    I' sure you're right, these tab and android seems to be rock solid, with a correct configuration I bet you could go happy

    btw, where is the "keep screen on when in charge" setting? I miss that..!

    Under either the display settings or power there is a tick box for keeping the display on while charging.

    thanks win1forgipp, I'll look at that.
    btw the volume widget you speak about somewhere is very useful!

    Yes, new users got moderation for quite a while

    The volume widget (several available) I use seems to work great. They look like vertical rocker buttons.

    I think for the "radio" appeal these would be the best widgets to use.

    I was trying to find a volume gesture...a good one would be putting four fingers (3 fingers and a thumb for natural feel) on the screen as if you're grabbing a volume knob. Turn clockwise for volume up and counterclockwise for volume down. I haven't found anything yet and I am a long ways away from teaching myself enough java/xml to build a gesture widget.

    great inspiration in this thread for my build. Really like the magnetic latch that has been used by you and others, I plan on incorporating it.

    Your build is most like mine in terms of not having a head unit. Any advice on what kind of amp to get? My Nissan Xterra has 6 speakers (two of them being tweeters only). At least 4 of them are being replaced during my build. I'm doing a 2005 Nissan Xterra conversion.

    Any 4 or 5 chan amp will work. You just need to make sure it has enough power RMS to drive those speakers. You are only getting a signal from the Tab, nothing more. I'd use the 5th chan to power a small 10" woofer. Just something for some bass presence unless you intend on having a really loud system. Then I would get a seperate 2 chan and bridge the channels to the speaker. Just have to run all new power/ground wires.

    this looks great too! It seems better than Volume Widget because this has an indicator for the set volume level.

    Now I am in Milan, the first part of the trip goes incredibly well.. I am able to get directions from google navigator, playing music, making calls (tried only with a bluetooth headset), writing sms and gtalk messages with voice recognition, all with a single device with a beautiful screen definition, great touch sensitivity, great and fast software... info on music playing, using my entire address book synced with google, and so on..

    Who want a stock car radio again??
