    Genos 9" android tablet install with sync

    9 " levono android tablet

    Metra dash kit for a double din.

    Build went super fast one day total.

    Will have torque,pandora music app, google maps youtube . and a few other things.
    Hell I can even stream Netflicks for the kids in the back seat to watch.

    Ford sync with the Bluetooth makes it super easy to get sound. I still have the factory stereo behind the tablet so I kept suris raido and all the steering wheel controls. I can even change songs on pandora and music app wit the steering wheel.

    Android has an app called tasker that allows you to set up the tablet so that when it gets power it turns on the screen links bluetooth and wifi. then when you turn off the key and it senses that it is not charging it kills all apps and puts it in hibernate. So it works like a Double din touch screen Deck. Just alot bigger with 10x the features and only $250 bucks vs $1000

    First picture is before painting and during fitting. Rest are 95% finished just need to make a few changes I put the circle in the middle up top to be able to use the front facing camera but now that its in I dont like the look and I will be filling it in and covering it up in the near future.

    Last pic is the android TQ app. I will be making some custom screens for that

    That mod came out looking top notch! So the only thing physically connected is the DC power in? Did you have to use a DC to DC converter or just input the 13.8v from the truck? It looks super clean!

    The only connection is the power to the tablet yes.. Sync handles everything else via bluetooth

    If you watch the YouTube link above it shows the controls. The video was intended for the guys at the f150 forum.

    But the short answer is sync allows you to control volume and changing songs over Bluetooth and you can change it on the tablet also

    Although I learned a lot from this forum.... They make it stupid hard for people to post here ?

    I understand wanting to keep spam off the forum but this is just stupid. If Anyone wants to know more go to F150forums.com
