Your best bet to get it going is to see if anyone...
